The members of Don’t Get Mad aren’t just mad anymore . . . they’re afraid. And with Margot in a coma and Bree stuck in juvie, it’s up to Olivia and Kitty to try to catch their deadly tormentor. But just as the girls are about to go on the offensive, Ed the Head reveals a shocking secret that turns all their theories upside down. The killer could be anyone, and this time he—or she—is out for more than just revenge.

The girls desperately try to discover the killer’s identity as their personal lives are falling apart: Donté is pulling away from Kitty and seems to be hiding a secret of his own, Bree is under house arrest, and Olivia’s mother is on an emotional downward spiral. The killer is closing in, the threats are becoming more personal, and when the police refuse to listen, the girls have no choice but to confront their anonymous friend . . . or die trying

I received this book for free from The Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

It took everything in me not to jump into this book after finishing Get Even – especially after that ending! But I am glad that I was able to have some restraint and let the events of Get Even sink in.

There was SO much going on in Get Dirty. The overall plot ARC of who the killer is, the other secrets revealed and the addition of POVs. But the best part is, everything seamlessly pieces together without leaving us hanging. It’s fast pace leaves no time to think things out you have to hang on and go with it!

Right from the start, what everyone (including me) thought they knew about the killer was wrong, leaving everyone back to square one. I also loved how there are SO many additional people added to the fray – and it really added to the intensity.

I loved all the characters, especially our main four: Kitty, Margot, Bree and Olivia. Their personalities are so different and they all work so well together.

That being said – the killer was my third guess (LOL) but I didn’t feel like we got enough information and/or explanation on how they were able to pull it off. Everything felt TOO easy, ya know?

Small issue aside – I adored this book! It was so much fun! I highly recommend for anyone that loves a good mystery/thriller with the added flare of building friendships.

        Thanks so much for offering!! Normally I would definitely take you up on that, but we’re headed off for an extended vacation in Colorado soon, so I’m trying to stick to ebooks if at all possible, and I just picked this one up from Edelweiss. (Don’t want to haul too many paper books with me.) It was really nice of you to offer, though – I appreciate it!!
