Premeditated by Josin L. McQuein

Summary on Goodreads.

Imagine a Gothic Dinah morphing into a Barbie to make the guy that allegedly hurt her cousin fall for her to point of, well, I expect killing himself.

Cool, eh? Well, that is NOT what I got here, although it is what the summary led me to believe.

All I got from old Dinah was the mention that she had black hair and wore a belt with big buckle on her hip. Unfortunately, the story starts with an already blond Dinah determined to bring justice because... Apparently she loves her cousin? I don't know where this love came from and why she had to take upon herself to elicit justice.

Anyway, skip to page 288 where Dinah-not-Diana finally faces Brooks and "what he did." Because let's face it, you know from page two that Brook could not have been the culprit, yet Dinah didn't see that until 10 pages before the end of the story... when she finally decides to check her cousin's cell phone. Lame.

The book is catalogued under 'thriller' and 'mystery'. Well, it was really thrilling DNFing it and, it is definitely a mystery why some people like it :-)
