Now for the review...
Emily Winters is loving the Winter holidays just as much as she always does, especially this year, when the guy she's started having feelings for starts to finally notice her. But she knows one thing for sure, if she wants to start a relationship with him, and she's almost certain she does, there isn't going to be any going back, because he's dating her best friend.
And then there's Chase, he with his rising in the social status, despite the fact that he comes from a poor background- but when he becomes haunted by something that the person he's pretending to be would never have done, things start to get a little creepy...
Both Emily and Chase are united unwittingly with the suicide attempt of Sasha, a girl they both knew and who was taunted for being different.
Now three mysterious girls with wreaths of orchids at the ready, are out to make the wrongdoers pay...
Thank you to Simon and Schuster for this review copy!
What I thought:
I, firstly, am really intrigued by this cover- the dress is so simple and pretty, tied at the side with a ivy green sash, and the orange, flamey hair, it makes the whole thing most intriguing.
The cover girl is Ty, a most deadly character in the book...
The storyline was really interesting, but overall I was pretty creeped out by the Furies, the three sisters out for revenge, they are absolutely scary and I did not like meeting them; so as in the book they are very prominent characters, masquerading as nice young girls from time to time, I didn't like Fury- I was way too scared of these three to enjoy it, and that's saying something!
The fact that Emily started falling for her best, and I mean best- this is the girl who's stuck by her for almost her whole life, through terribly hard times and all- friend's boyfriend, I found that a little crazy; Emily knew she shouldn't get involved, but she pushed those thoughts aside and I just thought that was the wrong move.
Which I suppose is why the Furies sought her out... only you will have to wait and find out wether she escapes their wrath...
