Book Review: Ghost Flower
AUTHOR: Michele Jaffe
GENRE: Mystery, drama
PREMISE: Eve gets approached by two rich teenagers who tell her she bears a uncanny resemblelance to their disapeared cousin who stands to inherit a fortune. They hatch a plot with her to get that money for themselves but as Even digs into the family history she wonders if the disappearance was really a disappearance...
MY REVIEW: Jaffe is one of those authors who I think is vastly underrated. Her Bad Kitty books are hilarious but also have interesting mysteries and Rosebush is a really interesting character/mystery piece that constantly keeps you guessing.
Ghost Flower is also a interesting mix of mystery/character study that keeps you on your toes till the end. I don't think it's as good as Rosebush but it still has the draw that keeps me coming back for more of Jaffe's writing (but seriously Jaffe, MORE BAD KITTY! I need to know what happened to the mom!). The ending is somewhat chaotic but still it has those twisty mysteries that I've come to expect and love from Jaffe.
WHO SHOULD READ: mystery fans, Pretty Little Liars/The Lying Game fans
MY RATING: Three and a half out of Five heiresses with issues
