First of all, bravo to the person who designed the cover because that is definitely a freaky beginning.  It draws the reader in and makes you think - hmmm....what is this all about? I received my copy from NetGalley and am interested in the whodunit scenario.  Besides, I also kind of miss a little bit of the Gossip Girl type posts...
