Overview

Designer clothes. Gorgeous boys. Family secrets. Major drama. The Duke twins and their fabulous Atlanta lives are back...proving why they don't call it Hotlanta for nothing! Twins Sydney and Lauren Duke are the privileged princesses of the Atlanta social scene. But an unsolved murder mystery keeps drawing them back to the wrong side of town. There, wild child Lauren has to risk everything to protect the boy who's stolen her heart. And prim-and-proper Sydney discovers details about their family's past that no one-least of all the girls' fiercely guarded mother-wants to face. When the twins realize what they're up against, can they deal with the dark, dangerous truth

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 8-10

The privileged, African-American Duke twins of Atlanta are back. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and Sydney and Lauren should be focusing on planning their holiday bash, but instead they are preoccupied with attempting to clear their father's name in the murder case of Lauren's boyfriend's brother. All of their detective work has to be on the sly because by proving their father's innocence they just may be exposing their stepfather's activities. Is Altimus's used car business lucrative enough to keep the girls swathed in Gucci and Prada or is he involved in illegal activities? Uncovering the truth is not going to be easy, nor without consequences, for the sisters. The mystery element sets this story apart from other novels in the overdone subgenre of books about wealthy youth, and, even though it's a sequel, it stands on its own.-Robyn Zaneski, New York Public Library

Loved it just as much as the first book! seriously, this series makes me want to keep coming back for more. With the dramatic story line and juicy secrets from the story, it's hard not to get addicted to it. Can't wait for the next one to come out.

Ok so i have read the first book and i am still reading If only you knew. Right now i'm on chapter 12 which is page 158. I cant stop reading this book there is a lot of juicy parts and a lot of suprises. The mother always reminds me of the actress Lynn Whitfield and how she usually acts in movies(dont get me twisted she's a great actress). You can figure out why....but do not read this book if u did not read the first Hotlanta book cause u will b lost. I'm not gonna give away any details but the book is fire you should cop it!

This book was amazing! I loved how the book allows you to feel like your actually in the same room with the characters.Unlike the first book this one has you on the edge of your seat after each chapter. It was so juicy I read the whole thing in one day. Being a fan of the first book I was quite surprised when I walked into Barnes and Noble yesterday and found that book no. 2 was already in stock. I'm glad I get a chance to read it a month earlier than expected because I decided to re-read the first one a few days ago secretly wishing that book number would come out sooner. My wish was granted. Congrats to the authors on both books and I can't wait until the third book arrives.
