Too soon for candy canes? Yes, I’m that person. 😂
I thought the premise of Guess Who really interesting and I was excited to get an advance reader’s copy of the book. I found the pace a little slow, and the main character a little boring and hard to root for.
Halfway through my interested was piqued but I found that there were too many new elements added to make this simple premise work for me.
This book took me 3.5 hours to read. Thank you to Netgalley and Hanover Square Press for an advance copy of this title in exchange for my honest review.
At eleven, Morgan Sheppard solved the murder of a teacher and earned a reputation as a detective. Now he’s parlayed that fame into being the “resident detective” on a tacky daytime show where he uses his “skills” to solve inane non-mysteries. He’s satisfied as long as he’s famous.
Until the day he wakes up handcuffed to a bed in an unfamiliar hotel room.
Surrounded by five strangers, and with a corpse resting in the bathtub, Sheppard has three hours to solve the murder. If he fails, everyone in the room will die.
