I have no idea why I paid for and read this book. I didn't like the first book in the series and found the second one to be just okay. I have been enjoying the TV show based on the books, but it really has very little in common with the books other than the name and the fact that there are twins separated at birth.

As I mentioned in my review of The Lying Game, I have a problem with the supernatural aspect of the series. It seems like a really thin plot device to have the "ghost" of Sutton follow Emma around and randomly remember things. It is a complete stretch that she only selectively remembers things and of course, does not remember who killed her. I expect she won't until book 8

I won't spoil this book but it follow the exact same formula as the second book. Exactly. Just fill in the blanks for each book. Emma suspects _____ of killing Sutton. Several things happen which lead Emma to believe that _____ definitely killed Sutton. Dead Sutton "remembers" something that makes it seem like ____ killed her. Turns out that Emma misread the clues and _____ is innocent and dead Sutton finally remembers the entire scene and realizes ______ didn't kill her.

Meanwhile Emma has several encounters with her families where she slips up and is afraid they will figure out she isn't Sutton.

Like many of Sara Shepard's books, this doesn't feel like a book. It feels like a filler episode in a TV series - you know the ones where the characters are in the same place at the end as they were in the beginning b/c nothing really happened? Yes, it is like that.

I liked the first book in this series it was a fun and entertaining read. But I have gotten frustrated with the way this author drags out the story. Nothing really happened in the 2 book and in my opinion it was really where the first book should of left off. This 3rd book is too much the same. We get a small amount of new details only to learn absolutely nothing new about Sutton's killer and there's an awful lot of filler that adds nothing to the story line.

There were several times the author could of started to bring things together and tie up loose ends, but I'm starting to think she's more interested in turning out book after book and boosting her sales then putting out a good and interesting story. For example I've noticed she did this with the PLL series as well. 10 books in that series and it was always something; new characters being added and new information that hadn't been introduced till later on. It got pretty ridiculous. I couldn't finish the series because frankly I got bored. I have watched the PPL & Lying Game series on ABC Family. To my surprise I actually liked their portrayal of the characters and story much much better. Neither series follows the books too closely they did A LOT of clean up!

All in all this book is not a mind blowing read at the end you kind of feel like are you kidding? That's it? Just like at the end of the book where Emma states she feels like she's back to "square one" the reader is left feeling the same way. Three books into it and you know zip about the circumstances surrounding Sutton's death ie why she was killed and how. Who might be a prime suspect or who even the birth parents might be??? These books lack substance and important information necessary to keep the story going. S.S.

I'm a bit underwhelmed here. I just can't help but feel like the book series has lost pizzazz since the TV series has started.

In Two Truths and a Lie, Emma Paxton is living the life of her twin sister, Sutton, and trying to figure out who murdered Sutton. The book is narrated by Sutton watching over Emma, so it's in third person and first person at the same time. It still weirds me out. Sutton doesn't comment on things much, so it reads like third person limited from Emma's point of view, and when Sutton does comment on something, sometimes I don't even realize it and I feel like it's Emma. You would think I would be used to the narration after three books, but it still gets kind of confusing.

I'm also kind of bored with the who-dun-it game we have going on. I feel like I solved the murder a long time ago. I hope the murderer isn't as predictable as I feel it is, but also not as completely abstract as in Shepard's Pretty Little Liars series. I think each individual book doesn't have a detailed enough arc.

I think there are maybe two plots in this entire book, the plot of the murder and the plot of the Lying Games. Just having two plots isn't substantial enough to satisfy readers -- we want multiple things going on. In Shepard's Pretty Little Liars series, there are four narrators, and each narrator has two or more subplots in and of themselves. That's over eight overall plots arcing throughout the series. The Lying Game books have three total, one for the overall series and two for each individual book. I feel like Shepard needs to add some more beef to this series to show its true potential.

Another thing about Two Truths and a Lie that bugged me is how short it is.
