Review: I had mixed feelings about this book. I liked the premise of the story and liked the idea of Violet searching for a killer, but it didn't live up to my expectations. First of all, I felt like too much of the book was taken up by the romance aspect of it. It felt like it could have been any teen romance novel at some points. The romance and finding the killer seemed like two totally different story lines instead of fitting together like they should have. I also wasn't sucked into the storyline as much as I would have liked.
On the other hand, I did really like the characters, especially Violet. She was a strong and determined character and yet was still relatable and fun even despite her ability. Her friends were also really funny. I liked Jay but he kind of bugged me throughout some parts of the book and he seemed kind of annoying. overall, though the characters were all really great.
Despite, my problems with it I am still interested to see where the sequel takes the characters and how the story will develop ,it could go anywhere. Anyone who thinks this books sounds interesting should still review it. This is just my opinion and I have heard a lot of good things about it from other readers. I will definitely be getting the sequel when it comes out to see where these characters go next. This book wasn't one of my favorites but it was still pretty enjoyable.
