Kiss Me Kill Me by Lauren Henderson

Scarlett Wakefield has two wishes: one, to grow breasts, and the other to kiss Dan McAndrew. It's not too long before both her wishes come true, but the second wish leads to something completely unexpected: Dan McAndrew suffocates to death in her arms. To escape the gossip at her posh private school, St. Tabby’s, Scarlett transfers to Wakefield, the school her grandmother founded in the English countryside, where she can start over. But then an anonymous note appears on her desk that will set her on a path to clearing her name and finding out what really happened to the first and last boy she kissed.
The premise of Kiss Me Kill Me drew me in the moment I saw the cover. The mystery surrounding Dan’s death was intriguing and original. Although the beginning and end were fast-paced and interesting, the middle dragged a bit, but the original plot and descriptive writing kept the flow going. I kept waiting for Scarlett to discover how Dan died and who was at fault. The conclusion tied up a few loose ends, but not all. Thankfully, the sequel, Kisses and Lies is available now in hardcover. I will hopefully be reading it soon.
