But secrets, even ones that are long buried, have a way of returning to haunt their keeper.
So when Erin is found dead the day after attacking Lily in a jealous rage, Lily's and Matt’s safe little lives, and the lives of everyone in their town of Potsdam, begin to unravel. And their relationship—which grew from innocent after-school tutoring sessions to late-night clandestine rendezvous—makes them both suspects.
As her world crumbles around her, Lily must figure out the difference between truth and deception, genuine love and a web of lies. And she must do it quickly, before the killer claims another victim.

This book was nothing like I expected. Sarah Strohmeyer's other books are quite lighthearted and that's what I was expecting with this book. Not that it wasn't amazing and great. It was just a surprise. I was expecting something cute and fluffy but here we have a girl who lives in a funeral home with corpses in her basement and ends up solving a mystery! To be honest, I think I loved this even more than her other books. It was so unique and interesting!
I'm pretty proud of myself, I figured out "whodunnit" a few chapters before it was revealed and that made me quite happy. So, you've got an intense mystery that takes many twists and turns, an absolutely awesome main characters and a cool best friend as well as this funeral home Lily lives in that is a mixture of cool and creepy. Also her aunt, I just adored her. She's great as well what Lily calls her mom's boyfriend ;)
I don't know what else to say. I loved it. It was so unique. And ironically, I went to a library program about mummification a few days later and actually knew a little of what he was talking about when he mentioned formaldehyde xD Again, great book. The writing style was the same I felt, but it was just different genre and content sort of. Either way, it worked very well for me :D
