    After reading two other thrillers by Eileen Cook I knew that I had to read You Owe Me a Murder. Again, just like with the other two books that I had read previously I found myself quite engrossed from the very start. Kim is a seventeen year old high school student who had signed up to go on the school trip to London back when she and her boyfriend were together. Having just broken up with him though she’s not looking forward to a couple of weeks in a foreign country watching him with his new girl After reading two other thrillers by Eileen Cook I knew that I had to read You Owe Me a Murder. Again, just like with the other two books that I had read previously I found myself quite engrossed from the very start. Kim is a seventeen year old high school student who had signed up to go on the school trip to London back when she and her boyfriend were together. Having just broken up with him though she’s not looking forward to a couple of weeks in a foreign country watching him with his new girl. When trying to back out of the trip her parents insist she still goes so Kim finds herself sitting next to Nicki as she heads off across the ocean. Nicki and Kim seem to completely hit it off as they both air their complaints to one another which leads to some joking around about swapping murders to make each happy. Thinking this was all some drunken ranting the two part in London but before Kim knows it her ex has a tragic accident…. or was it murder? Again as I have found with the author’s other works this book seems like you have all the cards on the table from the very beginning but yet still pulled me in and wouldn’t let go. There’s something about her style that makes me want to turn the pages faster to find out just what really will happen to these characters in the end. While not super twisty I still completely enjoyed this latest thriller giving it 4 1/2 stars and will definitely be back for more in the future from Eileen Cook. I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley. For more reviews please visit https://carriesbookreviews.com/

    I was super excited to get my approval for You Owe Me a Murder!! Let me start out by saying I love the title of this book! It's catchy and pulls you in right away. Kim travels to Europe for a study abroad trip and her ex boyfriend and his new girlfriend happen to be on the same trip. Talk about awful!

Kim travels to Europe for a study abroad trip and her ex boyfriend and his new girlfriend happen to be on the same trip. Talk about awful! But, her luck seems to be arising when she meets a new girl Nicki on the plane and they instantly bond as friends. Soon things start to heat up with gossip between Nicki and Kim. Nicki suggests that they make a "list" of why Nicki should murder Kim's ex-boyfriend and why Kim should murder Nicki's alcoholic mother. Kim laughs off this list and falls asleep on the plane thinking that this is harmless. But, the next thing she knows.... Kim's ex boyfriend is killed from jumping or being pushed off a train. What is going on?! Who did this and is Nicki somehow involved? This was an entertaining wild ride that definitely leaves you on the edge of your seat. Eileen does a nice job of adding plenty of suspense to the story but it was a tad predictable for me and knew where the story was going. Kim is soon blackmailed by Nicki and this got a bit over the top for me with the back and forth chase. The middle to end was lagging a tad for me as well but kept reading because I was hoping for that bang of a buck ending with whiplash!!! But, unfortunately the ending was a big let down for me. I felt Eileen took the easy way out with the ending and was hoping for a huge twist. Overall, this was entertaining but was just hoping for a little bit more in this YA thriller.

She's miserable and dreading the trip and more than a little angry at Connor. Yes, this sounds familiar, I know. Then we meet Nicki. She's British, on her way home, and even though she's a year or two older than Kim, she gets it. Gets her. They talk, have fun, snd Nicki talks her into doing something that leads to something else and wow, do things start happening. Unexpected things--not plot wise, not at first, but soon there are cracks everywhere in everyone. No one, not Nicki, not Connor, and most interestingly, Kim, is not whom they seem to be. I loved that! Ms. Cook takes the ya thriller genre and gives it a good shove (ha! couldn't resist) and what results is a novel that doesn't just dare to go dark--it dives into it. I was interested when I first started reading, but by about two thirds through, I realized I didn't know how it would end and couldn't put the book down. I had to keep reading! Had. to. I mean, there's the expected ya ending--the nice neat safe bow-- but I thought "could you Owe Me A Murder go there? Would it?" It does, and even veteran thriller reader me got chills when I reached the end. There's no bow, no safety, just a mindblowing, fantastic ending. By the end, I was in awe of Kim and more than a little afraid of her. Of what she did. Of what she'd done. Of what she might one day do. Last three lines: "You know what they say: Travel changes a person." I nodded and gazed out the window. He had no idea. Dammmmmmmn. Mind=blown. All the stars for this highly, highly recommended novel that dares to be different. That knows there's darkness in all of us.

