Most Likely To Die contains three connected stories by three different authors. Part One: Kristen, by Lisa Jackson, was my least favorite of the three, and I would only rate it three stars. To be fair, it may have been my least favorite because of the way it had use so much space to introduce most of the characters and set up the story. I did find Kristen and Ross Delmonico, the main characters in this part of the story, to be likeable, but I felt that their story together wasn't given enough de ...more

Dikarang oleh 3 pengarang thriller-romance yang berbeda membuat buku ini menarik untuk dibaca. Menceritakan kehidupan 3 orang wanita, masing2 dikisahkan oleh pengarang yang berbeda dan di bagian terakhir diceritakan pertemuan dalam acara reuni dan pengungkapan siapa pembunuh yang sebenarnya.

Sebenarnya menebak pembunuh yang dicari2 tidak sukar, sekitar separuh buku sudah dapat ditebak tetapi kisah mengenai romance dari ketiga wanita tersebut membuat buku ini tetap sangat menarik untuk dibaca.

Plot was given away about 1/2 way through the book with little surprises left once you figure out who is wrecking the havoc on the high school classmates. Too many predictable reunions. Only redeeming entertainment value was that book was written in 3 sections by 3 different authors, so there's some fun to be had in trying to find inconsistencies and differences in style throughout.

This book did not keep my interest, i dont know if it was the combined writing styles or maybe I was not in the mood for a murder mistery?, I will probally try reading this again.

Interesting concept: three authors, one novel, which worked pretty well with these women, whose writing styles are similar enough to provide some continuity. There were a couple of twists along the way that made for interesting subplots and, of course, the big reveal at the climax of the story for those who hadn't already figured everything out. My only complaint is that there was a late development that did not seem to fit and felt more like something thrown in to tie up a few loose ends. Other ...more

This Book has three parts written by three different authors: Lisa Jackson, Beverly Barton, and Wendi Corsi Staub. I like the part written by Beverly Barton the most and the part by Wendi Corsi Staub the least.
The beginning of the story reminds me of Fear Street series by R.L. Stine because the setting was in high school.
It's not hard to guess who the murderer was. When reading the second part I already knew who did it but I still enjoyed reading it.
Overall I think this is a good book but not as

"A KILLER WHO GETS AWAY WITH MURDER ONCE...

I have read books by Lisa Jackson and Wendy Corsi Staub but none by Beverly Barton and after this book written by this trio, I doubt if I would ever read anything by Beverly Barton.

This books is about a group of women in 2006 who are having a 20 year reunion- their first ever- of their graduation from a girls' Catholic school in 1986. They had not kept in touch over the years and the reason why is that so many of them were infatuated with bad boy and supercreep Jake Marcott who was murdered at t

I'll admit from the start, I'm not a huge murder mystery fan. On the whole, this wasn't a bad book. Well built suspense kept me reading. I had some difficulty with becoming attached to most of the characters. In part, because I had trouble grasping how one shady young man, however handsome, could have ended up idealized in the minds of that many teenage girls...to the point of contributing to failing areas of their lives even two decades after being devastated by his death.

I found this book in the airport and picked it up because I'd forgotten a book of my own to read. It immediately became apparent why the previous reader had left it on the bench. Wow, was it bad! From the improbable setting of a convent in Portland, Oregon, to the blatant, almost racist, tokenism of the characters (including a fat Mexican girl who loves jalapenos on her pizza), this book was an example of everything a good writer should not do. I laughed out loud when the killer -- yes, that's h ...more

3.5 stars. The premise having 3 authors write 3 parts of the same book was interesting and it almost worked. If there were more twists in the plot, I would give Lindsay, by Wendy Corsi Staub and Beverly Barton's Rachel part 4's, but only a 3 for Lisa Jackson's Kristen.

Likes:
* Romance stories intermingled with murder mystery
* Interesting three main characters: Kristen Delmonico, Lindsay Farrell - NYC event planner, and Rachel Alsace - police officer
* Police officer point of view of investigation

the way Lisa Jackson tells story of three main characters in this novel is quite entertaining. it's like we're taken to travel to three places where each of it containing one woman who have suffered from horrible high school moment. unfortunately, i couldn't find this book thrilling. the story about each main character's romance life is taking this novel way too far out of the theme. predictability in this novel is caused by the usual 'the most unlikely murderer is the murderer' type.

