With Malice by Eileen Cook
Wish you weren't here…
When Jill wakes up in a hospital bed with her leg in a cast, the last six weeks of her life are a complete blank. All she has been told is that she was involved in a fatal accident while on a school trip in Italy and had to be jetted home to receive intensive care. Care that involves a lawyer. And a press team. Because maybe the accident…. wasn't just an accident.
With no memory of what happened or what she did, can Jill prove her innocence? And can she really be sure that she isn't the one to blame?
This book was readable. I happily read it in a matter of hours but there was something about it that was lacking. The story was intriguing enough but I couldn't put my finger on what was wrong with it until Sophie from So Many Books So Little Time pointed out that it's basically a rehash of Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas but not as good. She's right. So much of it echos of that book but not done as well. Therefore I'd have to say if you were half interested in reading this try Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas instead which is much better.
