Summary:
Hartley Grace Featherstone is having a very bad day. First she finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her with the president of the Herbert Hoover High School Chastity Club. Then he's pegged as the #1 suspect in a murder. And if that weren't enough, now he's depending on Hartley to clear his name. Seriously? Not cool. 
But as much as Hartley wouldn't mind seeing him squirm, she knows he's innocent, and she's the only one who can help him. Along with her best friend, Sam, and the school's resident Bad Boy, Chase, Hartley starts investigating on her own. But as the dead bodies begin to pile up, the mystery deepens, the suspects multiply, and Hartley begins to fear that she may be the killer's next victim.

Review:


Phenomenal! Yes, I used the world phenomenal to describe this book because it really is.Deadly cool takes you on a thrilling mystery through out the pages. You are left guessing who did it and honestly I did NOT see the ending coming.It was the last person I would have expected to do that.Maybe it was just me who was thrown off,but I really didn't guess this person. Than again, you know what they say the one you least expect is the one who always does it.

Now on to Harley,first of all what a cool name. (Hartly Grace Featherstone)Now second,(After all that randomness)she was being exactly what she thought she was being a "Nancy Drew" but it's ok because I liked it;She was on a misson to solve this case and lettme tell you see cracked it wide open taking a lot of risk and going to extreme measures to see that her ex-boyfriend, Josh was innocent.There were moments when she was unsure of her feelings for Josh and I'm glad she stayed strong because Josh was a jerk. I mean he cheated on her and than she's trying to help him and he's being a jerk.She pushed through it though because she knew the real killer was still out there and if she didn't stop this person who will.Getting off of Josh,I really liked Chase.Chase is a mysterious,bad boy who is also a writer, who wouldn't like him.Oh, and did I forget to mention he's supposed to be hot.
There was some romance,but nothing serious the book stayed on the topic of finding the killer and I loved it.

It had that dash of romance and even some laughter to make it perfect.
Overall loved this book! Gemma did an amazing job on explaning characters,and the scene it had me wanting to read more and guessing until the last page.You can deffintley count me in for the next thrilling mystery of this series!Can't wait to see somemore Chase,Hartley, and we can't leave out sam.

Series: The Morganville Vampires 
Pages: 241
Publisher: Signet 
Release Date: June 2nd, 2009

Summary:
In the small college town of Morganville, vampires and humans lived in (relative) peace-until all the rules got rewritten when the evil vampire Bishop arrived, looking for the lost book of vampire secrets. He's kept a death grip on the town ever since. Now an underground resistance is brewing, and in order to contain it, Bishop must go to even greater lengths. He vows to obliterate the town and all its inhabitants-the living and the undead. Claire Danvers and her friends are the only ones who stand in his way. But even if they defeat Bishop, will the vampires ever be content to go back to the old rules, after having such a taste of power?

Review:
So, I have been reading this series on and off since summer, but I found myself way to lazy
to do a review. Which I get upset about sometimes, but I'm going to put the pedal to the metal and finally do one on one book of this series. It just so happens to be this one since i've read it quite recently;Meaning yesterday.

Not going to lie I was a bit confused when I starting reading since I completely forgot what happened in the last book due to reading a  lot of other books since the fifth one in the series.I didn't start to remember until about 40 pages in, but once I did let me tell ya I was supper excited in what was going to happen next and raced through this book less than a day.I found myself asking questions while reading, I was wonderstruck no other word to explain it. Which made the sweet moments in this book the best it could have been. Than, there was the a part, well a couple actually in this book that were so long anticipated that i was thinking awe or wow holly crap. The plot was well written and suspenseful as the plans started to fall into place,as friendships and relationships were tested and loyalties were put to the test it came down to how far you would go and what you would do to 
to save not only your life , but friends and family and the innocent people of Morganville if after all you were only just turning 17. 

Welcome to this intriguing thriller of a paranormal  town called Morganville.Were no Morganville native dares to come outside past sunset after all  the dark and dangerous things come out in Morganville at night.
If you have yet to read this book you should probably check it out. Well, go on and check it out so you to can enter into the exciting world of Morganville. There's no place like here.
