even better than what came before: more exciting, with richer characters and a stronger final-act twist. . . .  This is a murder-mystery, and a damn good one, the town of Echo Ridge steeped in an irresistible menace, the questions at the heart of the novel turning darker and deeper with each new revelation. That’s what should rightly make this another smash best-seller." —EW

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Review
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 14, 2019
I read One Of Us Is Lying last year and loved it so much! I adored the characters and the story kept me reading well into the night. So I had high hopes for Two Can Keep A Secret and it did not disappoint!

I don’t usually read thrillers but wow this book was amazing! I read this book in a day and I just could not put it down! Like her first book it kept me guessing right until the end and the plot twists were so good and I did not see them coming.

I loved the complex web that she created making it difficult to trust any information we were given. This book felt darker than One of Us is Lying too. There was some truly eerie moments that gave it a spooky feel although it’s not quite horror.

There were quite a lot of characters in the book that made it a little confusing at first to keep track at first but as the story progressed it became clear who each person was. This book is just filled with characters who aren’t as they seem and I loved that no-one is above suspicion.

The story is told from two points of view, Ellery who is new to the town and Malcolm who has lived there his whole life. It was interesting seeing the story and other characters from both their perspectives and the contrast of Ellery who is seeing everything with fresh eyes and Malcolm who has history with these characters and is quite cynical because of the circumstances of how he has had to live growing up.

“I should probably preface this by saying...I think about crime a lot. Like, an abnormal amount. I get that. It's sort of a problem. So you have to take what I say with a grain of salt, because I'm just this...naturally suspicious person, I guess.”

Ellery is so curious about everything and constantly wants to dig deeper to find the truth and the secrets. So going to live with her grandma in a town full of secrets was like a dream come true for Ellery. She is fuelled by the fact that her aunt went missing there and it got her interested in true crime and the need to find the truth even if it puts her in danger. I loved that unlike a lot of protagonists, who go rushing in without thinking things through, Ellery does think about the information she is given and how trustworthy it is. I also loved her relationship with her brother and how they got on so well. It’s nice to see good sibling relationships in books.

Seeing how Malcolm had to live with all the controversy that surrounded him and his family it was so nice to see how kind he was and a total geek and I loved him! He had a wonderful friendship with Mia where they help and look out for each other and it was great to see how Ezra fit in so well with Mia and that helped Ellery become friends with them too. I loved how awkward he was around Ellery and that despite being called handsome by both Ellery and Brooke, he isn’t egotistical and big headed. He has trust issues and every reason to doubt people close to him but still sees the best in people and will try to make excuses for them, especially when it comes to murder.

This book is fast paced and has lots of tension which makes you want to read, just one more chapter, and even the side stories are wonderfully woven into the main story. I really loved this book and if you enjoyed One of Us is Lying or thrillers then I highly recommend this book!
