OMG. Laurie Stolarz is now my official Favorite author of all time. Nothing is better than this Touch series. When I first read the book deadly little secret I was immediately pulled in. There are no words to explain of how I felt about this series, but I for one hope that Laurie is far from done. If she is writing more into the series with Ben and Camelia. An I will cherish this series for life.
Thanks for much,
JoAnna

Format: Hardcover
Camelia is slowly learning to accept her unusual gift of psychometry, the ability to sense things through touch. Even though she sometimes finds herself fighting for her sanity, a battle her aunt has lost with her own psychometry, Camelia can't help but admit that good that can come out of it like all of the suffering people she can help. Still, dealing with this gift is definitely a challenge, and that's on the easy days. Then Camelia stumbles onto a deeply buried family secret that makes "easy" seem a distant memory.

With her world tipped upside down, Camelia struggles to find a foothold. Her friends Wes and Kimmie are lifesavers, and her boyfriend, Adam, is trying to understand. However, she really misses Ben, a fellow psychometric. Unfortunately, he has distanced himself both physically and emotionally from Camelia, and she finds she needs him more than ever when she starts to receive new psychometry messages. With a bit of digging, Camelia believes the crying she's hearing 24/7 are coming from Sasha, the missing teen who disappeared two months ago. Camelia is positive Sasha is still alive and in grave danger, so she decides to do what she can to help.

So when a summer arts program opens up in Sasha's hometown, Camelia decides to attend. Not only will this program get her closer to the clues in Sasha's case, but it's a grand opportunity to put some much needed distance between herself and her festering family secret. As an added bonus, Camelia is thrilled to find out that Wes signs up for the arts program, as well. Now she'll have some backup in her investigations. Then she stumbles across a blog by a fellow named Neal sharing his own psychometry experiences; although she appreciates reading about his similar problems, it makes her miss Ben even more.

I was recommended this series by my cousin, who had read all the books and said she loved them. I got interested and downloaded all the books to my kindle. Of course, the books were amazing. The one thing I did not like about it, though, was the live triangle. But of course, there always has to be a love triangle. Laurie probably felt pressured to throw Adam into the story, though he does play a big part in Deadly Little Games. All the books will keep you up late, reading the books as if your life depends on it. Camelia is a totally believable and relatable character. She is not totally obsessed with herself and does not harbor much self pity.

Ben. Where can I begin to describe him? He is so selfless and sweet that it makes me jealous of Camelia for getting all of his love. Haha, but no, I really shipped Ben and Camelia.

This book is deserving of it's five stars from me.

Throughout this series was amazing!

It was Action-packed and so full of mystery I love it! It kept me on my toes throughout every scene
even my detective instincts came out to figure out the mystery of every book haha!

This was the first series I've read where it took a lot of time for the main characters to realize
they love each other and the girl dated someone else. Adam in this series was adorable and sweet
and absolutely loved him. To bad there wasn't more about Ben or maybe even a book about his POV.

This is definitely a series I recommend anyone who's into physic powers and stalking/kidnapping mystery with some teen romance and family drama =)

I am a fan of all of the books in this series, but this is by far my favorite. Although the book wasn't as action packed and the ending may have been a bit rushed, it was the perfect ending to the series. All of the major plot lines were tied up, and this plot line brought yet a new feel to the stalker/ kidnapper mysteries that I have loved in the previous books. A great conclusion to the series (Ben + Camelia <3); I will truly miss this series and wish that there were more to come. Great ending Ms. Stolarz, and I look forward to hopefully reading another great paranormal series from you in the near future (fingers crossed).
