Death Wish

3 Stars/5

Thanks to Megan Tayte for giving me this book to review.

17 year old Scarlett Blake is haunted by the death of her party girl sister, Sienna. Determined to discover why she committed suicide, she stays in the isolated English cove of Twycombe, where she meets 2 men who want to help her Luke and Jude but she is unsure why. As she discovers more about her sister’s death she notices strange things start happening around her. With summer drawing to a close will Scarlett discover the truth?

Death Wish is an enjoyable YA paranormal romance novel. It has twists, romance and a touch of mystery. It is also fast paced but is also predictable. I would have preferred the paranormal element in this book to be introduced earlier as for most of the novel it came across as a contemporary book.

Scarlett is not in a good place at the start of the book but as the story progressed she became more confident and was a more interesting character. I like Luke as he is caring and protective, but not in a creepy way, and I also liked his sister Cara. Jude was a mysterious person and for most of the book I could not figure him out. I was glad that there was not a love triangle in this book but it is hinted at and I hope it does not happen in the next book.

I really liked this book and look forward to reading the next one Forget Me Not. I would recommend this book to fans of YA paranormal romance books.
