Goodreads Summary:
My sister wants the truth.

But sometimes the truth hurts.

For months, my long-lost twin, Emma, has been living my life and trying to solve my murder. She's unearthed dark secrets about my friends, my family, and my tangled past. But when it comes to finding my killer, she keeps running into dead ends.

Until my body shows up in Sabino Canyon. Suddenly everyone knows there are two girls who look like Sutton Mercer—and that one of them is dead. At first the police assume the body is Emma's. But as questions and accusations start flying, it's harder than ever for Emma to keep playing me. The truth is bound to come out eventually. And when it does, Emma will be suspect number one in my murder investigation. If she can't find my killer before time runs out, she'll end up behind bars . . . or worse.

Sara Shepard, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars books, finally reveals the shocking truth about Sutton's murder in this riveting novel about secrets, lies, and killer consequences.

My Thoughts:

I have really enjoyed this series. Even more so that Shepard's PLL series. And the final book was no different.

I have known for a while who the murderer is, but finding out why this particular person did it made me cringe and scream at my book for Emma to run. This person was twisted and clever and made a pretty impressive villain.

Emma is very desperate to find Sutton's killer. Yet at the same time she is terrified about what said killer is capable of. Emma demonstrates great strength in this book despite all the obstacles that are thrown at her. 

This book was creepy and full of suspense. It kept me reading well into the night. At one point, I even cried. I just wish there had been some kind of epilogue Six Months Later/ One Year Later just to show how Emma was coping after all the craziness that she had to endure. 

I really liked getting to know these characters, and I am sad that this series has ended. But, I will definitely be visiting it again.

Overall, Seven Minutes in Heaven was a great ending to a fantastic series.
