First came Pretty Little Liars then came The Lying Game; but one thing that both series by Sara Shepard share is their penchant for pretty girls, ugly secrets, more lies than truths, and deadly consequences. This month, we celebrate the release of book four in The Lying Game series – better known as Hide and Seek; and to fully prepare, we’re recapping the epicness of it all, starting with Book # 1!
The Lying Game – Sutton had the type of life any girl would kill to have. And someone did. But Sutton refuses to stay buried thanks to Emma, the long-lost twin sister she never met; who plans to find justice for Sutton’s murder by stepping into the very designer shoes she just vacated. The question is…how will Emma keep up such a deadly charade, when Sutton’s true murderer is out there, watching her every move? Read an excerpt here
The Lying Game # 2: Never Have I Ever – Turns out the life that Sutton once lived wasn’t really perfect; it was simply a perfect lie – one that she is watching be put back together, piece by piece, by Emma, the long-lost twin sister who has taken on the role of Sutton, in order to solve her murder. But the deeper Emma digs into Sutton’s past, and the more time she spends with Sutton’s supposed near-and-dear; the more she realizes that Sutton and her friends aren’t necessarily the peachiest people. They’ve caused a lot of hurt for people; and one of them finally took revenge on Sutton. But who? And how long will the killer wait before he or she strikes Emma?
The Lying Game # 3: Two Truths and a Lie – Sutton’s killer is still at large; and Emma, the long-lost twin sister who has taken over Sutton’s life in order to solve her murder, is at risk of being next on the killer’s list. Regardless, Emma refuses to stop her search for justice – unraveling the tangled web of lies, secrets, and hurt caused by Sutton’s beloved Lying Game pranks bit by bit. One thing is for sure…Thayer, the brother of Sutton’s best friend, disappeared just two months before Sutton bit the dust. No one knew where he went; and only Sutton knew that his MIA act was the result of her. Now Thayer’s back; but is it for revenge?
Which brings us to this month’s eagerly-anticipated release…The Lying Game # 4: Hide and Seek.
Book Description: My friends and I used to play lying games. Now my twin sister is living one. When I was alive, my family seemed picture-perfect. My adoptive parents adored me, and my little sister, Laurel, copied my every move. But now that my long-lost twin, Emma, has taken my place to solve my murder, we’re both learning just how flawed my family really is. Laurel is shooting Emma nasty looks and sneaking around with my ex-boyfriend. And it turns out my parents are keeping a huge secret—could it be the reason I’m dead? How far would they go to keep the truth buried? No one can harm me now, but Emma is still fair game. And if she’s not careful, she’ll end up buried, too. . . .
