Kiss Me Kill Me & Kisses and Lies

So, I recently finished reading Kiss Me Kill Me, very quickly followed by Kisses and Lies by Lauren Henderson.

This synopsis for Kiss Me Kill Me is from Lauren Henderson's website:

When 16-year-old Scarlett Wakefield transfers from St. Tabby’s to Wakefield Hall Collegiate, she is relieved that no one knows her dark, haunting secret. A few months ago, Scarlett was invited to an elite party with a guest list full of the hottest names in British society, including Dan McAndrew. Before the party, Scarlett had only imagined what it would be like to have her first kiss with Dan, but on the penthouse terrace, Dan leaned in close and she no longer had to wonder.

Their kiss was beautiful and perfect and magical, and then... Dan McAndrew took his last breath as she held him in her arms. No one knows how or why Dan died, and everyone at St. Tabby’s believes Scarlett had something to do with it. But now that she’s safely hidden away at Wakefield Hall, Scarlett would rather forget that it ever happened. Only she can’t. Especially when she receives an anonymous note that will set her on the path to clearing her name and finding out what really happened to the first and last boy she kissed.

My thoughts:

The Cover:

I think this cover is good and I love that there are two fonts used for the title. It also works with the story and the title.

The book:
This book is full of suspense and twists, but also blossoming
relationships and 'normal' teenage problem.
Kiss Me Kill Me is a gripping page-turner as Scarlett investigates the
death of Dan McAndrew in order to clear her name. She is a relatable
teenage girl that just wants to live a normal life and I like that.

Don't Read This If You Haven't Read Kiss Me Kill Me

This synopsis for Kisses and Lies is from Lauren Henderson's website:

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.

The Book:

I enjoyed Kisses and Lies even more than Kiss Me Kill Me. This sequel has even MORE page-turning suspense. I could not put
this one down. In this one, Scarlett is continuing her quest to clear her
name, but now it becomes even more important to her to solve. Now it's
more for closure and to solve the mystery of Dan's death and even turns into a deadly survival game. Scarlett must now watch her back and the
entire time, Scarlett doesn't know who to trust and neither does the

At certain parts of this story, I found my heart pounding with anticipation and suspense while Scarlett investigated Dan's death.

When I finished reading this book, I wanted to talk about it and I
thoroughly enjoyed this one.

I eagerly await the third in the series, Kiss in the Dark, which will be
released April 13th 2010.

The cover:
I like the one the best of the three in the series.
