Ellery’s never been to Echo Ridge, but she’s heard all about it. It’s where her aunt went missing at age sixteen, 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 want to believe.
And somebody would kill to keep it hidden.
You can find my Mini Spoiler Free Review for One of Us is Lying by Karen M McManus HERE!
This author is on my auto-buy list now. Her books are just so good! She has a way of throwing a thousand little clues at you throughout the book but you don’t even realise 90% of them are important. I think I changed my mind about 60 times as to who the murderer was. Which is exactly what you want in a Thriller/Mystery!
The world building is awesome in this book. I felt like I was sitting in Echo Ridge watching this all unfold.
Tell me and I forget
Teach me and I may remember
Involve me and I learn
I have one word for this plot. Followed by 3 secondary words for this book.
What the fuck?
I really enjoyed Ellery, she was super smart but also knew her flaws and accepted when they came through. I also love that she is a twin. Not very often do you see a book with a main character that is a twin. I also enjoyed that we only follow one of the twins POV and then another character which was a little unexpected. Ezra, Ellery’s twin was awesome too. He was super loyal, kind and thoughtful. He would always be there when Ellery needed him and also their other friends. He was trusting and caring and I just loved him. ALSO he is on the LGBT+ spectrum, which is awesome!!!
Ezra watches them leave with a bemused expression, then turns to me. “I have a really strong feeling that on Wednesdays, they wear pink.”
Malcolm is our other MC
Next we have Mia, who I also love and is bisexual! Can we have a story from her and Ezra’s POV please? That would be awesome too! I really enjoyed Mia’s humour & sarcasm. I saw myself in her a lot as we are both bisexual, loyal to friends & sarcastic as hell!
Mia’s taken shit for years from guys like Kyle and Theo who think bisexual equals threesome.
