Something very strange starts happening in Nightshade the summer that the eldest Giordano sister, Rose, gets a job working at Dr. Franken's research laboratory. People are starting to see double. Doppelgangers of Nightshade residents are popping up all over town. Daisy, Rose and Poppy think it's a coincidence, until the rumors start that their father, who disappeared several years ago, has been spotted in town. Meanwhile, Daisy's beau, Ryan is spending all of his time training for football,and like the other guys on the team, he's grown enormous almost overnight. Samantha Devereux's boyfriend's neck has doubled in size since school ended. Could the football players be resorting to extreme measures to win? Between summer jobs, sugar rushes, and beach parties, the Giordano girls get to the bottom of these mysteries and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer fun n mystery for the Psychic Sisters Just as good as the first two. There's more mystery going on in this one then new romance. The focus turns more to the absent father who makes a sudden appearance again and turns everything in the Giordano family upside down. The first two books in this series were my favorite but this is a strong follower. I hope more is to come from this author.

Perez's smart and sassy style soars."-Mary E. Pearson, author of the Jenna Fox Chronicles"[A] quick, lively romp. . . . Teens looking for a breezy read will find plenty to like here."- Booklist "This super supernatural murder mystery is sassy, romantic, and spooky-fun!"-Cynthia Leitich Smith, author of Tantalize "Light romance and a paranormal plot are more tongue-in-cheek than scary, making this series a good introduction to the genre for younger readers."- Booklist "Breezy style and comic-book plot. . . . Fun."- Kirkus "
