Publisher's Summary

"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 her 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?

Great suspense with unsual twists, turns and spill

This is one of the best suspense stories of the year. Even if you figure out the plot, which thankfully I didn't because that can spoil the book, there are still added surprises. There are bits and pieces of classic suspense novels and films but not enough to make this story feel like a copycat. It's not without some flaws but like with many in this genre you have to suspend some disbelief. It’s crafty, mind bending and has tender moments. Plus, I am left pondering - why are there so many spills in this book? It seems like red wine, water, tea, coffee, any damn liquid are being sloshed over, thrown, tipped, etc. What is the significance to this? And warning, lots of vomiting too. Highly recommend for a scary night in October.

Surprised.

I almost passed this up because it did not rate high, but whoever was rating it got it wrong. Excellent book. 1st time in many books I have stayed up into the night not wanting to shut it off.

Weaves a delicate tale

Any additional comments?

This is not your usual psychological thriller. Do not listen to The Sister if you expect murder bloodshed and being given sleepless nights filled with fear; this is a more subtle storyline than that. The tale is as delicate as spider’s silk, and weaves a web that will trap you inside and make it impossible for you to escape until you reach the end. The detailed writing packs every sentence with vivid pictures and atmosphere.<br/>I listened to it on audiobook, rather than reading it, and it was a great escape from my housework! I really liked the narrator, too and thought she did a brilliant job.<br/>The story itself starts with a fascinating set-up that hooked me from the start, and I was really keen to find out more. There were times when I found Gracie a little pathetic, but there are reasons why she is the way she is, which are slowly revealed.<br/>The Sister features a lot of twists and turns that are intricately woven and well-written, and is a good read but just falls short of the promised greatness. Louise Jensen is an author with a lot of potential; one who I will watch eagerly in the future.

Intruiging

Any additional comments?

The story is a bit far fetched. Anna was horrible and in reality, anyone would've thrown her out of their house after a day! Grace was too gullible. I persevered with the book as the story line was intriguing even though it was a bit unbelievable. It's got a lot of good reviews so I wouldn't put anyone off reading it. I only finished reading it a few days ago and have already forgotten what it was about really. Maybe it's just me!

Rather immature novel

I didn't enjoy listening to the reader's speech impediment either and the story was very weakly writtem
