Cruel Sister by David Conway is a juicy little novella about how the world really works. When their father, Conner decides to retire, Niamh and Brenna Ryan are thrown into a power struggle that will either be the making of them or the destruction of an empire that Conner has spent years building from virtually nothing but the lint in his pockets. The first shock is when 82-year old Conner leaves the reigns of Fayne Corporation in the hands of his older daughter, Brenna. The announcement at his retirement party very nearly causes Niamh to lose her composure; in fact she leaves the party even before the congratulatory drinks are raised. Confronting her father later, Niamh strikes a deal to give her the opportunity to show her worth to her father and possibly change his mind about his decision. She will have one year and one of the fledgling subsidiaries of Fayne. Her task is to turn the subsidiary around and grow it by tenfold. Can she do it? Meanwhile, Brenna starts surreptitiously cleaning house at Fayne, leaving consternation and hard feelings in her wake. As the sisters move forward with their plans, their father sinks into the inevitable problems of old age, leaving them to fend for themselves. Their mother, Bridget, not wanting to take sides, holds her stock in Fayne in abstention until a shocking turn of events comes to light. Don’t miss this page turner -- tight narrative, fast action and just the right seasoning of romance make Cruel Sister a must read.
