I got this book free as a read for honest review, here is the decrisption from amazon:
Jasmine’s life wasn’t normal for a 16 year old girl. It hadn’t been normal since the murder of her older sister, Daisy, two years ago. Her life had been changed forever. The monster that murdered Daisy was never caught. That was the reason her family decided to move away from their hometown in Southern California, to start over. Hopefully in a place where the last name Rourke wouldn’t bring on staring or judgment or morbid curiosity.
In Lafayette, Louisiana things are quite a bit different but in a good way. Good manners, Cajun accents and a whole lot of Southern Hospitality all make her think things are going in the right direction. On top of that the most gorgeous boy she has ever met is interested in her. Her new friends are better than she could have hoped for even if she is worried about what they might think when they find out who she is. Life would be perfect if odd things didn’t keep happening. Creepy phone calls, texts, and flowers in her locker start adding up quickly to something terrifying. Could the Monster have followed them to Lafayette? Was he coming after her this time? Maybe she was just worrying unnecessarily…or not.
Okay, so not my usual type of book, I normally only read young adult books or new adult if it has some sort of fantasy element in it. But none the less I decided to give this books a try and I was not disappointed. It has all the intrigue and suspense of a good crime or thiller novel, with the thrill of a blossoming romance and all wrapped up with the easy reading of a young adult novel. I liked the characters and the fact that it deals with an actual issue rather than high school issues.
One of the best parts was that it had all the emotional side of what happens when someone is murdered but did not have much in blood and guts. It a fairly short read, just less than 200 pages but it really was not missing anything for me, the only reason I did not give it five stars is that I did manage to put it down, other than that it is great read.
When I was reading this book I was always wanting more, to find out exactly what happened to make Jasmine and her family move across country and have Jasmine scared out of her wits.
Here is where I normally put the links of other bloggers that have reviewed the book in question well today it seems that there are not any other people that have blogged about it. So you will have to make do with my words of wisdom.
Looking forward to next time, which will be a review of the second book in the Hex Hall series. Night Bookworms.
