    One thought on “Jillian Cade: (Fake) Paranormal Investigator”

    1. Jillian Cade : (Fake) Paranormal Investigator, took me completely by surprise. I don't know what it was that I expected, but it wasn't that. The beginning started off pretty slow but once it picked up, I didn't want to put it down. This is Supernatural for the YA crowd. Throw in monsters, some romance, and a broody main character, and voilà, you get Jillian! I'm excited to see that there will be another book. The farther along I got into the book, the more I worried about how everything would e [...]

    2. Jillian Cade: (Fake) Paranormal Investigator, with its Veronica Mars meets Supernatural vibes in the summary, immediately reeled me in. It sounded like it would be an entertaining read with a cute romance. The book wasn't without its lows for me, but overall, this was a fun debut novel and I think this series itself could become epic with more character, plot and world development.The book, as you might have guessed, is centered around Jillian Cade, who in her father's absence decides to run his [...]

    3. *I received an e-arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.I didn’t know much about this book when I went into it. I got an email from Soho Teen with four options. There was one that I was definitely interested in. I wasn’t very familiar with Jillian Cade: (Fake) Paranormal Investigator, but I saw the words “Buffy meets Veronica Mars” and that’s all I needed to know. I picked this one up on an impulse and now I’m glad I made that decision!I’ve never seen Buffy, but I LOVE V [...]

    4. **I received this book for free from (Publisher) via (Edelweiss) in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.***Genre* Young Adult, Paranormal*Rating* 3.0*My Thoughts*Jillian Cade: (Fake) Paranormal Investigator is apparently the first novel in what I hope is at least a trilogy. Having read both the Gallagher Girls and Veronica Mars, I can honestly say that this story swings more towards Veronica Mars. Not unlike Veronica, 17-year old [...]

    5. Jillian's mother is dead and her father disappeared even before that happened. He says he's off on work, but Jillian doesn't care. A junior in high school she's been left to all but fend for herself. Umbra Investigations is Jillian's lifeline. Her means of making money and (sometimes) paying bills. Her firm is focused on investigating the weird and supernatural, even if Jillian herself doesn't believe. What matters is that her clients do and as long as they're willing to pay, she's determined to [...]

    6. JILLIAN CADE: (FAKE) PARANORMAL INVESTIGATOR is Jen Klein's first YA novel, but she's already a seasoned writer due to her work with hit TV show Grey's Anatomy. The eponymous Jillian Cade knows all about the paranormal due to her father. She uses the information she's picked up from him (in addition to some common sense) to run Umbra Investigations. After all, it isn't too hard to solve a haunting that isn't actually happening. When a classmate hires Jillian to find a missing person, she realize [...]

    7. Received an ARC from Edelweiss. This is the story about Jillian- a tough, snarky 11th grader who is pretty much living on her own while her paranormal guru/con man father is traveling the world looking for something or other. To earn $, she has a "detective business" where she tricks people into thinking she's gotten rid of their pesky paranormal problems. Her sidekick is in this business is her geeky cousin Norbert (yes, that's his name- he's pretty adorable). On the 1st day of school, she meet [...]

    8. I wish I had liked this one more. Teenage girl detective - takes after her dad but - here's the twist. She takes paranormal cases. And she has someone who has reached out and needs her services (well, her dad's but he's out of town and she needs the money). But there's also a new boy a school - and he is constantly tripping her up and throwing himself into everything she's doing so she is forced to partner up and let him help her.I think the biggest problem I had was that I didn't like Jillian. [...]

    9. This book reads like a rough-on-the-edges twist on Veronica Mars. Fun and snarky, it's got interesting bits of information embedded in acharmingnarrative with a dorky sidekick and an attractive partner. A proper review to come soon.

    10. This Heroine Is Just RightI like snarky, edgy heroines. Whether there's a quest, or detective story, or space opera, or urban fantasy, or school daze farce - it doesn't matter as long as she has attitude and a way with one-liners. But, there's a need for balance. Sometimes that snarky character can drift into so much angst, anger and drama that the tale stops being fun and turns into a mean slog. Or, the heroine transforms into a soggy sop under the tender ministrations of some dreamboat borrowe [...]

    11. When I was accepted to review Jen Klein’s debut YA novel Jillian Cade: (Fake) Paranormal Investigator, I was so pleased because it sounded right up my alley. In fact, it sounded very Veronica Mars-ish, what with the whole teen investigator thing, but with one small difference (and no, I don’t mean no Backup) in that Jillian’s actually a fraud. She dupes people into thinking they have actual paranormal activity going on in their houses (or, actually THEY think they have paranormal activity [...]