Lately I’ve been really into thrillers, and usually YA thrillers aren’t my favorite, but this one really captured the fun of other thrillers I’ve read. This book is about Kim, who meets a stranger at an airport during a flight delay who she bonds with – and unwittingly ends up in the middle of a murder plot. The plot itself is pretty far fetched but it was also pretty anxiety inducing. I kept thinking, if I were in her shoes, what would I do? Most of the things I could come up with, the book had answers for. There weren’t really any moments of wanting to scream at the main character for making stupid decisions, because the plot really covers all bases. Kim was a smart character, which is refreshing in a thriller. She thinks things through, is great at solving puzzles, just an overall intelligent character, which I love. However, my favorite character was Alex. He was the sweetest and seemed like someone I would have been best friends with when I was Kim’s age. I liked them together and thought it was a sweet relationship. Nicki was an interesting antagonist, she was mysterious and had intelligence to match Kim’s. Sometimes she just really made you want to hit her, though. The story kept me guessing, with lots of misdirections and plot twists, which are my favorite! My only gripe with the story was that I felt the ending wasn’t wholly satisfying. Some things were left out that I would have been interested to hear more about. It’s just a small complaint, though. I really loved the experience of reading this book. If you’re looking for a mostly-satisfying, super fun YA thriller, you should definitely give this one a shot. It pulled me out of my reading slump and was just a ton of fun to read and write about! I look forward to reading more of Eileen Cook’s work in the future.

    This was so not what I expected it to be and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. Even though I marked this as a thriller, it was more psychologically tense and slow-paced. I rather liked how the author created an unreliable narrator - we think the MC is a good guy, but the more we learn about her, we see she's not all that nice. I found her to be quite unlikeable actually XD Anyways, I still enjoyed reading from her perspective. All secondary characters were interesting as well because they This was so not what I expected it to be and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised.

I found her to be quite unlikeable actually XD Anyways, I still enjoyed reading from her perspective. All secondary characters were interesting as well because they were portrayed as real people - they were all "grey", not evil but not really good either. My fave was Alex - my precious little baby ♥ He was so "adorkable" and I just wanted him to be happy. When it comes to the mystery, I think it was well done. The beginning might be a little slow, because we don't know anything yet, but the more information we get about Nicki, the more interesting it gets. Honestly, she was such a fascinating character and if it weren't for her, this book would be a 2 star read for me but instead, I gave it 3.5 stars. The ending was also completely unexpected and I loved it, although I wish we learned more about what happened to the characters afterwards, but oh well... Basically, what I liked: Alex, Nicki, the ending + the whole book is filled with little lies and unreliable people What I didn't like: the MC was sometimes too unlikeable for my taste + I wish there was an epilogue or something + the MC sometimes made stupid decisions + now that I think about it, we don't get almost any information until about 70% + the MC cried every 10 pages -.- A decent book if you're looking for a different mystery read that focuses more on the characters than the action :)

    *2.25 ACCUSED STARS* I had pretty high hopes for this because I loved One of Us is Lying and this was supposed to be quite similar. However, it was a bit of a trainwreck to be honest. Kim made so many stupid decisions that only got her more into trouble, I wanted to bang her head against the wall so many times!

I knew I had to read this the second I found out Eileen Cook was releasing a new book!

You Owe Me a Murder follows a similar type of story in line with Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith, which was then made into a film by Alfred Hitchcock. The format goes like this: Two strangers meet, in this case, on a plane. One person expresses that they want someone in their life *gone*, and the other person expresses the same wish. Together they formulate the perfect crime; they swap murders so the crime cannot be linked to themselves. We first meet Kim, a high school student sitting in an airport waiting on her flight to London. She's traveling with a small group of students on a 2 week study-abroad, but she's not in good spirits because her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend are going, too. Noticing how lonely Kim is, Nicki, a stranger, sits beside Kim and they form a sudden kinship. Soon they're both getting tipsy on stolen vodka on the plane, and they both express how much they're hurting: Nicki claims her alcoholic mother is ruining her life, while Kim is angry with her ex, Connor. Nicki convinces Kim to write down all the reasons Connor "should die", and in her drunken stupor, Kim agrees. Then the conversation turns serious and Nicki asks Kim to kill her mother. Kim is stunned, but doesn't agree to it. When Kim wakes up from her vodka-induced sleep, the plane has landed in London and Nicki is gone. Thinking it was all just a silly conversation, Kim continues on her school trip -- until early on, Connor ends up dead and Kim finds a horrifying note linking Nicki to his death. Kim also pairs up with a cute boy named Alex, and an insta-love romance blooms. I actually don't mind insta-love tropes, but one thing that I wasn't really fond of was when things went into... "unreliable narrator territory." There are some twists that throw Kim under the unreliable narrator bus, and I just wasn't loving it. I was also getting frustrated by how poorly Kim was handling everything and how unrealistic Nicki was as a "villain." However, I also want to talk about WHY I think Kim reacted the way she did. Sure, it may have annoyed me, but it's also important to remember that she was in a foreign country, and we all know what happens when young American women start to fall under suspicion by law enforcement. (*Cough* Can we say Amanda Knox? Which, by the way, I feel is now a good time to boost With Malice, because Eileen Cook drew lots of inspiration from Knox's case for that book.) But I always enjoy a good whodunnit mystery, and I loved how their investigative adventures took them all over London. I will forever read anything Eileen writes because she has such a knack for writing amazing YA plots and characters. I am always a sucker for any books that take place in Europe. I think if you want something more adult, then I'd recommend picking up The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson. The strangers-meet-to-swap-murders set-up is similar but with more mature content. But I truly think You Owe Me a Murder is great for younger readers, and it has just the right amount of murder, adventure, and romance! Trigger warnings: Talks of suicide, alcoholism, cheating, stalking, death of child. Blog | Instagram | Twitter | YouTube

