Summary (from Goodreads):
“My friends and I used to play lying games.
Now my twin sister is living one.
When I was alive, my family seemed picture-perfect. My adoptive parents adored me, and my little sister, Laurel, copied my every move. But now that my long-lost twin, Emma, has taken my place to solve my murder, we’re both learning just how flawed my family really is.
Laurel is shooting Emma nasty looks and sneaking around with my ex-boyfriend. And it turns out my parents are keeping a huge secret–could it be the reason I’m dead?
How far would they go to keep the truth buried? No one can harm me now, but Emma is still fair game. And if she’s not careful, she’ll end up buried, too. . . .
From Sara Shepard, the #1 “New York Times” bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars books, comes a riveting series about secrets, lies, and killer consequences.”
This (and her other series, Pretty Little Liars) is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. I think there are two books left in the series, and while part of me is sad to see it go, most of me wonders how we’re going to get through another two books. We’re running out of potential suspects!
Even so, there was a pretty big secret spilled in this novel (one that I didn’t see coming) and the repercussions from that will be able to get us through another book easily.
I’m even more excited to read the next (and I think final) Pretty Little Liars book. I think I do prefer that to this series, although I go back and forth on that with pretty much every book.
If you’re looking for a fun, suspenseful series that’s a total beach read (or fun for Halloween if you don’t want something too scary) absolutely check this out.
