    Last year, I read ONE OF US IS LYING and loved it. It was a YA mystery/thriller by this author, so when I learned she was publishing a new book, I placed a hold on the library right away. This is a YA thriller/mystery that takes place in the small town of Echo Ridge. The narrator is...

    McManus does it again! Certainly no sophomore slump with Two Can Keep a Secret! I absolutely loved this story of a town with dark secrets that are seemingly resurfacing again. Twins Ezra and Ellery are staying with their Nana while their mother is doing a stint in rehab - however, they...

    Not as good as One of Us is Lying, but super fast paced and engaging plot. I've guessed the ending this time, but still enjoyed it a lot. Tbh 3.5 rounded up to 4, as I think it's definitely a book more than 3 stars in this genre. Would definitely read from McManus again. ...

    4.5 stars. With Two Can Keep a Secret , her follow-up to the excellent One of Us is Lying (see my review), Karen M. McManus proves she's not a flash-in-the-pan talent, but rather a pretty terrific storyteller, one who is tremendously skilled at depicting the complex behaviors of ...

    After last years big success ofOne of Us Is LyingI couldn't wait for the author's next book to be released. If you love mysteries, and you enjoy contemporary YA novels - this book is the right one for you. It had everything I liked about this genre. Lots of twists and turns that...

    Hmm. I appreciate that I didn't predict the end at all, but... I just didn't really care? The ONE thing I liked about McManus's first book was her ability to keep me on the edge of my seat, and that's the reason I gave her another shot and picked this up. Unfortunately, this didn't cap...

    the saying goes that ?two can keep a secret if one of them is dead,? but what isnt mentioned is that secrets like to be shared. its in their very nature and karen mcmanus definitely understands that. this book is full of secrets just dying to get out! and whilst i didnt think th...

    Ok so this was EXCELLENT and exactly what I want a thriller to be! Usually I'm tentative about thrillers and One of Us Is Lying, while I admire it for being super-famous, it didn't click so much for me. However this one?! Miiiiine. It had the small town vibes, an autumn-y Halloween aes...

    alright, alright, alright..... This may come as a slight surprise to some folks who already know that I DNFed McManus' previous book, One of Us Is Lying, but I'm going to give this one a rating of 4 stars. All three of them look like the kind of teenagers you'd find on a CW s...

    All of Fright Farm's success is based on how much people love to be scared in a controlled environment. There's something deeply satisfying about confronting a monster and escaping unscathed. Real monsters aren't anything like that. They don't let go." 3.5 ? I did enjoy Karen...

    4 stars! Every single time I read the title of this book I had the PLL theme song running through my head. Gotta say, McManus's sophmore novel knocked it out of the park! She is a officially an author I will be revisiting again and again in the future. If only she would wri...

    Overall, I found this much less eye-roll-worthy than ONE OF US IS LYING. The author still is too much in love with stereotypes? I mean, homecoming queens dying? Please. But I felt more engaged somehow with only two narrators, a boy and a girl (Ellery and Malcolm), love interests to e...

    This book has fallen victim to the ?Loved the last book so I had high expectations? syndrome. I thought One of Us Is Lying was great, Two Can Keep a Secret was just okay. I expect these books to be cheesy ? but this one was maybe too cheesy. The dialogue and the characters ...

    3.5 stars. I think I can safely say I loved One Of Us Is Lying much more than this one. It was a 5 star read for me. I also enjoyed reading Two Can Keep A Secret. I think McManus is a very good writer. She builds suspense very well and makes you read the book without being able to pu...

    3.5 Stars! This was a fair and enjoyable read.I have no intentions of picking up One Of Us Is Lying, but I decided to give Two Can Keep A Secret a chance. It was not the most notable young adult thriller on the market, but I enjoyed my time reading. CW: murder, grief, talk of subst...

    What'd I do today? Oh you know, just isolated myself and sat on my bed staring sulkily at the wall because existing in general is unbearable when one of your most anticipated releases disappoints you! I can't believe I'm saying this but I think Colleen Hoover's Verity put me in a pe...

    "If I believed in omens, this would be a bad one." This is a difficult review to write, as I was so taken with McManus's debut last year, but as an adult reader I didn't feel her sophomore effort lived up to the hype I had created in my head. Obviously this is no one's fault but my ...

    Here's the thing: I'm not necessarily the biggest fan of YA thrillers as an overall genre, but there's something about Karen McManus's work that pulls me in and keeps me frantically flipping pages until the end. Definitely part of it is the characters, who are given just as much weight...

    When I finished One of Us Is Lying I immediately wanted to get my hands on Karen McManus's next book. I was hyped and my expectations were huge. Silly me. Maybe if I hadn't psyched myself up so much I wouldn't feel so severely disappointed as I do right now. Ellery and her twin b...
