Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Publisher: Disney/Hyperion
Age Group: YA

Rating: 4/5
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.

Deadly Little Lies is the sequal to the fast paced Deadly Little Secret. It continues right where book 1 left off and a new character is introduced - Adam. Adam felt very mysterious at the beginning and when Camelia begins wondering what is up with Adam's past, Stolarz brings you back to the moment that you can't trust anyone. I'm not going to say much about this book because I don't want to give away any spoilers away, but it's nothing like the first book and I happened to like this book better because there was so much more to the story and a lot more mystery.

This cover is my favorite cover so far. The night sky in the background is so mysterious that once I saw this book was out, I immediatly grabbed it and devoured it in only 4 hours (it would have been 2 or less, but I had homework.)

Overall, if you loved the first book, this one is so much better!
