Deadly Little Lies


Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz
rating 8/10

Last fall, sixteen-year-old Camelia fell for Ben, the mysterious new boy at school who turned out to have a very mysterious gift--pyschometry, the ability to sense the future through touch. But just as Camelia and Ben's romance began to heat up, he abruptly left town. Brokenhearted, Camelia has spent the last few months studying everything she can about psychometry, and experiencing her own strange brushes with premonition. Camelia wonders if Ben's abilities have somehow rubbed off on her. Can the power of psychometry be transferred?

Even once Ben returns to school, Camelia can't get close enough to share her secret with him. Despite the romantic tension between them, Ben remains aloof, avoiding contact. Then when an unexpected kiss leads to a frightening argument, Camelia makes the painful decision to let Ben go and move on. Adam, the hot new guy at work, seems good for her in ways Ben wasn't. Adam is easygoing, and seems to really care about her.
But when Camelia and Adam start dating, a surprising love triangle results. A chilling sequence of events upturns secrets from Ben's past--and Adam's. Someone is lying, and it's up to Camelia to figure out who-before it's too late.

I loved Deadly Little Secrets, so I was really excited to read Deadly Litlle Lies. Deadly Little Lies had just as much mystery, suspense and romance as the last book.

Camelia and Ben's relationship truly was like a roller coaster. There was so much tension between the two and I loved it. The love triangle brought into this was way different from anything else. There was so many secrets and mystery in this part of the book alone.

There were a lot of things I liked about this book. The writing and the plot were great. Sometimes Camelia's stupidity was a little too much for me, though. With everything that was happening, it seemed like she never took her own safty seriously. But it still was good  and I can't wait for Deadly Little Games.
