Two girls haunted by the past...and destined to relive it

In Legacy of Lies, Megan has to stay with the uptight grandmother she wants nothing to do with. She's determined to get through the visit without any drama, but when she falls into a twisted love triangle with potentially fatal consequences, Megan may be caught up in her family's legacy in more ways than she realizes.

In Don't Tell, Lauren knows that by returning to the town where her mother drowned seven years ago, she'll be reliving one of her most haunting memories. When she arrives, she is propelled into a series of mysterious events that mimic the days leading up to her mother's death. Maybe her mother's drowning wasn't an accident after all...and maybe Lauren is next.

Sexual Content:
- Some kissing and holding hands

-A couple of hell's and one D***



- Someone in each book dies, it's just a basic murder mystery

Other Notables:
The first book is about  reincarnation and the second book is about poltergeist and psychokinesis ( a person can make things happen mentally, like moving objects or tying knots) 

Did I like this book?
No. I felt it was very childish. The writing and the storyline was perfect for a preteen but not for me. I was bored with the book and I could pretty much tell you who the killer was in both books. *Hint - The obvious person was never it! These kind of books bother me, very predictable, same scenarios.
