Today I’m super excited to participate in the Blog Tour of ‘Rumors’ by A.C. Arthur. ‘Rumors’ is an adult murder mystery/thriller that was published by Alloy Entertainment in December 2014.

About the Book:
Rumor has it…he will kill again.
Her death tore them apart. Will solving her murder bring them back together?
Best friends Landy, Tenile, Nicole, Nathan, Justin, and Kareem were the golden children of Tanner University. Their paths were set: doctors, lawyers, business moguls, they were going to light the world on fire. Then, two weeks before graduation, Landy was murdered—and Nathan was blamed. Though he was never charged, vicious rumors drove him from town, and the circle of friends broke.
Ten years later, Nathan is back in Tanner, determined to clear his name. He’s asking questions no one wants answered, and soon rumors threaten to divide the community once more. Everyone in this small town is keeping big secrets—especially Landy’s old friends—and someone is willing to kill to keep their darkest deeds buried…
The book description of ‘Rumors’ was something that immediately spoke to me. It sounded like a very interesting read and I really wanted to read it. Although the book cover didn’t really work for me, the book description was good enough to make me really excited to start reading.
In ‘Rumors’ we meet a group of friends, 10 years after their friendships and lives were drastically changed after the murder of one of their best friends, Landy. Nathan, who was one of the main suspects for the murder of Landy, left Tanner after he found out that even his friends and the love of his life, had their doubts about Nathan innocence. Now, 10 years later, there is a memorial service for Landy, and Nathan decides to attend and prove his innocence ones and for all.
Tenile’s life is finally getting back on track after her best friend was murdered, and after the man she loved left her suddenly and without explanation. Tenile has a good job and she is in a loving relationship with Justin. But when Tenile finds out there will be a memorial service for Landy, her mind is filled with everything that happened all those years ago.
Soon the group of friends are having a little reunion, but there is a lot of history and there are a lot of secrets and those secrets will change everything.
From the moment I started reading ‘Rumors’ I really enjoyed it. The writing style is very easy to follow, the characters are well described and the story flows easily. This book is written through the point of views of at least five people, and although that sounds like a lot.. It made this book very enjoyable if you ask me. The main characters in this book are old friends and through reading the story through all those different eyes you get the story from many different sides. Since there is still no one arrested for the murder of Landy, reading the events through those different sides just made this book very addicting and fun to read.
What I liked the most about this book was the way there were more secrets revealed how further you got. There were a lot of secrets of which I had no clue of, especially not in the beginning. Most times while reading a book like this, I have some ideas about what will happen next and what kind of secrets are being revealed. Not in this book. There was mystery, romance and a fun rumor filled town. I just really enjoyed it.
The ending of this book was a little disappointing for me. But not in a bad way. I just didn’t want it to end. I really hope there will be another book continuing on this story.
