Well, here it first review in quite awhile. I really hate eats your time. I may try to start review books at school during study hall.
Title: Kiss Me, Kill Me

Author: Lauren Henderson

Summary: When 16-year-old Scarlett Wakefield transfers from St. Tabby’s to Wakefield Hall Collegiate, she is relieved that no one knows her dark, haunting secret. A few months ago, Scarlett was invited to an elite party with a guest list full of the hottest names in British society, including Dan McAndrew. Before the party, Scarlett had only imagined what it would be like to have her first kiss with Dan, but on the penthouse terrace, Dan leaned in close and she no longer had to wonder. Their kiss was beautiful and perfect and magical, and then . . . Dan McAndrew took his last breath as she held him in her arms. No one knows how or why Dan died, and everyone at St. Tabby’s believes Scarlett had something to do with it. But now that she’s safely hidden away at Wakefield Hall, Scarlett would rather forget that it ever happened. Only she can’t. Especially when she receives an anonymous note that will set her on the path to clearing her name and finding out what really happened to the first and last boy she kissed.

My Review: I really liked this book. Partly because it's a mystery and partly because it's British. I have a huge thing for England. Most of it's because I'm like 65% English, but really I just love their culture, not to mention the accent. It started out with Scarlett being a normal teen doing normal things, but after a change in events it gets exciting...more fast pace. My only real complaint is that the end really wasn't an end. This is a series though so every thing that should be there will probably be in the next one, you know what I mean? But it's a kind of cliff hanger and I love those series endings. They drive me insane, but they're intriguing. It kept me turning the pages. The author is also very good at describing Scarlett's grief, I felt her pain as if it was my wn. I've reccommended this book to at least 3 people at school... they all got hooked by just reading the back cover and I'm sure you will too.

On to my next review. Sorry I'm so backed up!!

I love English mysteries, too. I'm going to put this on my short list of books to read.
