Book Review: No Time to Die (Dark Secrets, #3) by Elizabeth Chandler

No Time to Die (Dark Secrets, #3)
by Elizabeth Chandler

Elizabeth Chandler can seriously set the mood for a creepy mystery. No Time to Die is the third novel taking place in Wisteria. This is the story of Jenny, a girl who is attending the summer acting program in Wisteria, a year after her sister was murdered by a serial killer at the exact same place. Jenny believes that visiting her sister's last school will bring her some closure. But once there strange things begin to happen. Jenny is certain that she can feel Liza with her and during the night blue dreams of her sister's last moments haunt her. As Jenny begins to unravel the mystery behind her sister's murder all things point not to the serial killer but a more close acquaintance.

No Time to Die was creepy, fast-paced and an amazing mystery. From the moment Jenny set foot on Wisteria every one was a suspect. I kept guessing for a while what the hell had happened to her sister and even though I came up with some of the answers a little after the middle of the book, the author still managed to surprise me with a huge twist at the end.

Even though we didn't get to learn a lot about most of the characters in this book, and I didn't really had any sort of attachments to any of them, besides Jenny, this didn't take anything away from the story. Because this is not a character driven book. It's all about the mystery and sometimes that works out perfectly. This is one of those times. So, I am not going to say anything about the charactes, except that Jenny was a very relatable person and I enjoyes being inside her mind.

All in all, this series is just getting better. I love that each book is a standalong but there are all connected by the mysterious town of Wisteria. Looking forward to the next one.
