The Lying Game by Sara Shepard

 Stars: 4

Summary from amazon:
I had a life anyone would kill for.

Then someone did.
The worst part of being dead is that there’s nothing left to live for. No more kisses. No more secrets. No more gossip. It’s enough to kill a girl all over again. But I’m about to get something no one else does—an encore performance, thanks to Emma, the long-lost twin sister I never even got to meet.
Now Emma’s desperate to know what happened to me. And the only way to figure it out is to be me—to slip into my old life and piece it all together. But can she laugh at inside jokes with my best friends? Convince my boyfriend she’s the girl he fell in love with? Pretend to be a happy, carefree daughter when she hugs my parents good night? And can she keep up the charade, even after she realizes my murderer is watching her every move?
Let the lying game begin

Review: I LOVED Pretty Little Liars, and this book was just as suspenseful.

 The narrative was from Sutton's ghost wasn't much first person. It was more like third person for Emma, with sporadic comments from Sutton. The plot for this one is Sutton is dead, and no one knows who killed her. Not even Sutton herself.

 While the book is mostly mystery, there was a cute romance thrown in. Ethan was a someone Sutton would have never hung out with, but it's not Sutton, now is it? Emma and Ethan are so cute together! Too bad that Sutton's boyfriend is Garret, and if this book's mystery is anything like PLL, Ethan will be a crazy axe murderer in the next book. : P Oh, well it was cute while it lasted ; )

This book's plot turns kept me guessing. At one time I was like: She's the murderer!...Nevermind! He's the murderer!
Yeah... If this seires is as long as the PLL I'll be broke by the end of it.
