From the bestselling author of The Girl Who Lied

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 Claire 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 was a fast paced, enjoyable thriller to read, even if it was fairly predictable and implausible. I guessed the ending early on, but Fortin’s writing style managed to keep my interest to want to know all the details leading up to it, and I read this somewhat compulsively.

As far as the characters themselves, most of them were pretty much one note except for the main character, Clare. But while I definitely had moments of sympathizing with her, I also couldn’t understand why someone who’s supposed to be a perfectionist control freak with a successful family and career would react to things so hastily and irrationally. There were also some plot inconsistencies that didn’t add up and I would have liked some loose ends to be tied up a bit more.

That all being said, Sister, Sister did entertain me. If you’re someone who likes to analyze and really understand all the characters and their motives in a domestic psychological thriller, I’d try something more along the lines of Lies, by TM Logan. But if you’re looking for a quick, easy to read thriller, maybe give this a shot. Bonus if you read it on kindle or nook – it’s available on both now for $2.99!
