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 a series of eerie notes echoes the threats of last semester—and Ben keeps his distance—Camelia makes the painful decision to let 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- Goodreads

I really enjoyed the suspense and the crazy mystery of Deadly Little Secret. I expected the same from this book. Although the first book seemed like a stand-alone, theres a whole long series surrounding this premise. I was hoping this book would surprising just like the first, but this book kind of took a different route. It did have the same creepy feel to it, which I totally enjoyed. I was home alone one day reading this book and thought I was being watched. Yeah tip of advice don't read this alone or at night. The plot was intriguing until the end when this train took a turn into crazy plot town. I can only hope that the next book recaptures the essense of th first. 

The characters were pretty good. Camelia should learn by now to just speak up, but I still liked her character. She made sense and I agred with her point of view most of the time. Her friends were hilarious and pretty great in this book, but I did have some problems with Kimmie. Sometimes Kimmie seemed like she did not care about Camelia, which irked me. Ben was pretty good. I didn't mind him. Adam though... the plot surrounding him still has me confused. I just wonder why that one thing had to happen. Some plot "twists" made this book unbelievable and bordered on ridiculous.

The ending was so ridiculous. I feel like it could have been more reasonable. The stalked wasn't even a logical one. Like I understood why that person would d it, but it was so stupid! The first book was surprising and mysterious, this ending made this book into a beginning grade-school Nancy Drew book. I really hope the next book is more intense.

My Favorite Part: Probably how the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat.

Do I recommend this book? Yep. I just hope the next book is a little more practical.

Will I be reading the next book? I think so.

Thanks for reading!
