****Before reading****

Even though I'm loving this series,please be the last one.

I can't take any new suspects popping up. It seems that everyone's been a suspect. Is Sutton actually dead? I hope not, but if she is, fingers crossed Ethan did it. That guy is a huge creeper.

Team Thayer!

Seven Minutes In Heaven by Sara Shepard

This was the perfect ending to an incredible series!
This series has taken me through the last 4 years of my life, and I do not regret it one bit, In-fact I wouldn't have all the memories I have now without these books. Isn't it amazing how books can do that?

I was right about who I suspected to be the murderer, but that doesn't mean I got any less scared when we found out! This book had the perfect mixture of creepy, suspense, thrill, and just everything y
Ok, my theory for the finale.... And I know it's probably way too obvious!

I think Ethan was obsessed (crazy, which is why he was in the mental ward) with Sutton when she was alive and he made up the story about going into the mental ward because of his mum. If you read the books, Ethan will often say he remembers Sutton doing or saying certain things like in the library or whatever - stuff that people wouldn't necessarily remember about her, like he stalked her. Plus, she wouldn't have hung aro
First, never go into a car with someone you know is psycho.

I hate it when series end. Never being able to read new scenes with fresh eyes featuring characters I grew to love.

But I'm glad this series has ended too. Because it ended with this glorious ending featuring everything I could have wanted. Six books are enough, even though I will forever miss this story.

Even though this book and series has faults, it breathes so much life that I don't care. I love this story. I love the writing. I feel

I came to a scary realization. The one person who we all have come to love. The one person who has a motive and opportunity to kill sutton. The one person who has the ability to change Emma's mind. The one person who can change the truth. The person is... Ethan...

Oh my god I reallllllly hope I'm wrong :(

Ok, as much as I am absolutely obsessed with this series, it's so predictable. I mean, every book is the same- THIS person is SOO undeniably the killer (even though, to an outside viewer they are obviously not) and then some epiphany occurs and then they're ruled out as a suspect. It's just frustrating how this series could have been solved 3 books ago. But I am also partly glad it wasn't, because I'm hooked. I just wish this could be out already :/ oh and if it's not the last one, I will cry.
Penny Naimsworth
For some reason, I gave this book a four stars. Why do I seem so reluctant in that rating? It's because the killer was just way too obvious. (Yes, I know what I typed in my review of book 5, but as soon as Emma had a new suspect (view spoiler) was when I knew that I was wrong (view spoiler). Pulling a PLL on us, Shepard yet again made this book a "girl suspects XXX is ...more
Jessica Gogan
The last book? We FINALLY know what happened to Sutton? Ok...

Ethan didn't do it. I really don't think that he did. Was he involved? Probably. He didn't like Sutton after the unknown Lying Game prank that no one knows what they did. Do we get to find out what happened in this book? I wanna know.

Anyway, Sutton is dead. They find her body in this book. But its the way that she died. Not who killed her. She probably committed suicide or something and she had someone help her make it look like a murd

I pre-ordered this book on my Kobo and read it in 2 hours the second I woke up this morning. The book was amazing. A great conclusion in some ways, a horrible one in other ways. This series was great. The suspense and the plot...everything was perfect. "Seven Minutes in Heaven" totally met my expectations. Sara Shepard never fails to keep you up at night with her mysteries, and this book is just another one to add to the list. You'll be bit
Danielle Stafford
I'm really hoping its not Ethan, because that is just too obvious. Although I am sure the next book is going to try and make us see relentlessly how it could be him, in the end it probably will be like all the other books and show that there was just a long line of coincidences that make him look like a killer.

Thinking about who would make it a good twist at the end, the first one who comes to mind is Mrs Mercer. Something about how insanity being passed down through the family blah blah..I kno

Okay, I got to say this was a great ending. Now this had my attention all the way through the book. I wish the rest of the series was that way. I was shocked when I found out that (view spoiler). I thought it was going to be someone else, but boy was I wrong. Happy with how this ended. Very shocked and I think this proved to be a good series in the end. Great ending to an okay book series!
Trina (Between Chapters)
Wow. Wow. I thought this was a fantastic ending to the mystery. I've started all of Sara's series, but this is the first one I've finished, so it was really great to see how she wraps up her mysteries.

The pacing of this finale was perfect. Secrets that have spanned the entire series came out into the open from literally chapter 1. She really did not keep us waiting and it was great to see the characters react to things through the whole book. The final big reveal occurred at about the 3/4 mark,

So like I couldn't wait for my library copy to come in, so I downloaded this book and read it and I'm so angry at who it was but the ending made me cry like a baby, and I don't know how many stars to give this stupid books and I'm glad I don't have to read any more Lying Game books.

And now, more coherently: (view spoiler)
Pre-reading review:

Hurry the eff up and be released already!

Definitely gonna be mega disappointed if Ethan is the killer since its so obvious. We need a serious 'holy crap I did NOT see that coming!' moment to finish the series after having to wade through so much obviousness already.

Post-reading review:

This was a massively disappointing end to a series that started out so promising. The first portion started out with the same old tired structure that all the previous books had- Emma finds a cl

I am so glad that this series didn't have the chance to become the zombie that Pretty Little Liars has turned into. I planned on reading the latest entry in that series before starting the last two Lying Game books, but I only made it through the first page of the prolog before putting it down. This series reminds me of the reason I still stick with these Sara Shepard novels. She really knows how to write a conclusion.

At the beginning, it definitely seems like we're going to spend the novel inve
By far, book #6 was my favorite one in The Lying Game series. A perfect ending for the whole story. Everything made perfect sense in the end.

P.s.: I was right about the killer!

Finally, after six long, grueling and pointless books, we have solved Sutton's murder. It is quite obvious and typical but nonetheless worth a read. I devoured this book in about two days or so.
