The Secrets of Lilly Graves

Author: Sarah Strohmeyer
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Release Date: May 13, 2014

Synopsis from Goodreads:
With the intrigue of Pretty Little Liars and plenty of romance, bestselling author Sarah Strohmeyer weaves a story of secrets and lies—set in a funeral parlor.

Growing up in a house of female morticians, Lily Graves knows all about buried secrets. She knows that perfect senior-class president Erin Donohue isn’t what she seems. She knows why Erin’s ex-boyfriend, hot football player Matt Houser, broke up with her. And she also knows that, even though she says she and Matt are just friends, there is something brewing between them—something Erin definitely did not like.

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.

Why I’m Excited:

Holy moly, this sounds amazing! As most of you know, I absolutely adore a good YA mystery and this one sounds amazing. I thought Ms. Strohmeyer’s last book, How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True, was a bit too cutsey and unrealistic (although certainly a quick, fun read), and I’m so happy to see her taking this darker turn. A family of female morticians! A dead class president! A romance! I wants it now. I’m going to be checking EW like a fiend for this one.

  1. I feel like this has the potential to be really good or just really over the top and ridiculous. I agree with you about her last book (I'm too lazy to type out the title :)), but I feel like if she took some of the lightness of Zoe and combined it with such a dark subject and a mystery it could really work. Adding it to my TBR!


  2. Holy COW! This looks so incredible! How have I not heard of this before?! Thanks so much for spotlighting this book, I'm adding it to my TBR list right away. Why can't it be released sooner?! I'm literally now lost for words – so I'll go now.
    Thanks for stopping by my WoW post! 🙂
    Happy Reading! ^.^
