    *Note if you haven't read the first book in the series & don't want to encounter spoilers, stop reading* Stevie Bell loves Ellingham Academy and the mystery that drew her to the school in the first place. But while she was trying to solve it, a classmate of hers died instead. St...

    This one hit the spot in all the right ways. The first book felt a little unfinished for me, but this one fleshed out the mysteries, gave us answers, and set up the mysteries for the next book. All in all a really great read. ...

    This took a while to really pick up, but it was entertaining. I really like the characters and that helped with the slower parts. We also got a big part of the mysteries revealed, and obviously the book ended on a cliffhanger like the other one (which is a shame because this time I act...

    I didn't realize I missed the dry yet sarcastic humor of this series until I started this book. The snark was well done and the mystery is one I need more of now. ...

    3.5 stars. The second book in this historical/contemporary, mystery/thriller reinforced my opinion that this is really one big book that has been split into three, rather than three separate books in a series. They don?t work that well independently. What was great about this i...

    This is bullshit. I cannot stand by another cliffhanger ending, and an author who thinks it?s okay to manipulate their readership into buying another book to find out what happens. This whole series screams ?CASH GRAB!?, and I?m done. I should have been done after book one (...

    you know that feeling when you misremember how you felt about a book, potentially romanticising it, because you swear the story was just that good?? i think i did that with ?truly devious? because i went into this expecting it to be a five star read. and maybe thats my fault. i sho...

    *4.5 stars* Wowowow. This was a fantastic sequel, and I think it improved a lot on the minor pacing issues I had with the first book. There?s a tension throughout THE VANISHING STAIR that made it almost impossible to stop reading. And the ending???? Excuse me while I scream for th...

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. THIS IS AS GOOD AS YOU ARE HOPING. Stevie is still great, Ellingham Academy is still the best school ever, murder is still happening, but NOW IT IS PROPERLY FALL so I want to live in this book EVEN MORE than the first one. (Oh, but the mystery, you ask - sure! The my...

    "(...)Nothing compares to a good book. A book gives you everything, it gives you a window to others soul, other worlds. The world is a door, books are the key." 5-star reading I can't believe that I have to wait another year for the next book!!!! I really loved this one, we...

    This book lost review stars for yet another flipping cliffhanger! Nope. I am done. Was hesitant to start this one because of the last bleeping cliffhanger, but thought I'd be generous. Not falling into that trap again. A series is one thing. A cliffhanger is nothing more than blata...

    "You want to solve crimes, Stevie? You can't act like you're smarter than everyone around you and do it on your own. That's how people get hurt." Ahhh another great mystery plot-twisty read *u* I'm so glad I reread Truly Devious before this one because there are PLENTY of characters...

    I NEED ANSWERS!!!!! I was going to give this book only 4 stars before my head spins from everything that made up the last one hundred pages. I feel like I am left high and dry in a very very good way. And the next book won't come out until next year so I guess, the torture begins no...

    Even though they've only been in my life for a couple months the truly devious books have quickly turned into my comfort reads. I know they aren't perfect. Some of the characters are extremely one dimensional, there's an insane amount of filler chapters and often these books leave more...
