Look What You Made Me Do
by Elaine Murphy

Thank you so much to Grand Central Publishing for gifting me Look What You Made Me Do by Canadian author Elaine Murphy in exchange for an honest review.

This book was published on July 13, 2021—OUT NOW!

Look What You Made Me Do by Elaine Murphy was a fun “popcorn thriller” (as Abby from Crime by the Book likes to say!) following two sisters who couldn’t be any more different from each other.  Carrie wants (and pretends to have) a normal life where she lives happily in her own home with her boyfriend and a nine-to-five job, while Becca, on the other hand, is a psychopath and simply wants to kill people.  As much as Carrie tries to have a normal life, for the past ten years she has been manipulated and roped into helping her sister hide the bodies of the people she’s killed.  Carrie has no choice but to help, because can you ever really say no to a serial killer?

So far, Becca and Carrie’s activities have managed to go on unnoticed in their small town.  However, things get a little murky when thirteen bodies are discovered in the woods who are NOT Becca’s victims.  There seems to be another serial killer in their small town and as the police begin to investigate, it becomes clear that this new killer has their eyes set on framing Becca and Carrie for their own murders.  What follows is a fun and unpredictable cat-and-mouse game that will leave you guessing until the very last page.

I had NO idea what to expect going into this book.  When I first heard what it was about I was SO intrigued because it’s such an interesting premise—can you even imagine what it would be like to cover up a family member’s horrific crimes for ten years!? I definitely can’t! 

Look What You Made Me Do was such a fun, quick and engaging read.  Murphy’s writing was captivating, the story often had me on the edge of my seat, and the dialogue between the two sisters was really entertaining.  I loved the way Carrie would describe and talk about her sister; the way she could explain just how well she knew her and what she needed to do/act/say in order to avoid certain situations.  There were also a few twists that completely shocked me!

I definitely recommend this book if you’re looking for a different, but also entertaining thriller!


ABOUT LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO:

A gripping thriller about a woman who must help cover the tracks of her serial killer sister—only to discover her sibling isn’t the only serial killer in town . . . and they’re both next on his kill list.

Carrie wants a normal life.
Carrie Lawrence doesn’t need a happily ever after. She’ll just settle for “after.” After a decade of helping her sister hide her victims. After a lifetime of lies. She just wants to be safe, boring, and not trekking through the woods at night with a dead body wrapped in a carpet.

Becca wants to get away with murder.
Becca Lawrence doesn’t believe in happily ever after because she’s already happy. She’s gotten away with murder for a decade and has blackmailed her sister into helping her hide the evidence—what more could a girl want?

But first they have to stop a serial killer.
When thirteen bodies are discovered in their small town, people are shocked. But not as shocked as Carrie, who thought she knew all the details of Becca’s sordid pastime. When Becca swears she’s not behind the grisly new crimes, they realize the town has a second serial killer who has the sisters in his sights, and what he wants is…Carrie.
