Book Review: Beautiful Demons

Today's review is on Beautiful Demons, the Peachville High Demons series by Sarra Cannon

Looking for something a little different to read, I came across a review for Beautiful Demons.  Not ever have been a cheerleader myself, the opening line of the book's description pulled me in instantly.

    In Peachville, even the cheerleaders have a dark side...

And here I thought only the cheerleaders of my high school had a dark side.

Harper Madison has been tossed from foster home to foster home only to wind up at Shadowford in the small town of Peachville.  Trouble has seemed to have been following her like a shadow since the fire when she was just eight years old.  Shadowford Home is her very last chance.  If she screws this up it's off to juvenile hall for her.

Suddenly, one of the local cheerleaders is found murdered and everything begins changing for Harper.  Though the popular, beautiful, cheerleaders ignored her previously, now they seem to be throwing themselves at her wanting to be friends.  They encourage her to try out for cheerleading, and she makes the squad herself.  Everything looks like it's going her way.  She is dating the star quarterback, and she finally feels happy.  But then there's Jackson.  She feel's she knows hims somehow, but can't remember how or why.

Pachville it seems has a secret, and Harper is intent to find out what it is.

What I loved most about this book was that the reader doesn't find the truth until almost the ending.  As you read, you have some idea of what "it" may be, but nothing concrete.  This makes for continued suspense through out the book. 

The Peachville High Demons series promises to be a captivating one.

3.5 of 5 stars
