Book Review Sunday time again!
How is it the 2nd of April already? Today I’m reviewing “The Sister” by Louise Jenson.
“Grace hasn’t been the same since the death of her best friend Charlie. She is haunted by Charlie’s last words, 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?” Blurb taken from Amazon
Another psychological thriller surprise surprise! If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know that these are my favourite kind of books, and I really enjoyed this one. It’s one of those books where you start questioning the main character. Is she really paranoid? Is she right? It also makes you ask so many questions, like what did Charlie do that was so terrible? What are Anna’s motives? What’s Charlie’s mother hiding? And, unlike some books I’ve read, this one answers all the questions at the end. The books deals with the topic of grief well, and how it impacts on the main characters life and others around her such as her partner, and how it acts as a trigger for some of the events in the book. I can’t really say too much about the book without giving away spoilers, but if your looking for something to really get into, definitely read this book. I think I finished it in a day, I was hooked!
