Synopsis: Margret Wakefield was there for Dan's last moments before his death.
Not only was she there, she was the last person he kissed. The peanut oil from the puffs she had eaten killed him, and he couldn't find his epi-pen. She was marked as the murderer, and had to trade schools because of all the bullying. She meets a new boy, but is scared to like him. Meanwhile, she needs to solve the mystery of who killed Dan.

She decides to go to his house and meet his family to find out more information.
As she gets there, things become dangerous, revealing that the killer might even be one of his close family members of friends.
Her life may be in Danger too, but she needs to solve this mystery of who killed Dan. Review: I really liked this book, it was well plotted and really well organized. I would've never expected the ending. It had a lot of twists and turns and left me hanging.

I want the third one now but have zero clue where I could get it without spending money as right now I have too many big kid things to worry about. This book solved the mystery surrounding Dan McAndrew and brings Scarlett immense relief, but it also brings another mystery, another problem.
As you read on, the writing gets loads better and I found myself growing attac W o W.

As you read on, the writing gets loads better and I found myself growing attached to the characters in the book. The more I read, the more I adore.
I like that the romance grows at a slow pace, the plot develops, and the heroine is a likable girl who isn't going to let anything limit her from doing what she wants. Jun 08, Brittany rated it it was ok. Umm this book was kind of ridiculous.
I enjoyed the first one and the way it ended really gave me high hopes for this next one but I was disappointed. There just seemed to be a lot of filler in this book and nothing really happened. I feel like Henderson just sort of threw this bo Umm this book was kind of ridiculous. I feel like Henderson just sort of threw this book together for the sake of writing a sequel. I do think the addition of Plum at Wakefield can make for an interesting third book but we shall see. Aug 16, Hazel Rose rated it it was amazing.
I recommend this book because it's a mysterious book. There are a lot of hints to solve the mystery which make the book really interesting. I would love to read more book that the author wrote that is really similar to this book. Jun 06, Tuffy rated it really liked it. I enjoyed the book. I liked it. I liked the part where Scarlett went to the castle.

The way Mr. McAndrew described it made me in awe. Like I know there are still castles existing but never thought there are still castles where they preserved the original architecture like where the crossbows position themselves, where the I enjoyed the book. Like I know there are still castles existing but never thought there are still castles where they preserved the original architecture like where the crossbows position themselves, where they pour the hot boiling oil, and the dungeon. I liked Scarlett and Taylor teaming up. May 13, Stephanie rated it really liked it.

To view it, click here. I quite liked the first Scarlett Wakefield book, it was imaginative and the plot twist clever and unexpected. Sadly, book 2 does not even come close. It's lurid, melodramatic, and almost laughably unrealistic. The author seems to have thrown together as many ghastly plot points as possible to give extra shock value. First off, Dan who was the nice guy in the first book turns out to have a secret collection of Polaroids of naked girls, to provide a possible motive for his murder.
Next Scarlett fi I quite liked the first Scarlett Wakefield book, it was imaginative and the plot twist clever and unexpected. Next Scarlett finds herself attracted to Callum, Dan's twin brother, which is rather creepy if you ask me. Yes, I suppose you could say it's an unconscious transference of her feelings for Dan, but it comes across as very forced and contrived. Callum is out-and-out hostile to Scarlett, whom he holds responsible for Dan's death.
Who wouldn't fall in love with someone who's yelling at you to get out of his home? Not to mention that Scarlett is also entangled in a relationship with Jase back at Wakefield Hall. What's next? Scarlett gets shot at by Callum's jealousy-crazed girlfriend because she "didn't like the way Callum was looking at Scarlett". Another twist to compound the mystery. And Moira the housekeeper was up in London at the time of Dan's death, throwing a smidgen of suspicion on her.
It gets more complicated but less believable. Then Taylor shows up suddenly, after being left behind in England, to lend a hand to Scarlett very conveniently when Scarlett needs her. And if that's not enough drama, the twin's older sister Catriona is so determined to inherit the entailed family castle that she plots to kill both her brothers. The author must have watched too many soap operas. It was actually pretty obvious because Cat has been feeding Scarlett a lot of red herrings and is the only one in the family who is not blaming Scarlett for Dan's death. Well that's because she knows the truth, isn't it?
Dan's murder was ingeniously camouflaged as an accident thanks to Scarlett.

But with Callum's birthday coming up, when he will attain the age of majority, Cat has to move quickly and ends up attempting to force Callum to jump from the tower on the edge of a cliff. Scarlett gets there in time to witness the attempt, and of course jumps in to save Callum. Cat pulls a gun on her and they're both about to die, but there's enough time for them to have a moment of connection and Scarlett to notice how attractive Callum is.
When he's hanging off the tower about to fall off the cliff. Ok, now continue the dying moment. They're both about to die, when Surprise, surprise! Taylor shows up again and tackles Cat, so the gun goes off and Cat is accidentally shot. How did Taylor even know where they were? Scarlett hadn't even known where Callum was, and had to run all over trying to find him. She didn't get a chance to text Taylor the location of their deadly struggle. Taylor wasn't even living at the castle, she had a long way to travel to get there. The McAndrews family isn't supposed to know that she's there, or even where Scarlett, Cat, and Callum have gone, so there's no way anyone could have given her directions.
And if the tower is so hidden and out of the way that Scarlett hadn't known it was there - and she was actually living on the grounds - how did Taylor find it? This book was a disappointment, and you can be sure I'm not about to read the next two instalments. I've had enough lurid Gothic melodrama with this one book. View 2 comments.
