Excerpt from Book:
School is over, and now Stacey, her boyfriend Jacob, and their friends have rented a beach cottage for the summer. No more stress, secrets, or stalkers. But then Stacey’s nightmares return—predicting the cruel death of Clara, a mysterious girl with a secret.
And now Jacob, the only one who understands Stacey’s magic, is keeping secrets, too. Is he betraying Stacey’s trust or protecting her from revenge and tragedy?
Silver Is for Secrets is 3rd novel of “Blue Is for Nightmares series“. Stacey has finished her high school days and now it’s summertime. She, her new boyfriend – Jacob, her x-boyfriend Chad, Chad’s girlfriend – Drea, PJ and Amber rent a beach cottage for the summer.
Before too long, Stacey starts having nightmares again about a girl they meet named Clara. Even though Drea and Amber doesn’t like Clara because of her boy-flirty attitude, Stacey tries her hardest to help Clara. Clara is so weird, secretive, complex and flirts with every possible guys including Jacob, Chad and PJ. Yet Stacey can’t just stand by and watch Clara die, but her dreams aren’t always clear. This time, they don’t warn her about horrific outcome, and a disaster beyond her worst nightmares that will haunt her for life, that she never even saw coming. In the end, Clara ends up shocking everyone by doing something bad.
Some good lines from book:
- What we offer up to the universe comes back to us threefold
- It isn’t unbelievably awkward to see your ex with someone else. But it’s a completely different thing when your ex is dating with his ex and that ex just happens to be your best friend.
- Thinking is way overrated. I prefer to just feel.
- Keeping secrets doesn’t bring people together, it only pulls them apart.
- Jealousy is the sweetest revenge.
I love cover of this book. It’s so appealing. Story is weak at some places and looks like dragged unwanted but end is superb. I enjoyed last 100 pages so much. Worth to buy and read.
Note: I received a copy of book from Marina Fernandes [JAICO Publishing House] and I am very much thankful to her to share such a amazing novel.

You will feel the most significant experience, you will become ecstatic if you can feel that the whole existence needs you, that you will be missed, that if you are not here there will be a gap, you will be missed. You are not unnecessary, you are not superfluous; you have tremendous significance. Hence, love yourself. You are needed as much as the trees, as the flowers, as the birds, as the sun, as the moon, as the stars. You have to be here and you have a right to be the way you are.
