Venn and Daisy by Roxanne Hunter (Reviewed by Melissa)

   In book three of the series, Venn and Daisy, Roxanne Hunter introduces a few more characters to the cast. Chelsea in the grand-daughter of Jessie, the daughter to Maria and "Kid" and the sister of Gabe, the little boy who Venn escaped to save in book two. Also introduced is Terrence, the mentor and neighbor to Gabe. Things take another wrong turn for Jessie and her family when Chelsea's ex-boyfriend is murdered. Chelsea wakes up at the scene to find blood everywhere and she can not remember a thing.

   At this point the reader has realized that Chelsea has a split personality disorder, just like her grandmother, except her other personality, Daisy, is not a murder. It becomes more clear further into the book why Daisy is there. A very childlike personality, bordering on annoying according to Venn, Daisy is Chelsea's alternate persona which she assumes to protect her from Michael. Michael is a twisted murder who enjoys torturing women.

   After the ex-boyfriend is found dead, a set-up by Michael, Chelsea is sent for observation at the same hospital that Jessie/Venn reside in. Venn is very unhappy with Daisy for allowing Chelsea to end up in the hospital, something he asked her NOT to do. Through a series of therapy sessions with a doctor not related to the family, a few murders at the hospital and some arguments with Chelsea's family, the reader is able to uncover the reasons for Chelsea's personality disorder.

   Will Chelsea return to her former self, removing Daisy from the equation? Will they be able to escape the clutches of Michael? Is Daisy really as innocent, albeit annoying, as she seems? I guess you'll have to pick up your own copy to find out! I have it on good authority that there will be even more books in this series, so stay tuned!

       I was not paid for this review.The book itself was gifted to me, and that's all there is to it :)) My opinion was in no way swayed, This review is how I truly feel. Thank you for reading, have a great day! Curl up with a good book next chance you get.-Melissa
