Kiss Me Kill Me by Lauren Henderson

I usually write my own summary but I'm feeling lazy today so here's the synopsis from

When 16-year-old Scarlett Wakefield transfers from St. Tabby’s to Wakefield Hall Collegiate, she is relieved that no one knows her dark, haunting secret. A few months ago, Scarlett was invited to an elite party with a guest list full of the hottest names in British society, including Dan McAndrew. Before the party, Scarlett had only imagined what it would be like to have her first kiss with Dan, but on the penthouse terrace, Dan leaned in close and she no longer had to wonder. Their kiss was beautiful and perfect and magical, and then . . . Dan McAndrew took his last breath as she held him in her arms. No one knows how or why Dan died, and everyone at St. Tabby’s believes Scarlett had something to do with it. But now that she’s safely hidden away at Wakefield Hall, Scarlett would rather forget that it ever happened. Only she can’t. Especially when she receives an anonymous note that will set her on the path to clearing her name and finding out what really happened to the first and last boy she kissed.

This book is one of my new favorites. It so suspenseful, I just couldn't put it down. I read it in about a day. I loved the British dialect - things like "bloody hell" and "oh bugger" cracked me up. Kiss Me Kill Me was a murder mystery with elements of classic chick lit and touches of boy and family problems. The ending will have you running to Borders to get the sequel. I recommend this book if you like mystery, chick lit, and/or the author's other novels.

5 out of 5 stars


  1. I think that if I kissed a boy and he fell down dead, I'd never kiss a boy again! It would scar me for life! :)

    This book sounds good - almost like Veronica Mars? I hope so!


  2. i LOVED this book. it was fantastic. :)
