From Sandie Jones, the New York Times bestselling author of the Hello Sunshine Book Club pick The Other Woman, comes The Half Sister; a compelling new domestic suspense novel about a family who is forever changed when a stranger arrives at their door.
Meet the half sister, and unravel the ties that blind us.
Sisters Kate and Lauren meet for Sunday lunch every week without fail, especially after the loss of their father.
But a knock at the door is about to change everything. A young woman by the name of Jess holds a note with the results of a DNA test, claiming to be their half sister.
As the fallout starts, it’s clear that they are all hiding secrets, and perhaps this family isn’t as perfect as it appears.
Two sisters, Lauren and Kate, are visiting their mother when they get some interesting news. A young woman knocks on the door, and claims to be their half-sister. She has proof, a DNA test. The sisters react differently to the news, with one being more welcoming than the other.
Told using alternating points of view of Lauren and Kate. The characters are well-developed, and the different points of view work well for this story. As the story progresses, secrets from the past and present are revealed. It seems the sisters didn’t know one another as well as they thought, and they both have struggles in their lives.
A great read for fans of domestic suspense with family drama. Fast-paced, entertaining, and clever.
I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