The plot is full of twists and the characters are enjoyable. The writing style is suspenseful and has edge-of-your-seat action that is present throughout the whole story. This is one incredible thriller for those looking to read a unique murder novel. ❀ ACTION-PACKED This book tells the story of a girl who is blackmailed into committing a murder after she and a stranger joke about swapping murders while on a plane. When her ex turns up dead, Kim is forced to either kill Nicki’s mom and uphold her end of the “bargain” or be “exposed” and arrested. This book is so action-packed, and the plot is surprising. Just when you think you know how it is going to go, sudden twists appear out of nowhere, and the story is intensified. This is the first book I’ve read by Eileen Cook, but after reading this I am interested in reading more. ❀ CLEVER MAIN CHARACTER Kim is a clever main character and she handles the situation well. She tries to think of ways to catch Nicki in the act, but Nicki is always one step ahead of her. It is hard to imagine being in a situation like Kim’s. Can you imagine being blackmailed to murder someone because of a joke? Kim has her flaws and I didn’t agree with every decision she makes. However, she goes through a lot, and is still ultimately an enjoyable character. Surprisingly, the side characters are even more interesting than the main character. It is so entertaining to read about the unpredictable and mysterious Nicki. I was on the edge of my seat every time she appeared. Alex is also such a sweetie, and he does his best to support Kim. ❀ THRILLING TWISTS The way the book is written intensifies the thrill. Twists are just thrown at the reader, and the plot can turn at any moment. The way Nicki is presented and the mystery that surrounds her is so amazing. The reader doesn’t know much about her, and there is no way of verifying what she says. Honestly, reading this book stressed me out since I was so invested in Kim’s fate. The suspense and action throughout the story really make this a thrilling read. You Owe Me a Murder is an action-packed thriller that is full of twists. The main character and the side characters are so enjoyable to read about, and the writing style amplifies the excitement. I would definitely recommend this one, especially to fans of books like Truly Devious.

    I had high expectations for this and it didn't really meet them. There was a kind of interesting twist at the end but I felt there was major pacing issues throughout the book. It wasn't a bad read persay and I did really like some aspect of the book but overall, it was just "meh".

    I love Strangers on a Train ... a lot. I tried a few chapters of this and I just wasn't feeling the set-up - a girl going on a study abroad trip - a trip that also includes her ex and his new girlfriend - meets another teenager and they decide to trade murders. Me: ???????? Maybe the believability level rises past the point I read but setting aside right now. Read more of my reviews on JenRyland.com! Check out my Bookstagram!

    This book featured some aggravating characters, that's for sure, and I think I spent most of the book pissed off at how stupid or psycho they were. lol The ship was also wayyyyy too insta-lovey, even for me. And I can usually let it slide. I hope the other book I own by this author is better, because this one was just plain disappointing. 2 stars.

    *2.5 "'What did you say?' 'You owe me a murder.'" How frickin disappointing. This was one of those books where I read the synopsis and thought "I must read this immediately." It was pretty fast if nothing else - I got through this whole book in a day. I'd really recommend reading this without reading the synopsis. This seems like a good book to read without knowing anything about it beforehand. Here's my synopsis - A drunken conversation on a plane turns into something far more deadlier come sunrise. *2.5 "'What did you say?' 'You owe me a murder.'" How frickin disappointing.

