Waiting on Wednesday: Two Fall Temptations at the Start of Summer

Just as summer vacation begins, I'm going to give you two great reasons not to be sad for the inevitable return of back-to-school September. (Note: My summaries are distilled from Goodreads synopses). They're both about mystery, identity and the ticking of clocks...

Rachel died at two a.m . . . Three hours after Skyler kissed me for the first time. Forty-five minutes after she sent me her last text. 
That text is Rachel's first clue to her once-best friend Jaycee, who embarks on a search that leads to a shocking secret. Rachel’s death was no random crime, and Jaycee must figure out who to trust before she can expose the truth...
DEAD GIRLS DON'T LIE by Jennifer Shaw Wolf

Josie Byrne's life is spiraling out of control. Her parents are divorcing, her boyfriend Nick has grown distant, and her physics teacher has it in for her. When she's betrayed by the two people she trusts most, Josie thinks things can't get worse. Until she starts having dreams about a girl named Jo. Every night at the same time—3:59 a.m.  3:59 by Gretchen McNeil

Both look like perfect fall reads by a fireside to combat the inevitable eerie shivers!

3:59 is actually on my wish list! :D
The other one sounds really good too though, and I hope you get a chance to read them soon! :)
