My Review:

I really enjoyed this second book in the Delta Girls series. 

Starting about a month or so after the events of book 1, we see this story from  Serena's point of view focusing her aspect of the sisters joint psychic talent , hearing the future. 

When studious Serena is paired up with another set of twins for a Science Presentation, she seizes the opportunity to learn more about the Delta waves that she believes cause her and her sisters abilities as well as well as learning that her abilities separate from her sisters are developing as well.

When she starts hearing voices whilst working on the presentation at the twins house, she realises that they are voices that she has heard in one of her sisters' joint connections and that can not only help the twins with their problem but maybe also find love along the way.

Whilst I did enjoy book one, I felt like the story in this book flowed better.  In book one, I felt like I could almost see the hand of the author moving certain chess pieces around to direct the story in the right direction where as this one, it seemed a lot more subtle this time and the story seem to flow much better on its own.

I love the idea of this series and I love the connection between the sisters and while it felt a little manufactured at the beginning of the series, I feel like the author is now hitting her stride as she slowly fleshes out each sister out more an more each story and I looking forward to each individual story to learn more about each of the sisters.  I also feel like the premise of the joint connections was also developed more in this book and each sister starts to learn about their abilities both together and apart.

I liked the way and the pace that the relationship between Serena and Damon developed and felt they were really sweet together and I also really  liked the dynamics between Serena, Damon and Lara and the way they interacted.

There is also some development in the over all series arc n regards to this sisters father as we find out a little bit more of the mystery but also end up with more questions, I think this arc is shaping up nicely for the rest of the series.

Overall I found this a very sweet and fun read with its own  enjoyable story separate to the overall series arc and I am greatly looking forward to reading the rest of this series. 

 If you enjoy paranormal YA with touch of romance and mystery, then this is for you.

I give this book 3 1/2 stars

About The Book:

Sound (The Delta Girls #2) by Juliet Madison

Five extraordinary sisters discover that they each have a unique talent, an extra-sensory perception that enables them to see what others can't. It makes them incredible, it puts them in danger, and it brings them closer to learning the secrets that have haunted them their entire lives. These are the Delta Girls.

Serena and her sisters read a private letter their father wrote to their mother, revealing a clue about his disappearance that they never knew about before. But as they struggle to gain further insight through their sensory visions, trying to solve the mystery continues to prove elusive.

The Delta Girls try to move on, balancing their supernatural abilities with the daily trials of being teenagers. Studious Serena teams with the classroom outcast, Lara, and her charming brother, Damon, for a school science project. They end up studying more than they bargained for, though, when strange noises come from rooms in Lara and Damon s house. There are voices, but only Serena, with her special powers, can hear them. This is until the trio experiment with Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) and are able to record and hear them on the computer.

Bringing in her extraordinary sisters to help, Serena must figure out who the voices belong to and what they want if she is to have a chance at stopping an impending tragedy before it s too late.
