Review: How to Fall

How to Fall
How to Fall by Jane Casey

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Jess is being taken out of London to spend a summer in a small English town where her mother is from. The town people can’t help but look at her sideways since she is the spitting image of her cousin who died before Jess appeared. Jess wonders about Freya’s death even though it was ruled death by misadventure. She can’t shake that it might have been murder, although suicide is also a possibility. Jess takes it upon herself to look into the matter and learns many secrets about this tiny English town.

How to Fall is the first book in a new mystery series. The protagonist is easy to love and the mystery is presented smoothly without being too formulaic. Jess has several suspects she systematically investigates and either pursues or removes from her list. Casey as cleanly wrapped up this mystery, yet she has created a world and cast of characters that will allow her to create additional novels and dilemmas. How to Fall is an enjoyable mystery for both male and female readers alike.