I wasn't sure what to expect given that three popular authors were a part of the book. However, the book was split into thirds, with each author handling one-third of the storytelling primarily from the POV of one character. The three main characters were Kristen, Lindsay, and Rachel.



The reunion actually doesn't happen until near the end of the third part. There are bits from the killer's POV throughout the novel and several very good suspects. I wasn't entirely sure who was the killer until the

Now this was a good one. Three different authors, but you almost can't tell a difference. All three stories are connected together, a strong connection, not like a series. All three authors nailed it with their writing, the sexual tension, the fear, the hope, the suspense, the action... A story well told, glueing you to the page. I really had a hard time putting this one down! If you like Lisa Jackson, you've got to read this. It's not just her, but it doesn't matter - all three parts of the sam ...more

I liked the mystery aspect the most. Trying to figure out who the killer was and being stumped when my suspect was killed off. It had a great pace that really made the book a non-stop read.

A classic murder mystery told in multiple character perspectives with a few flashbacks into the past, this novel is a spellbinding tour through the drama and back-stabbing of teenaged girls, the tragic early murder of a teenaged boy, and the incidents that all culminate with a 20 year high school reunion. When a teenaged boy is killed in 1986 at a Valentine's dance and the killer escapes detection, twenty years later the murders of several women will draw attention back to the original death.

This book was difficult to get into.. I thought at the end when they revealed who the killer was... that they could have come up with a better way of telling who the killer was...
William Malmborg
I didn’t mind that I figured out who the killer was fairly quickly into this book. What I didn’t care for was all the repetitive inner dialogue about how the killer was going to make the women pay. It just seemed excessive and over the top. I also thought it odd that the three main women characters would so easily fall into the arms of the three men, the first being with her husband who she was on the verge of divorcing, the other two being men they hadn’t seen since high school. I don’t doubt t ...more

Lisa Jackson keeps you guessing as to who the killer is up to the very end. Just when you think you have it figured out there is a new twist.
Jennifer Gelert
I loved the fact that writer got a chance to write on each of the 3 main characters. A murder at a high school Valentine's Dance with a crossbow. Jake's killer was not found and a whole senior class was in shock. 20 years later they are planning a 20 yr class reunion and it seems the killer has returned. I was so excited because about 40 pages near the end I finally pegged the killer. I had a few pages of doubt but in the end I was right. That shows you how good these writers are.

Mungkin..mungkin karena buku ini ditulis 3 orang yang berbeda.
Part 1-2-3 gak terlalu nyambung. Kayaknya pada awal cerita penulis belum punya ide siapa yang mau dijadikan penjahat. Terus waktu pertengahan, ide itu muncul. And...dari yang awalnya misterius jadi yang ketebak banget siapa si jahat itu.
Untuk jenis cerita misteri/detektif/romans, buku ini setengah-setengah. Masih jauh dari Sidney Sheldon yang walo banyak sinis sama manusia, tetep harus diakui jago bikin cerita yang gak ketebak pembaca

A suspense book written by three different authors. I liked the book and thought the story flowed nicely between the three separate chapters. Kept my interest.
Kristina
I wish one person that had died didn't but of well. I figured the killer out pretty early because the flaunted it too much but I kept on reading just to see if any one else was going to get off. But what really bothers me is that one of them injured the killer in way that could figure out easily but know of them had enough brains to look for it instead they were trying figure it out by shoe sizes and back ground checks. blah! The more i think about the more get annoyed by the book even though it ...more

Perhaps one of the most entrancing, suspensful, romantic books i've ever read, hooking a spot as the best book in my history of reading. Although towards the middle, it seems a little slow, a quote to remember would be "The calm before the storm". I put off finishing this book, at first, for months, when I finished I decided that had been a mistake and wished I'd finished sooner, so I could start reading it yet again.

It's been twenty years since the night Jake Marcott was brutally murdered at St. Elizabeth High School and now a 20-year reunion has been scheduled. For some alumni, very special invitations have been sent: their smiling senior pictures slashed by an angry red line. They have been marked for death.

This book is really a teenage romance novel disguised as a murder mystery. It's very predictable and not very believeable.