Here's my synopsis - A drunken conversation on a plane turns into something far more deadlier come sunrise. Can Kim escape with her life? I don't think there's a big problem if you have read the synopsis; it would just be cool to read it this way. I really liked the London setting of the book, that was fun and pretty transporting. I liked Kim's love interest, Alex, and I thought Kim herself was a perfectly fine protagonist - but the character descriptions! They're nonexistent! All we ever hear about Kim is that she has short(er) hair and that Nicki has a dark bob... it's so infuriating. The twist at the end was pretty good, but another thing happened at the end that made me dislike this book so much. I mean, it was surprising how (view spoiler)[Kim never told the police what happened. I mean, usually in a thriller like this the MC tells the police everything and gets to walk away with a clean conscience. Not the case here. (hide spoiler)] I didn't mind that. I think the ending would've been better if (view spoiler)[what Kim thought was true actually happened and Nicki was just a figment of her imagination since the plane. (hide spoiler)] But was I truly hated was (view spoiler)[how Nicki dies. She... falls? Sort of jumps? Geez. How anticlimactic. And stupid. (hide spoiler)] Oh, and TRIGGER WARNING FOR ANIMAL DEATH. I usually don't put trigger warnings in my reviews, but there's a scene where Kim runs over a bunny and it's half-dead and... ugh. Yeah. It's pretty graphic. 2.5/5 stars. So disappointing. Looks like I won't be picking up any more Eileen Cook books in the future. Oh well.

Thank you to the publisher for a copy of this book to read and review. .... Wow this book! I was hooked! Kim and her boyfriend have recently broken up. She is devastated and heartbroken, and now has to watch him with his newest girlfriend while they all go on a school trip together to England. Kim doesn’t want to see them together, but has no other choice while on the trip. While at the airport waiting for their flight, they find out their flight has been delayed. While waiting at the airport, Kim meets a young girl by the name of Nicki and they become instant friends. Nicki is witty, friendly, funny, adventurous and seems up for anything to have fun. Nicki tells Kim that she was visiting her father and is flying back home to England. I enjoyed the twists and turns in this book, and enjoyed reading about the friendship between Nicki and Kim, especially when the plot thickens and Nicki doesn’t appear to be who she says she is. Once we find out Kim’s ex-boyfriend dies while on their trip in England, things really start to heat up in the book. I found myself so engrossed in the book I was unable to put it down. I wanted to know who was responsible, and why he suddenly died. Kim begins receiving mysterious, threatening messages, but who is sending them to her and why? I found this book to be an addictive read that made me want to keep turning pages to see what would happen next. Especially when Kim is pressured to hold her end of the bargain and murder someone, or else she will have to pay for not going through with it…..After all, a deal is a deal, right?! A great read that I highly recommend! You will love this book!

Recommended to fans of young adult thrillers for sure.

After all the build-up tension, I was expecting something mind-blowing, something jaw drops but it was not in this case and that's very disappointing. It's pretty weird because it's too clean and nobody got any consequences. Kim just went home after the trip and was suddenly all grown up because she learned this huge lesson. Besides, other characters were totally flat. Kim's best friend, Emily was complete non-existence but her name was constantly brought into the picture. I do not understand what was the purpose of this if such character serves nothing at all in the plot. Same goes to the other students on the trip. I didn't like the fact that Miriam just exposed something shocking about Connor and then disappear from the plot. The one that really stands out was only Kim and Alex. But Kim was definitely a problematic character, she is pretty much a liar and a manipulator. The book kept feeding us the idea that she is a smart person. But seriously, I think she is dumb and constantly making the worse decision. I hated her a lot. Also, what's really unrealistic was all these students who were on the educational trip were allowed to walk around the city like they had been here for months. They totally know where they were going and not lost at all. I know you got GPS all these kind of stuff but on an educational trip? I don't think so. I'm pretty sure the organizer is pretty strict about the rules. The villain's motive was pretty weird too. How did Nicki even managed to stalk Kim without any additional pieces of information? The plot never did explain why does Nicki even want that money? Did she just randomly pick a victim for Kim to kill? Are you seriously telling me all this was just for her research? That still doesn't make sense. Overall, I do think this was a fun read and I don't regret my time reading it. I was just sad because it had so much potential but the characters and ending were lacking so much. Quotes that I really like: "Extraordinary people might be afraid, but they do it anyway." "You know, every accomplishment starts with the decision to try. And then keep trying, even when it's hard."

