My Review:

Casey is an average teenage girl except for one thing; she eye witnessed the brutal death of her father. After rescuing her sister from a troubling situation, they were in a collision when another driver hit Casey’s car head on, resulting in a nasty accident and the death of her sister.  A few months after recuperating from her injuries, Casey begins to receive cryptic text messages from an unknown sender. People close to Casey are winding up dead.  The twist and turns have readers wondering if Casey is being haunted or if she is the killer.

I think Andre did a great job creating suspense around the mysterious text messages. While I had a few hunches on whom I thought could be harassing Casey, they were all wrong. Andre led me on a windy and thrilling road throughout the story and didn’t stop until the very end. I feel that the commentary between Casey and the sender of the texts could have been more frightening, but Andre made up for that with the gruesome death scenes.

My Review:

In Tea With Death, Joel M. Andre writes about an encounter between a man and Death. This man has a terrifying motive behind his tea date with Death and is prepared to face the consequences of his request.

I love the concept of meeting with Death and attempting to discover truths about the unknown to humans, such as death and afterlife. I would have liked for the dialogue between the man and Death to be darker to match the man’s inner darkness.
