Pretty Little Liars’ Sara Shepard on Her Latest Adult Thriller

in Thrillers by

One of the books at the top of our must-read list for this year was The Elizas (Atria Books), which just seemed to have every element you want out of a thriller: a narrator who isn’t quite sure what’s going on but whom no one will believe; a case of identity confusion; a beautiful location; and last, but perhaps most important, a writer who really knows what she’s doing.

Like really, close out this window and run in the other direction. I can not be held responsible if you haven’t caught up on this guilty pleasure. Okay, now that…
