Fans of Meg Cabot, Sara Shepard, and Ally Carter will delight in this exciting new paperback original.
Although I’m repeating myself. I am not a big fan of Ghost Stories, however this synopsis totally grabbed me and I was eager to dig into this mystery/ghost story… and I wasn’t disappointed!
Charlotte – suddenly dead. But how?!
It was easy to get hooked right from the start. Charlotte’s voice was light and had the perfect amount of humor to make me smile despite the fact that she just died! Truly, Charlotte was a great main character I loved her witty personality and her eagerness to make the best out of her new situation.
One might think that the story holds a touch of sadness, since we begin with Charlotte dying! But, this is not the case and made me even like the story so much more. It’s definitely not an issue book, and rather a fun, light story of a girl finding her murderer, dealing with an (ex-) boyfriend and new mysterious boy and the her new (also dead) friends.
Flashed out secondary characters and a cute concept!
Imagine a (not to be seen) hotel full of teenage girls, all ghosts and all trying to uncover the truth behind the latest murderer. Each of the girls from the agency had their own distinct character and together they had everything from bouncy, cute, eager and .. too eager! Seeing those different girls forming a bond over the common dead/ghost status was cute and added to the overall enjoyment of the story!
Suspenseful! Murder! Mystery! A cheating Boyfriend and a new hotness on the horizon…
The story itself was absolutely great and there was never a moment of boredom! From finding Charlotte’s murders to learning what a Ghost can do, do Charlotte’s ex-boyfriends, the story was resourceful and diversified! Then there is Ed – the only boy among the girls and he’s mysterious and it’s hard to get is personality and agenda. This is also the only complain I have – I would have loved to get deeper into his personality but I am sure this is yet to come in the upcoming sequel.
Also, the latest twist was nice but could have been flashed out a little more!
Cute, Entertaining, Fun and a suspenseful mystery filled with great Characters and a starring genuine heroine makes this book to a cute page-turner. The Dead Girls Agency is an awesome kick off into a new series that will get a place on my reading pile when I’m looking for a light and fun distraction!
