Having now been revealed to have its Netflix US debut this August, all eyes are most certainly on the new series adaptation of Holly Jackson's hit YA novel series A Good Girl's Guide To Murder.


The acclaimed book has been given the TV treatment for the BBC and while international viewers will have to wait a little while until its release, UK viewers will be able to enjoy the series from this July.

The series follows Pippa 'Pip' Fitz-Amobi (played by Emma Myers), who is carrying out her own investigation into a murder that was seemingly solved five years ago.

But she believes the real killer is still out there...

Our own review of the new whodunnit says gave the series an impressive four stars and said that "the pacing throughout is propulsive and Myers, who is particularly convincing in moments of danger, seamlessly matches that as the protagonist employs her mettle and mind to uncover Andie's killer."

A Good Girl's Guide To Murder plot: What's it about?

Half a decade after schoolgirl Andie Bell was killed, Pip Fitz-Amobi sets out to uncover what really happened to her.

Sal Singh, Andie's boyfriend, admitted to her murder, before then taking his own life, but Pip doesn't believe he's responsible and teams up with Sal's brother Ravi to uncover the truth.

"If Sal Singh isn't a murderer and the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pip from the truth?" adds the official synopsis.

The author of the hit novel, Holly Jackson, also revealed that there were lots of notes to be made on the early scripts of the series in order to keep the show as close to the source material as possible for the fans.

Speaking to RadioTimes.com and other press, Jackson said: "They were not initially, I think, as true to the book as they needed to be."

She went on: "So we worked a lot on bringing that back because I knew that the reason the books are where they are is because of the readers, and if we made a show that they weren't happy with, we're kind of screwing ourselves over there."
