    I really liked this one better than the first The story is similar except for the love triangle The new character Adam adds to the story and the author does a great job adding conflict I LOVE THAT FINALLY THE GIRL GIVES THE GUY THE BOOT Bella couldn t let Edward go, Rose couldn t let Dimitri go, and so on Camelia stands up for herself and makes Ben deal with his decision You don t want to be with me then deal with it Good for her Summary Camelia gets threatening letters and photos again Everyne thinks it s a joke, but she doesn t think so Turns out that Debbie coma girl from book 1 wants to set Ben up so that he forced to leave town Aunt Alexia is still in the psych hospital and her parents go to visit her We find out that Aunt Alexia has the same gift as Camelia.Reminders for the next book Camelia She also has the gift of psychometry through sculpture Ben tells her that he wants distance and won t touch her Cameial asks to switch partners and suffers tha backlash The tension between the two is well written In the end, he comes back and they decide to be together forever Can he read her thoughts Ben Comes back and wants space because he fears hurting her He can t let go though and misses her so he frequently pops up Thank god he finally gives and goes to her and says that he won t leave her.Adam Potential love interest who is genuinely nice He s funny, caring, and seems like a good guy Unfortunately, he is Adam s ex best friends who came to Freetown to make Ben see how it feels to lose someone you care about He says that it was stupid and that he really does care about Camelia Possible further conflict in the next book Don t think so.Kimmie Her parents fighting gets much worse to the point where the father leaves Her father says some terrible things to her and Nate She dates Todd who leaves hickies on her This is all for attention.Wes Things at home have also gotten really bad for him Wes does not want to open up and I think the author let this part of the story fall From his pain, you can see that he needs to open up.Predictions The next book focuses on Aunt Alexia I think Ben and Camelia go and visit her.

    For this book, i have five rules Number 1 Trust no one Number 2 Don t make any assumptions Number 3 Try not to scream Number 4 Don t believe anyone And Number Five Stolarz kicks ass.I was blown away by this novel, even so than by Deadly Little Secret It sucks you in from the first page, and is very difficult to put down until the end Stolarz was fabulous at displaying Camelia s fears, and that made the book even easier to get into The story starts off with action, builds up a ton of suspense, and then BAM You are left completely and utterly shocked by the conclusion The mysterious air from Deadly Little Secret most definitely returns in this fabulous sequel, and will have you hanging on till the end Ben and Camelia s complicated, yet still very there, romance was a hooking subplot to the story, for you constantly are wondering if and when they will ever realize how much they both need eachother But, throughout the story you begin to doubt Ben, which causes that urge to yell for Camelia to leave him alone The eery attraction Adam seems to have for Camelia most definitely added conflict as well, making you wonder if maybe, just maybe, their relationship could survive longer than Camelia and Ben s.The threat of another stalker, and the worry that Matt may be returning kept me turning pages eagerly, hoping that none of Camelia s friends would turn out to be just the opposite The voices Camelia hears and eerie messeges she recieves only increase your suspcion, and make sure you are always pointing your finger at someone else.Being a major fan horror films, i was very surprised by how much this novel exceeded my expectations, and even made me want to glance under the bed and lock all the doors Deadly Little Lies is perfect for a late at night read, when the entire house is silent and the only noise is your fingers against the pages It was like watching a horror film and screaming at the screen for the person to do something, but they can t hear you This book It s scary Leah at

    There is just something about this series that makes me plow through the books like there is no tomorrow Camelia is far from my favorite main character out of the books I ve read, though her little back up team, Kimmie and Wes are some of my favorite side kick characters They re both very interesting and quirky, and Wes reminds me a lot of Adam from the Mediator series by Meg Cabot and I LOVE Adam in that series Anyway, this book was thrilling, though not as spine tingling as the first book WELL, not when it came to the stalker aspect, at least But Camelia and Ben in Deadly Little Lies Let s just say, I should be paralyzed with what they put my spine through while reading this I have to admit, they did get annoying with their back and forth, can t be together, but have to be near you, thing going on But I think they ve got a great dynamic going on.As for Adam I really liked him I love the whole I m going to use you to get back at Ben but now I ve fallen for you thing I ve yet to read the third book, and this was the second time I ve read this one, so I m hoping Deadly Little Games has Adam I really wouldn t mind some development between him and Camelia I have a feeling that, even with how this book ended, Ben and Camelia aren t headed for a happily ever after I love Ben, but in this moment, I am team Adam Let s see how this goes.I m kind of hoping that at some point in this series, they bring Matt back I loved him He was crazy I like crazy P And I m looking forward to what they do with Aunt Alexia As it is, Camelia s mom, Jilly, bugs me, even though all of her actions and reactions are completely understandable It s weird Oh, well On to the next book This one was sizzling

