ROSES ARE RED

VIOLETS ARE BLUE

WATCH YOUR BACK

I’M COMING FOR YOU

Lylah and her friends can’t wait to spend a night out together. Partying is the perfect way to let loose from the stress of life and school, and Lylah hopes that hitting the dance floor with Chase, her best friend, will bring them closer together. She’s been crushing on him since they met. If only he thought of her the same way…

The girls are touching up their makeup and the guys are sliding on their coats when the doorbell rings. No one is there. An envelope sits on the doormat. It’s an anonymous note addressed to their friend Sonny. A secret admirer? Maybe. They all laugh it off.

Except Sonny never comes home. And a new note arrives:

YOUR TURN

This is my first book by Natasha Preston but I have a feeling that I will be going to get through her backlist asap I stop drowning in my humungous TBR Pile *face palm*

This plot follows a group of friends, six to be exact – housemates and in university. The book jumps right into action – with the first threatening note arriving in the first chapter itself with the murders imminent – which had me trying to guess the culprit; not that it did me any good!

While the plot in the book was delightful; the suspense had me biting my nails at the twists and turns – but it was the actions of the characters that got on my nerves; AGAIN and AGAIN! I honestly wanted to scream (and I did; internally!) for them to NOT do the exact thing that was going to get them killed; yet they went ahead and did it anyways *face palms* 

ONE, I could understand; TWO was stretching it; but gosh darn it – even knowing that the threat was real, the characters acted cocky, which exasperated me to no end!  

“There is a thin line between bravery and stupid. Stay on the right side people!”

The plot though had me guessing and tbh, not many thrillers are able to do so – and this is the exact reason why it got the rating it did!

READ THIS BOOK JUST FOR THE PLOT PEEPSeverything else pales in front of it; mostly because the ending has my imagination going haywire!!

Smirking over his shoulder as he walks away, Chace asks, “Are you coming or not?”

I grab the photo off the bar and follow him back to our table, where he sets down the tray. I slap the photo next to the drinks.

“That was left behind the bar, along with money for a free round,” I blurt.

Chace might not be worried, but surely one of my friends will make the connection. I can count on Sienna and Charlotte…I think.

“That’s us,” Isaac states.

“Congratulations, Sherlock,” Chace mutters sarcastically.

Sonny picks up his drink and raises it. “Well, thanks to the mystery drink fairy.”

“Why would someone take our photo?” Charlotte asks.

“Exactly!” I exclaim.

“So the bartender would know who to give the drinks to,” Isaac replies with an eyeroll. “Obviously.”

But I’m not buying it. “Why keep it a secret?”

Isaac shrugs. “I don’t know, Lylah. Drink up. The show’s about to start.

I don’t understand why no one is taking this seriously. It doesn’t make sense.

“What’s on the back of the photo?” Sienna asks.

“Huh?” Chace says.

“The edge is peeling.” She picks it up and pulls at the black shiny backing.

What the hell?

When the backing peels off, Sienna looks at the photo, then drops it on the table like it’s burned her. The small black square looks like the note Sonny received earlier with cut-out letters.

TICK TOCK, SONNY