    The premise of this book is amazing, but it unfortunately never quite reached its full potential. Our main character, Kim, was extremely frustrating. She was kind of an idiot and made horrible decisions, and how she tried to deal with Nicki was just stupid. She also came across as slightly crazy when it was revealed she was lying about something pretty big, and I'm still not sure what actually happened with her and Connor.

The character of Nicki is so over-the-top that I actually found her entertaining. She's apparently this stealthy genius ninja psycho who knows everything Kim is doing and somehow manages to be everywhere that Kim is. Now that I think about it, she reminded me of "A" from Pretty Little Liars. Implausible, yes, but somehow really fun to read about. I called one of Nicki's secrets early on, but the other part of it really surprised me. However that ending was SUCH a let-down. I spent the entire book wondering how Kim was going to get out of this, and when it happened I thought, "Really? That's it?" The last few sentences were also weird and out of place. To sum it up, this was a cool premise with some extremely implausible moments and a lackluster ending. I debated between 2 and 3 stars for this one, but considering how weirdly readable this was, I'm going for 3.

    thanks to Raincoast for providing me with an ARC. I honestly considered dnf-ing this book 25 pages in but I felt like that wasn't fair to the story. Then at 100 pages, I wanted to dnf but it was the only book I had with me, so I read on. Then again 200 pages in but by then, I was too far in the story, so I thought I'd just finish it. I should've dnf-ed it at the start. The best thing about this story is that it's pretty fast-paced and something about it makes you want to see through to the end ( thanks to Raincoast for providing me with an ARC.

I flew through the pages and, if I actually liked the story, I would've finished it in half the time. I didn't like Kim at all. She's supposed to be super smart in terms of school but I wanted to hit her with a textbook because of how dumb she was through the whole thing. She was also a whiny, annoying, self-absorbed twat. There was no chemistry between Kim and Alex. I don't know why the author even bothered with a romance where there was no need. Kim admitted that she loved him and I could feel my eyeballs rolling away. Also, weirdly, I kept going into editing mode while reading this book. My thoughts were all "cut this out, this was mentioned for 2 paragraphs in the last chapter, there's no need to dedicate another half-page to it" or "this seems unnatural, why would you put this here." Maybe this'll be fixed in the final copy as I read the ARC but it really dampened the experience. The ending wasn't worth it. It was the easiest of easy ways out and like ?? nothing actually gets resolved. I don't want to spoil too much but the ending wasn't worth it. It was just like the rest of the book: mediocre at best. The way it was all resolved actually makes me slightly angry. Anyway, I'm regretting spending my time on this, so I'll just go and hopefully read a better book now.

    While this feels like it could be tightened up in the middle - there's a little too much of Kim fretting, which doesn't add to the suspense - the twists are good and the story largely fascinating. It was the perfect book to read while home sick.

