Death By Series By Linda Gerber (Review)

Death By Bikini

A day at the beach can be murder… Aphra Behn Connolly has the type of life most teenage girls envy. She lives on a remote tropical island and spends most of her time eavesdropping on the rich and famous. The problem is that her family's secluded luxury resort allows few opportunities for her to make friends—much less to meet cute boys. So when a smoldering Seth Mulo turns up with his parents, she's immediately drawn to him. Sure, he's a little bit guarded, and sure his parents are rather cold, and okay he won't say a word about his past, but their chemistry is undeniable.Then a famous rock star's girlfriend turns up dead on the beach—strangled by her own bikini top—and alarm bells sound. What exactly are Seth and his family hiding? And is it too great a coincidence that they turned up just one day before a murder? As Aphra digs into the mystery, she discovers that Seth and his family are in hiding from a dangerous terrorist organization. And, what's more, her mother—whom she hadn't heard from in years—might be involved. As the plot thickens, Aphra finds that danger lurks behind even the most unexpected of faces. . . .

This was super good I don't remember much because I read a week ago and I have read like 10 books since then.But I really love Aphra she is a really good main character and I thought Seth was great to. I can't say to much or it ruins the whole book. But I would read this book. It was really good and the plot was very entertaining and fast paced especially at the last 75ish pages.

Death By Latte

It was only a few weeks ago that Aphra Connolly's life changed completely. She had been living a quiet existence on her father's secluded island resort, until Seth Mulo turned up and stole her heart . . . and provided information that led her to find her mom in Seattle. But the reunion isn't quite what she expected. Aphra's mom, Natalie, doesn't seem happy to see Aphra, and Natalie's boyfriend, Joe, insists that Aphra go home. Even worse, Seth shows up, only to ask her to return the ring he gave her the previous summer. At least Natalie's hunky neighbor is sympathetic. But when Joe is found dead at a nearby coffee shop, Aphra discovers her whole trip to Seattle has been based on a lie. And now someone just might be trying to kill her. . . .

This one wasn't as good as the first one in the beginning but I really liked the ending I think it was almost better. We learn even more about Aphra ans Seth and what kind person Natalie is and her background. There is a lot of mystery and a lot twists and turns and people who don't seem like who they really are.

Death By Denim
Even though Aphra Connolly knows there are some very dangerous people on their tail when she met her mom, Natalie, in Paris, she envisioned the two of them strolling along the Champs-Elysées, sharing Nutella-smeared crepes and mother-daughter bonding. But the only strolling they’ve been doing is from one cheap hostel to another, and the “moments” they share consist of Natalie instructing Aphra on the finer points of anonymity and survival. When Natalie’s CIA contact in Paris is found floating in the Seine with a deadly message stuffed into his mouth, Aphra realizes that, like Seth Mulo and his family, she will never be able to stop running unless she confronts the situation head-on. Sneaking away from her mom and her CIA protector Ryan, Aphra tracks down a criminal mastermind in Italy, only to discover that Seth had the same idea, and her presence may have just put Seth in mortal danger...

This I think was the best in the series so far don't know if there will be anymore. But the plot was the best and got going the fastest and hooked me the fastest too. This definitely had the best ending and turn of events. I can't say much because I might reveal too much

So I know these aren't the best of reviews but Ii had to do this fast and I didn't want a really long post.

But these are a really good and you should really read them.
