Goodreads Synopsis:

In this fast-paced new novel from Sara Shepard, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Pretty Little Liars, a tight-knit college town scrambles for answers when an e-mail hack reveals life-changing secrets and scandals.

Aldrich University is rocked to its core when a hacker dumps 40,000 people’s e-mails—the entire faculty, staff, students, alums—onto an easily searchable database. Rumors and affairs immediately leak, but things turn explosive when Kit Manning’s handsome husband, Dr. Greg Strasser, is found murdered. Kit’s sister, Willa, returns for the funeral, setting foot in a hometown she fled fifteen years ago, after a night she wishes she could forget. As an investigative reporter, Willa knows something isn’t right about the night Greg was killed, and she’s determined to find the truth. What she doesn’t expect is that everyone has something to hide. And with a killer on the loose, Willa and Kit must figure out who killed Greg before someone else is murdered.

Told from multiple points of view, Reputation is full of twists, turns, and shocking reveals. It’s a story of intrigue, sabotage, and the secrets we keep—and how far we go to keep them hidden. Number one bestseller Sara Shepard is at the top of her game in this brand-new adult novel.

My Thoughts

This book is  told in multiple points of view from Kit, her sister Willa, Kit’s co-worker Lynn, Kit’s daughters crazy friend Raina, and Laura who worked with Kit’s husband.  All these people lead back to Kit.

Everyone has a secret to keep.  Everyone has a reputation at stake.  When a hacker exposes the e-mails from the employees at top notch schools, the cat is out of the bag so they say.  Affairs and cover-ups are all out in the open now.  Some of the cover-ups surprised me, and some didn’t.  I was glad the author put a real life cover-up in the book, because you hear about it all the time which is sad.

Back to the book!  I loved reading about each person.  One more desperate than the other to keep their secrets.  This is what made the book such a pager turner!  You want to keep reading to know if the person can get any crazier.  My answer is yes, yes they can and they do!  I loved how everything all tied together.  Like I said before, it all ties back to Kit, and she was the most sane one to me.

Some of the twists I saw coming, but some were way out there! In my book that’s pretty genius.  The author of this book is also the author of Pretty Little Liars.  So if you liked the show, you’ll probably like the book.

This page turner is available now.

Book Rating: 5/5

For the grand finale this would pair nicely with a Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Wells Cabernet Sauvignon.
