Reed is primarily concerned with being liked and popular and often lacks the smarts that I admire in a protagonist. Plus, Scarlett is much better at solving mysteries - always a plus in a mystery novel. I'm confident that the next book will make up for that though.

As I mentioned, the first volume of Scarlett's story was a bit slow, at least in the beginning. By the end the story had picked up momentum and catapulted me toward the next book - leaving me grateful that I waited to read KMKM because I don't particularly like the waiting part of series. The mystery aspect of the novel was well written, but readers only really get a taste of a conclusion. The bulk of the book was introductions to characters and theories.

The ending left me wholly unsatisfied since nothing was really solved - so readers who read KMKM back in and had to wait for the next book must have gone crazy. Most of the book was from Scarlett's POV, but there were anonymous journal entries interspersed that really added to the novel. At the beginning that really intrigued me, though I think that Scarlett solved that little mystery a little too easily. They are quick and easy reads with just a dash of romance! Here, at Wakefield, unlike at her previous school St.

Tabby's, no one knows her dark secret. A couple of months ago, Scarlett was invited to a party at one of the It girls homes. She'd only ever dreamed of going to their parties, but now that she's gone, the party lives in her nightmares. After hours of finding the perfect outfit to buy, getting her makeup and hair just right, Scarlett was finally ready to enjoy the party--and she did. For a little while. Besides dreaming of what it would be like to attend parties like the one she was at, she had also dreamt of what it would be like to kiss Dan McAndrew What Scarlett never could have imagine, though, was that once she kissed Dan, he would die.

Just drop dead in her arms. And so begins the murder mystery of Kiss Me, Kill Me that's not so much a murder mystery. The book is a good book to read and follows the premise that no one knows what killed Dan but everyone blames Scarlett so she moves to Wakefield Hall to escape the scrutiny only to have someone there begin leaving her anonymous notes.

I really liked that Scarlett was involved in gymnastics--and not just in the 'jump in the air and flip around' sense but she really was and it was woven into the story--and, as I said, I did enjoy this book, but it ended very abruptly. There is a sequel coming out in January so I'm not sure if the plan is to flesh everything out then but I felt kind of cheated because it set everything up to possibly be this great, Here's-What-Happened It didn't pull things in that had happened in the start or one or two tiny ones , but nothing that a good mystery does where you can say, oh wait!

KIRKUS REVIEW

The sequel Kisses and Lies isn't out yet so I can't say this for certain, but maybe reading them together will be more satisfying? Lauren Henderson. Home Groups Talk Zeitgeist.

Scarlett Wakefield 1. But then, she hasn't seen him in months, not since he took off on his motorcycle for parts unknown. So, yes. And now, with Kiss of Death , the fourth and final book, I find myself wishing that the series had been a duo rather than a quartet. But, overall Lacking in the spunky verve of the first two books, lacking in the suspense and romance, and lacking in the energy, period.

About This Item

Some of the lethargic feel can be chalked up to Scarlett's general emotional state, but not all of it. Kiss of Death just didn't POP!

In addition, there were a couple of storylines that felt like they were unplanned and possibly even just added to make the threads come together. I'm going to attempt this without spoilers, so the following won't make much sense unless you've read the book:. Kiss Me Kill Me 2.

I am still going to read this one, I really like Scarlett and Taylor. Taylor's romance sounds like a real let down. I didn't think the two would like the same type of guy at all.
