Meh. It was just ok. Kind of saw the end coming a mile away. ( )

I really enjoyed this book! This book sounded like it could be fun so I decided to give it a try and found it to be a very entertaining read. I was rather let down by the last book that I read that featured the sister of a serial killer so I was very happy that this one worked so well for me.

Carrie just wants to lead a boring normal life. It is hard to do considering who her sister is. Carrie’s sister has a little habit of getting rid of anyone who creates an inconvenience in her life. When it comes time to hide the bodies, she turns to Carrie for help. So about once a year, Carrie helps her sister out and she isn’t happy about the arrangement. When bodies are discovered in her small town, Carrie fears that Becca’s crimes are finally being exposed but it turns out there is another serial killer in town who is determined to frame Carrie for his crimes.

I liked Carrie. I hated how her sister, Becca, was able to manipulate her but I understood how it happened. Carrie has a lot to deal with over the course of this story and most of the time she seemed like she was the underdog but she usually proved to be resilient. The story was really exciting and there were quite a few twists and turns that kept me guessing. Just when I thought I had everything figured out the book would throw another surprise at me.

I would recommend this book to others. I thought that it was really well done and I found it very hard to put down. This story entertained me from beginning to end and I definitely plan to read future books by this talented author.

I received a review copy of this book from Grand Central Publishing. ( )

Carrie has a secret. Her sister Becca is a serial killer. Carrie has another secret. She helps her sister hide the bodies. This is a very easy read that flows nicely. Jam packed with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. "Look What You Made Me Do” is unique in a deep sea of psychological and serial killer thrillers. It’s disturbing and twisted, filled with palpable tension and white-knuckle moments. This book is non-stop action, creating a thrilling ride that quickly engages the reader. I’ve never read anything by this author before...but this won’t be my last one. ( )

Elaine Murphy has come up with an interesting premise for her new novel, Look What You Made Me Do.

Carrie and Becca are sisters with very different temperaments - and interests. You see, Becca is a serial killer and over the years Carrie has helped her dispose of quite a few bodies. It's hard to say no to Becca and there's no telling what would happen if Carrie did refuse. When a large number of bodies are found buried in a park, Becca swears they're not her kills. Could there be another serial killer in their town? Becca decides they need to find him or her.

Okay, yes you're going to have to suspend belief a bit. Although, there are a number of actual cases with serial killer accomplices.

The story is told through Carrie's point of view. And with that pov, the reader can see how manipulative and dangerous Becca is. And once you're in, you can't get out.

A cat and mouse game begins with the other killer and Carrie seems to be the prize. Every time Carrie comes home and opens her front door, she's not sure what she'll find. Murphy did a great job ramping up the tension. I had a sense of watching a horror movie, ready to yell 'look under the bed' at Carrie.

There is more than one choice as to who the other killer is. I was leaning towards one character in particular and was happily surprised when it ended up being another. Murphy provides a nice turn in the plot midway and provides an unexpected, gotcha twist at the end. And she sprinkles some dark humour throughout.

For me, Look What You Made Me Do wasn't a serious suspense novel, if that makes sense. Still, I thought it was a novel idea that kept me turning pages and entertained. ( )
