CORINA’S REVIEW

 

After last years big success of One of Us Is Lying I couldn’t wait for the author’s next book to be released.

If you love mysteries, and you enjoy contemporary YA novels – this book is the right one for you. It had everything I liked about this genre. Lots of twists and turns that kept me guessing from beginning to end. Some YA drama and many likable characters. And a wonderful crisp and vibrant writing style.

Two Can Keep a Secret was told through both Ellery and Malcolm’s POV.

Both characters were down to earth, likable and added their own flair to the story. Ellery was new to town and had this knack of asking all kinds of questions. After her aunt went missing she really got into the true crime subject and it showed. Her entire persona was slightly mistrustful and skeptical – which worked well for a mystery. Malcolm, on the other hand was slightly dorky, but very kind and a perfect partner in crime. Interestingly enough, both were connected to the town’s macabre past in different ways. And both had reasons to be vary about the new missing person’s case.

I would never compare this mystery with one written by Robert Galbraith or such. But for me it delivered exactly what I was looking for. An entertaining read, that kept me guessing, and made my car rides so much more enjoyable. The writing was excellent, and easily sucked me in. Dual narration made the entire listening experience pleasant and easy. Additionally the plot was very well executed, like I mentioned above I didn’t know who did what until the end.

I didn’t personally love how the climax was resolved, it felt kind of sudden and not as exciting as it could have been. But other than that I adored this YA mystery/suspense novel, and can’t wait for the next book by Karen M. McManus to be released.

BLURB

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.

The town is picture-perfect, but it’s hiding secrets. And before school even begins for Ellery, someone has declared open season on homecoming, promising to make it as dangerous as it was five years ago. Then, almost as if to prove it, another girl goes missing.

Ellery knows all about secrets. Her mother has them; her grandmother does too. And the longer she’s in Echo Ridge, the clearer it becomes that everyone there is hiding something. The thing is, secrets are dangerous–and most people aren’t good at keeping them. Which is why in Echo Ridge, it’s safest to keep your secrets to yourself.
