Since when do the dead send emails?

Kate Lowry’s best friend Grace died a year ago. So when she gets an email from her, Kate’s more than a little confused.

Subject: (no subject)
I’m here… sort of.
Find Cameron. He knows.
I shouldn’t be writing.
Don’t tell. They’ll hurt you.

Now Kate has no choice but to prove once and for all that Grace’s death was more than just a tragic accident. She teams up with a couple of knights-in-(not-so)-shining armor—the dangerously hot bad boy, Liam, and her lovestruck neighbor, Seth. But at their elite private school, there are secrets so big people will do anything to protect them—even if it means getting rid of anyone trying to solve a murder... 

My Thoughts:
The Liar Society was an absolute fun novel to read filled with plenty of entertainment! Lisa and Laura Roecker have written a great debut novel together which will be sure to bring out your inner detective nature. I read the novel in one sitting, perfectly content to eagerly flip through the pages as I tried to unravel, along with Kate, the mystery of her best friend’s death a year ago.

Kate has always suspected there was more to Grace’s death but no one would ever believe her. A year later, a mysterious email drops into Kate’s inbox from Grace… and this time, Kate’s determined to finally learn the truth. I don’t know how you could possibly not like her as a main character! Despite the rough year she’s had, mourning for Grace and becoming ostracized by others at school, she’s still able to maintain an upbeat attitude most of the time with a touch of sarcasm that brings out a laugh. She’s also resourceful and independent, but not afraid to ask for help when she needs it.

The romance in the novel was cute and not too serious. Liam was handsome, charming and quite kind, despite the bad boy reputation we were told he had when we were first introduced to him. He’s a young man with secrets though, which left my mind buzzing– and suspicions high– to think he had something to do with Grace’s death. I’m glad Kate was smart enough to keep her guard up around him until she got the full story! And then there is Seth, Kate’s geeky friend and next-door neighbour, who played the part of the adorable sidekick with his obvious crush on Kate. He just made me smile whenever he was in a scene!

Witty and surprisingly light, The Liar Society is an easy choice for those looking for a great mystery to be solved along with suspense. You’ll be cheering for Kate from the very beginning to succeed and catch the culprits before it’s too late! I’m looking forward to see what will happen next in book two of the series, The Lies That Bind!
