I have been recommending this series since I first discovered it and the latest installment is a wonderful addition. I just don't know why it took me so long to read it. It was the first book I bought for my new e reader. Each book has Daisy solving a crime with her psychic powers, although her powers didn't really evolve until the second book in the series, Dead is a State of Mind. You can easily read this one without having read any of them, but I think it adds to them by reading them in order. Daisy is the youngest of the Giordano sisters and each are paranormally gifted. Daisy's psychic and kinetic abilities are just now really beginning to develop and she makes full use of her limited powers in solving a blackmail mystery that has visited the town of Nightshade, CA. Daisy's father has recently returned to the family after being held by the Scourge, an anti-paranormal group. Her father is still recovering from the effects of his capture and he reacts to Daisy as if she is still twelve, her age when he disappeared. He disapproves of her were boyfriend, Ryan, who is also the chief of police's son. Daisy wins cooking lessons with a famous television chef, Circe, who adds more than just ingredients to her famous food. Part of the story deals with the famous Jukebox, Lil, at Slim's Diner which plays songs to communicate with Daisy which leads to what will happen in the next installment, Dead is Not an Option, or at least I hope! Daisy helps unravel the blackmail mystery and maintains her loving relationship with her parents. There is only some kissing and nothing else much to worry parents. I highly recommend this to everyone since it is such an enjoyable series that will appeal to even the pickiest of readers.

Dead is just a Rumor was an alright book to read for this six weeks. I’m not really one to read a lot of book but this book was enjoyable. It was hard to follow at the beginning, but then reading throughout the book was a little more interesting and exciting to read. This book starts out with a rumor about Daisy and Ryan who are going to be shoo-ins for king and queen at the midnight ball. Daisy is very good friends with Samantha Devereaux who had been working really hard on the midnight ball. Samantha and Daisy have been having problems in their junior year at shade high school. Daisy was tired of winning queen at every event, so she wants her good friend Samantha to win this year for her hard work. I would have enjoyed this book a little more if there was more mystery in the story. Other than this small difficulty it was a great book. The thrill of each page left me wanting to read more and more. In conclusion, this book was very interesting to read for this six week. Having read this book has taught me to not believe every rumor that is told. I am not one to want to read but this book really caught my eye. Wanting to know the investigation for Samantha kept me wanting to know more. Also Daisy’s father being over protective and watching her every move while daisy trying to kept a secret. All in all, for a fourteen year old girl it was very entertaining, but was hard to keep up with at the same time. This book has taught me to not believe every rumor. This book was very enetertaing and was breath taking at the same time. I would tell young girls my age if they enjoyed dramatic and romatic book that Dead is just a Rumor is a great book for them.

This is a great, light-hearted and fast-paced YA series of books! It is a YA book so you have young dating drama which appeals to that audience. The quirky, enjoyable blend of paranormal, romance, mystery, and light-hearted life experiences is engaging. The main character, Daisy is likable, sassy, and relate-able. I think the characters are well developed and likable.
