Death in Perspective
Summary from Goodreads:
The curtain rises on Cherry Tucker’s debut as a high school set designer at the posh Peerless Day Academy. Cherry’s been hired for an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, but the drama director is hoping Cherry can also turn the spotlight on a malicious social media bully who’s sending poisonous texts to the faculty. The director’s got his own drama to hide, and the phantom texter seems eager to spill school secrets. When the principal’s secretary commits suicide, Cherry suspects foul play.
Deputy Luke Harper is ready to return as Cherry’s leading man. He’s eager to assist in finding the phantom culprit, but Cherry fears family secrets offstage may doom them to the role as star-crossed lovers. With the bully waiting for a murderous encore and her own family skeletons to hide, Cherry scrambles to find her brother and the mysterious texter before the phantom decides it’s curtains for Cherry and forces her to take a final bow.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
This is my first Larissa Reinhart book- but since I generally adore the Henery Press books- I felt pretty safe participating in this book tour- even though I have not read the other 3 books in the series.
Cherry Tucker is so darn funny. She’s got love problems- living with her ex-boyfriend, trying to be just friends with him. Then another ex-boyfriend wants her back- and they are the Romeo and Juliet of Georgia- neither family wants them together. Cherry is smart, funny, and a memorable character!
So, while there was some things I was a bit lost in- Larissa does do a pretty good job of trying to keep the reader up to speed whether this is the first book you’ve read or if you are a die-hard fan! I liked the small-town feel and the characters that you could instantly feel comfortable with (and you just know that if you took the time to read the other books- you would love these characters more!)
My take: Read this book- but if this is your first time with Larissa- go read the first book (I plan to!) There is romance, funny characters, smart one-liners, and small town drama. All in all- an enjoyable read!
