Book Description

As Tara and Flynn are closing in on Dee Dee Broyles' killer, a deadly new ghost begins to threaten them. It's just another day in Tara's lunatic life . . .All during the day at school, Tara kept picturing the moment when she and Nate would find DeeDee's grave. Even the classes she had with Flynn, who made everything fun, never seemed to end. By the time the last bell rang, she was fired up like a roman candle on the Fourth of July. She bolted from her seat, made a quick stop at her locker, and slipped out a side door instead of taking the front, knowing full well she was going to miss seeing Flynn. She didn't have time to delay or explain, and she had a feeling he wouldn't be all that thrilled in what she was doing. He was pretty cool about her psychic stuff, but digging for bodies fell way out of the realm of normal-even for her.Sharon Sala is the bestselling author of romance, suspense and historical novels for adults, and now, of the popular Lunatic Life mysteries for young adults. She's hard at work on her next Lunatic Life novel.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mindless and fluffy July 20, 2013
By Iris
Well this was a very light / fluffy read (with emphasis on very). There's no other way to describe this book. Even though it was entertaining, and very amusing when a certain ghost started meddling, there was not much depth in this story. Everything went too smooth, too easy. Even when watching CSI, they usually end up with several dead ends before finding the murderer. Here it was way too obvious how the story would end and therefore I could not feel any angst or excitement for figuring everything out correctly.

There were also times in the book were the point of view switched to Flynn, to see his thoughts about certain events. Normally I'm someone who can't get enough from reading through the eyes of the romantic interest, the very hot bad boy, who might or might not have certain feelings for the main character. This time, however, I cringed every time I was in Flynn's head. It just felt wrong (sorry can't describe it any other way). It was like Flynn didn't have his own voice, his own identity. It seemed as if he became Tara, what should not be possible even with all her powers. And it just felt awful.

We also have a major case of insta love. Fortunately there were not a lot of romantic moments. That was another thing that made me cringe. Unless you're soulmates (and even then) it's just not possible to develop such strong feelings in such a short amount of time. Thank God romance wasn't a big issue in this story and was kept in the background.

The ghosts were very fun, though. Especially Millicent and her mother-bear-whose-cub-is-threatened behavior made me smile. I really liked her. It was a shame, though, that we only got to know the ghosts as clouds of plasma with a voice. I'd really liked some more info.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Series November 16, 2011
This is a really great start to anew series...can't wait to see what comes next. Tara is a terrific character with a strong voice and I love reading about her adventures. Flynn is great...with realistic flaws and the relationship with Tara is great, even though it is not all smooth sailing.
The book is an overall good read except that Tara's mom experienced a name change from book 1 to book 2 and no one ever speaks of her Dad...and who or what is Patrick running from?
I hope this series lasts for a while and doesn't end after this author's typical three books. Can't wait for the next release.

It was entertaining but probably more suited to young teens. It leaves one issue unresolved for the next book in the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as great as the 1st book... April 9, 2015
I LOVED the first book in this series, My Lunatic Life ! I loved the ghost story feel to it and it also had a pretty good mystery, so I was super excited to read its sequel! Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would.

In Lunatic Detective we basically get a continuation of the last book's mystery surrounding DeeDee's murder. Tara tries to prove that DeeDee's brother killed her, wile said brother is actually stalking Tara. Yikes, I know. At the same time this is going on, Tara also starts noticing this evil darkness lurking around her. Now, what the heck it is, I have no idea, but it really wants to hurt her.

This book though, it just wasn't as fun and interesting as the first one! I mean, there wasn't really a mystery to solve... we already know who DeeDee's killer is and all Tara is trying to do is prove it. And this whole deal actually gets solved pretty early on in the book.

But I didn't hate this book! I also didn't love it, though. It was just kind of... meh. One thing I did love about this book, though, was Flynn! He is so, SO sweet and charming and gorgeous and *swoon* But anyway, I'm looking forward to finding out what this "darkness" thing is and what it wants.

Tara finally feels she is on the right track to finally getting accepted when her life gets turned upside done yet sgain. Will her life ever resemble even a tiny bit of normalcy? These books are more and more intriguing. I am enjoying every minute of them!
