I have fallen in love with YA Thrillers this year, and when TBR and Beyond Tours announced a blog tour for Killer Content by Kiley Roache, I jumped at the chance to participate!

ABOUT THE BOOK
Knives Out meets One of Us is Lying! In this paperback original thriller, a group of famous TikTokers find themselves turning on each other when one member of the group turns up dead at their beach front Malibu mansion.
35 million followers. One dead body.
The six teenagers who make up the Hype House seem to have it all. A beach front Malibu mansion, millions of TikTok followers, model good looks, and sponsorship deals up to $30,000 per post. Everything’s pretty much a Gen-Z paradise. Except that one member of the house has just turned up dead in the infinity pool. And the rest of them are suspects.
When the group TikTok account starts posting cryptic messages about the murder, the police limit their investigation to the members of the house. Now old joke videos are filed as evidence and past rivalries start to look like motives.
As investigators dig into these influencers’ lives beyond their glossy internet personalities, they discover all five had reasons their lives would’ve been easier with Sydney Reynolds dead. But only one of them killed her.
