Oh man I really liked this. Veronica Mars-esque noir-y stuff is completely my jam. I didn't really buy the actual story behind the way things went down, but apparently my tear ducts did not care because I totally lost it at the end. I've heard such strong recommendations for Smith's ORLEANS and FLYGIRL and this was such a good push to finally read them.

I downloaded this on a whim because I loved the cover and the synopsis and I'm always intrigued to see how authors portray SoCal...this was not what I was expecting. What I loved: •The back and forth way the story was told. It was an effective way to "meet" Maggie and gave an interesting peek into their friendship. •The noir feel of everything •The explanation {even if it felt a bit like a cop out} What I disliked: •Pretty much everything else. Sadly, I couldn't get behind Jude as a MC. I wanted to feel the heartbreak with her, but she's just so rude and horribly mean to her friends that I couldn't. I struggled to root for her in any way. Overall, this book had so much potential for me to love it, but ultimately it wasn't for me. **Huge thanks to GP Putnam's Sons and Edelweiss for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review**
