Welcome to my spot on the Sister, Sister Blog Tour. I’m over the moon to be included!
Alice: Beautiful, kind, manipulative, liar.
Clare: Intelligent, loyal, paranoid, jealous.
Clare thinks Alice is a manipulative liar who is trying to steal her life.
Alice thinks Clare 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.
Sister, Sister is quite the thriller. It has it all – it’s fast-paced, gripping, dark and intriguing. But chief among those components, it’s tense. Very tense. At one point so absorbed was I in a particularly thrilling scene, I actually spilt my drink. The plot boasts varying themes of mystery, betrayal, suspense. It’s just brilliant. And not to mention addictive. Immensely addictive. I thoroughly recommend reading it. This and Sue Fortin’s previous novels. She is a fabulous writer.
Claire lives a happy life with her husband, two young daughters and mother. But something that has tortured her always is the loss of her sister, who was taken on holiday by her father when she was four years old. They never returned. It is the piece of the jigsaw that has always been missing from her life. She’s hired private investigators, she scoured social media, she has hunted high and low for her beloved sister. But found nothing. Now, years later, Alice has made contact. Alice has found them. Finally Claire has the missing piece of the jigsaw. Finally she has the sister she’s looked so long for.
But soon, she realises that Alice isn’t the person she expected, isn’t the sister she remembers. Soon, her joy at the reunion crumbles and something else rises up in its place. Because Alice is different, Alice is strange. Alice is playing games.
This book makes you question everything. You think you know what is coming in this book, then Sue Fortin pulls the rug out from under your feet and proves that you were not even in the ‘correct’ region.
Is Claire imagining the things Alice is doing, her jealousy and paranoia spurring her on into believing fiction? Is she going crazy? Or is she right and everyone else is blind, susceptible to the games Alice is playing?
This is a brilliant book. Engaging characters, engrossing plot, well-written. I really, really enjoyed Sister, Sister. It’s surpassed all my expectations. Sister, Sister is one fabulous read. Thoroughly recommended!
Addictive. Dark. Tense.
