Review: Die for Me

After the death of her parents, Kate and her sister move to Paris to live with their grandparents. Both girls are devastated by their loss. Georgia buries her grief and continues her life as a social butterfly. Kate on the other hand, hides out in her room until her grandmother forces her outside.

Kate starts spending her days at an outdoor cafe, with her nose buried in a book. The world of books make her forget her troubles. One day she spots a boy. He's adorable.

She can't get him out of her mind. Suddenly, she sees him everywhere. After a chance encounter at a museum, the two go on a date. The date ends up revealing more about Vincent than he desires.

He's not normal and neither is his live.

As Kate starts to unravel the pieces of information she discovers, she's not sure she wants anything to do with him anymore. She's also not sure she can give him up.

My Thoughts: The start of a new series shows the power of love, friendships tested, the bond of sisters, and danger. A new twist to the flood of paranormal books conveys the uniqueness of this story. I loved unraveling the mystery with Kate and understanding Vincent's world. I loved the sisters relationship - and how it changed because of their parents' death. I loved reading about Paris - I could almost picture myself walking down the street along with Kate. If you're a fan of paranormal romance - don't miss out on this book!

Cover Thoughts: This cover is different than the one on the ARC - which is a girl in a boat on the river wearing a blue dress - which matches a scene in the book. The new one (the red one) is gorgeous, but it doesn't match the book. It does however have a lovely view of the Eiffel Towel. I still like the old cover better:

Glad to hear you enjoyed this one. I've had my eye on it. And I agree, the older cover was way better!
