    One thought on “Cross My Heart, Hope to Die”

    1. Well clearly I was a whole lot of WRONG. And it's disappointing because I apparently gave Shepard way too much credit, thinking she was using things like, oh say - literary devices like foreshadowing and back story. Why Sara, if it was entirely meaningless to the story, did you bother with the whole Chamberlain cheating scandal? What a useless waste of page space. Oh well, I still think my ending would've been a smarter, less obvious ending. I am convinced I know who the killer is. Stop here if [...]

    2. Why is there more than 4 books? I was hoping there will be only 4 so we can finally find out who killed Sutton. I might just wait until the final book is out before finishing the series, hopefully there isn't over 10 books like Pretty Little Liars.

    3. This was much better than I expected it to be, with a crazy-as-hell ending I never saw coming! It's great to see the book series and TV show diverge.Full review to come - maybe.Pre-ReviewAnd you're telling me I'm supposed to be surprised by the two-book extension of this series?By the way, I totally saw this coming.It would be pointless for me to tell myself I wasn't going to read this, because I am. I am a self-proclaimed Sara Shepard addict. Saying I'm going to cross this one off my to-read li [...]

    4. Actual Rating: 3.95/5 Stars (yes I'm that specific)This is probably my least favourite book so far in the series, but that by no means says I didn't enjoy it, because it was still awesome!The last, roughly 100 pages were amazing and so intense, like the other books are!I just got a little annoyed with the storyline of Becky in this book, I felt like it dragged along a little bit too long. I did not expect the ending, and I usually expect everything, so that was awesome (but sad)I have my theorie [...]

    5. I've gotta say, Ms Shepard has gone down a few notches in my esteem with this new move to have more than the proposed 4 books in this series. I suppose this has become a bad habit for her after the success of Pretty Little Liars (I mean, what number are we on now, like, 11 right?). It seems to me that Shepard is milking this story for all it's worth, especially since book 3 had a plot that plummeted sharply in quality from the first 2 books.It seems to me that the plot of soon-to-be-released boo [...]

    6. Oh, no. Not a fifth book. I hope this series does not get dragged out like PLLs.2/5 I think that the "murder" was an accident in a prank pulled by Ethan that went wrong or Sutton is in a coma somewhere. 3/12 After finishing book 4, I no longer think that Ethan is the "killer." Instead I believe that he will be the "suspect" in the last book.

    7. Wow! That is my response to the book. My latest theory;I have been try to think of a suspect that would make scenes that is not obvious like Ethan. My idea is Mrs. Mercer. Her first name is Kristin so their might have been a file that Emma did not notice in the file cabinet after she found Becky's. after all she had to frantically book the folder back when the nurse arrived. Mrs. Mercer is one of the few Emma has not investigated (like most of the parents, but she is one of the important parents [...]

    8. If you want to know who killed Sutton, just skip to the last book. The first five are a complete waste of time. Here is a synopsis that will apply to each one: 1. Follow Emma as she chooses a suspect and follows them around for the entire book. 2. Suffer through random flashbacks with Sutton that incriminate Emma's suspect and make them appear hella guilty. 3. Rip your hair out and throw fits about Emma and Sutton ignoring every suspicious thing about Ethan, including his anger problems, relucta [...]

    9. Sara Shepard, I'm loyal to you. You need to stop saying you will do this many books and end up adding more. I heard now there will be six, keep it a six. Is a good number for a series as this. From the summary then it means we won't find out who the killer is on the fourth book. BUMMER.

    10. I liked this book overall, just hope they don't extend it after the 6th book. Some parts were boring, mainly the Ethan/Emma parts. Just never warmed up to Ethan. NISHA DIED!!! I was shocked, was really starting to like her. At this point, how can you not suspect Ethan. He wasn't at school the day Nisha died, home "sick", yeah right. You would think Emma was notice if he was somewhat sick when he came over for dinner. And what about his whereabouts the night Sutton died?Emma, what the hell is wro [...]

    11. I'm continuing to make great book choices.Sara Shepard continues cock-teasing the shit out of us with her addicting yet frustrating 'novels' that are guiltily intriguing yet for the most part just go around in circles while revealing very little. However, I have read every single one of them despite understanding this. Just because I'm aware of an addiction, does not mean I'm capable of reasoning my way out of it. This book wasn't too bad though, a couple more pieces of the twin puzzle were put [...]

    12. BAM! What an ending! :O This review contains spoilers. You’ve been warned!Even though Pretty Little Liars is much more popular I prefer The Lying Game. It just seems more realistic and the plotline still makes sense while PLL has been dragged for way to long. How many books are there? 14? Wow. That is like worse than all those embarrassing House of Night sequels.We start the book where we last left things. Sutton and Emma’s mum, Rebecca finally shows up and she is hard to catch. In last book [...]

    13. Oh the rants I had while reading this book and even after completing it.I am a Sara Shepard addict and I'm not ashamed to admit it. The Lying Game series I happen to like more than The PLL series simply because the series is so far (AND HOPEFULLY WILL FOREVER BE) shorter and more interesting, plot wise. But every book is so predictable. Emma is going to have a brand new suspect and it absolutely HAD to be them and there is no other explanation that person is a murderer there is no evidence again [...]

