Look What You Made Me Do by Elaine Murphy
Carrie wants a normal life.
Carrie Lawrence doesn’t need a happily ever after. She’ll just settle for “after.” After a decade of helping her sister hide her victims. After a lifetime of lies. She just wants to be safe, boring, and not trekking through the woods at night with a dead body wrapped in a carpet.
Becca wants to get away with murder.
Becca Lawrence doesn’t believe in happily ever after because she’s already happy. She’s gotten away with murder for a decade and has blackmailed her sister into helping her hide the evidence—what more could a girl want?
But first they have to stop a serial killer.
When thirteen bodies are discovered in their small town, people are shocked. But not as shocked as Carrie, who thought she knew all the details of Becca’s sordid pastime. When Becca swears she’s not behind the grisly new crimes, they realize the town has a second serial killer who has the sisters in his sights, and what he wants is…Carrie.
Becca leaned against the hood of her car, smoking a cigarette, looking like the Queen Bee in every high school movie with her tight jeans and T-shirt, her blond hair in a high, shiny ponytail. Not even the towering trees and mountains could compete with her beauty...
Elaine Murphy kept me on my toes throughout this entire book. I could not stop reading once I started. There was suspense, drama and thrill with just a minor hint (okay a lotta hint) of family drama. What is one to do when their sister is a serial killer? Murphy combines the thrill of hunting a serial killer, keeping the police off your trail and trying to keep your boyfriend from finding out just how many bodies you've helped hide. I found myself going back and forth between begging Carrie to turn her sister in and free herself and hoping her and Becca found the other serial killer and for no one to ever figure out Becca and Carrie's extracurricular activities.
I also found myself mad at Becca and Carrie's parents on Carrie's behalf because they pretty much washed their hands of Becca and, in turn, brought a serial killer to Carrie's doorstep. As a parent myself, I feel that they could have taken better precautions to protect Carrie from Becca and not left Carrier to deal with her sister by herself. I highly recommend you read this book no matter what type of literature you're a fan of; I promise you won't be disappointed.
If you have a book you think I should read and review, go on over to the recommendations tab and tell me about it!
