The weird history between grandmother, her grandson, and ex-husband; the coincidence of being adopted in that exact family; main character's "special" looks, and "the trip" in which she met the "old friends" made me lose credibility.
Also, I'm not a fan of supernatural but I ignored that fact while reading.
Despite that, I liked it. This story has many good twists and turns which I enjoyed. It's unique. A quick reading. I wanted for it...more
Her choppy, quick, style of writing is something to get used to, but after ploughing through books filled with descriptive, tedious dialogue, this was a breath of fresh air. I though...more

Als Megan von ihrer Großmutter die Aufforderung erhält, in den Ferien einige Zeit lang bei ihr zu wohnen, ist sie erst einmal abgeneigt, denn eigentlich kennt sie ihre Großmutter garnicht und ihre Familie hat auch nur wenig Kontakt zu ihr. Trotzdem lässt sie sich von ihren Eltern überreden hinzufahren und macht sich auf zum Landsitz ihrer Oma: Scarborough House. Dort angekommen trifft sie nicht gerade auf Zustimmung, weder bei ihrer eigenen Großmutter, noch bei ihrem Cousin Matt, der lan...more
i liked the nested quality of the Scarborough house replica, though. not sure why [and I should, considering that nested things have been a theme in my academic life of late:], except that maybe the idea of our lives being only a game by another’s perspective a...more
Seconde série de l'auteur Elizabeth Chandler, Les Secrets De Wisteria se révèle être une lecture très divertissante et prenante, alors que personnellement, je ne m'y attendais pas.
Je vous assure qu'au début, je me disais que ce roman serait tout simplement une lecture "passe temps", sympathique, mais sans plus... Je m'étais lourdement trompé ! Ce livre est très agréable à lire, et une fois que l'on a pénétré dans son univers, il est dif...more
Both of these books were extremely quick reads. They were fast-paced, mysterious, and actually quite creepy!
Legacy of Lies, the first book in this bind-up, was originally published in 2000, and Don't Tell, the second book, was published in 2001. Keeping that in mind, the writing was different than what I'm used to. However, I will be reviewing it as normal.
Both of the plots we...more
Legacy of Lies focuses on Megan. She was adopted by her parents and she has younger brothers. Her maternal grandmother, Helen, basically disowned Megan's mom because of the choices she made when she was younger, mainly marrying a black man. Talk about major racism. Helen had very high expectations and Megan's mother disappointed her.
Out of no where, her grandmother invites her to Wisteria and stresses that it is important. Right about this time Megan is havi...more

I chose to read the novel, “Legacy of Lies” by Elizabeth Chandler for this terms reading assignment. The main character Megan is invited to stay at her grandmother’s house in Maryland. However, her grandmother is bitter towards her, as is her cousin Matt who lives with the grandmother, for a reason unknown to Megan. It is unraveled as the novel progresses that in a past life there was a love triangle between Matt, Megan and the grandmother. Throu...more

Megan has more weird things happening to her since staying at Scarborough manor. She seeks information around town and when she finds out some oddly interesting information, she takes action.

I bought this book in the bind-up with the second book in the series, and was only mainly drawn to it by it's size (perfect for inbetween the long books) and it's cheap price.
But I ended up being pleasantly surprised by what I read. I adore nothing more than the sweet book set in some sort of mysterious town full of secrets, and well that is this book.
The storyline was full of surprises, twists and turns, and not too complex. It was perfectly paced,...more
