The plot line is very similar to other thriller books and that's one of my issue with thrillers in general. I still like them and I do enjoy reading them. While the plot is very common, it still had a sense of mystery and I didn't know what was to come! As far as romance, this is a great series that realistically portrays romance.
The romance does not takeover the book, just like romance shouldn't take over someone's life. Stacey and Chase's relationship is also rocky. I actually like this because most YA books have forever romances, where the love interest is always the love interest. I also didn't really like them together in the first place. I'm kind of shipping Stacey and Jacob As I said, this is thriller candy. I enjoy reading these books, but they are not favorites of mine. This book has the common thriller plot, with a paranormal twist, which I did like, but didn't wow me.
I do recommend continuing this series. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here.

This book was alright. Not quite as good as the first in my opinion, but okay enough. There are some parts in the story This book was alright.
There are some parts in the story where I just find myself incredibly bored and I want nothing more than for it to be finished. It leaves me frustrated. The story as usual was filled with mystery and keeps you guessing as to just what the clues mean until the last minute. However I found I did like Jacob, and I look forward to seeing how his relationship with Stacey progresses. I think Drea and Chad should be together, they seem good for one another. May 09, Sally rated it it was amazing. What would you do if one of your friends has really bad nightmares and suffering from that all night?
Stacey Brown is the one who has really bad nightmares and can predict the future. A year before, Stacey Brown had saved her best friend, Drea, from a death through the nightmares. Now, she is having nightmares again about something. One day, she meet guy named Jacob. And he said he is from Colorado and having nightmares about Stacey so he moved to here, where Stacey lives, to save her.
First tim What would you do if one of your friends has really bad nightmares and suffering from that all night? Jacob is really interesting character because he was the one who saved Stacey and can understand her because of their nightmares. I like Stacey but if I were Stacey, I would think about my nightmares joyfully. Laurie Stolarz did a great job on writing story in interesting way and little mysterious but I hope Jacob has more part to him than Stacey.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries and magic. This book is for all ages. Genre of this book is realistic fiction and mystery. New character, Jacob is new and he is really interesting character. And second, if you read Blue is for Nightmares, you can understand this book more easily.http://gatsbynewhomes.com/the-new-deputy-in-town-mills.php
White Is for Magic
Aug 01, Sonia rated it did not like it Shelves: review-d. This is one of the few books where I just said to myself "ok, that's it. I give up. I stumbled accross the third book of the series Silver Is for Secrets months ago, not knowing it was part of a series and I loved it.

I even cried at the end of it and I don't cry that easily. So I decided I might aswell give the entire series a try. Worst idea I've ever had. The first book was OK, I'll give Stolarz this, the storyline was exciting, the characters were not the most inter Ugh. The first book was OK, I'll give Stolarz this, the storyline was exciting, the characters were not the most interesting but were funny and kinda likeable , it was full of suspense etc. The second book just ruined it with a storyline just a little too close to the first book, and characters with terrible personalities.
I can't review the entire book since a I didn't finish it and b I don't particularly enjoy reviewing a book I didn't like but I'll just add that if you really want to read this series you might aswell skip this book.

Gives a lot of interesting details about spells and so separates itself from other teen books with an unusually gifted teenager.
Loved the inclusion of Jacob. The book wraps you up in its mystery so that you're racing to get to the end, just like the first one. The killer's easier to pick out in this one than in the first book, though.

The one thing I have a beef with is that being a Christian, I hate seeing God's name uncapitalized. If an author doesn't believe in God and doesn't wan Great book. If an author doesn't believe in God and doesn't want to offend readers, I think the author should have just written "oh my gosh" instead.
Then again, I guess most people would figure Christians wouldn't be reading a book about magic in the first place One word of advice: don't eat anything while reading this book! I did just that when I was beginning it and was grossed out by her describing how she puked and wipes the "spooge" off.
There is a heck of a lot of vomiting going on in this book! Sep 24, Allison rated it really liked it. I read Blue is for Nightares like year ago. I've been wanting to get ahold of these books but haven't been able to. Finally I picked it up yesterday and started reading it. This book was amazing.

I wasn't sure how I was going to manage with it being so long ago having read the frst book, but I found no problems. Anything I may have forgotten was mentioned in this book and I wasn't feeling lost. I still think Stacy is a "basic white girl" name though. It just makes me laugh. This series is per I read Blue is for Nightares like year ago. This series is perfect to read right around October because it's the right amont of creepy and weird.
I'm in love with this series so far, though. I love trying to solve the mystery just as much as Stacy is throughout the book. Though I was pleasantly surprised and it was who me I thought it would be. Mar 08, Rebecca rated it it was ok. The first book of the series, Blue is for Nightmares, was okay. I found this novel to be basically a rehash of the first one, in terms of plot and character growth. Most of it dragged along and I found myself wanting to skip entire sections, particularly the extreme detail the author put into Stacey's New Age rituals.
I suppose the book would be more appealing to junior high school students who also have an interest in Wicca. The ending was so obvious that I ended up skimming over it - yes, even The first book of the series, Blue is for Nightmares, was okay. The ending was so obvious that I ended up skimming over it - yes, even during the climax. Needless to say, this is the last book from this series that I'll be reading.

I wasn't expecting much, but it was disappointing to find that something with what sounded like an interesting premise turned out to be about as dull and forgettable as the protagonist's name, Stacey Brown. May 25, Theresa Mayott rated it it was ok.

I was really hoping this would be better then the first but the author just slapped some new characters in a reused the plot from the first. The whole dating the best-friends ex boyfriend thing was just as annoying as it was in the first book, seriously what friend does that!? And the mystery person who is tormenting stacey was stupid. Why the hell make the stalker someone random who's really not even in the book?
