Sister Sister – by Sue Fortin

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Alice: Beautiful, kind, manipulative, liar.

Claire: Intelligent, loyal, paranoid, jealous.

Claire thinks Alice is a manipulative liar who is trying to steal her life.
Alice thinks Claire is jealous of her long-lost return and place in their family.

One of them is telling the truth. The other is a maniac.
Two sisters. One truth.

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Sister Sister is the second book by Sue Fortin I have read and I have to say I fell even more in love with her writing.

The story follows Claire, she is a solicitor, married to Luke and they have two beautiful daughters. Her mum Marion lives with them. There is a time during the year where both Claire and Marion get sad and think about …’s sister Alice. She now lives in America and was taken from Claire their lives, when the father decide to leave.

This has been really hard on both women. Why did he take Alice and not Claire? Why couldn’t they find Alice? Questions and questions…

One day they get surprised by a letter from Alice, that’s when it all changes. Alice visits them and at first everything is fine. Especially Marion is very happy to get to know her daughter. Claire however, gets more and more suspicious, because weird things start to happen. Accidents, broken things and more. After a while there is even the police involved and Claire gets blamed for everything. Alice also flirts with Luke and spends a lot of time with her daughters while she is at work.

Claire sees her world falling apart, everyone blames her for the bad things that happen and nobody believes her. She is determined to find out the truth about Alice. What she finds out is shocking! It involves some other people as well, some she thought she knew well and also new people.

The storyline in this book is very clever. It builds up and up until you just want to go and help Claire reveal everything. It’s so hard to see her struggle, but it’s part of the story, which is very gripping, riveting, spellbinding and mesmerizing. I got so hooked, because I just wanted to find out the truth. You can feel the tension through the words and you just can’t let go.

This is a thriller full of twists and turns and it includes family, love and friendship. These things all put together with great writing create a novel you can’t miss. I’m not that big on thrillers, but this one is fabulous!!! You don’t know which way the story is going and that’s fascinating!

This book is a definite must read!!!