I am grateful for the opportunity to review an ARC for my readers, but this will not influence my final rating. All opinions expressed in this review are my own and based solely on the book.  This book was meh for me. That’s the best and first word that comes to mind when I go to describe my experience. It’s such a horrible, horrible way to finish up a read, but also something that I know can be super subjective—so if you’re on the fence, here are my major thoughts to help you make a final decision. Kim and her boyfriend Connor just broke up, but her parents didn’t let her get out of the Student Scholars for Change trip to London that she absolutely begged to go on, so now she’s stuck in a foreign country with a boy who wants nothing to do with her. I’ve never been to London, much like Kim, and would have liked more description of the sites the visiting students looked at. Sometimes London references were A) lost on me or B) awkwardly tossed in. Kim spends more time in a Thai restaurant than she does exploring any local sites. I guess I’ll just keep saving up for my own trip to the UK! Cook’s writing style leans heavily on tell over show. A huuuge part of my “meh”-ing in this book came from how little emotion I got off protagonist Kim. As we know, her ex ends up dead. But the writing following Kim’s discovery left me hugely disconnected: I felt like a puppet that had its strings cut. I collapsed to the floor. Alex dropped down next to me. There was a strange smell in the air, like hot metal. Coppery, like burning pennies. I struggled to get up. You Owe Me a Murder, p. 78 (Quote from an advance uncorrected proof.) The combination of short sentences (better, in my opinion, for academic writing than fiction) and lack of emotionalism (Kim is collapsing, she is smelling, but what is she thinking?) just did me in. This style holds up throughout the book, which made it hard for me to care about pretty much everything happening. As a character, Kim is said to be very analytical and smart, so this could be a reflection of her personality. It just didn’t work for me. At the airport on her way to London, Kim meets and rapidly befriends Nickie. I liked Nickie’s character the most, if only because she was the most fleshed-out and interesting character. During the Students for Change trip, Kim also grows close to fellow student Alex and … that was literally the weirdest relationship I’ve ever read. I’m sorry. She lied to him various times, he called her out, (she apologized in a non-apology way), she lied to him in various ways again and went full shade, he got upset, and then with no actual make-up moment they are together. I DON’T care if you think this is a spoiler because how is this EVEN a developed relationship of any kind. (Okay, if you think this is a spoiler I’m a little sorry but that whole dynamic confused the hell out of me.) I do have two issues that I will drop into a magical spoiler box so read at your own discretion because they do ruin some plot points. (view spoiler)[ (1) TREATMENT OF SUICIDE / MENTAL ILLNESS Kim’s ex’s death is framed as an accident/suicide. By the end of the book, there is no conclusive evidence for either theory. Immediately after his (Conner’s) death, there is talk of ending the trip. One student is like, “I feel bad the guy decided to kill himself, but it has nothing to do with me.” (YOMAM, p. 87.) On page 86, the same character said, “I guess the police will ship …” —his Adam’s apple bobbed in his throat — “the body back.” As a reader, I personally ended up with the impression that Connor’s apparent suicide was a minor inconvenience to his trip-mates, which was not a portrayal I appreciated. Not enough of the book is spent discussing the fact that someone *actually* died, especially considering so many people honestly think it was by suicide. (hide spoiler)] (view spoiler)[ (2) STALKING Kim lies about dating Connor. The truth later comes out that she and Connor had a sexual relationship, wherein she was emotionally invested but he only wanted sex. When Connor ended the relationship, she began to stalk him. My issue with this (besides the very fact that stalking is not okay) is that Kim isn’t really called out on her stalking. She admits the truth of the relationship to new “boyfriend” Alex (YES, the stalking too) and Alex basically says, “Wow, Connor is a jerk.” OKAY, but then she stalked him. STALKING isn’t okay. (hide spoiler)] If you did read the spoiler section, yes, it’s a lot. And you might be thinking, SHA, HOW ARe you just meh with this happening? But with the writing style and the lack of character development/emotionalism it was just kind of hard to care? I kind of just worked towards the end to see what happened and then I was like, oh. k.

And when I first read the awesome plot description for You Owe Me a Murder, I just knew I had to read it right away too. Secrets. Lies. Blackmail. Murder. I was definitely immediately hooked! When Kim is stuck on a summer program to London with her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend, she's not exactly in her happy place. She thought she'd be holding hands with Connor as they took in all the historical sights, but now she has to watch him with his hands all over another girl instead. While waiting for their flight to depart from Vancouver, things start looking up for Kim when she meets Nicki, a fellow traveler on her flight. Nicki is British and returning home. She's posh and bold, and a willing listener as Kim tells her all about Connor and the awkward situation she's in. So when Nicki jokes that they can solve all their problems with murder—she'll kill Connor and Kim can kill Nicki's alcoholic mother—that's all Kim thinks it is. A joke. But Kim's not laughing when a few days later, Connor mysteriously dies and Nicki comes calling. After all, Kim now owes her a murder... I probably made some interesting expressions while I was reading You Owe Me a Murder. I definitely cringed and shook my head in dismay when Kim told unnecessary lies. Well, not really lies. She was just really good at withholding certain details and telling the bare minimum. But with an ongoing police investigation, I kept wondering if/when the police would look more closely into her statements and it stressed me out a little every time they interacted. As for Nicki, well, she is one scary, unpredictable girl! Nicki seemed to know exactly what buttons to push to pressure Kim and make her feel cornered. She came and went like a ghost, appearing before Kim to remind her that time was running out before she had to return home to Canada. Ominous music started playing in my head whenever Nicki was around because you knew things would take a turn or Kim would have to adjust her plans to counter her all over again. With several thrillers under her belt now, Eileen Cook is getting really good at layering the tension, distorting the truth, and throwing out misdirections to keep you on the edge of your seat. While I did guess a couple of the twists correctly this time around, I had no idea how the ending would ultimately play out, so I still eagerly turned the pages to discover what would happen next. If you're looking for your next compelling and devious YA thriller to read, I highly recommend checking out You Owe Me a Murder. ** I received an ARC from Raincoast Books in exchange for an honest review. **

Kim lies. We know this because she tells us. She seems sympathetic, but appearances can be deceiving and narrators can be unreliable. I couldn’t get a grasp on the real Kim and I’m certain Cook crafted the protagonist to be just that evasive. While a little slow to start YOU OWE ME A MURDER is quintessential Cook, which is a very, very good thing. Clue or red herring? I never knew. I loved reading YOU OWE ME A MURDER. Although I’m a big rereader, including Cook’s other books, I’m not sure this one is the type I’ll read twice.

