Mediocre...

Not gonna lie, I didn’t enjoy this book a lot. There were still somethings I enjoyed but this book was a little bland to read. The plot twists were somewhat ok and that ending would have been amazing should it have been elaborated on. There seemed to be too many loose ends attached to this book and I didn’t like that. The first book was able to tie up some issues and left me on the edge of my seat whereas for this book, I felt unattached to the characters. The use of the characters from the first book threw me off too. They’re reappearance in many scenes didn’t interest or captivate me. The new characters had the potential to carry the weight of this book but I don’t think they were given the chance. Some situations seemed way too convenient and the in my opinion the characters may have been too young to deal with these kinds of issues. Overall, if this had been advertised as a sequel rather than some sort of companion novel, I may have had lower expectations. The writing wasn’t the issue here - rather the story and plot line.

2.5 stars overall

Really loves the first book, but this just felt like a very average follow up. Didn't really feel any emotional connection to the three main characters. Maybe only Knox, what a sweetheart he was. Only thing that kept me going til the end was any mention of Nate (and Bronwyn) lmao The twist in the first book had me like whaaaaaaat!! This one had me like umm ok?? Would I say it's worth reading? I guess so...

pretty good

If you've read/listening to One of Us Is Lying, sadly this is not as good, not as gripping but still pretty good. The narrator's voice sounds like Alexa (really annoying) and the two female characters should have had more contrasting voices but outside of that it was good

Love this, a great follow up

Absolutely wizzes through this in a few days. Such a great story and very fast paced. My only criticism is that it was sometimes difficult to tell the narrators apart as the female voices are a little bit similar. Otherwise I would highly recommend to fans of the first one, I will definitely be checking out Two Can Keep a Secret

Not quite as good as first one, but very good!

Really enjoyed this, listened as soon as I finished the first! I'm not a teenager (and not sure how appropriate this is for teenagers haha) but loved the characters and definitely keeps you gripped. Gave me a shiver down my spine at the end which is what I want from a thriller!
