Book Review: Underdead In Denial
Today's review is on Underdead in Denial by Liz Jasper
Underdead in Denial is the second installment in Jasper's Underdead series and is just as quirky and comical as the debut book. Packed full of murder and mystery Underdead in Denial will keep you guessing "who done it?" Even I was second guessing.
Jo Gartner hasn't seen Will in months and has been getting on with her underdead life as best she can. After all, it's not easy being "allergic" to the sun, having cravings for exceptionally rare meat, and teaching eighth-grade science. Everything is as good as it can be. That is until Will shows up on her doorstep.
Everything goes from bad to worse when someone turns up dead at the Halloween Haunted House event that Jo and Becky volunteer at. As in the first book, Jo can't help but to do some of her own sleuthing to find out the truth.
With Will continuing to swoon her and Gavin giving her the cold shoulder Jo doesn't know what to do or where to turn. Especially when she becomes the next victim on the murders list.
I really enjoyed reading the Underdead series so far. The story lines are well thought out and flow almost flawlessly from page one straight through to the last page. (In fact, I found just 5 errors in the entire book.) My only complaint is that by now I would have liked to see more happening between Jo and Gavin. It is obvious there is a love triangle between the two and Will, but all we really get is the push-pull of Jo and Will. Yes we all love a good murder mystery, but we also LOVE the love triangle.
A nice one day read. I'm looking forward to the next installment in the Underdead series and you should too.
