Two Can Keep a Secret, Karen M. McManus

Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus is a mystery novel that I can’t wait to read. I have yet to read McManus’ other novel, One of Us is Lying, but I have heard incredible things. There is something about books that feature families and secrets that draw me in. Looking forward to finding out how this one plays out.

Summary (from Goodreads):

Echo Ridge is small-town America. Ellery's never been there, but she's heard all about it. Her aunt went missing there at age seventeen. And only five years ago, a homecoming queen put the town on the map when she was killed. Now Ellery has to move there to live with a grandmother she barely knows.

The town is picture-perfect, but it's hiding secrets. And before school even begins for Ellery, someone's declared open season on homecoming, promising to make it as dangerous as it was five years ago. Then, almost as if to prove it, another girl goes missing.

Ellery knows all about secrets. Her mother has them; her grandmother does too. And the longer she's in Echo Ridge, the clearer it becomes that everyone there is hiding something. The thing is, secrets are dangerous--and most people aren't good at keeping them. Which is why in Echo Ridge, it's safest to keep your secrets to yourself. 


Book Quotes: Two Can Keep a Secret

Ezra watches them leave with a bemused expression, then turns to me. “I have a really strong feeling that on Wednesdays, they wear pink.”

Welcome to life in a small town. You’re only as good as the best thing your family’s done. Or the worst.

    First of all, your blog is absolutely stunning. It’s gorgeous and from what I’ve seen of it so far, we seem to have a lot in common. So, I’m definitely a new subscriber for sure. And second, great choice of books. I’m really excited about Two Can Keep a Secret, because I’m definitely planning on reading One of Us Is Lying before this year is out because I’ve heard so many great things about it. 🙂
