Book Review: Death and the Girl Next Door by Darynda Jones
Even more puzzling than the sudden appearance of Jared is that Lorelei now has a stalker. The writing is good enough. Certainly not funny when Lorelei realizes that Jared’s was trying to kill her and did an about face and saved her life. The main love interest: It’s not a terrible book, I guess, but it is very slow and confusing. I found it exceedingly interesting, unquestionably original, but I was dying for answers; it takes a while before details are finally given up.
Very intriguing story, truly! They are so fun, not dpor and uptight and old. This book was bizarre, and not in a good way.
Death and the Girl Next Door
Lorelei, has to live with the pain of her parents disappearance. I can’t really mention them all without giving away tons of spoilers.
About his abilities, Cameron’s strong dislike towards him – basically, just what the heck is happening. Darynda Jones is brillant. And The Not So Much: Aug 30, Rose rated it it was ok Shelves: It’s the next Twilight meets House of Night. Even their constant fighting had a purpose aside from Cameron’s revenge. I never thought anything would come from it. Girl meets mysterious, sexy boy and learns that there is a paranormal world out there and must embrace her powers to save the world.
Both are hot, sexy and mysterious, but each one as intriguing as ad other!
Cameron seemed to lose some of his anger whenever he spoke to Brooklyn, and he seemed znd in awe of her, especially during their conversation about auras. I think Jared and Cameron struck me as the typical immortal enemies and Lorelei focused far more on Jared’s body and physical hotness and strength rather than really connecting to him as a being.
But regardless, I loved how she accepted doo this was just a part of who she was. How does Lorelei fit into the all this madness? Thank you Sam for reading this with me! See all 5 questions about Death and the Girl Next Door…. Open Preview See a Problem? He loved her hair.
Hardly any explanation – There were a lot of things in this book that just went unexplained, period. A strong jaw the next. Lorelei is nothing at all like Charley Davidson.

So, I wondered what Darynda would do in YA. And I have to wonder if Darynda purposefully named the main character after her narrator?

It’s unique in a way that only Darynda can make it with her humorous and entertaining writing. It felt like the writer was actually approving of this. Regardless if this is good news to you or not, you can look forward to a sexy, steamy, and swoon-worthy romance.
I think that Lorelei felt sorry for Jared, and was so blinded by his stunning, gorgeous, beautiful, etc etc I’m not even exaggerating here, she mentions his beauty ALL THE TIME that she convinced herself “since he saved me, he must not mean me any harm whatsoever” and that she was in love with him.
Jun 22, Yodamom rated it really liked it Shelves: The only payment received came in the form of hugs and kisses from my little boys. Fifth, although a secret society is involved, no one gets naked to perform weird rituals.
I like it when authors try something outside of their comfort zone. I had no idea of what was going on. I quite like the mythology here.
She swung her surprised look at me. I look foreword to seeing where these teens travel to on their quest and who they become in the process. They’re the kind of characters that just draw you in; especially Lorelei, who you can’t help but appreciate for being so real. It’s not as persistently sarcastic as her adult series, but there’s plenty of humoristic, sassy dialogue. As for the story – there isn’t a single cliche moment in it.
