Two Can Keep A Secret by Karen McManus

About the book:

A perfect town is hiding secrets. 
Two teenagers are dead. Two murders unsolved. And a killer who claims to be coming back. 

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.
_____

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 them to Echo Ridge’s upper crust, but it could all change when mysterious threats around town hint that a killer plans to strike again.

And the return of Malcolm’s brother doesn’t help matters. But his return is just a coincidence… isn’t it?

Ellery and Malcolm both know it’s hard to let go when you don’t have closure.

Then another girl disappears.

As they race to unravel what happened, they realise every secret has layers in Echo Ridge. The truth might be closer to home than either of them want to believe.ย 

And somebody would kill to keep it hidden.

My thoughts:

I loved One Of Us Is Lying when I read it so I was super excited to be sent a copy of Two Can Keep A Secret to review.

Ellery and her brother move to Echo Ridge to live with their grandmother while their mother goes to rehab. Ellery’s aunt went missing from Echo Ridge when she was 16, and now they return 5 years after another girl was murdered.

Another girl disappears, and Ellery was one of the last people to see her alive. What follows is a twisty turny narrative with so many secrets and layers that it is difficult to reconcile the truth out of any of it.

I really enjoyed Two Can Keep A Secret, not as much as One Of Us Is Lying, but it definitely kept me hooked because the characters kept pulling me back into the narrative.

Recommended for sure!
