Review of Swipe Right for Murder by Polly Harris


Have you ever been worried about the people that you're meeting on those dating apps? I admit that I have had some moments of hesitation. And in this book, she truly has a reason to be worried! Check out my review of Swipe Right for Murder by Polly Harris and then download your own copy to find out what happens! There's also a great giveaway. Follow the tour to catch it all!


After a devastating heartbreak and a string of short-lived, failed relationships, college student Georgie Itoyama has now decided to approach dating in the same way that she approaches everything else: methodically, logically, and efficiently.

Georgie downloads countless dating apps, determined to find the love of her life as easily as she orders jeans online. And while her love-at-first-sight aspirations don’t exactly come true, she does find someone she likes. Quite a lot.

There’s only one problem. Girls are going missing at Georgie’s university, and all the signs are pointing to . . . him?

But that’s ridiculous. What are the chances that she’s dating an actual serial killer?

Then she matches with Nate. Mysterious, intelligent, and oddly fixated on solving the local disappearances. As Georgie’s relationships deepen with each of her guys, she unwittingly finds herself caught up in the mess that is murder, intrigue, and the nightmare of online dating.

**My thoughts**

I am of a different generation than the characters in this book, but we did kick off the whole internet dating thing via online chatting. And I remember the paranoia even back then about dating a murderer. A friend of mine actually did, but was a lucky one. So I do understand Georgie's concern once she thinks that Ash may be the serial killer who has been going after the girls on campus. After all, he does have a connection to them all. I'm just not sure if I could have continued to date and hang out with him with that thought.

Then again, if he is a killer, you don't want to tip him off to your suspicious. I just don't know that I would plan anything that was super private without telling a lot of people where I was, checking in regularly. And definitely not out of cell range.

But I can't really know what I would do unless I was actually confronted with that situation., My constant questioning of what I would actually do helped me to stay completely engrossed in this book, though. I needed to figure out the truth and appreciated the twists as they came. 

This was a fun read. But pardon me while I steer clear of the dating apps again for a while.
