In this action-packed thriller sequel to Envy, foreign exchange student Olivia Grant is stabbed to death after a party--and the prime suspect is her best friend. As twins Hayley and Taylor Ryan get pulled into the aftermath of this Amanda Knox-like crime, they realize nothing is what it seems. Could it be betrayal of the ultimate kind?
Betrayal features real-life crime-solving techniques, heart-stopping suspense, plenty of red herrings, hard-hitting ethical questions, and information about the Amanda Knox case that inspired the novel. As the crime unravels, so does the twins' past…and they must face off against a family member who may unexpectedly have carried out the worst betrayal of all.
Man, this was a really fantastic sequel! I loved spending more time with these characters, the twins who kinda have some supernatural power, and then dealing with these mysteries! And yet, the theme of this book, betrayal, it's a really evil action! So it was good that this book was about fighting it!
The murder mystery that was based off of a real case, just like the last book, was the main focus. But like Envy, this book also dealt with a lot more, had a lot more going on, that was just so fascinating to read about!
I really enjoyed that there was more of the paranormal in this book, with the spaghetti soup, and all that stuff, it was more prominent in this book! And I really enjoyed that! It's just so spooky, and interesting! I wanted more!
I would really, really love for there to be a 3rd book! Things didn't feel done in this book, it feels like the paranormal stuff is only really just beginning, and I want to see where it's going to go! I'm so interesting in it!
This was such a great sequel, and I just want to read more!
