Mystique by Shari Arnold

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Shari Arnold, and NetGalley.
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Only Bauer Grant can pull off gorgeous while dead. But staying dead is another thing entirely. When he wakes up at his own funeral, the town of Mystique calls it a miracle, until it happens again. Something is bringing the residents of Mystique back to life, but what? Presley Caine finds herself caught up in the mystery when Bauer asks her to visit him. Presley can’t figure out why the most popular guy in school is so drawn to her. And when Bauer is kidnapped soon after, she looks to Bauer’s brooding best friend Sam, whose dad works for the powerful Mystique military base, for answers. In her quest to discover the truth, Presley’s relationship with Sam deepens, her feelings for Bauer are tested, and it becomes clear that her own mysterious past is somehow connected to these strange events. But is she strong enough to handle the truth when it is finally revealed?

Mystique by Shari Arnold

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Mystique “I think they’re drawn to you,”

This was an okay paranormal/sci-fi story, but the pace was a little slow for me.

Presley seemed to take people coming back from the dead in her stride, but didn’t ask enough questions for me. She also seemed fairly happy to string along two boys at once, which wasn’t the best idea!

The storyline was about these people coming back from the dead, and the mystery behind it, but the pace was a bit too slow. It seemed to take forever to get any answers whatsoever, and this spoiled the story a bit for me. I’d have liked a little bit more info earlier on rather than having to wait to find out anything at all.
There was a bit of romance in this, but be warned; there was a love triangle.

The ending to this was a bit of a cliff-hanger, and I wasn’t even aware that this was the first book of a series!

6 out of 10
