About this deal

I also was actually a huge fan of the love triangle that was happening 😅 it’s been a while since I’ve read an interesting love triangle.

Mystery and intrigue are on the weekend agenda, and Jess and her friends might just be walking unwittingly into a trap. Now that I've had some time to reflect on it, I can honestly, and confidently say this novel will very likely be one of my top reads for 2021, and with the number of thrillers I read, that’s saying quite a bit! I have read a very similar plot to this one before so I had to try not to let that weaken my enjoyment of this one. Perfect for fans of dark academia, the well-drawn characters will remind many of their own college days. The reunion from hell ends up having some positive effects, though, and the story ends on a high note.Our other characters and suspects are star athlete Frankie,brain ( that fits with both for Jess and our victim Heather), golden boy Mint who was long time boyfriend of Jess and left her for social media influencer princess Courtney ( even though she is not the member of unlucky number seven, she’s involved into murder investigation by being married with Mint), sweet, social, loyal friend and Coop’s new fiancée Caro, shy, lovely Jack who was also boyfriend of Heather has been accused to kill her but Eric finally knows he was not the one who killed her sister so he didn’t involve in his murder investigation. The first section of this book is focused on scene-setting, with an emphasis on establishing character backstories and developing a strong sense of place. This is definitely a character driven story, but don't let that convince you that it's slow or boring. He has been obsessed with investigating his sister's murder and also the secrets of the past group of friends and their contacts.

All of the characters are so fleshed out and it was such a great mystery trying to figure out what actually happened in the past. I know I would have loved this one a lot more if I hadn’t read a similar book before, but sometimes that’s just how it goes! When Jess receives an invitation to her class reunion as part of Duquette’s Homecoming, she knows this is the moment she has been waiting for, where she can prove to her classmates once and for all just how perfectly her life has turned out.The past fills us in on the present cast and we get a good feel for what has shaped them and who they really are. A fast-paced thriller set in a tense academic setting, In My Dreams I Hold A Knife is a page-turning mystery that follows a set of untrustworthy characters who could all be to blame.
