Back in 2017 Karen M. McManus published her debut novel One of Us is Lying, a YA thriller that took four, stereotypical teenagers stuck in detention together and threw them into the centre of a murder investigation where they’re all suspects.
I remember this book being all over the book-esphere, you genuinely couldn’t escape it and I ended up reading it in March of 2018 and loved it! There was something so addictive about the writing and the mystery, same goes for McManus’ sophomore novel: Two Can Keep a Secret.
After loving her first two books I vowed to keep up with all her future releases … and then didn’t. I’m three behind: One of Us is Next, The Cousins, and You’ll Be the Death of Me.
I’m here to fix that today because I’m reading One of Us is Next and then I’m gonna dive straight into You’ll Be the Death of Me. Exciting! Not gonna be reading and reviewing The Cousins anytime soon because I don’t have a copy but maybe I’ll do another joint review when the next McManus book comes out.
