It was a relief to me, too. Back at my house, maybe we'd finally get some answers. p.52 ARC e-bookGossip Girl meets Desperate Housewives meets Lois Duncan. And really really good. This is a carefully woven tale of games people play, lies they tell and feelings that get hurt and the vengeful road that leads down. I was sucked in almost immediately and spent the whole book jumping from person to person as the suspect. And then the book ended with no real answer. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! It is a series so I guess I should have expected that. Having never read the Pretty Little Liars series, I didn't have any ideas of Shepherd's style. But now, after reading The Lying Game, I do and I'm definitely reaching for the first one of that series.
All of the characters are so well drawn that I can picture them in my head. And the whole concept of the Lying Game that Sutton and her friends play. Chilling. I really want to know more about Sutton. She is such an enigma and I feel like there is a whole lot about her that has yet to be explored. The same goes for her friends and sister. There are quite a few mysteries going on besides the bigger mystery of Sutton and I'm excited to read the next one.
