I find it quite a nice change when a book just grabs you in the first couple of chapters. This visitor bringing an alarming contradiction to this family home would be normal. Sisters not having the sugar sweet relationship as adults is rather normal. I stayed invested in this domestic thriller and read within two days. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. Sister Kate and Lauren are having Sunday lunch with their mother and husbands at the family home when a girl turns up claiming to be their half sister. What follows is the unraveling of family secrets. I found Lauren’s husband and mother quite unlikeable. ( )

Kate is a big wig showbiz journalist who wants to have kids. Sister Lauren, who has three of her own with an abusive husband Simon, wants a career. Recently deceased father Harry and mother Rose. Woman appears at their door claiming to be their half sister. Novel revolves around unraveling lies and mysteries surrounding the family.

I didn't feel like this book was particularly gripping or well written, it felt very predictable at times and a lot of the details felt random and unneccessary. It was also strange because all reviews cited on the back of the book referenced another book by the same author, The Other Woman, which apparently was very successful, which felt a bit misleading.

Overall, it was enjoyable enough to finish, but in retrospect I would have chosen a different book to read. ( )

This was a twisty, twisty good book! Kate and her husband have struggled for years with infertility. Lauren has three children and a miserable marriage. The two sisters have never gotten along, terribly envious of one another. Rose, their mother, always sides with Lauren. Harry, their deceased father, always sided with Kate. Add in a terrible husband, a side of infidelity, and a half-sister who shows up out of the blue, claiming to have found them as the result of a DNA test and you have a shocker of a family drama. But the great thing about this novel is the characters and the relationships, and also the shocking twists and revealed secrets that keep on coming with every chapter. Sandie Jones is a master at great pacing and delicious surprises and without giving away spoilers, this one had some great ones in store!

Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader.

A perfectly fine listen that was more drawn out than it needed to be, because it could really only go one way. This book was very much also about the sister relationship, but she let the reader know about more than the characters until the very end. The relationship could have grown and shined if the characters talked earlier.

But whatever, this really is a crime novel/thriller. ( )
