While reading this book I felt as if I was with the characters every step of the way. In the novel, I tried to figure out the mystery before the characters thus it was interesting to see whether I was right or wrong about the ending. The novel is a mix between realistic fiction, mystery, and romance. The book was also intriguing because I was able to see both the protagonist and the antagonist’s point of view which gave clues as to who the mystery stalker is. Usually I do not prefer to read long books unless they are very interesting and Deadly Little Secret was a winner. I was hooked into the story until the very end so finished it earlier than I expected. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series.
