When Rose witnesses the murder of a loud-mouthed boy from her college, she is thrown headfirst into the middle of a mystery. Rose and her stepbrother, Josh, are no strangers to mysteries. They have wondered for five long years what happened to her mother and his father, when they didn’t come home one night and haven’t been seen or heard from since.

Rose is caught in the middle of trying to help Josh let go when all he wants to do is dig deeper into their parents’ disappearance, and uncovering the truth in the recent murder. But when another body is added to the list, it may be more than Rose can handle.

Dead Time was a great murder mystery book that didn’t clobber its reader over the head with details. Rose was a very likeable character who lead us through the story easily as she flits between new clues in her mother’s disappearance and the spree of murders of her classmates.

I loved the emotional elements to the book. Rose now lives with her cold grandmother who just wants Rose to make something of her life. But Rose knows what she wants and it isn’t what her grandmother has in mind. Especially if that means having anything to do with Josh.

This is a great opening book in what is sure to be an amazing series. I am genuinely looking forward to the next one.
