Bet Your Life

Finished Bet Your Life by Jane Casey.  I received a copy from the publisher.

Summary (from Goodreads):

Jess Tennant has now been living in a tiny town on the English seaside for three months, and is just beginning to relax and think of it as home after the traumatic events of last summer. But in the small hours of Halloween night, a teenage boy is left for dead by the side of the road. Seb Dawson has a serious head injury and may not survive. Jess might not have liked Seb much, but surely he didn’t deserve this. The police don’t seem to be taking the attack very seriously, but Jess can’t just let it go, and she takes matters into her own hands.

As she investigates, Jess discovers that Seb was involved in some very dangerous games. A secret predator around girls, he would do whatever it took to abuse them, from lying and blackmail to spiking drinks. Could a group of vengeful victims be behind his attack? Or is there someone else with a grudge against Seb, who will stop at nothing to silence him? Jane Casey returns with another edge-of-your-seat mystery in Bet Your Life.”

Like its predecessor (How to Fall), this book is incredibly fun.

Jess has been dragged into another mystery (this one a little more plausible) and while she remembers what happened to her last time (I guess nearly dying will do that), she also can’t resist helping.  (Seb’s little sister wants to know what happened to him and doesn’t buy the police investigation’s result.)

I’m not entirely sure that there can be a third one, but I’ve enjoyed these two books a great deal.

I also want to check out Jane Casey’s adult series.  I like her writing style a great deal.
