Synopsis from Goodreads: Carrie’s sister is dead.


Four months after losing her sister, Becca—a serial killer unknown to everyone else in town—Carrie Lawrence is finally free of her manipulative clutches. From now on, she’s keeping her hands clean, no more hiding dead bodies in the middle of the night, no more lies.


She’s never been happier.


Then she attends a meeting of the Brampton Kill Seekers, a group of amateur local sleuths, and learns that a recent victim left behind a note that incriminates her in their disappearance. All of a sudden the quiet, law-abiding life she’s been planning starts to unravel.


She’s never had so much to lose.


In her frantic quest to keep her secret dead and buried, she discovers someone nefarious lurking in the shadows…someone who’ll go to any lengths to bring her dark truths to light. Now if Carrie wants her secrets to stay hidden, she’ll have to get her hands very, very dirty.


My Review: I loved the first book of this duology? I am not sure if this will just be two books or if there will be more. Either way the first one was a really great read. It had a fantastic wit and a whole lot of sarcasm. It also had great characters and a great mystery. Enough about that one though, this one was almost as good. Still had the same great characters, still had a lot of wit but I felt like the plot and the mystery were pretty messy. There were a few things that just did not seem plausible to me. Overall though it was still a great read and I am looking forward to another book from this author.
