Goodreads Synopsis:

When Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead take a road trip, they discover that their small-town problems seem to follow them wherever they go.

Archie’s on trial for murder, and the evidence is stacked against him. Betty, Veronica, and Jughead all know that Archie is being framed by Hiram Lodge, but how can they prove it?

The gang comes up with a last-ditch plan to prove Archie’s innocence: They have to go back to the scene of the crime. They have to go back to Shadow Lake.

Threats are around every corner deep in the woods at the Lodge family cabin. Will the teens find the evidence they need to clear Archie’s name? And more importantly, will they make it back to Riverdale alive?


I loved the first book in this series, which was set before the events of the show Riverdale began. I was so excited to read this new book in the series!

This story switches perspectives between all of the main characters in Riverdale. All of their voices are authentic. I could hear the characters’ voices while I was reading. This made the book so good!

The story started out very well. It switched between characters frequently and was exciting. However, it got a little boring when Archie, Veronica, Betty, and Jughead went to the Lodge. They had some flashbacks to random events at Riverdale High, which didn’t move the story forward.

The author had the challenge of writing this book to take place in the middle of the TV series. The book had to give some new details to keep fans of the show entertained, but not spoil anything or change what ultimately happens on the show. She did a great job of writing this book.

This book is great for fans of Riverdale.
