Julia is a sixteen-year-old girl that never fits in, maybe because she’s lived in so many different places for such short periods of time. Back in New Orleans she’s determined to find out what happened to her missing cousin, Aubree. Distracted by the hottest boy in school, she still finds time to investigate and finds it all revolves around the convent…
This is a ya mystery that has a few twists and a wonderful main character. I instantly liked Julia, from her awkwardness to her never give up attitude. At times, her actions are a bit hard to believe but she has a feistiness to her that I enjoyed. Ryan is harder to pin down. Why is the hottest guy in class talking to her? What are his motives? I didn’t trust him at all and the fact that Julia is falling so quickly for him isn’t my favorite aspect of the story. As the romance moves along so does the mystery, which I love. The author has a great knack for keeping me on the edge of my seat. Tyler, rejected and super adorable, Tyler. There’s sort of a triangle going on here. I did not like that she’s kissing them both without making up her mind. The ending is nicely resolved with twists and even a hint at the next book.
Shadow Lilies is an entertaining ya mystery that you shouldn't miss!

What a unique, cool and terrifying idea. Carlie can look into the eyes of murder victims and see the murderer. So, what’s a strange girl to do? Simple, avoid dead bodies. Problem solved. But a cheerleader is murder and it looks like the killer will go free if Carlie doesn’t use her gift to help. With the help of her boyfriend Dillion, they search and he’s injured. She’s horrified of losing him so she vows never to help again, until the next victim turns out to be her friend.
Love, love, love the plot! It’s a young adult, mystery, paranormal gem. Carlie is a great character. She’s not your average teenager but she sure as hell is trying to be. I like how she feels this sense of right and wrong. As scared as she is, she gathers up enough courage to face this killer with horrible results. As the plot twists and turns the danger gets more intense. This is definitely an edge of your seat story. I could not stop reading. The romance between Dillion and Carlie is adorable! It’s flirty but doesn’t jump into the inappropriate column like many YA novels these days. I fell in love with these characters so when the ending came it is both amazing and bittersweet. I didn’t want this story to end. This is my first book by this author and sure as hell, not my last!
See is a must read, edge of your seat book!
