Two Can Keep a Secret
Two Can Keep a Secret | Karen M. Mcmanus
The New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying, Karen M. McManus, is back with an all-new, page-turning mystery perfect for fans of Riverdale! 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's 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. Praise for Karen M. McManus' One of Us Is Lying An EW.com Best YA Book of the Year Selection A Buzzfeed Best YA Book of the Year Selection A Popcrush Best Young Adult Book of the Year Selection A New York Public Library's Best Book for Teens Selection A CBC Teen Choice Book Award Nominee A Bustle Best Young Adult Book of May 2017 A Goodreads Best Young Adult Book of the Year Nominee A YALSA Best Fiction Book Nominee A YALSA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers "You'll tear through this juicy, super-fun (if murder can ever be fun?) thriller."--Bustle "A whodunit with a Breakfast Club twist...following four unique voices on a chase to find the killer, this one will keep you guessing until the very, very end."--Popcrush "Twisty plotting, breakneck pacing and intriguing characterisation add up to an exciting, single-sitting thrillerish treat."--The Guardian "This is no ordinary whodunit...surprising and relevant."--USA Today

4✨ I was very engaged throughout this story. They throw a lot of potentials at you. Is it one killer or are there several? It kept me guessing until the very end with small secrets as well.

When it comes to reading, July hasn't been very good to me. Yet. One of the only books I really enjoyed so far, is this one. I almost got addicted to it. McManus wrote another YA thriller, that's really thrilling - I couldn't stop reading, and yes, this one is my favourite book by her so far. She kept me on asking myself what happened, making up theories, looking out for whoever has a motive.

Decompressing from a looong work day with some candlelight reading🕯📖

It's taking me a really long time to get through this one. I've been jumping in and out for weeks, pretty much only gravitating towards it when I'm between other books. It's a pretty good mystery though. Idk why I can't fully invest.

Echo Ridge is a town on the Canadian border and had its first tragic loss in 1995 when high school senior Sarah Corcoran vanished. Then homecoming queen Lacey Kilduff was found dead in Murderland Halloween park. Two dead HomecomingQueens. 5 years later. Is the killer back? Echo Ridge is not a good place to be popular. Kept me guessing until the very end. Characters are very believable. Recommended.

Wow! Loved it! I never guessed the ending. I also love when 2 different mysteries are going on simultaneously, keeps me more interested. I thought this story was believable, but even if it wasn't, that's the whole point of fiction thriller! It doesn't have to be real or believable! My favorite part about reading is being able to escape to worlds that are far fetched and soo unlike the real world. If I wanted that I could turn on the news! 5/5stars

Booklover22 I can‘t wait to read this book ☺️ 13mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️ My fundamental issue with thrillers is that they‘re often too unrealistic, but try to pass as believable. There‘s way too much weird - and convenient - shit going down in Echo Ridge, buuut I still needed to know wtf happened to those beautiful homecoming queens. I didn‘t love the story, but McManus is good at keeping those pages turning.

November's #BookSpinBingo list

I wasn‘t as successful in October as I would have hoped. But I'm trying to pressure myself a little less and allow myself to just be okay with what I am enjoying in the moment.

#mentalhealthawareness #selfcare #tbr

TheAromaofBooks Glad to have you along for another round!! No pressure is the way to go!! I don't want people to be stressed by this challenge, so just read what you can with no worries. I've found having five free spaces (instead of titles for 21-25) has helped ease some of the pressure, since it means if I get sidetracked onto other reads, I still get “credit“ on my bingo board!! Anyway, good luck!! 1y

“Missing girls don‘t come home in Echo Ridge.”

Second book by Karen McManus, and again, I‘m impressed. She has a knack for suspense and twist endings. I love how she ties all of the loose ends together throughout the story, without giving away the end. Definitely a good read!

This was my first audiobook (ever) so it was a little different experience for me. It‘s a change from having the book in your hands.

Amazing writing and loved this story. I love every book Karen McManus has written! I didn‘t predict it at all but it was so well written and kept me in the edge of my seat that I kept making predictions even though each one was incorrect. Quick read. Loved it! I also loved the narrators (Sophie Amoss and Kirby Heyborne)

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