My Rating: 4/5
From the bestselling author of Our Little Secret comes a suspenseful new thriller featuring two estranged sisters desperate to keep their deepest and darkest secret where it belongs–in the past.
Close to my heart you’ll be, sisters forever you and me…
Alexandra Van Ness has the perfect life. She lives in an idyllic resort town tucked away in the Rocky Mountains, shares a designer loft with her handsome boyfriend, Chase, and has her dream job working in child protection. Every day, Alex goes above and beyond to save children at risk.
But when her long-lost sister, Ruth, unexpectedly shows up at her door, Alex’s perfect life is upended. Growing up, Ruth was always the troublemaker, pulling Alex into her messes, and this time will be no different. Still, Alex will help Ruth under one condition: we will never, ever, talk about the past. But when trouble befalls a local child, both women are forced to confront the secrets they’ve promised to keep buried.
Utterly engrossing and claustrophobic, Hurry Home is a tantalizing reflection of the chain-and-shackles relationship between sisters that asks: what lines wouldn’t you cross for your own?
Two sisters with a complicated relationship. Alexandra is the one with the perfect life – a job in child protection services, a handsome boyfriend, and a nice home. Ruth is the troubled one, and always seems to drag Alex into her messes. Alex and Ruth haven’t been in contact for ten years, but now Ruth is on the run, and she runs to Alex for help.
Told using the alternating points of view of Alex and Ruth. The sisters are both telling their versions of events, and they don’t exactly line up. They’ve got secrets from their pasts, and it effects their current places in life.
Domestic suspense about two estranged sisters. This novel is a slow burn that is heavy on family drama. Recommended for readers who enjoy family drama and unreliable narrators.
