    Withersin Publications gives "Desiree" 5 Stars

    I find that being ugly is great protection from killer hot chicks.
     
    Desirée Chappelle has a problem: every time she kisses someone they commit suicide. Compounding this problem is the fact that she is overwhelmingly attractive and irresistible. She crosses paths with Tamara Drenoff throughout her life leaving dead brothers, friends, and lovers in her wake. Tamara doesn't know how the deaths happen but she knows that they are all related to Desirée. After her life falls apart on one long, terrible day she decides she'll stop Desirée. She doesn't have to kill her; Tamara just has to make her undesirable.
     
    This short book just enwraps you from the start. It is a wonderful and engaging story that is fun to drink down in one big gulp. The non-linear timeline helped raise the tension and kept me reading. There were a few clunking bits of dialogue here and there but nothing that really upset the flow of the book. It is an interesting turn to have a young person ostracized for their good looks, though not directly, versus some other failing that plagues us as we grow.
     
    Read it, it is good for you: 5 out of 5