    OMG THIS BOOK!!!!! Eileen Cook has done it again with her newest psychological thriller. For fans of twisty, fast paced books with complicated characters, You Owe Me a Murder, is right up your alley. A modern take on Strangers on a Train for our time. It's so clever ans constantly kept me guessing. I really related to Kim, but Nikki was so much fun! I'd love to see a sequel to this. 5 STARS!!

    This book was dynamic enough for me to finish reading it in one day. I normally enjoy characters that are flawed in a lot of ways and that is definitely our main character Kim. There are a few questions I still have when it comes to this book but overall I really the entire wild ride.

    Have you ever wondered about how the lives of those who are blogged about in very popular blogs may be affected by said blogger? Sadly, I never gave it much thought until meeting Kim. She is the daughter of one of the original Mommy Bloggers. This means her mother is basically a famous Mommy Blogger, making good money for her efforts. This also means that although never referred to by name, Kim's life is blogged about for the world to see. This created an interesting view point. Kim in essence i Have you ever wondered about how the lives of those who are blogged about in very popular blogs may be affected by said blogger? Sadly, I never gave it much thought until meeting Kim. She is the daughter of one of the original Mommy Bloggers. This means her mother is basically a famous Mommy Blogger, making good money for her efforts. This also means that although never referred to by name, Kim's life is blogged about for the world to see. This created an interesting view point. Kim in essence is a victim of her mothers blogging. I found this an interesting & very with the times for today's young adults when essentially everything is plastered all over the internet for everyone & anyone to peruse. It most certainly can give one pause in considering that perhaps we shouldn't be so open in discussing/photographing every aspect of our lives. Kim convinces her parents to let her go on a two week educational trip to London with other school mates. The trip is a learning experience by being lightly chaperoned & shown around London. It sounds like an absolutely delightful way to learn a little current & cultural history by doing. Unfortunately Kim's motives aren't pure. She wants to go because her boyfriend is going. Be careful what you wish for. Before the trip, her boyfriend dumps her & immediately starts dating another girl. Kim no longer wants to be on this trip, essentially trapped with her ex, watching him cuddle & coo with his new lass. As the back of the book states, Kim meets a total stranger at the airport, named Nicki. Kim is instantly smitten with Nicki & as a result finds herself doing risky things she normally wouldn't do. Once in London, Kim starts healing from the breakup & is happily moving on. However it seems that her ex is still having some issues. Next thing Kim knows, he's dead. It creates a lot of stress & emotional trauma on many of the kids, but they manage to move on as best as they can. But not Kim. Nicki wants her murder & is determined to make Kim do it. It seems that Kim is in over her head with Nicki. She makes decisions that made me groan as the reader. At the same time, Kim shows her intelligence with making choices I would have never expected. The ending was an interesting surprise - one that I most certainly am not disappointed in. Overall, this is a very good & mildly suspenseful YA read.

A quick read for teens that features a Canadian high schooler plunged unwillingly into a murder pact with an English girl she meets on the plane to London. The book is obviously an homage to Patricia Highsmith's 1950 novel Strangers On A Train, which was made into a memorably creepy Hitchcock film. Kim, the Canadian teenager and bitter ex-girlfriend of a boy who is also along for their student trip abroad, is both dryly intelligent about her life, and increasingly bewildered and hysterical after his death, which only she suspects was at the hands of Nikki, the acquaintance, and psychology specialist who appears to be manipulating Kim's very existence. Cook's dispassionate writing style suits these tropes well, and the bonding of women over booze and relationship woes that can curdle into toxicity is convincingly portrayed in the opening scenes. There are several plotholes that gape ever wider as the story progresses and threaten the whole, chiefly the lack of engagement with the London setting, and the heroine's ability to navigate around a country she's never visited before. The lack of interest in her movements shown by all adults concerned stretched this reader's credulity, particularly after the possible murderous death of a fellow student. Kim is obviously developed as unreliable female narrator but at times she just seems hysterical, which though an appropriate response to her circumstances, doesn't support the idea she may be able to turn the tables on Nikki. The book has real appeal for teens who enjoy dark psychological thrillers and who not afraid to experience adolescent characters at their worst. This sort of thing works best if the ride runs smoothly and You Owe Me a Murder has a few hitches, but it will be an easy one to make for Reader's Advisory, though I would throw in a recommendation to read Highsmith and to watch some Hitchcock as well.

