“I did something terrible Grace. I hope you can forgive me …”
Grace hasn’t been the same since the death of her best friend Charlie. She is haunted by Charlie’s words, the last time she saw her, and in a bid for answers, opens an old memory box of Charlie’s. It soon becomes clear there was a lot she didn’t know about her best friend.
When Grace starts a campaign to find Charlie’s father, Anna, a girl claiming to be Charlie’s sister steps forward. For Grace, finding Anna is like finding a new family, and soon Anna has made herself very comfortable in Grace and boyfriend Dan’s home.
But something isn’t right. Things disappear, Dan’s acting strangely and Grace is sure that someone is following her. Is it all in Grace’s mind? Or as she gets closer to discovering the truth about both Charlie and Anna, is Grace in terrible danger?
There was nothing she could have done to save Charlie …or was there?
A compelling, gripping psychological thriller perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, I Let You Go, and The Girl With No Past.
The Sister is a dark and tense psychological thriller.
Initially I was so hung up on the book title, needing to know who the sister was, and how she would be connected to the story. I found myself thinking up all sorts of scenarios. However, one thing I quickly learnt while reading this book, was to expect the unexpected and trust no one!
This story has an interesting plot, which despite only having a few main characters, had a lot of layers and depth to it. The characters were well developed. Some were less likeable than others. I found myself practically screaming at one character in anger and frustration. I perhaps had some sympathy for them by the end, although not completely, as the book made me feel very nervous and suspicious, so I’m reluctant to fully trust them even now I’ve finished the book.
I highly recommend this book to fans of fictional thrillers, psychological thrillers, suspense and mystery. It’s a cracking debut novel by this author. I can’t wait to see what Louise Jensen comes up with next.
