Cross My Heart, Hope To Die (The Lying Game #5) by Sara Shepard Book Review

Cross My Heart, Hope To Die (The Lying Game #5) by Sara Shepard
Publisher: Harper Teen
Published Date: February 5th, 2013
Genre: Young Adult, Mystery, Romance 

When I died two months ago, my killer told my twin sister to become me—or else. Now Emma has it down to a T. She tosses her hair with the signature Sutton Mercer flip and can lead a Lying Game prank with the best of them. She’s even repairing my relationship with my adoptive family. The only thing she hasn’t done is solve my murder.

Then our birth mother, the woman who abandoned us, showed up in Tucson. Emma hasn’t seen Becky in twelve years, but Becky recognizes Emma immediately—as Emma. Is it a mother’s intuition . . . or does Becky know I’m already gone?


This is one of my favorite run on series. Every book trickles so neatly into the next bringing unexpected twist and turns leaving a anxious reader in its wake.

Emma is still on her journey to find her sister's killer and she's no closer to finding him/her than she was in the previous novel. She is managing to eliminate suspects and gain new enemies. She's struggling but getting better at being Sutton and little by little she's getting answers to questions that's plagued her since the very beginning.

I'm impressed with the way Shepard writes. She writes so fluidly and creatively weaving a tale of mystery, suspense, and intrigue. It amazes me how she's able to continue writing these stories without them losing their spark. 

This was a great novel not unlike the others and I'm already itching to read the next one. Shepard does not disappoint. I must say although I'm getting a little worried that this is going to drag on for too long. I really hope book six gives me some blow away answers!