    So obviously this is basically a YA version of Strangers on a Train. I loved the concept, and it's executed perfectly here. Kim is in a strange place where she doesn't know anyone except for her ex (who is THE WORST) and his new girlfriend, and where she doesn't have any sort of a support system to help her. To make matters worse, she also doesn't have any way to contact Nicki. She doesn't even know her last name, where she lives or where she could be.  Also, because Kim didn't mention that she kn So obviously this is basically a YA version of Strangers on a Train.

It's suspicious that she didn't tell anyone before (they were content to pretend not to know each other; again, he is the worst) and then it makes her the most likely suspect when he ends up dead.  I loved this story and kept getting caught completely off guard. Eileen Cook is excellent at that. Highly recommended.

    A fabulous retelling of Strangers on a Train. Now the big difference between Strangers on a Train and You Owe Me a Murder is the countdown. Nikki only has so long to get Kim to do her bidding or to get her framed for Connor's murder if she refuses. Kim and the other students are only there for a set number of days, something each chapter reminds us with a countdown. http://pussreboots.com/blog/2019/comm...

But when Connor winds up dead on the tracks of the London Tube mere days later, Kim finds herself in a game that could end up with her becoming a murderer. My feelings for this book are all over the place. The premise is outrageous, but the novel's pacing somehow made me incapable of tearing my eyes away. It was a little like watching bad reality TV in that sense. The potential irreliability of Kim as a narrator lends extra intrigue, but she was also just such a terrible character. It also wraps up far too neatly.

    The book "You Owe Me a Murder" by Eileen Cook is a fascinating book that kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time. The book is about 17 year old Kim, a high school student who signed up to go on a school field trip to London. Unfortunately for Kim, her ex boyfriend and new girlfriend are both on the same trip, making it very uncomfortable and aggravating for Kim. Things seem to be heading in the right direction right after Kim is introduced to Nicki. After having some friendly conversations The book "You Owe Me a Murder" by Eileen Cook is a fascinating book that kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time. The book is about 17 year old Kim, a high school student who signed up to go on a school field trip to London. Unfortunately for Kim, her ex boyfriend and new girlfriend are both on the same trip, making it very uncomfortable and aggravating for Kim. Things seem to be heading in the right direction right after Kim is introduced to Nicki. After having some friendly conversations while getting tipsy off stolen vodka, Nicki began telling Kim about her alcoholic mom who is ruining her life and Kim began telling Nicki about why she is angry with her ex boyfriend. Both characters seemed to form an almost instant friendship, making Kim's trip much better until her ex-boyfriend is somehow killed and Kim is blackmailed into murder. This book is full of twists and suspense, constantly making me wonder what might happen next. During Kim's drunken conversation with Nicki, Nicki convinced Kim to talk about why her ex boyfriend, Connor should be killed and Nicki did the same about her alcoholic mother. Kim think everything is just a joke and falls asleep. Once Kim woke up, Nicki was gone so she continued on with her trip. Later on in the day, Connor ends up dead and Kim began receiving gut wrenching, threatening messages from Nicki. Nicki states that she wants Kim to kill her alcoholic mother otherwise Kim would be exposed and blamed for Connor's death. Considering that Kim is only in London for two weeks, I was constantly curious on how she would pull off such an insane crime. Not only this, but whenever Nicki was in Kim's presence, this kept me at the edge of my seat. Throughout the book, Nicki came and went like a ghost, constantly reminding Kim about the murder. Nicki always knew what to do in order to pressure Kim and make her feel the need of help and this kept me intrigued. Another thing is that Nicki somehow always knew what Kim was doing and she would manage to be everywhere she was. I wanted to know what Kim would do to get out of this mess and how she would do it and I even wondered what I would do in her situation. Another reason I found this book so suspenseful, keeping me at the edge of my chair was because of the plot twists. Twists are thrown at the reader all around and the plot can turn at any moment considering that you never knew when Nicki would just appear from thin air. Overall, I enjoyed this book and found it great for anyone who is looking for a thriller. The book is filled with plot twists and changes which constantly kept me curious and at the edge of my seat. I was always wondering what might happen next and if Nicki could just show up at any moment. I definitely recommend this book for others, especially those who love thrillers.
