AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! WHY do they wait a year? I mean, sure, she has to write it, but I think that by the time she had DLV published, she was almost finished with DLL. I am going to DIE and then go crazy (in that order) waiting for this book!! I hope she ends up with Ben. I don't like Adam all that much. I mean, after the stunt he pulled in the second book? I would NEVER go back. Ben, I get his reasons. His girlfriend died, he almost lost Camelia in every book, so he's beyond wary. I don't ...more

I was a bit disappointed with this book, especially since it's the last book in the series. *MILD SPOILERS AHEAD WARNING**
Some of my biggest problems had to do with the "love triangle" going on between Camelia, Ben and Adam. The whole series was this drama filled relationship, push-pull, thing with Camelia and Ben. And then Adam came along and was even more drama, even though he was this awesome guy. So in this book, all of a sudden Adam starts being not so perfect (which is weird because up

Deadly Little Lessons is a satisfying conclusion to the Touch series. The story starts with a bang, with Camelia accidentally discovering information that turns her life upside down. In trying to deal with her problems she discovers the case of a missing girl, a girl with whom she has a lot in common with. Camelia immediately gets sucked into trying to find out what happened to her and the premonitions she gets as a result of that really start to interfere with her daily life. It gets to a point ...more

Laurie Stolarz never ceases to amaze me.
When I opened up her first book in the series, I was so deeply attached to each and every character. After each passing book my heart sunk, awaiting the release of the next one, and arriving at my doorstep.
I have to admit, I pre-ordered Deadly Little Lessons, and actually hesitated to read it for a few weeks, only because I didn't want this heart-wrenching series to end. Today (Sunday the 6th of January) I finally picked up the book at 1pm and read it

My favorite cover by far. And after reading that description, I'm actually kind of glad that I didn't get DLV until the other day or I would have gone ballistic, knowing that the next book won't be released in a year! Especially after how that ending left spazzing, WHHHY!?

But, NEAL? WHAT? Team Ben! Forget Adam.

Edit: Some minor spoilers (though the ending is so predictable, there's really nothing to spoil. But we'll cover that later.)

I absolutely adore you Mrs. Stolarz. So much to the point

Deadly Little Lessons is the fifth book in the Touch series. For me, it wasn’t the strongest book. I was a little disappointed actually with this being the last book and all. I still feel like there is no growth for Camelia. Kimmie and Wes on the other hand move on to bigger and better things. They both grow a lot in this book and find out whom they want to be. Camelia seems to still be stuck.

In this book Camelia learns a dark secret her parents have been keeping from her. I won’t reveal what

I absolutely love this book! Again, it's obvious because I absolutely adore Laurie Stolarz! She really is my author and can keep me interested in a book and not let me get bored. The way Camelia is conflicted between Ben and Adam is exciting because you can really is feeling for Ben. What I don't understand how Adam never noticed that when he was around Camelia that she was lost. Her mind was trailing to Ben all the time. If I was a guy, I would notice that my girlfriend was thinking of other ...more

Life for Camelia doesn't seem to ever get seem to get easier, even after she found out about her aunt having the same abilities and she was hoping when Aunt Alexia stayed with them it could give her some answers. Her love life too was on the rocks as she was still very much in love with Ben , but was in a relationship with Adam- whom she did care for but wasn't in love with on the same level as Ben who was away in New York getting some space and time away. In Deadly Little Lessons , Camelia

This series never fails to keep me guessing, I love the mystery aspect of every story & the weaving in of psychometry. I always felt like Camelia didn't fight enough for Ben & just ended up with Adam. I am so glad that she actually spent some time trying to figure things out & do what she needed to do for herself. Adam is a sweet guy, but it's obvious that Camelia belongs with Ben, they just get each other & she was completely missing that with Adam. I loved the scenes between ...more

This series has kept me in such suspense since the first book with who Camelia is going to end up with. I'm very relieved to finally know who that is, plus he is my favorite character. I'm very happy with this book, which has turned out to be my favorite in the series. Finally, she is with her soulmate. It was the perfect way to end the series.

Best of the series. Completely bummed out that she isn't writing more in the series. Camelia's Aunt said something to her towards the end of the book suggesting something like major and now I really must know how this is all going. But all-in-all, I really did like it.

After a year of waiting, here it is. It was okay. A little disappointing, I guess. I really love this series and I was expecting something really big to happen to Camelia. The ending turned out flat for me. There were also many things that weren't given attention in this book. The thing with Tommy's not enough for me. It lacks something as exciting as the action in the earlier books. Uhm, it turned out a bit easy for Camelia and Ben. They haven't done much, I think.

The thing with Alexia's still

Review originally posted on my blog

Deadly Little Lessons by Laurie Faria Stolarz is a bittersweet ending to a series I’ve loved reading for the past few years.

I’m a sucker for stalker/murder/mystery type books and I loved the paranormal aspect of this series by Laurie Faria Stolarz. The mystery in Deadly Little Lessons is equally intriguing as the previous installments, although it didn’t really have that high-stakes, intense feeling as the other books.

At the time of reading this book, I did not know that it was part of series. It did not seem out of place, or make me lost while reading it. Deadly Little Lessons Is a book about a young girl in her junior year of high school. She has the power to be able to read minds in a way, she can hear people who are in danger, and she tries to save them. In the beginning of the

To give herself some space, she applies for a summer pottery camp at a college in Rhode Island. At the same time, a young girl's disappearance has caused Camelia's psychometry talents to affect her pottery designs and Camelia is convinced that she can help find Sasha. All the while she is also struggling with conflicting feelings for Ben and Adam. Without having ...more
I loved this series when it began, but, frankly, I've grown tired of the repetitive plot lines and conflicts. While the story in and of itself wasn't bad, I've found I no longer love the characters. Usually Stolarz writes beautiful suspense, the kind of suspense that has readers biting fingernails and staying up all night. Unfortunately, this suspense just wasn't present in Deadly Little Lessons. Overall, a disappointing read.
