Review of Follow Me (Amateurs) by Sara Shepard




Follow Me  by Sara Shepard


It was the perfect night for a party.

That is, until twenty-one-year-old Chelsea Dawson disappeared. The social media star was last seen enjoying a beautiful summer night at the Jersey Shore with her friends. But after an explosive fight with her ex-boyfriend, she vanished without a trace.

When Seneca, Maddox, Aerin, and Madison hear about the suspected kidnapping, they notice a jarring detail about the victim: she looks exactly like Aerin’s sister, Helena, who was killed five years earlier. Seneca is convinced she knows who killed Helena, and she can’t shake the feeling that the same person has taken Chelsea.

Desperate for answers about the two girls, and the truth behind her mother’s murder, Seneca will stop at nothing to find out if the cases are linked. So when Maddox receives an invitation to the Shore from none other than their primary suspect, the Amateurs begin an intense new investigation.

Full of disturbing secrets, startling twists, and horrifying revelations, the second book in #1 New York Times best-selling author Sara Shepard’s The Amateurs series follows the team down a twisted path—one crafted by a brilliant killer.



My thoughts:


I have been looking forward to Follow Me since I finished The Amateurs last year.  The Amateurs was such a fun read for me and I wanted to know what would happen next.


This book picks up a little faster, probably because we already know the characters so well.  It’s been months since the killer from book one got away (don’t want to name him as a spoiler).  But no one has been able to stop thinking about him.


Then a girl disappears after a beach party and the group gets their first new contact from the killer.  He took this girl and obviously wants to play with everyone.  Seneca, Aerin, Madison, and Maddox decide to go help out and try to save the girl.  A lot of old memories are brought up again for Seneca and Aerin.  They’re still dealing with that along with their feelings for Maddox and Thomas.   The killer seems to be everywhere and knows everything that they’re doing, but they can’t seem to find him.


I loved the beach setting for this one and the pacing was great.  It was hard to put down and the ending was crazy good.  I can’t wait for book three!
