Kiss of Death by Lauren Henderson | Book Review

Reading Group: Anyone who read Kiss in the Dark

Personal Rating:  5 out of 5 Stars

Synopses: Scarlett thought Dan McAndrew's murder was long behind her, but when she and her classmates arrive in Edinburgh for a weeklong field trip, she's startled to be joined by her old St. Tabby's cohorts--and enemies--who are visiting the area on a field trip as well. Even more startling, Callum, Dan's surviving twin, is in the area--and his cold treatment leaves Scarlett wondering what's changed, especially when a series of attacks makes her believe that someone's out to get her for her past mistakes. Would Callum ever hurt her, though? And what's Scarlett to make of her conflicting feelings for Callum, now that Jase isn't around? Even more upsetting, why is her most trusted confidante, Taylor, acting distant and dismissive?

Cover: I think that by now we all know that Lauren Henderson doesn't really make her covers relate a whole lot to her books as a whole.  Mostly they have to do with the title of the book, but they do all look very pretty.  I like the title of this book though because it was the title given to Scarlett in the first one and even though she isn't called "Kiss of Death Girl" once in the book, it kind of wraps everything up.

My Review: I think this book is my favorite one in the series because it's the most personal to Scarlett.  Someone is trying to kill her throughout the whole thing, and she's trying to figure out what to do with her relationship with Jase and why Taylor is acting weird.  And yet somehow all three of things are related.  The person trying to kill her is her aunt because she wants to be the heir of Wakefield Hall and she was the one who worked with Jase's dad to kill Scarlett's parents.  Jase is gone because he feels guilty for the actions his family has taken against Scarlett's.  While he's gone, Callum shows up, and Scarlett becomes confused for a little bit as to which boy she wants.  However, after kissing Callum and feeling nothing but regret, Scarlett knows that it's Jase she intends to be with if they can figure everything out, which they do when it becomes clear they both have awful people in their families.  Taylor is acting in a way that Scarlett finds distrustful because she secretly called her brother and had him come to Edenburg to spy on Scarlett and make sure no one hurts her.  He does save her from Aunt Gwen's final try at murder, but it results in Gwen's own death.  Now, Scarlett is the only Wakefield left aside from her grandmother and although it took a lot of tragedy, she is finally able to have the chance to become something close to a normal teenager.
