Kisses and Lies by Lauren Henderson

Rating: 4.5/5

After discovering that someone saw what looked like Dan's emergency EpiPen in A-lister Plum's designer handbag, Scarlett and her tough American sidekick, Taylor, sneak into a posh London nightclub, where Plum has a private table. Scarlett is stunned to discover a piece of evidence that might implicate another girl in Plum's exclusive circle, Lucy Raleigh. Which means Scarlett must cast a wider net in order to catch the right suspect.

Back at school, groundskeeper Jase is hoping to take Scarlett's mind off her troubles with some heart-stopping kisses. Scarlett can't help but feel guilty for indulging in romantic rendezvous when she should be hunting down Dan's killer. However, once Scarlett finds out how Lucy is connected to Dan, she knows she must drop everything and travel to the McAndrew estate in Scotland to hunt for more clues. But when she arrives, Scarlett becomes the target of a dangerous hunt herself.

When I read the first book in the Scarlett Wakefield series, KISS ME, KILL ME, I fell in love with it and I was dying to get my hands and begin reading the second book. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint. It was a full blown roller coaster.

But I do have to give you a warning: Do NOT read this book f you have not read the first one. You will be very confused. The book picks off right where KISS ME, KILL ME left off, and there is a little recap, but not enough for you to skip the book. Here Scarlett is going after to find out why Dan died. She does travel to Scotland to Dan's family and that whole journey is amazing. I'm not going to say much about it since I don't want to give away anything from this book, but there are twists and turns and never did I want to put this book down. I cannot wait to read the third book in the series, KISS IN THE DARK.

The cover of this book was much better than the first one. I wasn't too big of a fan of the first one, but this one seemed much different. By judging just by the cover, you probably won't think this book is a mystery since there is nothing dark in the cover. Actually, when I saw it first, I thought it was going to be a chick lit book.

Overall, this book was amazing and I will be reading every book in the series.
