The Amateursby @sarabooks @HyperionTeens @FreeformTV #Review #FacebookChat #AmateurHour @booksparks #MMBBR

ABOUT THE BOOK:  As soon as Seneca Frazier sees the post on the Case Not Closed website about Helena Kelly, she's hooked. Helena's high-profile disappearance five years earlier is the one that originally got Seneca addicted to true crime. It's the reason she's a member of the site in the first place.

So when Maddy Wright, her best friend from the CNC site, invites Seneca to spend spring break in Connecticut looking into the cold case, she immediately packs her bag. But the moment she steps off the train in trendy, glamorous Dexby, things begin to go wrong. Maddy is nothing like she expected, and Helena's sister, Aerin Kelly, seems completely hostile and totally uninterested in helping with their murder investigation.

But when Brett, another super user from the site, joins Seneca and Maddy in Dexby, Aerin starts to come around. The police must have missed something, and someone in Dexby definitely has information they've been keeping quiet.

As Seneca, Brett, Maddy, and Aerin begin to unravel dark secrets and shocking betrayals about the people closest to them, they seem to be on the murderer's trail at last. But somewhere nearby the killer is watching . . . ready to do whatever it takes to make sure the truth stays buried.

First in a new series by the #1 New York Times best-selling author of the Pretty Little Liars series, Sara Shepard, The Amateurs is packed with the twists and turns, steamy romance, and stunning revelations that her fans have been waiting for.

#FirstLine ~ The snow fell all night, transforming the world by morning.

I am a huge fan of Sheppard...I have read all of her books.  I also have to admit that I am a fan of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS on Freeform.  So when the opportunity to review this book came I jumped at the chance.  I read it in a day.  It has many of the same elements that I love with the PLL series, but it is definitely its own series, with its own storytelling and distinct characters.  It is a character and plot driven story will mystery and sleuthing at its heart.  There are twists and unexpected turns that left me wanting more.  I am so glad this is the start of a series because it gives me something to look forwards to because I know that I will love it.
