    Chloe moved to California a year before college to live with her childhood friend and mother’s best-friend so she can get residency before she starts her dream and transfers into film school. Everyone knows the best film schools are in California so Chloe is on cloud 9 when she lands from her long plane ride into LAX. That is until she realizes the jetlag from her flight might have fast-forwarded her into a horror film before she even got to 12th grade.Chloe is the new girl around the city and doesn’t know anybody when she went to a school party by the beach with Jake and his girlfriend, Kate. When she found Lora dead on the beach she only knew it was Lora because of her blue scarf and a minor introduction from Jake a couple of minutes beforehand. Unfortunately, her lack of knowledge left the cops confused and hopeless but there was someone else that was paying really close attention to Chloe and wouldn’t let her off the hook so easily. Needless to say she didn’t make the best first impression in school and pretty much California since the dramatic death was plastered all over the news the next day.Chloe had a sense that she was being watched after she found Lora and she also had inkling that the murderer could very well be some of the people she just recently met. Instinctively she knew Jake couldn’t do it even is she hadn’t seen him or talked to him since the 6th grade. He was still the sweetheart she remembered him to be but that doesn’t mean that she isn’t in danger. After another girl is found murdered and slugged in the school locker nobody seems to have an alibi. Therefore everybody is a suspect and Chloe knows that the murderer is defiantly after her next due to the elaborate messages being left for her that cannot be classified as just a high school prank.Could it be Jake because she really doesn’t know him anymore, she doesn’t know what he’s capable of? Was it Grey the guy who seems a bit too nice to be as sneaky as he is? Was it Emma the outcast in the school? Was it Kate because she is a jealous and a bit two faced? How is it that Chloe landed in California and on her first steps on the beloved beach tripped over the most popular girl in school blank eyed and cold fleshed? Was she somehow connected to these people that she learned the names of after she stared into those dead eyes?This story is allover the place in the best way ever. I didn’t know who did it the entire time and even when the blurry story was starting to clear up there were still a few questions that left me feeling haunted. If you are ready to stretch your mind this thriller is definitely worth the ride.Rating: 8.5/10Source: NetGalley

Her childhood friend is all but a stranger to her now and the only possible new friends in school are the unusual rich boy Gray always with a camera nearby and Emma the other school outcast.

Milda Harris has developed a story that will appeal to mystery lovers from the younger 13 year old to the older reader of any age who like a clean mystery with a little young love thrown in. The characters are eclectic. Chloe is believable in her actions and thoughts. The plot could be tightened in a spot or two, but on the whole moves at a steady to fast pace. There are a few typos that needed to be fixed, but that was not a problem to my reading of "The New Girl Who Found A Dead Body". My rating is a 4 out of 5 stars. I hope others will enjoy reading this story as much as I did.Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...Barnes and Noble link: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-n...GoodReads link: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...The Reading Room link: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.ph...

    Read this review, and others like it, at my blog Bookmarks and Coffee Mugs.First off, I am so sorry that I haven't written anything in almost a week. I recently started a new job, and I've been so busy with that that I haven't even had time to read (cue sad violin music, preferably from Lord of the Rings). I have a lot of really cool books that I intend on reading and reviewing (thank you, Netgalley!), but that requires time that I don't have right now. However, I did get to read "The New Girl Who Found a Dead Body" by Milda Harris. With a title that's the book equivalent of click bait, and a quirky cover, I impulsively requested it, expecting some sort of Veronica Mars-type of storyline (by the way, I love Veronica Mars so much. I could write a whole blog post on it, if this were a tv show blog. In fact, while writing this post I had to go listen to the theme song just to humor myself). That was not what I got, however. You know how, when little kids write stories, they don't really plan out what they're going to write, nor do they worry about character development? This book was like that: a shallow, unbelievable, ridiculously stereotyped book.In fact, when the murderer tries to threaten the main character, he cuts up her teddy bear. Her teddy bear. They're seniors in High School, people. Anyway, I just skipped to the end to find out who did it, and I had guessed right.I didn't mean to write two negative reviews in a row, so I will try to review a book I liked next.

    I received a free kindle copy of The New Girl Who Found a Dead Boy by Milda Harris published by Milda Harris from NetGalley for fair review. I gave it four stars.I liked it because this murder mystery kept me guessing from start to finish. It's about an 18 year old who moves to California to stay with the family she had been friends with when she & Jake were children. Chloe discovers the recently killed body of Lora, the most popular & manipulative girl in school. She is befriended by Emma, a girl on the outskirts of the 'In Crowd'. Her affections swing between Grey, a class photographer & Kate, Jake's insanely jealous girlfriend. She is suspicious of almost anyone because she doesn't know anyone. She starts receiving warning notes & threats.Who can Chloe trust? Can she find out who is threatening her before she is killed?Link to purchase: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005...

    I really enjoyed this book! It was very suspenseful and kept me engaged the entire time, despite having guessed (correctly! heh) from the get-go who the murderer was. At times the grammar was a bit iffy and the paragraphs needed a bit of work (definitely needs another once over by an editor), but besides that it was easy to follow along and read in only a couple of days. I didn't really know what to expect from this book, but I am so glad I picked it up, as I definitely want to read more work by Milda Harris. If you like the crime/thriller/mystery genre combined with books about teenagers going through the drama of high school, I totally recommend you check this one out!

    I love a good mystery and although this was a very easy and fun read, I felt that it was missing something. Two murders of students at the local high school and Chloe receives threats indicating that she will be the third. Despite knowing that someone close to Chloe was the killer, the story didn't creep me out as much as it should have. A bit more drama and scary scenes would have been welcome. I liked Grey but wasn't too fond of Jake because he was too jock-like! He acted like he was oh so lovely, the perfect best friend and all, but really he had no idea his girlfriend was semi-psycho!

    I liked this book from the get-go, the thrill definitely builds up but I feel like most of the plot was quite simple. Another thing that I didn't really like was the fact that Chloe thought it was a prank for so long, even when it was quite obvious that no one in their right mind would play a prank so dark and twisted when someone has just been killed. That felt kind of unreal of her, to actually think that could be an option and not a menace from the possible killer.Anyway, all in all it was an entertaining read, although I did miss a bit of a deeper plot.

    This was a cute, light read by an author who I've read another book by (Adventures in Funeral Crashing). This one was a little less original, more school based with the whole popularity thing. In the end I only really liked the main character and Grey, the others turned kind of sour when all was revealed. It read more like a Gothic than a Mystery though.

    I completely loved this story! I wouldn't change a single thing about it. The characters were great and the balance between romance and mystery was perfect. The romance didn't over power at all which i really loved. If you are looking for a good murder mystery this is definitely the choice for you, and dont worry you wont figure out who the killer is until its revealed, which i loved. Fantastic job Milda!

    I enjoyed this book a lot. The characters seemed realistic and fun to be with. The only thing that bugged me a little was the constant repeating of the word “though”. It was a little distracting (but that’s just me). All in all, the story line was very interesting and the book was well written. I will purchase other books by Milda Harris; really looking forward to reading “Connected”.

    Harris seems to be onto a winning formulae in the murder mystery genre. Delivering another chilling mystery for us to devour in one frantic session. I'd certainly hate to be one of Harris's imaginary characters, as they seem to have a habit of dying in gruesome ways.