    12. Julian Cade is a marvelous main character. Her mother dead and an absentee father, Julian is a perfect example of teen identity crises. The strong-willed, opinionated, high school junior is in charge of her own life and has created a persona meant to alienate all people coming into contact with her. At least that is what she believes. With bills to pay and a need to eat, Julian, helped by her younger cousin Norbert, is running Umbra, her father's paranormal investigation agency. Of course, Julia [...]

    13. The book, "Jillian Cade, Fake Paranormal Investigator" by Jen Klein is the genre of mystery. The main character, Jillian Cade is a junior in high school and she is making a living off of pretending to be a paranormal investigator. Sky Ramsey, the new boy in school, helps Jillian with cases to investigate and he also likes Jillian. Norbert is Jillian's cousin and her partner with the paranormal investigations. This book is a 4.5/5 stars because at the end of every chapter is a cliffhanger and you [...]

    14. This is a great start to a series by Jen Klein. I listened to the audio book, but then couldn't wait, and quickly picked up the book for the last few chapters. Jillian is a great character. You don't necessarily like parts of her personality, but in the end, you can see that she is starting to grow and understand things more. She was very realistic in terms of her personality. Sky, was a little off for me. It wasn't until the end and I actually got to see why he acted a certain way, did it make [...]

    15. I received a copy of this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.I was initially taken by this for the irony of it all: Jillian doesn't believe in the paranormal (even though she runs a paranormal investigation business)d then she gets a case that may actually be paranormal. It's fantastic irony. I just wanted to know more about it.And it was cute. Jillian is 100% sassy and totally as a defense mechanism. Her home life is utter crap, so she copes by looking scary and backsassing any [...]

    16. I picked this book up on a whim at the library because the title intrigued me. I AM BEYOND GLAD THAT I DID. While I took a little bit longer reading this than I would have liked, I absolutely loved it. The characters were well-rounded and fun, and the story was witty. Jen Klein is a talented writer, one I'll have to be on the lookout for now. For the first 100 pages or so you think you know where the story is headed, but THEN IT 180'S AND OH MY GOSH. THE WORLD BUILDING IS JUST GETTING STARTED, T [...]

    17. This entire "review" is a bit of a spoiler, so it's all being hidden. My friends probably wouldn't mind because I doubt they'll read this particular book, but random users who might stumble across this are likely to feel differently.(view spoiler)[This started out being exactly the book I needed to fill the Veronica Mars-shaped hole in my life. And then it turns out that the paranormal is real and Jillian is the Abomination and I don't know why that rankled so much. I think I would have been o [...]

    18. Book #78 Read in 2015Jillian Cade, Fake Paranormal Investigator by Jen Klein (YA)Jillian Cade has taken over her father's paranormal investigation business while he's off traveling the world. Pretty ambitious for a high schooler, but Jillian is not your typical high school girl (I kept picturing Trubel from NBC's TV show Grimm). Jillian is savvy, tough and intelligent. She knows she needs to keep the money coming in so she can survive on her own. Then the next school year starts and she meets ne [...]

    19. My friend read this and told me about it. I asked to borrow it, but she'd already bought it for me as a gift! Jen Klein writes for Grey's Anatomy, but it is a show I have never watched so it didn't influence my perspective of the book. I loved this book!! it had all the elements that make me a happy reader: YA, romance, twists and turns, cliffhangers, fantasy, magical realism, and the occult. I would tell myself one chapter and find myself reading five. This book isn't high-brow lit (just look a [...]

    20. Supernatural YA can be a hit-or-miss proposition, but Jen Klein has done a wonderful job with this story about an independent high school student investigating the "supernatural," and what happens when the supernatural finally catches up with her. Really enjoyable and well-drawn, and I def didn't see the major plot twist coming. Looking forward to reading more novels from this talented writer.

    21. 3.5 stars. I ended up loving this near the end, but it took awhile for it to pick up. Will definitely be reading book two. Review forthcoming.

    22. I might read this book because i've seen some "Veronica Mars meets.()" and some "Buffy" on reviews. I got to check it out.

    23. More two stars than three. Very lacking. Thought this would be a standalone - should be a standalone, considering the characters won't keep you engaged for long

    24. The A-plot of this book is the girl going all weak-kneed over a guy who stalks her, blackmails her, and lies to her constantly.The B-plot is about her paranormal investigation business, sorta.

    25. This was a very cute and fun book, full of twists and turns that I should have seen coming but didn't. It ended very abruptly, though, so I really hope there are plans for a sequel.

    26. Full review at bronzelock619/2017/03/jillian-cade-fake-paranormalml.I was quite surprised by how much I like this book. It was a thoroughly entertaining read. Jillian was the kind of sassy, tough girl that I like to read about. Who wouldn't adore a book heroine that kneed a guy in the groin for trying to get close to her. Well, probably only the guy in question that got kneed in the first place. She was intelligent, sassy, and witty, so reading about her was so much fun. Here are some quotes fro [...]
