Cross My Heart, Hope to Die (The Lying Game #5)
Ever since Sutton Mercer's murderer tricked her long-lost twin, Emma, into coming to Tucson, Emma has been trying to solve the mystery of Sutton's death. And now someone else is back in town- ...more
Full review to come - maybe.
And you're telling me I'm supposed to be surprised by the two-book extension of this series?
It would be pointless for me to tell myself I wasn't going to read this, because I am. I am a self-proclaimed Sara Shepard addict. Saying I'm going to cross this one off my to-read li ...more
It seems to me that the plot of soon-to-be-released boo ...more
2/5 I think that the "murder" was an accident in a prank pulled by Ethan that went wrong or Sutton is in a coma somewhere.
3/12 After finishing book 4, I no longer think that Ethan is the "killer." Instead I believe that he will be the "suspect" in the last book.
My latest theory;
I have been try to think of a suspect that would make scenes that is not obvious like Ethan.
My idea is Mrs. Mercer. Her first name is Kristin so their might have been a file that Emma did not notice in the file cabinet after she found Becky's. after all she had to frantically book the folder back when the nurse arrived.
Mrs. Mercer is one of the few Emma has not investigated (like most of the parents, but she is one of the important parents ...more
Sara Shepard continues cock-teasing the shit out of us with her addicting yet frustrating 'novels' that are guiltily intriguing yet for the most part just go around in circles while revealing very little.
However, I have read every single one of them despite understanding this. Just because I'm aware of an addiction, does not mean I'm capable of reasoning my way out of it.
This book wasn't too bad though, a couple more pieces of the twin puzzle were put ...more
This review contains spoilers. You’ve been warned!
Even though Pretty Little Liars is much more popular I prefer The Lying Game. It just seems more realistic and the plotline still makes sense while PLL has been dragged for way to long. How many books are there? 14? Wow. That is like worse than all those embarrassing House of Night sequels.
We start the book where we last left things. Sutton and Emma’s mum, Rebecca finally shows up and she is hard to catch. In last book we ...more
I cant wait for this book to come out! i just finished reading #4, and now, as always, i want to know what happened next.
Does anyone think they know who Sutton's killer is? thats what i want to know.
at the end of the book, i ended up making a list of possible suspects based on what we dont know about where they were the night sutton died. here it is:
Ethan (did emma ever ask where he was the night Sutton died? Sara would end up having him be the killer)
Garret (unlikely, since he...more
This was a quite good book. 'Quite' because it started a little slow IMHO. But it was really cool especially at the end. Somehow I knew that something like that would happen to Nisha. It would have been to easy to find out some real answers now, because there still is another book to come.
But my theory is very simple, and I sure many others have also thought of it. Ever since book 3 I was pretty sure Ethan was the murderer. Way too many subtle clues. And at the end of this book, it was ...more
Becky, the mother of Emma and Sutton, is in town and recognizes Emma immediately. Is it only a mother's intuition...or does she already know Sutton's gone?
I really like The Lying Game series. No, I really, really, really like The Lying Game series. Like the other instalments, Cross My Heart, Hope To Die was well-plotted, beautifully written, with strong characters. The ending most shocked me.
Who killed Sutton? ...more
1) Emma NEVER asked him where he was the night Sutton died
2) He obviously had a crush on Sutton and was kinda obsessed with her.
3) He could've hacked into Sutton's Facebook page and replied to Emma's message(Book 1) and lured her to Tucson, since he's good with computer and ...more
I think that Dr. Bannerjee my have had an affair with Becky while she was going through treatment and Nisha figured it out which would be the reason for her death, however I don't really think that he would kill his own daughter.
Mr. Chamberlain killed Sutton because she found out that he was having an affair with Becky which resulted in the twins, or Mrs. Chamberlain killed her because she found o ...more
My thoughts on the suspects:
Mr. Mercer Doubtful. Seriously, Ted Mercer killing Sutton? Why would he want to kill his granddaughter?
Ethan: Ethan could've lie ...more
Sara Shepard keeps The Lying Game series going with an endless amount of sequels to this series and absolutely no conclusion as to who killed Sutton. This book is not different from the other books in the series, generally all these books have a central plot where Emma will suspect someone killed Sutton and follow up on this. Then Sutton will regain a memory of the night she was murdered and find out that they didn’t murder Sutton.
Despite the predictable plot, t ...more
The focus in this book is Becky (view spoiler)[ the girls birth mom who is mentally instable and we find out in this book that she has another child. (hide spoiler)]
The people it hasn't really focused on as the killer are the people I am thinking it coul ...more
The Plot: Sutton Mercer has been dead for two months and while Emma has done a pretty good Sutton impersonation, she still hasn't solved her twin's murder. This time around the primary suspect is the girls' unbalanced mother Becky, who reappears on the scene in a relatively violent way AND seems to recognize that "Sutton" isn't who she says she is. Meanwhile, Emma has to deal with an annoying new classmate ...more
For starters the storyline just gets more convoluted, and at times unnecessary.
Shepard begins bringing in characters and scenarios out of nowhere and it starts to become frustrating.
I understand that this mystery is supposed to be complex but at times I feel as if some unknown person is going to show up and be the murderer. (Which would make me feel as if I wasted my time reading these books)
I generally don't have a problem with Emma but in this book I began ...more
