Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Some secrets shouldn't be kept...
Up until three months ago, everything in sixteen-year-old Camelia's life had been fairly ordinary: decent grades; an okay relationship with her parents; and a pretty cool part-time job at the art studio downtown. But when Ben, the mysterious new guy, starts junior year at her high school, Camelia's life becomes anything but ordinary.
Rumored to be somehow responsible for his ex-girlfriend's accidental death, Ben is immediately ostracized by everyone on campus. Except for Camelia. She's reluctant to believe the rumors, even when her friends try to convince her otherwise. She's inexplicably drawn to Ben...and to his touch. But soon, Camelia is receiving eerie phone calls and strange packages with threatening notes. Ben insists she is in danger, and that he can help--but can he be trusted? She knows he's hiding something... but he's not the only one with a secret.

I read Blue Is For Nightmares before reading this book and I absolutely fell in love with it. So when I saw another book series by the same author, I knew i had to read it. It's hard to read another book series by the same author because you can't help to compare them. Well when I picked up this book I didn't even think about comparisons. Since page one I loved it. I love books with the whole 'stalker' theme. Don't know why, call me weird, but i do. I've always loved a good mystery. So add this up: supernatural+mystery+stalking+hot bad-ass = AWESOME BOOK! I mean it, one of the best ones I've read in quite some time. It kept me guessing and guessing and it also kept me hooked. The plot was an amazing combination of a little bit of drama, and whole lots of mystery, romance and paranormal. The characters are likeable, they like to take risks and are headstrong, which was one of the many aspects I loved. I love the unpredictable truth about the stalker and the ending that is not quite a cliffhanger but it leaves you wanting more. I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a good mystery and paranormal romance. 

How many stars?
