Eileen Cook’s ‘With Malice’ Will Keep You Guessing ‘Til the End
With Malice by Eileen Cook
Review by Sandra Wilson
Eileen Cook’s With Malice hooks you from the very first page, and strings you along until the last. When eighteen-year-old Jill Charron wakes up in a hospital bed, she has no idea how she got there. She remembers nothing from the past six weeks—not the trip to Italy she’d been looking forward to for months, not the handsome young Italian man she’d fallen for, and not the fact that her best friend Simone died in the very accident that put Jill in the hospital.
Painfully, Jill learns what she can about the previous six weeks, and about the accident that left Simone dead. She’s still in shock from the realization that she’ll never again see her best friend when she gets an even bigger shock—that the media, her classmates, and even Simone’s family think the accident that got her here wasn’t an accident at all. The media is painting her as a jealous sociopath who killed her best friend over a petty romantic jealousy. And as “Chilly Jilly,” as the media has nicknamed her, slowly regains pieces of her memory, she’ll even begin to doubt herself.
Don’t miss this thrilling YA suspense—one of this summer’s expert picks. Jealousy, romance, betrayal, and an exotic setting are just a few of the things you’ll love about this book. Fast-paced and addictive (and wonderfully chilling), With Malice is the perfect read for lovers of “twisted” fiction.
