I absolutely LOVED the cattiness in this book. I feel like I haven’t read a book I wanted to keep reading in a while but this one kept me hooked. The drama was perfect and enticing and the characters were just my level of bitchy. ( )

One of Us is Dead by Jeneva Rose is a 2022 Blackstone publication.

A group of ultra rich friends congregates at a Boutique salon, making Jenny, the proprietor very successful, in the process. But, when one of the ladies goes through a public, high profile divorce, it shakes them all to the core and one of them will wind up dead- but which one?

The story has a fresh approach- challenging the reader to guess not only who the murderer is, but who the victim might be.

Although I have never seen a single episode, It seems obvious within the first few chapters, that the author is going for something along the lines of a Real Housewives of… atmosphere- signaling this could be one of those fun, snarky sort of crime thrillers. Naturally, these books are not intended to be taken too seriously, so I settled in for what promised to be a nice bit of escapist fiction.

Unfortunately, by the half way mark I was becoming annoyed with the characters, the introduction of unnecessary, unrelatable material, and found the characters and the dialogue were not at all funny or witty- they were just downright mean- which is not creative, nor is it entertaining in the least.

It got old in a hurry, and I found myself feeling rather bored with the whole thing and these extremely unlikable characters. But I was thinking the story might have a highly original twist somewhere down the line, so I stuck with it, only to find the conclusion to be unbelievably ridiculous and even convoluted.

Overall, this book appears to be well-received, so I’m an outlier here- but for me, it was yet another 2024 dud.

fun fun fun! rich, mean, gossipy, women who hang out at a salon! yes please! WE LOVE DRAMA! it's giving Desperate Housewives... of Buckhead, Georgia. this wasn't too serious until the end of the book, which i saw coming. it's full of unbelievable catty behavior and delicious backstabbing among the "friends" all for good drama. and when the claws come out they come out fast! you won't want to put this one down once you started. great characters all around!! if you're into audiobooks this one is a great listen ( )

With awareness there are (many) readers who enjoyed this, it's biggest plus was that it read fast and was over quickly. Everything else was stinky cheese polished with hype and marketing dollars, a coordinated effort deserving a full star. ( )
