What Dex does believe in is making money and in Perry he sees a viable opportunity: create a ghost-hunting show on YouTube that would rival anything you'd see on TV and watch the dollars roll in.But creating and filming a ghost-hunting show isn't easy when there are actual ghosts haunting them-and then some.

I can't believe that I read the whole book in one day! I would actually give this about 3.5 stars. I felt a little mislead by the title "Experiment in Terror". I thought that it would be a very scary book. But for the reader, it really was not very scary. Just a basic ghost story.

What I enjoyed about the book was the main character, Perry. She is 22 years old, still lives with her parents, and trying to find her place in the world. Her family was interesting too, especially her younger sister, Ada. I liked that at 15 she already had a successful blog about fashion.

I didn't really like, Dex, the man Perry gets involved with during her ghost hunt. He is a little too sarcastic for my liking. And he may or may not be telling the truth. He is a self admitted liar. He sends mixed messages about his attraction to Perry, at times flirting, at other times ignoring, or talking about his gorgeous girlfriend, Jen. And yet Perry finds herself more and more attracted to him as the book progresses.

There is a creepy clown lady that keeps showing up. Apparently only Perry and Dex can see her. She has mysterious proclamations for Perry, about how she and Dex need to help each other, and their work is not done.

This book was fun to read. It is the first in a series, about Dex and Perry and their ghost hunting webisodes. I plan on reading the other books in the series, in part to see if Dex ever turns into a better man, and to find out what secrets he is hiding. ( )

Don't let the star rating fool you. Part of why I couldn't go higher is that half of the book annoyed me. 1st book syndrome to some extent, and it was a bit angsty when not into the creepy bits. Also, the whole "bad body image" was beaten to death. BUT, the creepy bits were brilliantly creepy, and I LOVE the premise. And, Dex is also fantastic. You can see where that's going...eventually. In the mean time, I think this series has amazing potential and I will absolutely be reading on! ( )

I really enjoyed reading this book and I'm curious to see what happens next. Though if you're looking for romance, this book isn't for you. It is however funny and interesting with potential romance in the future. ( )

I'm on the fence about this. I really liked Perry. She is odd and she owns it. She has tried to be a good sister, daughter, employee, but none of those things make her happy. But, this certainly isn't a romance. Like, at all. Dex, the 'hero' has a super hot girlfriend. And he calls Perry "kiddo". Perry has a crush on him, but that is it. I have read that it becomes more romantic, but right now, its not. And frankly, I don't even like Dex that much. ( )

Loved the character Perry, she reminds me of myself. This was a great novel. It had bits of everything, romance, horror, laughter, intrigue. But what I loved about this is that no one thing over powered another. It's a great mix and made an exciting story, that I'll certainly be continuing with. ( )
