PRETTY LITTLE LIARS meets THE AMATEURS in a fun Sara Shepard easter egg!
If there’s an author with some solid cross-promotional opportunities out there, it’s Sara Shepard.
The author’s Pretty Little Liars series inspired the hit Freeform television show of the same name, which begins its seventh season next week. With such a strong connection to Freeform audiences, it’s no surprise that her new novel, The Amateurs, is set to kick off Disney publishing’s Freeform imprint. But that’s not all!
Freeform is advertising their first publishing endeavor on its most popular show, giving a little love to the author who came up with both in this new clip!
Here’s the official description for The Amateurs:
As soon as Seneca Frazier sees the post on the Case Not Closed website about Helena Kelly, she’s hooked. Helena’s high-profile disappearance five years earlier is the one that originally got Seneca addicted to true crime. It’s the reason she’s a member of the site in the first place.
So when Maddy Wright, her best friend from the CNC site, invites Seneca to spend spring break in Connecticut looking into the cold case, she immediately packs her bag. But the moment she steps off the train in trendy, glamorous Dexby, things begin to go wrong. Maddy is nothing like she expected, and Helena’s sister, Aerin Kelly, seems completely hostile and totally uninterested in helping with their murder investigation.
But when Brett, another super user from the site, joins Seneca and Maddy in Dexby, Aerin starts to come around. The police must have missed something, and someone in Dexby definitely has information they’ve been keeping quiet.
As Seneca, Brett, Maddy, and Aerin begin to unravel dark secrets and shocking betrayals about the people closest to them, they seem to be on the murderer’s trail at last. But somewhere nearby the killer is watching . . . ready to do whatever it takes to make sure the truth stays buried.
The novel hits shelves on November 1, 2016, but you can pre-order it now on Amazon.
