Synopsis:

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.

My rating: ★★★☆☆

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.
