No Time to Die: ★★★☆☆ I enjoyed the story but found the ending to be a bit much. It came out of nowhere, going against everything we've seen from that character throughout the book.

We got a few vague clues regarding the motive, but no way to connect that to the murderer or any hints that the nice facade was just that: a facade, hiding a ton of anger and aggression. It would've been nice to see them slip up just once. And there are some issues:(view spoiler)[ 1. What are the odds that Liza would go to camp and just so happen to meet an ex-neighbour whose daughter died in a fire she started? 2. Maggie couldn't possibly know Jenny's stage fright was from the fire, unless she's able to read minds. She also knows how escaping the fire looked like and felt like from Jenny's POV. How? 3. If Arthur was the serial killer, why didn't he kill more victims while at camp? Why did he even stay there after Liza's murder???? 4. Maggie said she killed Liza, but Arthur kills Maggie as a "way of erasing Liza's death from his list." Who killed her, then? (hide spoiler)] The Deep End of Fear: ★★★★☆ This one was the stronger story in my opinion, but the ending was also a bit theatrical and cheesy. That being said, I enjoyed the romance and how it wasn't the main focus. Overall: ★★★☆☆ Simple writing and two pretty entertaining stories. I think both endings could've been written better, but it's still enjoyable and super easy to flip through. Also, Elizabeth Chandler really likes evil monologues. (view spoiler)[ And the Evil All Along trope. (hide spoiler)]

    In No Time to Die, Jenny is distraught at the recent death of her sister Liza. She decides to enroll in the drama camp that Liza was in when she died. But even though all the evidence points to a serial killer as Liza’s murderer, Jenny is starting to get the sense that’s not really what happened.

But even though all the evidence points to a serial killer as Liza’s murderer, Jenny is starting to get the sense that’s not really what happened. But setting out to find the truth on her own might be a deadly decision. In The Deep End of Fear, Kate returns to her childhood home after her father dies. She takes a job there as the tutor for a young boy named Patrick. She expects to have strange memories of her time a child there, but what she doesn’t expect is for Patrick to have a capricious imaginary friend named Ashley—who has scary similarities to Kate’s childhood friend who drowned. Kate must figure out what is really going on before it’s too late. Dark Secrets 2 contains two more murder mysteries from skilled author Chandler. As in Dark Secrets 1, Chandler’s stories here take place in or around the town of Wisteria and are filled to the brim with murder, secrets, lies, danger, and an element of the supernatural. All of this makes for a couple of very enthralling reads. Even though the gist of No Time to Die and The Deep End of Fear is extremely similar to that of Dark Secrets 1, I still thoroughly enjoyed Dark Secrets 2. Chandler has this way of drawing the reader into her stories that makes even the most comparable storylines interesting. In addition to fantastically created mysteries, Chandler always includes a bit of romance, which rarely come to fruition until the very end. Although I these romances are very sweet, it bothers me that just as the mystery is solved and the danger has passed, the heroine realizes that she is in love. The validity of these romances has always been a little iffy to me, but I can’t deny that Dark Secrets 2 as a whole is incredibly enjoyable to read. I recommend Dark Secrets 2 to those who enjoyed Dark Secrets 1 and Kissed by an Angel, both by Elizabeth Chandler, Possessed by Kate Cann, and Dark Visions by L.J. Smith. reposted from http://thebookmuncher.blogspot.com

    I enjoyed reading the second story, The Deep End of Fear. It was more exciting than the first one, No Time To Die. It was a bit draggy though in the middle. But the ending was fine. I didn't expect the twist in the end. I just felt eerie when I read the last two chapters since I had a dream about it... well, it was close to the one in the story, before I even got to that part. It was like having deja vu. Supernatural, horror, suspense, drama and love story all in one book. :D. I enjoyed reading the second story, The Deep End of Fear.

    The Deep End of Fear is a book by Elizabeth Chandler. Mary Claire Helldorfer is a children and young adult’s author. She was born in 1954, Baltimore, Maryland. The Deep End of Fear is a murder mystery, a bit paranormal. When Kate’s father dies, he requests to have a ring returned to her childhood home in Wisteria. Kate goes back to her childhood home where there was a fatal accident. She takes a job as a tutor/babysitter for a little boy named Patrick.