    14. I absolutely loved this book and it finally made my suspicions clear about ethan killing sutton. Its so obvious he killed her and heres why:1. emma has never asked where he was the night sutton died2. sutton saw his telescope that night but she never saw him3. ethan claims he followed mads car when they choked sutton with her necklace because he had a feeling, but he was obviously obsessed with her4. why was he always at the tennis courts near suttons house when he doesn't live by there. He was [...]

    15. Vollständiges Review auch hier: xobooksheaven.wordpress/Für diejenigen, die Band 1 – 3 noch nicht gelesen haben, könnte die Rezension Spoiler enthalten!!!!!Inhalt:»Sutton ist tot. Sag es niemandem. Spiel weiter mit Oder du bist als Nächste dran.« Vor zwei Monaten wurde Emma Paxtons Zwillingsschwester Sutton umgebracht und der unbekannte Mörder hat Emma gezwungen, Suttons Platz einzunehmen. Emma ist fest entschlossen, den Täter zu entlarven. Die Shortlist der Verdächtigen wird immer k [...]

    16. I loved this one, and cant wait for the sixth. But there are somethings I am DYING to talk about and would love feedback, because none of my friends read this series and I have no one to talk about my theories with. Okay, Sutton's killer. (If she is, in fact, dead. And not in some state of comatose or something) Ethan anybody? He had slight motive to kill Sutton because of the Lying Game prank they pulled on him. He is never suspected because Emma loves him. But Nishas dead. And she knew somethi [...]

    17. Caution: MAJOR spoilers ahead!"When I first started this, I was just trying to survive. But nowI feel like I know Sutton, Ethan. I know it sounds weird, but I feel like she's here sometimes, still with me, cheering me on. I love her, and I can't let her down. She deserves justice." She shook her head again. ''I'm either going to solve this thing, or I'm going to die trying."This might be my favorite book in the series next to the first, FINALLY we're starting to get somewhere! I'm pretty sure th [...]

    18. This series is really intense and it always keeps me guessing. The book slowly reveals information but it still keeps you wondering who the killer is. As soon as we have a suspect we discover that they aren't the killer. I can't wait to see how this series will wrap up. I honestly have no idea who the killer is and I think it will be a shock once everything is revealed. There was a massive cliffhanger at the end of this book which was really unexpected and left me really shocked. I prefer this s [...]

    19. Ich finde die Reihe immer noch sehr gut, aber ich bin weiterhin misstrauisch und überzeugt, dass ich Recht habe, auch wenn Sara Shepard schon diverse Male versucht hat, alle zu verwirren.

    20. SPOILERS:This was a quite good book. 'Quite' because it started a little slow IMHO. But it was really cool especially at the end. Somehow I knew that something like that would happen to Nisha. It would have been to easy to find out some real answers now, because there still is another book to come. But my theory is very simple, and I sure many others have also thought of it. Ever since book 3 I was pretty sure Ethan was the murderer. Way too many subtle clues. And at the end of this book, it was [...]

    21. I cant wait for this book to come out! i just finished reading #4, and now, as always, i want to know what happened next.Does anyone think they know who Sutton's killer is? thats what i want to know the end of the book, i ended up making a list of possible suspects based on what we dont know about where they were the night sutton died. here it is:Becky (duh.)Ethan (did emma ever ask where he was the night Sutton died? Sara would end up having him be the killer)Garret (unlikely, since he still tr [...]

    22. I really like Lying Game series But I think Sara might've dragged it too long!! Please We just wanna know who killed Sutton!! **SPOILERS ALERT!** Okay, after reading this series, my suspicion is on Ethan. Why? Because :1) Emma NEVER asked him where he was the night Sutton died2) He obviously had a crush on Sutton and was kinda obsessed with her.3) He could've hacked into Sutton's Facebook page and replied to Emma's message(Book 1) and lured her to Tucson, since he's good with computer and stuff. [...]

    23. Cross My Heart, Hope To Die is the fifth book in The Lying Game series by Sara Shepard.Becky, the mother of Emma and Sutton, is in town and recognizes Emma immediately. Is it only a mother's intuitionor does she already know Sutton's gone?I really like The Lying Game series. No, I really, really, really like The Lying Game series. Like the other instalments, Cross My Heart, Hope To Die was well-plotted, beautifully written, with strong characters. The ending most shocked me.Who killed Sutton? Wa [...]

    24. I think Ethan being the killer is to obvious and Sara Shepard never picks the obvious character. I think that Dr. Bannerjee my have had an affair with Becky while she was going through treatment and Nisha figured it out which would be the reason for her death, however I don't really think that he would kill his own daughter. ORMr. Chamberlain killed Sutton because she found out that he was having an affair with Becky which resulted in the twins, or Mrs. Chamberlain killed her because she found o [...]

    25. I thought this book was better than the last one, but what bugs me about this series is that it doesn't give you anything major. It's official the only reason I am reading this series is to find out who the killer is. Therefore, I find this series boring and unevenly fil. I hope it gets better because I don't want to be dragged out too long. Overall, an okay read. Needs more suspense to improve my rating.

    26. Okay, I'll be honest I didn't expect what happened in the end, and it's the only reason why I decided not to give it a two stars. However, I insist with what I've said before—there was absolutely NO need to write six books in this series. With three would've been enough.
