Hi Book lovers! Vicci again,
I love a good YA read, but I also love to get my teeth into a good Thriller, so this one was killing two birds with one stone.
Why did I pick it up? – This is the author of One of Us is Lying, a great YA book that I really enjoyed last year, so I grabbed this one as soon as I could.
Two Can Keep a Secret By: Karen McManus Narrated by: Sophie Amoss, Kirby Heyborne Length: 10 hrs and 6 mins Unabridged Audiobook Release date: 10-01-19 Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd
This was a great little Thriller that kept me on my toes, and thinking “It was him…NO it was her…NO it was them..NO, who the hell is it?”
Ellery and her twin brother Ezra are going to live with their grandmother, while their mother is away in Rehab, Echo Ridge is their mothers hometown and this is the twins first time there.
The twins soon find that the town is seeped in secrets and lies, and it also seems that girls seem to go missing. 5 years ago a girl went missing and was found murdered, this is not the first time this has happened int this town, and it seems like history is going to start repeating itself again!
Ellery is a True Crime nut, and things just don’t seem right to her.
They did a fantastic job narrating this book and kept me on my toes throughout.
About the Book
Ellery’s never been to Echo Ridge, but she’s heard all about it. It’s where her aunt went missing at age 16, never to return. Where a homecoming queen’s murder five years ago made national news. And where Ellery now has to live with a grandmother she barely knows, after her failed-actress mother lands in rehab. No one knows what happened to either girl, and Ellery’s family is still haunted by their loss.
Malcolm grew up in the shadow of the homecoming queen’s death. His older brother was the prime suspect and left Echo Ridge in disgrace. His mother’s remarriage vaulted her and Malcolm into Echo Ridge’s upper crust, but their new status grows shaky when mysterious threats around town hint that a killer plans to strike again. No one has forgotten Malcolm’s brother – and nobody trusts him when he suddenly returns to town.
Ellery and Malcolm both know it’s hard to let go when you don’t have closure. Then another girl disappears, and Ellery and Malcolm were the last people to see her alive. As they race to unravel what happened, they realize every secret has layers in Echo Ridge. The truth might be closer to home than either of them wants to believe.
And somebody would kill to keep it hidden.
