Life has always been just about perfect for beautiful Brooke Madison Burke. She even married the man of her dreams - but the promise of happily ever after fell to pieces when her husband was killed while serving in Iraq. Broken-hearted, she returns to the idyllic world of St Dennis. Surrounded by her loving family and friends, she's determined to build a new life, complete with her own cupcake bakery. She's equally determined never to fall in love again. A fourth-generation attorney, Jesse Enright has spent his life fighting to escape the shadow of his irresponsible father. Now he's moved to St Dennis to run the family law practice, and he's ready to find the right girl, get married and settle down. But then he meets Brooke and finds himself caught between the unbreakable law of attraction and Brooke's resolve to go her way alone - despite the undeniable feelings Jesse stirs in her . . . Mariah Stewart's Chesapeake Diaries series is wonderfully warm and follows the lives and loves of a group of characters in a small town on the Chesapeake Bay… (més)

Fear Street # 25

Carter Phillips is feeling the cold bite of her father's disapproval for the first time in her life and it hurts. She has always gotten good grades, made the right friends, does all the extracurriculars, but she's only OK at math. Her advanced math score (was SAT trademarked in the '90s?) came out at only 570 and she needs over a 700 to get into Princeton. Daddy is a judge working on a big case against a Shadyside Crime Boss and really doesn't need his little girl disappointing him right now.

She's supposed to retake the test on Saturday, and is dreading it. Her best friend Jill and boyfriend Dan commiserate with her, and Dan takes her for a milkshake. There, giddy with malt sugar and dairy Carter jokes that Dan, being a whiz at math, should take the exam for her and no one would ever guess since her name could just as easily be a guy's. Square Dan doesn't think that's funny and soon leaves, wishing her luck. At that very moment a breathy voice tells her he'll take the test for her. To Carter's shock its Adam, the brilliant, but poor, kid who lives on Fear Street. He's in advanced math with her, but he's edgy and '90s cool even while serving milk shakes.

When Carter hears that all Adam wants is a single date she agrees to let him take the test for her - what could go wrong?

Duh, it isn't just one date. Adam keeps demanding more and more from Carter until she doesn't know what to do. At first, it seems like Carter enjoys the different kind of attention Adam is giving her (sure he's forcing me to hang out with him, but the kissing is so great!), but at the first sign of Carter mentioning her actual boyfriend, or Adam's own girlfriend Sheila, he's all about the blackmail, so that doesn't last. She receives a bloody note, a car almost runs her off the road, and Adam's girlfriend, also poor, is really freaking her out. Worst of all, Carter feels super guilty about the Tiffany diamond earrings her father gets her as a congratulatory gift.

This had some pretty terrible stuff in it. You do not want to mess around with Shadyside's underworld. At a dive club a whole bar (including the band) gathered 'round to watch a girl get molested, screaming, on the dance floor. The reason? She was rich. No supernatural elements needed in a place where that happens.

Scenes such as that one were over-the-top, but effectively scary, and there was a neat twist ending and some real ambiguity near the end about who is the real baddie, so that gives it a boost. It's been said before, but no one should read 'Fear Street' expecting good behavior and fairness, or, you know, any positive behavior.

Possible Spoiler Alert:

In this one Stine tries to leave us guessing by what he's left out, and it's not a bad strategy. I thought that Carter should have just told her father much sooner: once she did that, Adam would have no power over her. Adam couldn't have turned her into test authorities without getting in trouble himself, and he had no proof. The only thing that doesn't make sense is Dan's abandoning her after killing Adam "so they wouldn't be separated." ( )
