But when Camelia and Alex start dating, a surprising love triangle results. A chilling sequence of events upturns secrets from Ben's past-and Alex's. Someone is lying, and it's up to Camelia to figure out who-before it's too late.
Deadly Little Lies is a fast read with lots of suspense that'll have you sitting at the edge of your seat throughout the whole book. I found the plot much like the previous book, I hate to say so. I enjoy Laurie's writing and how she can place suspense in her books without you even thinking twice about who it could be. I found Camelia to be a ditz, no offense, but if someone wrote 'You're Dead' (Please tell me that wasn't a spoiler, of any type) where I only saw it I'd be running to my parents- not hiding the fact. Overall I really liked the characters, the writing, the suspense, and the book! Look forward to the release around December.
(My reviews are always short >.<)
