Die for Me by Amy Plum

After the tragic death of Kate’s parents, she and her sister Georgia move to Paris to live with their grandparents. Learning to adjust to a new home and dealing with her grief, Kate loses herself in books and museums. Alone and reading in a quaint little Parisian coffee house, Kate looks up and locks eyes with a handsome stranger. After a few chance meetings, Kate is plunged into his mysterious and dangerous world. Kate wrestles with the decision to follow her heart or her head. Will she give up on a chance at love all because she’s too afraid of losing someone else? Or will she throw caution to the wind and risk her safety and sanity to be with someone who could be the love of her life?

I liked this book, and at the risk of sounding like Goldilocks, this book was just right. It has the precise amount of action, romance and mystery. I loved the pace of the book, the author’s writing style, and the female protagonist. Die for Me was not too hot, not too cold: It was just right. Well, everything except for that unbelievably beautiful cover and those smoking hot revenants. They are more than right!

The concept of Die for Me is a new one for me, and honestly, it was a breath of fresh air. I went about reading this book in a completely different way than I normally do. I knew absolutely nothing about it except that it had a stunning cover. I didn’t read a single review or synopsis. I really enjoyed all the guessing I had to do at the beginning, trying to figure out everyone’s secrets.

Amy Plum is an author who I look forward to seeing more from, and I am already excited for the next Revenants book. In the words of Vincent Delacroix, “The wait will be fun, but it’s not going to be easy.”