    Deadly Little Lies, the sequel to the first book in the series, Deadly Little Secret, definitely lives up to its promise of suspense, romance and plot twists Laurie Faria Stolarz really knows how to construct an elaborate plot to flow with such ease, and continuously keep you on the edge of your seat with the mystery and romance of the narrative Starting a few months after Ben leaves Camelia s life, the story immediately takes off with a burst of heart pounding action that just keeps on rolling the entire novel Right from page one, Camelia is immediately caught up in a new dangerous situation and that initial spooky basement experience really left me biting my nails and wondering what just happened This time around though, Camelia is without the most crucial person to help her stay safe, and that of course, is Ben What will she do now that she doesn t have Ben to support her and sense when she s in danger The romantic tension between Camelia and Ben, two people so obviously still in love with one another was agonizing I kept flipping the pages, anxiously hoping they would resolve their issues Their scenes together were a roller coaster of emotions, further compounded by Camelia s budding relationship with Adam, the new guy at Knead Speaking of Adam, you never quite trust Camelia s attraction him He appears out of the blue, saying and doing all the right things Yet isn t that just so convenient Other times, I d switch my line of thinking and want her to give him a chance By the end, I was so turned around I didn t quite know what to think of anyone, including Ben and even Camelia s best friends Wes and Kimmy No one was free from suspicion or ever completely trustworthy And of course, there s always that underlying worry that Matt was back in town too And if your read the first book, you know that would NOT be a good thing In regards to the harassing calls and messages that begin resurfacing around Camelia, at times I felt incredibly agitated with her for not going to her parents, and wanted to yell at her for not being aggressive about her safety Haven t we been through this before Camelia But, with that being said, I do want to point out that Stolarz does a great job in painting a believable picture as to why Camelia wouldn t immediately run to her parents for help Because of the careful plot building and narrative, it made me able to accept Camelia s actions even though I didn t necessarily agree with them as an outsider looking in.Time and time again, I d try and fall asleep while reading this novel, but found myself getting up to check the door locks and make sure I had the house alarm on Just like when I read Deadly Little Secret, I was almost dizzy from wondering and worrying who could be trusted in Camelia s world And that is the best thing about Laurie Faria Stolarz s writing She knows how to captivate the reader inserting a bit of romance here, some eerie voices there, secrets untold, threatening antics and creepy diary entries All of these devices are perfectly blended to create an intense air of mystery and keep your pulse pounding Several times, I tried to go to sleep but kept thinking about Camelia Who was stalking her again Who was getting into her room What about the new guy Adam But most importantly, what was going on with those creepy, whispered voices I have to say that it was the voices which spooked me the most and left me unable to fall asleep, listening to the house creak and settle into the very late hours of the night.Wait did you hear that What was that

    Since this is my second time reading one of Stolarz s books, I was pretty acquainted with her type of writing Yet, she continues to amaze me with her use of adjectives and creative writing style descriptive, but not too detailed The tale was alluring I couldn t get enough.The writing was unbelievable as was the plot line Stolarz adds her own special touch to the often used love triangle, throwing secretive pasts and mysterious lies into play I was captivated throughout The characters were prominently unique and stayed true to themselves, which is always important to the story The plot itself was spectacular and moved along quite quickly After reading one page, I couldn t get to the next one fast enough It was purely stunning I enjoyed every minute of reading this book.However, the most attracting addition to the novel, for me, was the romance I loved the romance Camelia s ever changing emotion toward Ben was riveting to read about In this book, their relationship could easily be compared to a rollercoaster One minute, they re cherishing what is supposed to be their last moments together and the next, they re giving in, cracking under the pressure of their hardly ignorable love It nearly drove me insane And when Camelia finally let Ben go and moved on to another guy, Adam, she began to have this feeling in her gut that told her that there might be something he s keeping from her This problematic triangle sure was a nail biter, and I loved it.A breath taking book filled with suspenseful whispers, romantic confusion, and lingering touch Deadly Little Lies is simply stunning I m anxiously awaiting the next in the Touch series.Ratings Writing 5 5Plot 5 5Characters 5 5Cover 5 5Overall 5 5

    I actually liked this one a lot than the first one True that this series is a lot like the Twilight series But the Twilight series didn t have the whole stalker thing For some reason, I like the stalker thing Unlike last time, I totally didn t know that it was blankity blank who was the stalker Surprise, surprise, surpriseI still kind of hate Camelia because she never learns from her mistakes the first time Oh, she s an idiot But at least, she s an okay narrator I think I like this book a lot because Wes and Kimmie happen to be interesting characters They actually don t seem that cliche well maybe Kimmie , but I credit the author for that anyway I also loved learning about what Camelia could do and about her aunt s past Pretty good So 4.5 stars or just 4 But the book did have its mistakes no doubt Once, Camelia said that the first time she kissed Ben was in the pottery studio, Knead Noooo, Camelia, you kissed him while having a picnic with him on your first date Doi.

    Argh why do I continue to read this series The first book was just meh Now, the second in the series.just made me feel as if I were reading the first book all over again Literally another stalker, distant parents, harmful pranks, etc I guess I expected since Stolarz has written and sold so many books But then again, lots of people go to McDonald s so there is no accounting for taste, right Ah well I m a sucker for knowing how things end, so chances are I will continue with this series but it is due to my personal issues, rather than Stolarz writing ability.

