Synopsis: "Welcome to Nightshade, California—a small town full of secrets. It’s home to the psychic Giordano sisters, who have a way of getting mixed up in mysteries. During their investigations, they run across everything from pom-pom- shaking vampires to shape-shifting boyfriends to a clue-spewing jukebox. With their psychic powers and some sisterly support, they can crack any case! There’s a gorgeous new guy at Nightshade High: Duke Sherrad, a fortune-teller claiming to have descended from Gypsies. Even though she’s psychic herself, Daisy is skeptical of Duke’s powers. But when a teacher who was the subject of one of his predictions ends up dead, she begins to wonder if Duke is the real deal after all. Maybe if Daisy can track down the teacher’s killer, she can find out the truth. The only trouble is, all signs point to the murderer being of the furry persuasion. Is Daisy any match for a werewolf? Maybe she is . . . in more ways than she bargained for!"

Wow! Dead Is A State of Mind was so good that I could hardly put it down. I started reading it on New Year's Eve and finished it a couple of hours later.
I liked this one even more than the first Dead Is book that I read.
Although Dead Is A State of Mind was good I figured out what was going on by, like, the second chapter.
It's hard to say what my favorite part of the book was because it was just so good and the characters were all so funny. Even when Daisy thought that Ryan was cheating on her was funny. When usually I don't find it funny when the MC jumps to that kind of conclusions.
But there was one part that was totally sad and I'm not going to tell you what part that was.
Out of the whole book there wasn't a single thing about it that I didn't enjoy.
Dead Is A State of Mind was definitely a great read to close out the year with and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.
Dead Is A State of Mind earns 5 out of 5 pineapples.
