Echo Ridge is small-town America. Ellery's never been there, but she's heard all about it. Her aunt went missing there at age seventeen. And only five years ago, a homecoming queen put the town on the map when she was killed. Now Ellery has to move there to live with a grandmother she barely knows.

ok but can they keep it as faithfully as the whole state of Tennessee when Hannah Montana told them she was actually Miley Stewart and they told her sure we’re keeping your secret and the secret never got out? Doubtful

THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD OMG. My review would just be endless fangirling, so I'll keep it short and say that Karen McManus is a plot twist genius and you must read this one.

Here's the thing: I'm not necessarily the biggest fan of YA thrillers as an overall genre, but there's something about Karen McManus's work that pulls me in and keeps me frantically flipping pages until the end. Definitely part of it is the characters, who are given just as much weight as the plot. But there's also how the overall tone strikes an uncanny balance between dark and light, seriousness and levity, respect and irreverence, that is so exactly the teenage way.

Also: while I loved Ellery

McManus does it again! Certainly no sophomore slump with Two Can Keep a Secret! I absolutely loved this story of a town with dark secrets that are seemingly resurfacing again. Twins Ezra and Ellery are staying with their Nana while their mother is doing a stint in rehab - however, they don’t know much about their mother’s hometown, where her twin sister was killed years before and when they move to the town and hear of other murders, they start asking questions, but what happens when they hear t ...more

Wow! Tight writing, intriguing characters, and so many plot twists you end up a pretzel at the end of the book. Compelling and at times reminding me of Scream this was a fabulous read.
And that last line will haunt you for ages.

I NEED this right now! One of Us Is Lying was one of my favorite books of 2017 and now we get to kick off 2019 with this devilishly delightful sounding book.

SO GOOD. I read so many thrillers that it’s rare I find one that really keeps me guessing, but this one did. Emery and Malcolm are great characters, the mystery is layered and compelling, and the suspense only goes up and up and up.

I thought that with 3 separate murders/disappearances introduced in the first 2 chapters it would be too much story for the length of the book, I was wrong.

I'm pretty sure I suspected everyone at least once throughout the book and I was still guessing until pretty much the very end.

Another excellent read from the author of One of Us Is Lying.

I hated One of Us is Lying but I want to give the author another chance. Not that many YA mystery/thriller authors out there and it was her debut. We shall see.

I love Karen McManus's books because they ALWAYS KEEP ME GUESSING. My brain was constantly churning as I flew through the pages, coming up with theories and potential suspects. I did guess the suspect about halfway through and was so proud of myself when I found out I was right! This is an engrossing, fast-paced, twisty-turny read that is quickly becoming a hallmark for Karen's work, and I am so here for it!

Super fun, albeit predictable, and easily munched up in one sitting (it just took me three hours). Reminded me of those trashy teen murder mysteries I loved in the 90s.

I think I enjoyed this book more than One Of Us Is Lying, which I didn’t think was possible! McManus kept me guessing until quite literally the last page, and her settings/characters are always really well done and so absorbing. I can’t wait for the next one!

Many thanks to NetGalley and the Publisher for providing me with an eARC of this title for review. All opinions are my own.

Holy cats, was this a good one. All the stars to this fast-paced mystery/thriller (almost slasher flick-feeling) roller coaster of a book. I picked this up because I wanted to see what McManus would do after her debut One of Us Is Lying , which is a good book on its own, but in my opinion, this is where she has really started to shine as an author. The story is tightly packe