    Deadly Little Lies was even better than Deadly Little Secret And it strayed a lot from the whole Twilight feel Which I greatly appreciated I was a little scared at first after reading the back page of this book and the districption that it gave that it was going to continue following in the whole Twilight feel and read a lot like its sequel New Moon After Ben left at the end of Deadly Little Secret Camelia is heart broken and doesnt know what to do with herself It is at this point that she also discovers that she herself has inherited psychometric powers While she sculpts her clay, her works of art turn into images of the future Starting off with a sculpture of Ben s scar followed by his eye, which are only a few of the things that she sculpts in this book that turn out to be warnings of things to come This book takes place four months after Deadly Little Secret School has just started again after break and Camelia, Kimmie and Wes are getting back onto their regular schedule Camelia is being closely watched by her parents after the incident with Matt and Ben saved her Kimmie s situation at home is getting even worse and her parents are fighting even Wes has hired himself a college girl to posse as his girlfriend to try and get his father off of his back about his non to stellar manly skills And Debbie the girl that got hit by the car and was in acoma in Deadly Little Secret still blames Ben for her accident even though he was proven guiltless Ben comes back, back after Camelia s initial excitement to see him, he pushes her away and forcefully and quit meanily if you ask me tells her that he does not want to work on their relationship and feels that it would be best if they just remained friends However, this does not quit work out the first time and a few of these senses go on where he tries to tell her that they need to remain just friends After a cute and sweet scene where they talk and Ben ends up spending the night at her house, cuddling her all night while she sleeps, it finally sticks and a distance starts to come between then This distance is introduced as Adam, Camelia s new co worker at Knead At a rough first meeting between Camelia and Adam, a slow friendship is born between them And as Camelia tries to give Ben the distance and space that he has asked of her, Camelia in a ways turns to Adam In Camelia s heart, even though she is still obviously in love with Ben, she see s Adam as a good friend and it slows turns into after Adam asks her out on a date A few dates and one chaste kiss later, Camelia and Adam are together in a manner of speaking and you are left with one jealous Ben A jealous Ben Yes, even though he so rudely ask s Camelia for the space and insists that they can not be together, he is non the less jealous to see her move on However, Camelia starts to get weird mail send to her at home again First a picture of Julie Ben s ex girlfriend who ended up dying on that fatefull hike and a picture of her shrine onto the mountain are just a few of the things that she gets from her mysterious new stalker Not to be out done by Matt, Camelia s new stalker also leaves her deadly messages on her bulkhead as well as calls her to make sure she got the message, You are Dead Near the end of the book You find out that Ben and Adam have a past together And Adam was originally using Camelia only to get back at Ben Once this truth comes out, Camelia immediately excludes Adam from her life, even though he confesses and tells her the truth and that in the end he did have genuine feelings for her and ended up falling for her Camelia s new stalker makes her move after her parents leaves to Detroit to talk with crazy Aunt Alexia and her psychitrist And once again, Ben ends up saving her life After that, Ben and Camelia work out their relationship and they finally end up together in the end After two books of denial in a way their relationship finally comes out completely public Which in a way is a heartbreak to Camelia s father, who really liked Adam You will see.

    Deadly Little Lies picks up straight where Secret left off Camelia is struggling to deal with her abduction the previous summer and having Ben leave town Her family life is still not back to normal, and the unresolved issues between her mother and aunt Alexia simmer in this installment of the Touch Series Ben s return to town makes Cameila feel like a boat lost at sea he doesn t seem to want to have anything to do with Camelia and is cold and distant Camelia attempts to move on with her new work friend, Adam, but the relationship is a battle with the feelings she still has towards Ben and the fact the he seems jealous at this turn of events Even strange is the voices Camelia is hearing and the premoitions she has in the form of her pottery work Desperate to try and piece her life back together, Cameila is faced with a painful memories of her past the notes and threatening phone calls have started again I was a little wary to read this installment, because I didn t enjoy the first installment as much as I had hoped However, I think I preferred this novel due to the well paced story line which flowed a lot easier There was a lot emotion instilled into the story, which meant Camelia seemed to have depth, and I seemed to undertand her attraction to Ben, which wasn t there for me in the first book The stalker aspect of the story was handled effectively and than a little creepy However, Stolarz didn t do justice to her writing skills Too many clues were left behind and I had figured out the culprict before Camelia, which diminished the scary side for me, that was pronounced at the beginning of the book.As a lover of urban fantasy, I would have loved Camelia to explore her pshyic powers a little , push the boundries Maybe this will be explored in the third book, which is due to be published late 2010 Also, the minor characters in the form of Kimmie and Wes, seemed to have little interection and seemed to serve no other purpose other than lighten the mood Kimmie s family does get light shone on them, and we can learn through Camelia s observations the break down of a family and how it affects Kimmie, which was a nice touch I do hope they both get a little bit time in the third book The ending for me was exactly how I wanted it to end and set the bar up for Deadly Little Games, which I am looking forward to reading I am pleased that I stuck with this series and it seems to be paying off, and if the improvements continue, I think the last book in the series will be fantastic I look forward to reading it.
