- I expected this book to be much better. I normally do like books about psychics and such, but Death and the Girl Next Door wasn't the best around.
- The concept was okay. To me, the story was a little too cheesy and predictable. I wish that the author would've added less romance and cheesy talking and more drama and history about who Lorelei was and is.
- I rate it a 3.5/5 stars because for the boringness it created at points, but the characters weren't too bad.
