    New Year, New Problems

    Coming back to Eli University after an awesome intern over the summer, all Amy Haskel, AKA Bugaboo, wants is to have a quiet year after the debacle the patriarchs gave the Rose and Grave socitey for initiating females. At first, all looks good...until a mysterious e-mail just scratches the surface at the trouble to come. Suddenly, Amy and her "brothers" find themselves with a traitor in their midst. The crimes against the society threaten to break this group, but will Amy be able to put her brains to good use to help the crew or will she have to watch the secret society she holds dearly drown under a number of threats?

    Peterfreund has been able to keep the magic of the first novel alive in this thrilling sequel. "Under the Rose" is a powerful novel about the life of one secret society member. Said member, Amy, is a witty character whose troubles both with the society and in her personal life bring out her inner strength. She may not always have the answer or be the smartest, but her conspiracy theorys, previous learned knowledge, and determination make her a loving character.

    The writing of the novel is beautifully written and keeps true to the setting. There is a richness found in the dialogue which will make a reader believe that these people may actually exist out there in the world. To bring this all together the plot is captivating and will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

    Peterfreund has written a book that is impossible to put down and will want you reading the next novel in a heartbeat.

    more society secrets

    Senior year isn't going quite as Amy Haskel would have liked. Sure, she's at prestigious Ivy League Eli University and she's also a member of that oh-so exclusive secret society the Rose & Grave, but Amy is quickly finding out balancing classes, a senior thesis, and society business is not all it's cracked up to be. Once again, the R&G seems to be falling apart as the current members receive vague warnings threatening that the society is rotting out from the inside out. What's more, a traitor, who is slowly spilling society secrets, is on the loose and has everyone up in arms and once again convinced that admitting girls to the R&G was the worst idea EVER. Amy doesn't know which of her brothers has leaked the information but she isn't about to trust any of them on her quest for the truth - hoping that it doesn't destroy the Rose & Grave along the way. Just once, Amy would like to enjoy being a part of her society without all the worry and fear.

    The second installment of Peterfreund's tell-all novels plunges us right back into the world of Amy's not-so-ordinary college experience. Standing out in this series is Amy with her blinding intelligence and loyalty, she is instantly likable and an unforgettable narrator. She is neurotic and doesn't always understand her worth, but she ALWAYS gets the job done. What's not to love? At times, I felt the drama and society debates dragged on a bit and rehashed the same topic over and over but there was always some witty dialogue or snarky remark that would bring a smile back to my face. A fun, summer read that hopefully continues to be just as enjoyable.
