Oh man, this getting really old. Every time I write a review my computer freezes and I have to close everything and write it alll over again. It gets really frustrating. So here I am again, trying to get in a review before everyone gives up on me and never visits my blog again... (Ok so maybe I'm being a little dramatic, but hey, it could happen.) Sigh... Anyways, I finished Siren by Tricia Rayburn and you guys know how I'm obsessed with murder mystery, so here's another one!
Vacationing in Winter Harbor, Maine, is a tradition for Vanessa and Justine Sands, and that means spending time with the Carmichael boys. This summer, Vanessa is determined to channel some of her older sister’s boldness, get over her fear of the ocean, and maybe turn her friendship with Simon Carmichael into something much more.
But when Justine goes cliff-diving after a big family argument, and her body washes ashore the next day, Vanessa is sure that it was more than an accident. She is more certain of this, when she discovers that her sister was keeping some big secrets and Caleb Carmichael’s gone missing. Suddenly, the entire oceanfront town is abuzz when a series of grim, water-related accidents occur, with the male victims washed ashore grinning from ear to ear.
Vanessa and Simon team up to figure out if these creepy deaths have anything to do with Justine and Caleb. But will what Vanessa discovers mean the end of her summer romance, or even life as she knows it?
This book had a lot of things I like, it had a great plot, awesome characters, and great twists. One thing I didn't like was that it was a bit confusing at parts, like either there was too much detail or too little, and another thing is that it was kind of too dark for me (just a smidge, not too bad).Other than that, it totally met my expectations. Vanessa was a really great character, she wasn't too perfect, she had her insecurities and her imperfections which just made her more enjoyable to read about. Also, it was cool to see how she grew throughout the book. Her and Simon I think made an awesome pair to read about, even though at the end I was furious at them. But even still, they made a really good team and made the book even better. I really liked that whenever you thought you knew something, some other twist came up and you had to start wondering again. I never like an easy mystery and I was really interested to see how it all came out in the end. The ending frustrated me a little bit, but I guess it just makes me want to read the second book in the series even more, Undercurrent. Overall, I'm really glad I picked up this book and I think everyone should read it!!!
This book deserves...
4.5 STARS!!!
