Having read Dying to be Roman, this book was a fantastic way to gain a more intimate understanding of Dia and Julia’s backstories, and with authors E.M. Swift-hook and Jane Jago at the helm, there was never a question of quality. The writing is entertaining and imaginative from the first to last page, and its pace creates a feeling of instantaneous immersion. This is exactly the type of read I am looking for when I pick up a novella; something I can sit down and read in one go like watching a movie. Dying to be Friends is another brilliant offering from two authors who I feel have become synonymous with the word. If you read and enjoyed the first book in the series, this is a must read that is sure to have you begging for more.

I left a five star review for Dying to Be Roman, and if I could, I’d leave a 6th star for this second outing. As much as I enjoyed Dai and Julia’s first case together, I dug their respective back-stories even more. Jago and Swift-Hook know these characters, what makes them tick–they are more fully realized because of it. And I think that’s what makes this second book shine. I have to say though, I liked Dai’s prequel story slightly more. Looking forward to further Roman adventures with the pair.
