Private: Revelation by Kate Brian

The biggest mystery of all...and Reed is dying to learn the truth.

Two months after Cheyenne Martin was found dead in her Billings House dorm room, exclusive Easton Academy is rocked by another stunning revelation: Cheyenne was murdered. No one knows who the killer is, but everyone agrees that Reed Brennan, who took over Cheyenne's role as Billings's president, gained the most from her death. Once the most powerful girl on campus, Reed is now powerless to stop her classmates' accusing whispers. Rumors begin to swirl that she killed Cheyenne.

And just like that, Reed is kicked out of Billings.

She's lost everything — her friends, her home, her boyfriend — and Reed knows the only way to get it all back is to figure out who really murdered Cheyenne. And she has to do it fast because the killer is still out there. The more Reed investigates, the more she uncovers. And as any Billings Girl knows...secrets can be deadly.

Another spine tingling mystery solved at Easton A. The "Revelation" wasn't really one for me. It was more of a confirmation of all my theories. All my guesses as to who the killer was and his/her motives were was spot on. But enough about that let's get down to the meat of the story.

As you know from the synopsis, Reed is back to negative one on the social radar that she loves (and hates) so much. I have to admit that it was really painful to read her tragic fall from grace and the way she was treated but it made for a pretty good read. Her fall from grace was sort of a blessing in disguise because without it she wouldn't have gained the allies she did or secure the necessary clues to help her find the killer.

This would (possible) be my last book read for this series. I believe anything more is like fanning a flame that's about to go out. It's sad but I believe it's time to move on.
