Next Girl to Die by Dea Poirier


Solving the case will avenge her sister—unless the killer finds her first.

It’s been fifteen years since Claire Calderwood’s sister, Rachel, was brutally murdered in their small hometown in Maine. Claire has finally carved out a life for herself as a homicide detective in Detroit, but the past comes calling when the local police back home ask for her help with a murder eerily similar to Rachel’s.

Still haunted by Rachel’s cold case, Claire returns home, hoping to solve the crime and finally put her grief to rest. As she starts investigating, the last thing she needs is tenacious journalist Noah Washington asking questions she’s not ready to answer. But like her, Noah won’t give up until he finds the truth—and Claire reluctantly finds herself relying on him more and more when disturbing new details about Rachel’s death come to light.

When the killer strikes once again, Claire knows he’s not done. Now he’s set his sights on Claire, who will have to find the courage she needs to survive a deadly confrontation years in the making.

Claire is from a small town where her sister was brutally murdered. When a new murder is committed that is eerily like her sister’s, Claire is called back to her small island town to help solve the case.

Noah is a reporter who knows far more about these cases and wants to help. I found his character almost endearing because of how much he wanted to help. Claire is incredibly wary of him at first, mainly due to his profession. However, when Noah is able to prove himself useful, Claire is all in.

Claire and Noah will have to worry about small town gossip, missing information, and teasing out who they can trust and who is lying to them.

This story is full of twists, turns, and complexity that allows the reader to truly search for the killer while reading. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and loved how it ended. I can't wait for the next one to come out.
