Everything Sad is Untrue
Rosaline has finally figured out that she wants her best friend Rob to be more than her friend and things are just starting to heat up when her cousin Juliet, moves back to town.

Warning to those who need it... the book does contain references to sexual activity as one of the characters decides to "do it".

I love a good mystery, and although I correctly guessed the murderer in the first chapter, I still thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns.
