GoodReads Summary: With Dan McAndrews's murder finally behind her, Scarlett has high hopes for a fresh start at Wakefield Hall Collegiate, the elite English boarding school her grandmother runs. Unfortunately, those hopes are dashed when her nemesis, the infamous Plum Saybourne, is transferred to the school. Plum wastes no time turning Scarlett’s impressionable classmates against her.

Scarlett has dealt with Plum’s nasty schemes before, and she can handle her archenemy very nicely, thank you—until Plum sets her sights on Scarlett’s best friend, Taylor, and new boyfriend, Jase. Then Scarlett is more than willing to fight for what’s rightfully hers.

Things only get worse after Scarlett becomes entangled in a mysterious death on campus. Scarlett is compelled to investigate because she wants to protect someone close to her. She never imagines that she’ll uncover secrets related to her parents’ fatal accident so many years ago. . . .

Student Review: Kiss in the Dark is another great addition to the Kiss Me Kill Me series by Lauren Henderson . Scarlett Wakefield's life is a never-ending adventure full of mystery, love, laughs, and death. But when secrets from her parents death rise to the surface will she be able to keep it together? Scarlett depends on her rock, Jase Barnes, to help her through it. When family fueds strike, threatening their relationship, will it bring them closer together or tear them apart? As if that's not enough, Plum is back and meaner than ever, up to her elbows in schemes against Scarlett and her best friend Taylor. They need each other to make it through to the truth but when Taylor isn't acting like herself will it be enough? 

I absolutely loved this book! It is just as gut-wrenching and suspenseful as the first two books in the series. It is definitely a must read for anyone who has read the first two Kiss Me, Kill me books and for any mystery loving readers who want to it will have an ending that will knock your socks off!!!
