Book Review: Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Stolarz

Last fall, sixteen-year-old Camelia fell for Ben, a new boy at school who had a very mysterious gift – psychometry, 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 strange brushes with premonition. Camelia wonders if Ben's abilities have somehow been transferred to her.

Ben returns to school, but he remains aloof, and Camelia can't get close enough to share her secret with him. Camelia makes the painful decision to let him go and move on. Adam, the hot new guy at Knead, seems good for her in ways Ben wasn't. But when Camelia and Adam start dating, a surprising love triangle results. A chilling sequence of events uncovers 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.

This book was alright. I had some issues with it like reoccurrence of the threatening phone calls and notes. It was a bit overused especially since it occurred in the previous book. The romance aspect was lacking I felt like Ben was giving mixed messages to Camelia which got to be a bit annoying. What I did like about the book was Wes and Kimmie’s presence. There interaction which each other was always had humor to it. I’m not giving up on the series just yet. I hope the next book Deadly Little Games has much more interesting plot then this book's plot.


  1. I just finished the first book in this series and I thought it was alright. I'm not sure if I'll read this one or not yet.

  2. I read the first one and it was just okay. I'll problably still read this one, but it isn't a priority for me.

  3. I've been meaning to read this but my TBR pile is gigantic.
    But why?-- beautiful line of YA fantasy books.
