Summary

Lyla Moody loves her sleepy little town of Sweet Mountain, Georgia. She likes her job as a receptionist for her uncle's private investigative firm, her fellow true-crime obsessed Jane Doe members are the friends she's always wanted, and her parents just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. But recently, with her best friend Melanie on vacation and her ex-boyfriend and horrible cousin becoming an item and moving in next door to her, her idyllic life is on the fritz. The cherry on top of it all is finding Carol, a member of the club, dead and shoved into a suitcase, left at Lyla's front door. 

Unusual circumstances notwithstanding, with Carol's heart condition, the coroner rules Carol's death undetermined. But when they discover that the suitcase belongs to Melanie, who had returned from her vacation the following morning, Sweet Mountain police begin to suspect Lyla's best friend. Determined that police are following the wrong trail, Lyla begins to seek out the real killer — that is, until she becomes the one sought after. Now, finding the truth could turn her into the killer's next plot twist....

Maybe a 2

On Borrowed Crime is flat with uninteresting characters and a plot with a glimmer of hope. The premise of the book is actually interesting, but, I couldn't connect with the characters. I also figured out who did it and I really didn't care why. Dina Pearlman isn't my favorite narrator and she didn't help. I didn't finish the book and returned it.

GREAT FIRST IN A NEW SERIES

LOVED THIS BOOK. LILA AND HER FAMILY SND FRIENDS ARE LIKEABLE CHARACTERS. THE STORYLINE HAD JUST ENOUGH TWISTS AND TURNS, AND THERE ARE ENOUGH JUICY CHARACTERS TO PROMISE MORE INTRIGUE AND FUN FOR A LONG TIME.
