That is, until Justine goes cliff-diving one night near the family’s vacation house in Maine, and her lifeless body washes up on shore the next day.

Though her parents hope that they’ll be able to find closure back in Boston, Vanessa can’t help feeling that her sister’s death wasn’t an accident. After discovering that Justine was keeping a lot of secrets, Vanessa returns to Winter Harbor, hoping that Justine’s boyfriend might know more. But Caleb has been missing since Justine’s death.

Soon, it’s not just Vanessa who’s afraid. All of Winter Harbor is abuzz with anxiety when another body washes ashore, and panic sets in when the small town becomes host to a string of fatal, water-related accidents in which all the victims are found, horrifically, grinning from ear to ear.

Vanessa turns to Caleb’s brother, Simon, for help, and begins to find herself drawn to him. As the pair try to understand the sudden rash of creepy drownings, Vanessa uncovers a secret that threatens her new romance—and will change her life forever.

A seductive paranormal romance full of unexpected twists, Siren is certain to make a big summer splash."

Ummmmmm, is there a sequal?? And if so could I read now.....

This book was great! I loved reading every part of it. From the very first word on the page to the last word, this book had me holding my every waking breath. It caught me, making me read this in one day. Yeah, thats how fast I devoured this.

After Vanessa older sisters passes she leave going in search of some answer to her sisters death. Vanessa is all of a sudden is witnessing death occurring by the ocean.Sailors found at the shore with nothing but a wide grin on their faces. With the help of a neighborhood boy she knew all of her life, Simon, they set out and pursue what they never though could ever exist.

Vanessa is one character I could relate too. Like her, I am afraid of trying new or scary things. I rather stay where it is safe. Vanessa has never been brave before and well, she finds herself having to things she never dreamed of in order to find out what happen to her sister.

The romance in this book was just right. I like to read how it blossomed between Simon and Venessa, they fit just right together.

Now the ending, Tricia goes out with a bang leaving my hanging and wanting more!
The last sentence left me breathless and well angry. Sorry Tricia! Its that well, I want to keep reading to know what happen with Vanessa, but I guess I will just have to wait and see.

If you have not read Siren you should. Tricia did a great job writing this. There were no curse words, but there was one sexual scene. Not in total description but enough to know to figure out whats going on. Other than that. The book was great!

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!
