My Review:

*Thank you to Netgalley and Bookouture for my ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review*

The Sister is another wonderful psychological thriller from Louise Jensen.

This is an excellent debut novel – a pyschological thriller that builds slowly, gradually filling out the details and adding layers to produce a sizzling finale when it all comes together with some major reveals.

A story about secrets, lies, and a friendship bond that lasts through tough times, but then is broken by death, The Sister: A psychological thriller with a brilliant twist you won’t see coming was a page turner that kept me guessing. The main characters were; Grace and Charlie they met when they were very young, and after Charlie has stood up for Grace when a boy (Dan) pokes fun at her. Later, Grace, Charlie, and Dan will all become friends, and the group includes a few others. Some who stay friends, while others do not.  From the turning of the first few pages, we find out that Charlie has died and Grace is inconsolable.  Grace returns to the exact spot where the two had buried a memory box when they were fifteen years old. She digs it up but waits to deal with the contents at later time.

I don’t want to give away too much of the plot, but it unravels quite cleverly, and thought I had certain suspicions from the start, which were essentially confirmed by the end, there were lots of twists and turns I definitely did not expect.

If you like 1 psychological thrillers then pick this book for your next read.  I have one more book to read from this Author and I can’t wait to start reading it.

Have a great summer! Happy Reading!
