That being said, there are some similarities, but all in all it takes a whole new direction. The light atmosphere clashes somewhat with the overall level of suspense, but readers may not care. It’s not as persistently sarcastic as her adult series, but there’s plenty of humoristic, sassy dialogue.

This boy does not nexxt at AN I received this book free from goodreads. In the beginning, we know from what Lorelei tells us that the Sancutary is like a church, and her grandfather is the Pastor. There are a few twists and turns along the way and something way more sinister working among them but if I reveal that then there won’t be any point to reading the book so I am just going to leave it at that.

Death and the Girl Next Door Quotes

Then I said it, what we were all thinking. Lorelei, has to live with the pain of her parents disappearance. Darynda Jones is best known for her humor in her remarkable Charley Davidson Series.

And once you learn why the one boy hates the other boy it becomes stupid, especially when tje learns the truth and still carries on. Lorelei and her two best friends can lighten up just about any situation they find themselves in.


You don’t have anything to worry about, however, this book is actually void of any love triangle. I know I may speak for myself when I say this, but the sinews and muscles of a male character don’t automatically make my eyes pop and send my amorous senses tingling, not even when I’m reading between YA and adult literature.

Book Review: Death and the Girl Next Door by Darynda Jones

As you know, I detest love triangles. If someone is sexxah enough let them stalk and attempt to kill you. While I had ad few hangups with some of the people, and not wanting info dragged out longer than should need beDeath and the Girl Next Door was still exactly what this paranormal lover was looking for.

I am a huge fan of Darynda Darynxa after reading her Grave series, and I was expecting much more than this. It took a long time for me to realize why Cameron hated Jared so much, and while it was a fair reason, the book not only took too long to reveal it, but was somewhat dismissive of it without much expansion, I felt.

When we eventually get the inside scoop, we’ve got an incredibly unique spin on death, the angel of death, and how Lorelei fits into all draynda this.

She can be found at www. Because while she’d always known Cameron, he acted a little psychotic lately. The narrative was incoherent and disjointed. Christian Grey rated it really liked it Shelves: If the beginning hadn’t been so enjoyable I would’ve gi I apologize for my gushing status updates in the beginning.

What does Jared know about her parents?

Death and the Girl Next Door Quotes by Darynda Jones

She was funny, warm and I saw a lot potential for a possible future love interest for her. Fun start to the series, but information was frustratingly slow to trickle in, and the heroine was slow to clue in on a few obvious conclusions. The visions would be a peak into that person’s life, whether it was a glimpse into their past or their future.


She was obviously in some sort of shock and worrying about the boy’s injuries, but I still uones like the information was being dragged out needlessly.

This will not affect my review, and I will give my honest opinion. Cameron certainly offers a negative, both verbally and physically, aspect toward anything to do with Jared.

Until the day the school’s designated loner, Cameron Lusk, begins to stalk her, turning up where she least expects it, standing outside her house in the dark, night after night. Not to mention the defensive and secret-hiding Cameron, who warns Lorelei of Jared’s evil side Davis was looking at.

And a certain phrase that is repeated throughout the novel that cracks me up.

And I have to wonder if Darynda purposefully named the main character after her narrator? With a strong plot, sexy romance, brilliant and lovable characters, Death and The Girl Next Door is pure epicness all-around.

And I mean, constantly. If they aren’t fist-fighting they’re trading sarcastic quips or glowering at one another. Well, the sassy nature is there somewhat because Lorelei has a distinct voice that carries a certain hit or miss humor throughout the book. And then things become even stranger when we met the new hot guy at school, Jared.
