With Dan McAndrews's murder finally behind her, Scarlett has high hopes for a fresh start at Wakefield Hall Collegiate, the elite English boarding school her grandmother runs. Unfortunately, those hopes are dashed when her nemesis, the infamous Plum Saybourne, is transferred to the school. Plum wastes no time turning Scarlett’s impressionable classmates against her.

Scarlett has dealt with Plum’s nasty schemes before, and she can handle her archenemy very nicely, thank you—until Plum sets her sights on Scarlett’s best friend, Taylor, and new boyfriend, Jase. Then Scarlett is more than willing to fight for what’s rightfully hers.

Things only get worse after Scarlett becomes entangled in a mysterious death on campus. Scarlett is compelled to investigate because she wants to protect someone close to her. She never imagines that she’ll uncover secrets related to her parents’ fatal accident so many years ago. . . .


  1. These books look so great! I love the look of Kiss in the Dark :)

  2. WOW these both look beautiful - I love both the covers and the synopsis sound wonderful!

  3. Wow. Both sound deep and have lovely covers.

  4. Great picks! I hadn't heard of the first one, but the bombing definitely sounds intense. And, hm, I don't like Lauren Henderson's series that much, but I have to admit the cover is gorgeous! :D

  5. Both have stunning cover. OMG, I love covers! Is Kiss in the Dark one of "Kiss Me Kill Me" sequels? Hm. I'm pretty wanting to read this one :)
