Review + Giveaway: ALIBI from Twist Literary

Spring Valley’s golden girl is found floating face-down in her boyfriend’s pool, hands bound behind her back, head bleeding, drugs and alcohol in her system. Her friends are the only suspects – and they all have reasons to want her dead. Everyone has an alibi, but no one is innocent.

ALIBI is a 4-part young adult e-book series. Each one-hundred page installment reveals the perspective of a different character: the secret love, the nemesis, the boyfriend, the best friend. As their tales unfold, we learn that Abby is not as perfect as everyone believes, but she’s not the only one with secrets to hide. This page-turning tale of suspense, betrayal, murder, and lust will keep fans of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars up and reading well past curfew.

Note: This series contains content for mature YA readers.

The general concept behind Alibi is fascinating to me. Four authors all write a 100 page-volume about one event from a different POV. I included the little “explanation” of it so you can get a bit more of a taste of what it’s about. I was excited about that concept automatically, but the synopsis made it an experience I knew I couldn’t miss.

In each volume that character is telling their side of events and recalling events, often the same events filling in with details that the others may not have noticed along with that character’s thoughts of the situation. It’s your basic “whodunit” book, with a “twist”. Like teased in the synopsis, it’s similar to Pretty Little Liars (suspense/twists and turns) and Gossip Girl (sexy/saucy). This combo makes for such a fun ride.

I had started Volume 1 with the intention of reading it before bed and then starting volume 2 the next day. By the conclusion of volume 2, I was pretty sure who had killed Abigail (and was right). Even with my suspicions, Alibi kept me guessing about situations until it was tied up at the end.

Lovers of suspenseful books aren’t going to want miss Alibi.

I received ALIBI Volumes I-IV: The Complete Series from the publisher in exchange of my honest opinion.

      I should probably note I’m one of those who usually figures out who the “bad guy” is within the first few minutes. Movies, tv, books…LOL!
