If we could rate books with more than five stars then this book would have an infinite amount of stars. The twists and turns in this story played with my mind and though by a certain part of the story I had already realized certain truths, I was completely caught unaware by certain revelations. This well-developed story and strong characters will psychologically grip your mind and bend and twist it until you feel it down to your very soul.

Good story line, A little slow at times really dumb main characters. A little on the predictable side but overall worth the read

Alittle slow in the beginning. Gets better after the first 80 pages. Fairly predictable, but still worth the time.

From the moment I turned the first page I was hooked, and trying to figure out just what was going on here. A real roller coaster ride for sure, and you don’t know who is telling the truth or what is going to happen next, or who will end up surviving. A tale that is powerful, a bond between sisters, and yet one has not been seen by the other for years, and the date of her leaving is just around the corner as the book opens. I cannot imagine not having my sisters in my life, or my father taking my sister and not me, the ultimate form of rejection. This is a story of healing, but at a great cost, and you will wonder who is paranoid and who is lying, and how to sort it all out. What you see here isn’t what you get, in more ways than one, and right until the last page, when the last shoe is dropped, your heart is going to be in your throat. A thriller for sure, a mystery yes, a page-turner, and full of suspense, and betrayal, a real don’t miss read! I received this book through Ededweiss and HarperCollins Publishers, and was not required to give a positive review

Sister Sister by Sue Fortin is a recommended psychological thriller. Currently Clare, a solicitor, and her husband, Luke, a painter, and their two daughters are living with her mother, an arrangement that has worked out well for all of them. Twenty years ago Clare's father took her little sister, Alice, on a trip to the USA and never returned. Her mother has been pining away for her missing daughter ever since, even buying and putting aside presents for her yearly. Over the years they have hired investigators to look for Alice, but nothing turned up. Then when a letter from Alice suddenly appears, everyone is elated that there will be a reunion with the missing daughter/sister. What seems like a wonderful heartwarming visit soon turns into tension-filled days as Clare's suspicions about Alice's behavior begin to rise. Sister Sister is certainly technically well-written and the story will keep your interest. You will want to continue to read the story to see what happens to the characters. It is a good choice for a vacation read or an airplane book. It will hold your interest but you won't cry if you misplace it. Many readers are going to be thinking that they have heard very similar stories before and this one is equally predictable. There is nothing truly shocking that happens in it nor are the twists really surprising. You will likely have already predicted what is going to happen long before any of the characters, besides Clare, have a clue. Although I read it to the end and basically enjoyed it, Sister Sister is not without its problems - beyond the predictability. Clare starts out as an intriguing character but quickly becomes a bit bumbling and insipid. She is supposedly an intelligent woman who is a lawyer. She should be able to logically collect evidence and present a well-supported case. Instead she becomes a bit of a shirking violet, afraid of hurt feelings. It is also illogical that no one else in the family is suspicious of anything and that they turn on Clare so quickly and easily. Her mother should have had suspicions too. Even if you want to believe, that doesn't mean you don't use your head. Luke is an idiot who should have been supporting his wife. Clare, though, mainly acts out, whines, and throws out suspicions without presenting evidence. Even a simple, "Alice did this, then this, then this. Why is that acceptable?" And, come on Clare: use that cell phone, take pictures, gather evidence and supporting proof. Disclosure: My review copy was courtesy of HarperCollins.

This book could be very good with another edit. The main character is an attorney. As an educated person, she would NOT say "Her and me went ...", nor would she say (for example), "He complimented him and I." The author seems to have a problem with using "me" as an object and "I" as a subject. The grammar is so bad the reader is brought up short with a "What?!" There is also at least one place where she calls one of the male characters "Luke" which is the husband's name. Ms. Fortin should have someone edit her book for grammatical errors by characters who would not make those mistakes.

This was good mystery. The story has a lot of twist and turns. The story is about two sisters who were split apart when they were young. The sisters find each other later in life and meet and this is where the story takes place. I did find I already knew what was going to happened and who was behind all the weird stuff going on. The story shows how people can be very manipulative and easily turn people against each other. I did enjoy this story and all the twists and turns it offered. *Thanks NetGalley for letting me read this for my honest opinion.*
