"Betrayal hides in what you don't see..."

As her senior year flies by on cruise control, seventeen-year-old Olivia Cole yearns for excitement—something her upscale private school no longer provides.

I had read a blurb or something for the second book a few weeks ago, and it stuck in my mind, so much that it made me want to source the first book. This was better than I thought it would be an OMG the ending was a cliffhanger and ARGH moment that reminded me of the PLL Finale. Without giving twists and secrets away, we have seventeen-year-old Olivia Cole who is studying psychology at school hence - the second window title. She has been working part-time at a supermarket where a recluse and her ...more

After a smooth glide of building gentle tension, this book suddenly shoots off into mystery pure.

Olivia is a senior and lives in a perfect bubble. Her mother is a successful psychiatrist, her father loving, she has great friends and school life is a breeze. When one of her regular customers at the grocery store, a quiet woman who always comes on Wednesdays, almost sheds tears at the register, an entire nest of secrets begins to open up. Just as the mystery gets going, an unexpected ghost returns

This seemed predictable as read the first, but that changed as i read and got involved with story. Once I got involved with the story i could not put it down.

This is the story of a girl who is a senior is high school with a pretty ordinary life, until she begins to discover that her life and family is filled with secrets that have been kept from her. Very well written and very interesting.

Interesting read; it kept me reading with the story line and I plan on reading the next book in the future.....didn't love such a cliffhanger ending. The book seemed to focus on more of the romance than the mystery. The romance was cute and the mystery kept you reading, but not sure if it was balanced well, but I guess that could be a good connection with a teenager's life. ...more

Great book. Lots of thrills. Think riding a roller coaster. You kinda dread it. You know that it is going to take you somewhere uncomfortable but a few minutes later, you are laughing and happy. As with any teenager, Liv has lots of issues. Yet, she has her best friend, a new, superhot guy and the insight and intelligence to ride the crazy coaster.

I LOVED this book. Normally I don't really like books that are realistic (I like fantasy or sci-fi), but this made me stay up all night. The love story is prime, the characters are realistic, the main character was not pathetic as most books like this are, and the plot was perfect. Erica has caught the view of a high school girl perfectly. I think this book has something for everyone.

Good book

It took awhile for me to get into the book but toward the middle and end it started to captivate me more. Now I need to read the second book to see how it ends.