She was born in 1954, Baltimore, Maryland. The Deep End of Fear is a murder mystery, a bit paranormal. When Kate’s father dies, he requests to have a ring returned to her childhood home in Wisteria. Kate goes back to her childhood home where there was a fatal accident. She takes a job as a tutor/babysitter for a little boy named Patrick. She gets introduced to Patrick and he was showing her his toys when he introduced his imaginary friend, Ashley. Ashley is her deceased childhood friend. Kate tries to push away the horrible memories of the estate, Mason’s Choice. Patrick does dangerous things that 7 year old Ashley had done and told everyone “Ashley” dared him to. Patrick “plays” with Ashley, a deceased member of the Westbrooke family. Kate doesn’t expect Patrick to have an imaginary friend named Ashley, oddly similar to her dead friend years ago. Creeped out, She ignores it but things get way too unlikely to be coincidental. She realizes she’s in danger and has to figure out what's going on before it’s too late. The author makes it so that a lot of people are suspicious, so I couldn’t pinpoint who the killer was and because of that, I was surprised who was involved. The author made some people very suspicious and then threw another one in, I expected there to be one person involved but apparently not. One person was the brains of the work, someone did the actual work, and someone only did one crime, trying to poison someone. It triggered me alot when I found out who the killers were. The Westbrooke family always chase after their father’s money. They are always mean to Patrick because he’s the father’s favorite. I loved the book and I would give it a five. If you like murder and suspenseful stories this is definetely a great book. I highly recommend you to try it. This book reminds me of Natasha Preston, but her books are a bit less paranormal than The Deep End of Fear. They both are murder mysteries. My favorite parts are with Sam and Kate , Sam shares something with her that connects to Kate. Sam’s dad died in a ditch because he was investigating Ashley’s death. Kate Venereli’s mother was suspected of killing Ashley so when Sam found out about who Kate actually was he turned a bit cold to Kate. Is it believable? It is a bit unrealistic. Ashley’s cat coming back to the estate? That was a bit unrealistic. Especially the seven year old boy, Patrick. He’s lonely and has an imaginary friend, yeah but it’s creepy how his imaginary friend is the dead member of the Westbrooke family. It was kind of easy to tell who the killer is after a while because they were helping the main character which was kind of obvious. The people involved in the crime made me really mad. The twists at the end too. I kind of disliked it a bit how it was a bit unbelievable. Some parts of the story were scary but I could not put the book down. It was a good read, definitely recommended!

    This book blew me away,like the previous books in the series , i loved the author for so long time ,i always find myself like a detective ,i was for a moment puzzled ,everyone is suspicious , these four books teach me that the murderer is always the one that you don't believe and always suprise you by how and why he/she did the crime , this is the thrilling, amazing mystery that i was searching for it; for i long time . i do recommand this book for you if you are a fan of mild mysteries.

NO TIME TO DIE: this first story , jenny is gymnast and hates acting due to fright stage , she takes the decision to go to Wisteria in order to enroll in the drama camp where Liza ;her sister studied and murdered in it , while being there she was haunted with a lot of visions that were strong clues , that helped her decipher the enigmatic death of her sister , taking action , she was about to be the next victim. i loved the plot but the thing that wasn't developed as i expected is the relationship of the main character with Michael (i guess this is how his name is written i'm fimiliar with Mike hhh), it was for me insane , he loved her before seeing her (sorry!!! but this is silly); but i l still loving the story by the way . THE DEEP END OF FEAR: (i want to scream AAAAAAA!!!) this second story talks about Kate a teen girl of 17 years old that decide to go to Wisteria in order to return a ring as her father requested before dying , but by stepping in the Westbrook estate to do the task , all the horrible memories of the past come back ,the ones that she stuggles so hard to bury them , because they were associated with the death of Ashely, her best friend of childhood twelve years ago. Signed as a tutor after, of Patrick a westbrook child of 7 years old , she faced fatal events that were about to drive her to death , these events hold strong proofs and informations about the killer of Ashely about the leaving of her mother and the investigator that was flollowing them( OPSS i guess i begin making a spoilers HAHAHHAHA)...... i enjoyed this book more than the previous ones , i love the main character , the confusing dark story ,i loved that focus wasn't on the romance but on the case ,i loved Sam too .and how the friendship between him and kate in the whole story , this book worth a re_read . i enjoy the book and i highly recommand it.

