167) Dead Is So Last Year by Marlene Perez

Nightshade is a strange town where odd things happen. However things are a bit weirder than usual when Daisy gets back from a trip to Italy. It seems that everyone in town has a sugar problem. The problem is that they can't get enough of it! However Daisy realises that the people she keeps seeing stuffing themselves with sweets are doppelgängers of the Nightshade residents.

Then the rumours reach Daisy and her sisters Rose and Poppy. Their dad, who disappeared years ago, is back in town. Then there are some werewolf problems. It seems there are some new wolves in town and they have something against Daisy and her sisters. With all the girls busy with their summer jobs it is a miracle they have time to help the football team, solve the werewolf mystery and figure out if their dad really is back or if he is just a fake. With their special abilities and a little help from their friends the girls may just survive another Summer in Nightshade.

I really love this Young Adult series. This third book, which I hope won't be the last, wasn't my favourite but it certainly made for great reading. Daisy is such a nice character and Nightshade is a paranormal hot spot. There is never a dull moment throughout the story and I couldn't put the book down for long before being drawn back to it.

Fun, spooky and mysterious this is a series I can highly recommend. I just hope that Dead is So Last Year isn't the last we will see of the Giardano sisters. Especially with the cliffhanger this book ended with! I will be looking out for more from Marlene Perez!

This sounds different. It sounds like a unique paranormal, a new idea maybe. Great review.
