How I’ll Kill You

This book about sisters who enter a pact to kill off their boyfriends reminded me a female You (Caroline Kepnes). In triplicate. Each of the sisters has a skill that makes their kills efficient and virtually untraceable. Their loyalty to each other is what holds them together and each knows the other one will be there for them.

But what if they allow someone else in?

When Sissy (Jade) gets too close to her neighbor, the sisters get restless. When she gets too close to her target, Edison, they get downright mutinous!

There was strong character development as we see the triplets background and how it played into their strong adulthood bond. We see how Jade pulls the “real” Edison out, showing that he might possibly have a dark side too. There were some moments that made me laugh, and some that made me sad (“His dead wife sleeps forever in the albums in the fireplace”). But the overall tone of the book is lighthearted and entertaining. I know that’s a crazy thing to say about a dark thriller – but read it and you’ll see what I mean!
