Dead Is Just A Rumor by Marlene Perez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Daisy and her sisters are back once more in Dead is Just a Rumor. This is the start of Daisy's senior year in high school, but her dad, newly returned from six years in the captivity of the Scourge, still sees Daisy as the twelve-year old girl he was stolen away from six years ago. While trying to understand that he has an adjustment to make, Daisy is frustrated because his restrictions and his obvious dislike of her boyfriend are ruining her senior year. When the paranormal members of the town start getting mysterious letters sealed in red wax blackmailing them, Daisy jumps in to investigate. But how can she investigate when her dad is always hovering over her shoulder.
I love this series and book four was as much of a treat as the rest. Daisy is smart, sassy, and a lot of fun. While the other books allowed Daisy to freely investigate the mysteries around town, Daisy's father coming back into her life made that a challenge for her in this novel. But Daisy doesn't let that stop her as she tries to solve the crimes in Nightshade.
Once more this was a welcome addition to the series, and the characters are all charming. This one leaves you with a small amount of unfinished business so I hope we can see it wrapped up in the next novel.
The audio version of this book is superb. Brilliance audio brings back Suzy Johnson to narrate and she does a great job giving Daisy a voice. This is a fun series to listen to as well as to read.
Overall this series is the perfect series to read in the summer. Fun, light, and entertaining.
