Thanks so much for your editorial guidance, your contagious enthusiasm, and for always knowing just the right questions to ask.
You helped make me a better writer. A special thanks to my editor Christian Trimmer. Your careful eye, critical suggestions, and keen sense of story have helped make my work stronger. Thanks to my agent Kathryn Green for her invaluable advice and guidance, and to all the friends and family members who have supported me, offered to read my pages-in-progress, and pitched in to give me time to write you know who you are. And lastly, a great big thank-you goes to my readers for their continuous support, boundless enthusiasm, and amazing generosity.
The way his top lip is slightly fuller than the bottom. The chapped skin on his lower lip. My fingers completely saturated with clay, I continue to sculpt the image, remembering that night in front of my house, when I just knew he wanted to kiss me.
Reaching to take my hand, Adam leaned in. My blood stirred, and my heart started pounding. I looked away, and his kiss barely grazed my cheek. I open my eyes a couple of minutes later.
My sculpture looks eerily real. I touch the chalky surface of the lips, almost able to feel his breath between my fingertips. Mazur announces, alerting us to the end of pottery class. I clear my throat and sit back on my stool, wondering if the heat I feel is visible on my face. I glance around at the other students working away on their sculptures and suddenly feel self-conscious. I close my eyes again. I try to imagine what he would say if he knew what I was doing.
Would he suspect that I was interested in him? Would he think it was weird that I remembered so much detail about that moment? Would he tell Ben what I was up to? I take a deep breath and try my best to focus on the answers.
You just told me that I deserve to be maggot feed. Her pale blue eyes, outlined with thick black rings of eye pencil, widen in disbelief.
Mazur, sitting at her desk at the front of the room. Just daydreaming, I guess.
Especially since the words remain pressed behind my eyes, like a flashing neon sign that makes my head ache. The question is, will that burger come with a pickle on the side or between the buns? 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 wer Since this is my second time reading one of Stolarz's books, I was pretty acquainted with her type of writing.
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. 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. Jul 12, Jennifer Wardrip rated it it was amazing Shelves: Since then, Camelia has been researching psychometry, the mysterious gift that Ben has. Camelia is sure that she has this power as well, like it rubbed off on her somehow.
Then Ben comes back to school. He keeps his distance, but then breaks it, confusing Camelia. He wanted space, so Camelia decides to finally give up and move on. She meets Adam at Knead. He seems to care about her, but he isn't Ben. Camelia is also starting to get more weird photos and letters.
She is even hearing things - warnings. Someone is lying to her.
But who? Stolarz's writing is brilliant. I love it, and it is so easy to read, and keep reading, until you're done with the whole novel. The characters are so lovable.
I found myself rooting for Camelia and Ben the whole time. The "love triangle" is a great addition to the novel, because it really puts a strain on Camelia's and Ben's relationship, or lack thereof. And there being another stalker, or weirdo, in her town is crazy. I have yet to find a book by this author that I do not like. Jul 29, Picture Perfect rated it really liked it Shelves: I actually liked this one a lot more 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, surprise I 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 th I actually liked this one a lot more than the first one. I think I like this book a lot more 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. 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. Dec 16, Megan rated it it was ok Shelves: The first book was just "meh" Now, the second in the series I guess I expected more since Stolarz has written and sold so many books.
But then again, lots of people go to McDonald's Ah well I'm a sucker for knowing how things end, so chances are I will continue w Argh May 19, Cassie rated it it was amazing Shelves: And it strayed a lot more 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 more. 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 more 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.
Nov 22, Carla rated it liked it. 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 Deadly Little Lies picks up straight where Secret left off. 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 more 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 more due to the well paced story line which flowed a lot easier.
There was a lot more emotion instilled into the story, which meant Camelia seemed to have more 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 more 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 more 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 more, push the boundries. Maybe this will be explored more in the third book, which is due to be published late 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 more 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 more 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. Find this review, plus more, on my blog: Want to finish series. Triangle, obsession Cliff Hanger: Nah Triggers: Suicidal thoughts.
Nice re read. Worst Part: Horrible en Find this review, plus more, on my blog: Horrible ending. Thoughts Had: There has to be more to it!!!! Conclusion Continuing the Series: Yes Recommending: Eh Short Review: I still liked the story, but a second read pointed out how slow this story is, there is plot movement, but it takes forever to happen. Then you have Alexia and she is barely given a part in the story, but yet you included her letters, leading you to believe it should be more focused on her, but it isn't.
The MC is obsessed with Ben, so bad, i didn't see it the first time, but now that i have read some pretty bad books, it jumps out at me more, and i couldn't see past it. Also the whole Debra bit, the "ending" of that was the lamest thing i have ever read, it was just sad.
Book Boyfriend: Best Friend Material: Review in GIF Form: More of my reviews at http: I really enjoyed the suspense and the crazy mystery of Deadly Little Secret. I expected the same from this book. Although the first book seemed like a stand-alone, theres a whole long series surrounding this premise.
I was hoping this book would surprising just like the first, but this book kind of took a different route. It did have th More of my reviews at http: It did have the same creepy feel to it, which I totally enjoyed.
I was home alone one day reading this book and thought I was being watched. Yeah tip of advice don't read this alone or at night. The plot was intriguing until the end when this train took a turn into crazy plot town.
I can only hope that the next book recaptures the essense of th first. The characters were pretty good. Camelia should learn by now to just speak up, but I still liked her character. She made sense and I agred with her point of view most of the time.
Her friends were hilarious and pretty great in this book, but I did have some problems with Kimmie.
Sometimes Kimmie seemed like she did not care about Camelia, which irked me. Ben was pretty good. I didn't mind him. Adam though I just wonder why that one thing had to happen. Some plot "twists" made this book unbelievable and bordered on ridiculous. The ending was so ridiculous. I feel like it could have been more reasonable. The stalked wasn't even a logical one. Like I understood why that person would d it, but it was so stupid!
The first book was surprising and mysterious, this ending made this book into a beginning grade-school Nancy Drew book. I really hope the next book is more intense. My Favorite Part: Probably how the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat. Do I recommend this book? I just hope the next book is a little more practical. Will I be reading the next book? I think so. Dec 14, Nicole added it.
This book definitely had me spooked, especially since I would read it at night alone in my apartment. Once again, Camelia is being stalked. There are eerie messages and phone calls to leave the reader guessing as to the culprit's identity. And there are some really good twists--such as the journal entries we get. I have to say that the journal entries were one of the most intriguing parts of the story.
They really added to the overall mystery of the book and gets you excited for the next one. So This book definitely had me spooked, especially since I would read it at night alone in my apartment. So, while I thought it was a good read with great writing to keep the reader in suspense, I have my complaints. As the story continues, I increasingly get frustrated with the characters, especially how unopen Ben and Camilla are.
Ben still feels like a mystery, even after two books. I really hope the next book we learn more about him. And you would think Camilla would have matured and learned from the previous book, such as that she shouldn't keep important things from her parents, like people stalking you. The ending was frustrating, for me, too--Camilla makes a mistake of not trusting Ben and she doesn't even apologize for it.
There is no hashing out of their emotions except for them just saying they have to talk, but the book ends before we actually see them solve anything, like their lack of trust in one another.
I just now have higher expectations for the next book to solve these issues. Deadly Little Lies is a suspenseful and thrilling page turner… I love the whole aspect around psychometry in the Touch Series.
