I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the suspects lined themselves up nicely and I had picked out who I guessed was responsible but no matter how guilty they made themselves look, I was mistaken. This didn't lessen my enjoyment for the book and ending with the final twists actually making sense once I had read them. 
This was another book I needed to keep reading to find out if they would figure it all out in time and who wrote the diary entries. There was more than enough history to the characters to keep me interested and twists and turns in the day to day entries to make it a good read for me. 
I'm so pleased I got to read this thanks to NetGalley and HarperCollins UK, One More Chapter, I will now be looking for more books by this author, I enjoyed it that much!

Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for sharing this book with me!

After reading and enjoying The Perfect Couple by Jackie Kabler I couldn't wait to get my hands on this. This book surprised me, I thought I knew where it was going and then about two thirds in bam, I was thrown for a loop. I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING. I really liked that this story is told from the point of view of a potential victim, who also happens to be a crime reporter, as well as from the different police officers on the case. 

This plot was unique and very intriguing and I had a hard time putting it down because I really wanted to know what would happen next, leaving me begging to find out the who and the why. I loved being surprised by the twists and the fact that the writing style was so engrossing. I found the way the chapters were formatted as a countdown really heightened the intensity, especially the later chapters. What I didn't like was the very last chapter...I was happy enough to let some of the unbelievable parts pass but that last chapter was just too much for me to be able to give this four stars.

I was super excited to be approved for this because the premise reminded me of The Hit List by Holly Seddon, but unfortunately this was NOT it. First of all, you find a murder diary that lines up with an actual real life murder and you're like HMMMMM maybe this is serious? Maybe not? What do you think magic eight ball?! Then she takes it to the police and theyre like wow interesting, hope this isn't accurate teehee. Also, so much filler text about nonsensical, unimportant crap. I had to tap out. 

Thank you for the ARC.

This book was sent to me by Netgalley electronically for review.  This is an unusual book with so many surprises that it is difficult to keep up sometimes.  The protagonist receives a book that contains a murder list.  Will she be last?  Is it someone from her past who knows her secrets?  Nothing is as it seems in this story.  This author is talented and gifted in weaving an ingenious story about people who are just not what/who they seem...just when I thought I had discerned the mystery, another hint was given.  I liked this book.  I really liked this book.  I am not sure that I like the spoilers...but perhaps there was no other way to end this book of puzzles...a book of puzzles...just as one is solved...another one arises...don't miss this is a can't put down...

Mind numbing. 
Mary receives a blank diary as a present, she thinks nothing of it. Until she opens the diary, and sees it’s not blank after all…
Is this some kind of sick joke? But…it’s the end of January now. And a woman named Lisa was murdered in Oxford on 1st January.
Does that mean there really is a killer out there, planning to commit a new murder on the first of each month? And is the Mary due to be killed on 1st April her?
Loved this. 
Thanks to NetGalley and Harper Collins UK One More Chapter for giving me an advance copy.

What would you do? Mary’s new diary isn’t as new as she thought, there are entries for the first day of the month. The entries are short and simple…. the name of a woman, the name of a city and the words, kill her. It might seem like a bad joke, except that the first entry has proven to be true, a Lisa in Oxford has been murdered. And if that’s true, is the Mary that’s going to be murdered on May 1st, her?

Murder Predicted…
When Mary receives a diary for Christmas she thinks nothing of it. So little of it, in fact, that she puts it to one side for charity. Briefly glancing through it first, much later in January, she finds…the murder list. With the first murder already having happened as the diary predicts, she goes to the police. She cannot begin to comprehend the catalogue of chaos that will ensue as each murder occurs as predicted. Mary knows that she may be the fourth predication. As the plot picks up, it proceeds swiftly to a wholly bizarre and action packed denouement and is never as predictable as you may at first imagine. A seriously fun, one sit read with a likeable main protagonist who has her own secrets, a compulsive and enjoyable narrative and an entertaining storyline.
