Throughout this book I was both frustrated and proud of Lizzy. She was really getting on my nerves after the anonymous letters started arriving as she was getting SO worked up about it that it was affecting the rest of her life. Okay, so as things ram up, I get it and now I am as concerned as she is. The ending will totally blow you away though! Wow..... I said outloud, to no one in the house, "You've got to be kidding me! OMG!" Ha! I read to finish the book--I'm glad I did, but it was hard to get there at times.

Author Shalini Boland has done it again by giving us another fantastic psychological thriller. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and is a real page turner. Lizzy and Joe live together and she starts getting mysterious letters followed by other weird things that happen to her and then to her estranged sister. When I thought I had it figured out, I found out I was wrong. There are lots of twists and turns in this book and I certainly did not see that ending coming! I liked all the characters except for Joe who is very unlikable right from the start! I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a fantastic thriller that you will not want to put down. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

It starts with a letter addressed to Lizzie ... a strange creepy note. But there is no one around..so who delivered it? And then there's another letter ...and yet another. Someone breaks into the store where she works and leaves another message there. Whoever the culprit is ... they know where she lives, they know where she works , they seem to know everything about her. So who would want to hurt her this way? She lives with Joe, who has become more controlling over time .. is is him? Her best friend is somewhat envious of her ... is it her? She had a falling out with her sister years ago ... would she be this mean and cruel? Her friend's brother has a crush on her .... is this his way of getting attention? And the man who keeps asking her out .... is he upset at her refusals? Surrounded by secrets and lies, Lizzy doesn't know who she can trust .. This is a well written who-dun-it surrounded by characters who may or may not be who you think they are. Just a tad predictable, I was still surprised by the ending... never saw this one coming. Many thanks to the author / Bookouture / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy of this psychological thriller. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

The mighty Bookouture do it again! Boy oh boy did I enjoy this! What a fricking marvellous psychological thriller from the masterful Shalini Boland. I have read a couple of her others and loved them as much as this one. I'm actually glad to have just discovered that there are more books in her back catalogue so I can binge on her books when I get the first chance. In each of the books I have read by Bolind, she masterfully grabs you and pulls you in to the story. Once you're in her grasp there's no hope of sleep until dawn. Don't fight it, it's no use! "The Silent Sister" begins with Lizzy Beresford receiving and reading a note that states: "You're my only obsession." But who sent it? Lizzy's initial thought is that it's from her estranged sister, Emma. Both her boyfriends, Joe, and her friend and co-worker, Pippa, are very concerned that Lizzy is being stalked. Then another letter arrives: "Dearest Lizzy, I love to watch you." This prompts Lizzy to get the police involved in an effort to get to the truth of the matter. She no longer trusts anyone anymore, even those she has been close to for many years and she starts to suspect everyone. You really feel for Lizzy as a character as her fear turns into paranoia. This is a tautly plotted tense read with a lot of secrets throughout, the writing is easy to read and follow. There are twists aplenty and there are a number of possible suspects making it difficult to predict who the culprit actually is. I loved the ending too. Overall, this is an outstanding novel. Highly recommended. If you enjoy psychological thrillers you'll have a hard time putting this one down! Many thanks to Bookouture for an ARC.