The mystery of her death remains unsolved, but a supernatural mystery - and a love triangle - complicate things further. In "The Deep End of Fear", Kate returns to the Westbrook Estate where her friend Ashley drowned many years before. Tutoring the young Patrick, she starts to fear the possibility of dangerous family dynamics, and even the paranormal. Will she suffer from another loss? Or will she be the one to die this time? Both of these books are best described as enjoyable, but not particularly memorable. The atmospheres in both stories were definitely creepy and tense, which was a major strength. Overall, the characters were interesting, likeable, and made me want to keep reading. However, the second story felt way too drawn out, and at times quite boring. I appreciate the hint of romance in both stories, although the first story had a bit more romance than the second. I like that there was a paranormal or supernatural element to both mysteries, however it wasn't too intense or overpowering the "real life" mysteries that the characters faced. It was very balanced. I think that the reveal of the first book's villain, and their motives, was a bit too unbelievable for me. I also found that there were some annoying cliches, such as the whole "villain explains evil plan to the hero" trope. Overall, these books were interesting, but I'm not interested enough to keep them in my book collection. I recommend this for fans of Elizabeth Chandler's first two Dark Secrets books, and for those looking for a short mystery.

IN THE DEEP END OF FEAR After her best friend, Ashley, drowned at Westbrook Estate, Kate vowed never to return. But now, twelve years later, she is drawn back to the house and that fatal icy pond. i absolutely adored the little boy, Philip, that was centered in the mystery in this story. having worked as a nanny (a role our protagonist, Kate, fills in IN THE DEEP END OF FEAR) i connected quickly with a lot of the work Kate did. that emotional connection made it even harder to fathom the cold attitudes of Philip's family, and the circumstances surrounding Ashley's death. i didn't like the love interest in this book as much, though I never pay much mind to the love interests in Chandler's mysteries. (they don't play a huge role.) the ending was satisfying and unpredictable, if a little in-line with Chandler's typical format.

    No Time To Die: The reveal of who the killer was actually surprising because most readers assume its one character but it happens to the other, and the suspense leading up to the moment was actually really good.

The Deep End Of Fear: AGAIN, the freaking killer(s) always shock me. It was actually really surprising because it made me forget my surroundings and I screamed in Honors ELA and all my classmates looked at me, so I explained that I had just found out who the killer was and they all laughed. In this story too, the protagonist keeps pushing the love interest away until the mystery becomes solved. In this book though, I couldn't pinpoint a direct suspicion, and because of that, I was two-fourths surprised about everyone involved. THIS IS A SORT OF SPOILER, SO BEWARE: Since one was the brains behind the operation, one did the dirty work of killing Ashley, one did the dirty work of trying to hurt Kate, and one only committed one crime, trying to poison Kate. BUT STILL, I WAS TRIGGERED...

I feel like the spark between Kate and Sam were just additional recipe to spice up the story but for me, the real love story is Katie’s love for Patrick. I would love to know how their story, Katie and Patrick’s, ended but I guess the writer wanted the story to end on a romantic note. Overall, the second story got me in circles haha because surely, you’ll doubt every character.

    The plot is not bad at all. The last story really got me spooked from the beginning til the end. In total, I have read 4 of the author's stories and I can safely conclude that the beginning and plot twist are the strong points, but not the ending. All 4 stories have sucky ending. It doesn't make sense and too short. Anddd it left some matters hanging, not that it's important but still. In a way, it's like reading short stories. The plot is not bad at all.

    I loved these probably as much as I loved the first two. I would say they are an easy read and a mystery/spooky kind of book that doesn't require too much suspense and thinking on a readers behalf. I loved these probably as much as I loved the first two.

    two more excellent and engaging murder mysteries from this author, with a dark and supernatural twist. i find these highly enjoyable, and although the settings can feel a little contrived (there are very few meaningless encounters or plot points that happen just because life happens and is messy - everything leads towards and ties in directly to the story, which can sometimes feel a little too tidy. leave that aside though and accept the stories on their own merit, and these are well-written and two more excellent and engaging murder mysteries from this author, with a dark and supernatural twist. i find these highly enjoyable, and although the settings can feel a little contrived (there are very few meaningless encounters or plot points that happen just because life happens and is messy - everything leads towards and ties in directly to the story, which can sometimes feel a little too tidy. leave that aside though and accept the stories on their own merit, and these are well-written and delightfully characterised tales from a skilled storyteller

