Death by Bikini

Just in case you forgot, the Spooky reading Challenge started tomorrow!! I am so excited! And on October 14, Linda Gerber's new book Trance, which I just might do for a Spotlight Monday next week, is coming out and I am super excited for it! In honor of that, I decided that I would review all of her Death by . . . books! They are amazing, let me tell you that!

Title: Death by Bikini

Author: Linda Gerber

Rating: 5 stars

Review: Aphra Behn Connolly, lives on a tropical island, that would be paradise, if only her mom was there and if there were more kids her age. Aphra's mom, a government agent, mysteriously left Aphra and her dad a few years ago. Now Aphra is stuck on an island with no kids her age and is extremely bored. So when a family comes that has a son Aphra's age, you can imagine she is happy, but what she didn't expect was a murder on the same day. Now it is up to Aphra to figure out who she can trust and who she can't.
I fell in love with Death by Bikini at first sight, the summary sounded awesome and I thought the cover was extremely cool! And then when I started reading it, I fell in love again! You might be wondering why I love it so much, so I will tell you.

Aphra was a great funny character, who was incredibly fun to read about and listen to her thoughts. She has an excellent voice. I also really liked Aphra's friend Seth, who was just right for Aphra, he was extremely brave and wanted to keep Aphra safe when danger cam about. Which happened a ton.
I also enjoyed Gerber's style of writing, it was great and it made me want to keep reading.
The plot was great, I won't tell you much about it because I don't want to spoil it. All I can tell you is that a girl is found strangled, by her Bikini strings! Isn't that really a unique?! So take my word for it, because Death by Bikini was awesome.
