so good

What. A. Twist. So the person that appeared to be behind her back the whole time was just spinning an elaborate web of lies and secrets. There are so many tiny things that I didn't pick up on, that were fully present but mentioned almost like afterthoughts at parts. I have to admit Sutton's ending was great though. Not overly dramatic or cheesy, but just perfect in both the sense and timing. Apparently there are novellas for this series, which I would recommend reading even though I haven't actually read them. I just think that there is a lot of potential in them, and some background filler would be nice. 5/5 stars

I liked every single book. parts of the ending wasn't much of a surprise to me but I didn't see some things coming (don't worry no spoilers here). Every book left you having to read the next it never really dried up or got boring. Would recommend to anyone, especially series lovers.

A good finish to the series that leaves everything tied up, but doesn't glance over the difficulties at the end.

That was an absolutely amazing series, I'm so upset about that ending! I cried, and had to re-read two Harry Potter's and the third twilight, and I'm still so SAD!!!!! If that had happened to me, I swear, I'd commit suicide, oh my God

the series itself was amazing. when u compare it to the show (which is why I wanted to read it) everything is sooo different. the sisters never met. not to mention the killer itself changing. but ill admit by the start of this book you had a feeling who the killer was going to end up being.

Emma Paxton has tried everything to find out who killed her twin sister, Sutton Mercer, forcing Emma to take her place. She's ruled out Sutton's friends, family, and true love. Emma had received a chilling note after Nisha Banerjee had called her desperately one night - before she'd died - threatening her friends' and family's lives. One day, Sutton's body is found. The police realize that Emma is not who she's been pretending to be for the past few months - and she's the number one suspect on their list for Sutton's murder. Emma has to find out who killed her sister before she ends up behind bars, and the true killer gets away. But... who else could the killer be? And what had Nisha wanted to tell her so desperately before she'd been murdered?
