Door KnoxThe Intensity OfKnoxThe intensity of continues to build up throughout the story and again I think McManus did door KnoxThe intensity of this continues to build up throughout the story and again I think McManus did "excellent job keeping the narrative fun and compellingI was so excited to be back at Bayview High for another mystery The "job keeping the narrative fun and compellingI was so excited to be back at Bayview High for another mystery The sleuthing was super entertaining full of twists and The Confederate Privateers red herrings I also loved the game element It was so sinister perfectly plotted andight up my alleyI will continue to pick up anything McManus writes I cannot wait to see what s next Her signature style of characters and pacing works so well for me This was a solid seuel I Big Bad Detective Agency really appreciate the work Karen M McManus does in fleshing out each of her characters She makes sure we get to know every single one of them understand them On top of that she does a great job of providing a surprising plot I like the fact that it doesn t just end with the explosive point the storyeaches and that we get a bit of cushion at the end to see the aftermath of everything All in all I The Placer really enjoyed this book Guys I ve gotten pretty old and grumpy in myeading There s just a point at which you ve Otto Freundlich: Cosmic Communism read so much you feel like nothing is surprising any I had just put down a very blah book when I picked up this one and thank goodness I did pick it up because it was a balm on my wounded grouchy soul My absolute FAVORITE thing about Karen s books is that I know going in that I will be in excellent hands I will be shocked I will gasp I will laugh I will cringe and yell at the characters I will not be subjected to endless exposition or meaningless conversation Why Because Karen is a consistently wonderful writer and ONE OF US IS NEXT is no different Even when I thought I knew what was going 1010ecommend The Tattooist of Auschwitz (The Tattooist of Auschwitz, reading this near a window on aainy day with a fluffy blanket and a cup of coffee This is apparently a seuel but it was like a spin off Yes we get little cameos of the previous characters which I adored but the plot Profiles in Leadership: Historians on the Elusive Quality of Greatness revolves around a set of different characters and I feel like you canead it as a standalone The writing once again was so great I became uickly attached to our three main characters The interactions and friendship between them was fantastic I think that s what I love most about McManus s books it s not just about the mystery but the parts in between that make her books addictive The pacing was perfect and the plot twists even though I predicted a lot of them were still well thought out and clever which to me is important than it being shocking I eally eally don t want to say goodbye to Bayview and I hope we might get another spin off fingers crossed Thank you to Penguin for sending me this book in exchange for an honest eview My eview forBook 1 One of us is lying As a devoted fan of Brat Pack movies and anything has 80 s vibes including Stranger Things I adore this series I loved the first installment and I had uite amazing time during my eading consuming popcorn covered in parmesan cheese and gallons ed wine My husband went on strike stopped cooking for me but secretly he cooked himself and ate everything under the blanket not to get caught Der Bilderwächter red handed I know I enjoyed the first book because of its amazing Breakfast Club meets modern teen dramas better than Riverdale and closer to Pretty Big Liar.
