There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
We have two POVs: Ellery and Malcolm. Ellery's aunt went missing in Echo Ridge and Malcolm's brother was suspected of murdering his girlfriend who was in the same year as Ellery's aunt.
There's no crappy teenage drama in this. It is really well written. If you liked the author's first book 'One of us is lying', then you'll like this one two.
P.S.: Blue spray painted edges!

One of us is lying is by far one of the best books ever. BuT This is so boring I have had to force myself to get to the end. It is like one of those point horror books from the 80s
Sorry but after so much anticipation for the release of this book I am disappointed. It is just another teen horror with no real guidance or believable storyline. I am still trying to understand the twins life before they went to stay with the grandma they never knew. Too much giving snipbits but never expanding on them.
I haven't found hardly any twists either. Sorry but I wouldnt get to excited.
I loved Ellery - her relationship with Ezra (and how he supported her yay!), her obsession with true crime, and the way she isn’t sure who to trust. I also like that she isn’t outright distrustful, and that it comes across why she struggles to trust people. She wants to, she just struggles with it. I really liked that detail.
She’s also a great main character, and I really connected with her. Her need to know what happened and her belief that it will improve her life was infectious.
Malcolm was a little harder to connect to - you sort of see that with his brother too - he doesn’t connect easily to the other people in the book either. He’s also not a great main character in that he’s definitely not convinced that he wants to know. I get that without him, we would have some really useful information, but I didn’t feel he quite added enough to the story. But honestly? That’s my only niggle.
The mystery was great too - I only figured it out right before the characters did! And I loved the police involvement here too. I won’t say why cause it heads towards spoilers, but it’s great to see what we learn about them at the end. Plus Ellery’s interaction with one of them is really fun.
I also love that the town has a scary theme park! So creepy and random! 😂
This is definitely worth the 4.5 stars I’m giving it and is definitely waving the flag for YA mysteries and thrillers. More mysteries please!
I don’t usually read thrillers but wow this book was amazing! I read this book in a day and I just could not put it down! Like her first book it kept me guessing right until the end and the plot twists were so good and I did not see them coming.
I loved the complex web that she created making it difficult to trust any information we were given. This book felt darker than One of Us is Lying too. There was some truly eerie moments that gave it a spooky feel although it’s not quite horror.
There were quite a lot of characters in the book that made it a little confusing at first to keep track at first but as the story progressed it became clear who each person was. This book is just filled with characters who aren’t as they seem and I loved that no-one is above suspicion.
The story is told from two points of view, Ellery who is new to the town and Malcolm who has lived there his whole life. It was interesting seeing the story and other characters from both their perspectives and the contrast of Ellery who is seeing everything with fresh eyes and Malcolm who has history with these characters and is quite cynical because of the circumstances of how he has had to live growing up.
“I should probably preface this by saying...I think about crime a lot. Like, an abnormal amount. I get that. It's sort of a problem. So you have to take what I say with a grain of salt, because I'm just this...naturally suspicious person, I guess.”
Ellery is so curious about everything and constantly wants to dig deeper to find the truth and the secrets. So going to live with her grandma in a town full of secrets was like a dream come true for Ellery. She is fuelled by the fact that her aunt went missing there and it got her interested in true crime and the need to find the truth even if it puts her in danger. I loved that unlike a lot of protagonists, who go rushing in without thinking things through, Ellery does think about the information she is given and how trustworthy it is. I also loved her relationship with her brother and how they got on so well. It’s nice to see good sibling relationships in books.
Seeing how Malcolm had to live with all the controversy that surrounded him and his family it was so nice to see how kind he was and a total geek and I loved him! He had a wonderful friendship with Mia where they help and look out for each other and it was great to see how Ezra fit in so well with Mia and that helped Ellery become friends with them too. I loved how awkward he was around Ellery and that despite being called handsome by both Ellery and Brooke, he isn’t egotistical and big headed. He has trust issues and every reason to doubt people close to him but still sees the best in people and will try to make excuses for them, especially when it comes to murder.
This book is fast paced and has lots of tension which makes you want to read, just one more chapter, and even the side stories are wonderfully woven into the main story. I really loved this book and if you enjoyed One of Us is Lying or thrillers then I highly recommend this book!
This was twisty, sharp and clever. I thought there were little "tells" throughout the story to try and put us off, and I was right about who was behind the crimes, but it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the book. I'm a sucker for a good YA thriller anyway, but throw in twins and a horror-themed theme park and I couldn't fault it really.
Deducting one star purely because I found it difficult to keep track of the timeline of Sarah's story and Lacey's story, and found it confusing to remember the three generations of townsfolk and who fit in where. I also didn't think Sadie was very deep as a character and some of the things she said didn't make sense to me. But apart from that, I really enjoyed this.
I read this author's book 'One of Us is Lying' in 2017 and I remember thinking it was a pretty good read. This one is okay, but I don't think it's as good. Maybe I've read too many of these type of books, but I could see the twists coming. Overall it was a quick, entertaining read but it was a tad predictable. 3.5 stars
