Some secrets shouldn’t be kept…
Up until three months ago, everything in sixteen-year-old Camelia’s life had been fairly ordinary: decent grades; an okay relationship with her parents; and a pretty cool part-time job at the art studio downtown. But when Ben, the mysterious new guy, starts junior year at her high school, Camelia’s life becomes anything but ordinary.

Rumored to be somehow responsible for his ex-girlfriend’s accidental death, Ben is immediately ostracized by everyone on campus. Except for Camelia. She’s reluctant to believe the rumors, even when her friends try to convince her otherwise. She’s inexplicably drawn to Ben…and to his touch. But soon, Camelia is receiving eerie phone calls and strange packages with threatening notes. Ben insists she is in danger, and that he can help–but can he be trusted? She knows he’s hiding something… but he’s not the only one with a secret.

From the best-selling author of Blue is for Nightmares comes a story of paranormal romance that’s sure to be a thrilling and chilling teen favorite.

One benefit to having the flu, I can stay in bed and read a whole book in one afternoon. Coming from a woman who loved Encyclopedia Brown and Christopher Pike series when I was a little girl this was a fun thriller. It kept me on the edge, trying to figure out who is stalking Camelia. Once I picked up this book I never put it down until the case was closed and mystery solved.
Camelia and Ben have a chemistry that is undeniable and wonderfully selfless. I enjoyed that Camelia seems to have all of these boys flirting with her and is oblvious. She is down to earth and in touch with who she is. Ben… well I adored him! Just wait until you read the scene in her pottery studio/ place of employment! But I will say no more! The book is written from two perspective’s…the main female character Cameila and notes from the person who is watching her. LOVED this book. I am fascinated to see what happens next in Deadly Little Lies. Going to read it, now I have to!
