Also reviewed on my blog, The Vintage Bookworm

I know this is sad, but even though I'm on the third book in this series, I STILL have trouble trying to separate the characters and happenings in the TV show and the characters and happenings in the books. I mean, they are mostly completely different. But I do love both.

Sara Shepard really knows how to write a good mystery. She keeps it creepy, but enjoyable and glamorous. If that makes sense. I love both Pretty Little Liars and this series. TV show and books. She's a fantastic story teller and definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Once again, as with ALL of Sara's books, they give you a suspect and make everything point to them. You start believing it's actually them, but then BAM you're left back at step one by the end of the book. I don't want to go too much into detail about that because I don't want to spoil the book. But gosh....

I'd love to sit here and discuss theories of who the murderer might be and who is blackmailing Emma into keeping quiet about Sutton and herself, but I don't want to give anything away. But if you've read the first three books and would like to discuss, feel free to email me!

I really like Emma. I've always liked Emma better. I mean, c'mon, she's the nice twin. But, you know, it is refreshing to hear Sutton's thought every now and again to spice things up. Which I LOVE the added memories in this book. It really sheds some light on things and makes you able to see her side of what happened.

You also get to know more about Thayer in this book which I liked, though I'm a bit creeped out by the book Thayer sometimes. But hey, that's good!

Overall, this was a great addition to the series and I'm very excited for the next! I definitely liked this one better than the second one. I hope I'll like the next one even better than this one. If you haven't checked out anything by Sara yet, please do. She may sound like a fluff writer, and parts of that may be true, but she sure knows how to keep you guessing and her books have great mystery.
