Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins

Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins
Rebel Belle #2
Published by Putnam Juvenile on April 7, 2015

Summary: "Life is almost back to normal for Harper Price. The Ephors have been silent after their deadly attack at Cotillion months ago, and best friend Bee has returned after a mysterious disappearance. Now Harper can return her focus to the important things in life: school, canoodling with David, her nemesis-turned-ward-slash-boyfie, and even competing in the Miss Pine Grove pageant.

Unfortunately, supernatural chores are never done. The Ephors have decided they’d rather train David than kill him. The catch: Harper has to come along for the ride, but she can’t stay David’s Paladin unless she undergoes an ancient trial that will either kill her . . . or connect her to David for life."  -- From Goodreads

I love the characters from this series!  They feel so Southern, you're just waiting for them to say "ya'll" or something similar.  Harper is the classic Type-A control freak, who thinks she knows what everyone's best interests are.  In this book, things change when everyone has a different plan of action for "what's best".  Harper is also thrown into a Paladin trial, and if she fails it will end with her death.  The trials weren't really that dangerous, and that aspect was ended before it really began.  

Overall, this was a good, solid book for the Rebel Belle series.  It was a typical second novel, which left the readers with a lot more questions than answers.  There is no official word about a third book yet, but I hope there will be to tie up some of the loose threads.

Disclosure: I received a digital galley of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
