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 goodnight? And can she keep up the charade, even after she realizes my murderer is watching her every move?
From Sara Shepard, the #1 New York Times best-selling author of the Pretty Little Liars books, comes a riveting new series about secrets, lies, and killer consequences.
Let the lying game begin.

I started watching the show and was delighted to find out that this was written by Pretty Little Liars author Sara Shepard. I enjoyed the first book and find that it is more interesting than the show. I like the Sutton as a ghost dynamic, watching over Emma's moves. I can't wait to find out who the killer is.
As always Sara Shepard dangles you along to try and solve the mystery. The characters come alive through the excellent narration of Cassandra Morris.
Emma because she has the most to lose. I feel empathy for her losses, would like to see her truly have a family.
The personality of the characters.
not knowing for sure who was friend or foe.
the dialogue. i liked getting both emma's perspective and then sutton's thoughts and how she felt looking back on her life.
toss up between emma and sutton as they both played sutton
being mistaken for a rich, beautiful girl who has it all is every girl's dream. too bad she was the queen of mean, appears to be dead and i might be next.
very enjoyable story. it continuously keeps you guessing.
I bought this audiobook because I absolutely loved the 'Pretty Little Liars' series. I was hoping to love this book too, but unfortunately I couldn't even get through half of it. The dialogue was confusing and I just couldn't seem to get into the story.
This book was just so-so. But with me being as compulsive as I am, I had a hard time not finishing the book. I was disappointed by the ending, or the lack there-of. The story-line was a little juvenille. I hate to say it though I will most likely have to read the next book just to see if it goes anywhere....if there is a next one.
I bought this book on an Audible sale and that should've been my first clue. I wanted a lighthearted summer read, and this one had good reviews so I decided to give it a try. If you are not expecting a literature masterpiece, you would probably enjoy the book. It is well written, and although some of the situations are very forced (like how Emma found out about the existence of her twin sister), overall the plot is interesting and addictive, in a guilty pleasure king of way. I happily bought the second book, but at the end of that one, the killer wasn't even near to be revealed, and that really annoyed me. So here I am, going through the 3rd book only to find out that there are a total of SIX BOOKS! If this was only one fat book, I would probably would have given it 4 stars, as it did keep me guessing and entertained. As a trilogy I would've given it 3 starts. But 6 books??? I don't think I can stomach that, so I am just going to google who the killer is and be done with it.