    Two more tales that will give you the creeps Here are two stories one called No Time To Die and the other one called The Deep End of Fear by Elizabeth Chandler. The first one No Time to Die starts off with Jenny Montgomery going off to drama school. Now this is weird for her because even though both her parents and sister is into acting, she is not and gets really bad stage fright when she’s on stage. Though that doesn’t stop her, for she has a reason to go. Her sister was murdered there last yea Two more tales that will give you the creeps Here are two stories one called No Time To Die and the other one called The Deep End of Fear by Elizabeth Chandler. The first one No Time to Die starts off with Jenny Montgomery going off to drama school. Now this is weird for her because even though both her parents and sister is into acting, she is not and gets really bad stage fright when she’s on stage. Though that doesn’t stop her, for she has a reason to go. Her sister was murdered there last year and Jenny feels the need to go. When she arrives there she meets everyone from all of the students, to her sister’s “ex boyfriend” Mike, to the coordinator and the director of the show. Everyone seems really nice to her, though some people are acting weird towards her. She feels that they have something to do with her sister’s murder, but has no way to prove it. Jenny continues acting and they learn that her gymnastics comes in handy for the show, though weird things start happening and Jenny thinks its her sister’s Liza ghost. Jenny continues to push on, though she also starts having weird dreams that show her her sister’s murder. She can never see who did it, but she knows that it wasn’t who they said it was. Can they catch the murdered before the lights go out on Jenny? The second one is The Deep End of Fear. This one has Kate Venerelli returning to America. Kate and her family had left that house years ago when Kate was small. She never understood why, but her father’s dying wish was that she return something to a man who lives there. Kate has a hard time getting in, but she finds out that they need a babysitter/tutor for their son and she jumps right on that. The plan was just to return the ring but she accepts the job when she hears everyone talking about her. She meets the little boy Patrick who seems alone and desolate. He shows her his toys and brings up a little girl Kate had known. Though it’s not possible because the little girl she knew died there. Kate was there and Ashley had fallen through the thing ice. Kate keeps Patrick entertained as much as she can and she takes him to hockey games. She meets the captain of the team that Patrick loves, and she instantly dislikes him. Sam is rude to Patrick, though he doesn’t see it. Patrick still idolizes him and Kate goes along with it. Though very weird things start happening in the house and Patrick keeps bringing up Ashley and Kate is wondering if Patrick really is seeing Ashley. Everyone warns Kate to get away from the house, even Sam the hockey player, but she feels she has to stay for Patrick since his father is dieing and he’s making Patrick his heir, making everyone hate him. She feels the need to protect him, but is their someone who can save her before the ice breaks? These were two very good stories, very well written and reminds me a lot of L.J. Smith. If you like the Night world series you’ll probably like these. Elizabeth Chandler has a way that brings the creepiness out of every situation. Very good book indeed. A four!!

    More like 4.5-5. I really like both of these stories, although the second one could have been all on its own. All in all I thought it was better than Dark Secrets 1-2. I could not put this one down. The first book was short but oh so sweet. Chandler is one of my favorite authors in this genre simply because I can always ALWAYS count on a great paranormal (mostly ghosts) romance with some of the best twists and turns. I didn't know who the real murderer of Liza, the main character's (Jenny) sister More like 4.5-5. I really like both of these stories, although the second one could have been all on its own. All in all I thought it was better than Dark Secrets 1-2. I could not put this one down. The first book was short but oh so sweet. Chandler is one of my favorite authors in this genre simply because I can always ALWAYS count on a great paranormal (mostly ghosts) romance with some of the best twists and turns. I didn't know who the real murderer of Liza, the main character's (Jenny) sister, was until the murderer went after Jenny. The romance was cute, although it didn't really come together until the end. The only problem I had was that all the boys were pretty dimensional, but I felt like Jenny's friends that were girls were paper thin. That's really the only problem I had with it though, besides the fact that it was too short! I wanted it to keep going. The second book was my favorite of the two, mostly because I felt like the story was more drawn out and explained and I liked the mystery and romance aspect a lot more than I did the first one. I had one problem with this one: when the names of the member of the Mason's Choice household were introduced, I felt very confused as to who was who and felt that could have been made more clear. The romance was enticing and I couldn't wait until Kate met up with Sam again. I like hockey, so the fact that he was a hockey player drew me in. The murderer of Ashley had eluded me until just before it was revealed, so Chandler kept me on my toes again. I also liked Kate's relationship with Patrick (the little boy she took care of) simply because she cared for him as if he were her own child. I couldn't believe the family ties that had been messed with in this one and how many people died. To give the last part of the list would be spoiling the end of it, but let's just say it was a few more than just Ashley. The second issue I had was my confusion as to whether there was actually a ghost or not. It was never really explained one way or the other, and that really bothered me because I wanted closure on that. If I'm missing something please let me know. This was a very enjoyable read overall. As I said the second story is my favorite, but the first one is just as good and just as intriguing. It really doesn't matter if you read Dark Secrets 1-2 because they are all short novels that have nothing to do with one another. But I would definitely suggest picking this one up and the first one as well.
