It was only a few weeks ago that Aphra Connolly’s life changed completely. She had been living a quiet existence on her father’s secluded island resort, until Seth Mulo turned up and stole her heart . . . and provided information that led her to find her mom in Seattle. But the reunion isn’t quite what she expected. Aphra’s mom, Natalie, doesn’t seem happy to see Aphra, and Natalie’s boyfriend, Joe, insists that Aphra go home. Even worse, Seth shows up, only to ask her to return the ring he gave her the previous summer. At least Natalie’s hunky neighbor is sympathetic. But when Joe is found dead at a nearby coffee shop, Aphra discovers her whole trip to Seattle has been based on a lie. And now someone just might be trying to kill her. . . .

Linda Gerber recently returned to life in the Midwest after four years in Japan, where she served as the Regional Advisor for the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. She currently lives and writes in Dublin, OH, blissfully ignoring her husband, four kids, and one very naughty puppy.From Booklist:
Gerber continues her Death By series as teenage Aphra Connolly finds her elusive mother in Seattle. Then who should turn up but Aphra’s friend/boyfriend Adam/Seth, desperate to reclaim the ring he gave her, which is needed to save his father’s life. The story is tissue-thin, but Gerber keeps the action churning, with secret agents, explosions, and a dizzying assortment of escapes—by plane, by foot, and even by kayak. Readers will find more of what they liked in Death by Bikini (2008), and an epilogue will assure them that there’s still a good deal to come. Grades 7-10. --Stephanie Zvirin
