I am delighted to share my review with you today on Blog Tour for The Perfect Sister by Sheryl Browne
You don’t know me, but I’m your sister.’
Claire is shocked when she receives a message out of the blue from Sophie, a beautiful young woman who tells Claire that she’s their father’s secret child. Having spent years nursing her sweet little daughter Ella through a life-threatening illness whilst dealing with the emotional fall-out of a devastating marriage breakdown, Claire feels tentatively excited to meet Sophie. Perhaps she might finally have someone in the family to lean on…
As Claire welcomes her sister into her life, she’s delighted to see just how much Ella loves her new Aunt Sophie. But as the pair spend more time together, Claire begins to wonder where exactly her perfect new sister came from and what kind of person she really is. With their elderly father’s mind rapidly deteriorating, is it possible that he’s hiding something from Claire about Sophie’s sudden appearance in their lives?
When Sophie suggests a family day at the seaside, little Ella is beyond excited. But as Claire takes an important phone call from her demanding ex-husband, leaving Sophie in charge of Ella, something unthinkable happens. And as Claire rushes into the ice-cold sea towards the small, limp figure of her daughter, she realises that Sophie was watching the whole time. But why would Sophie want to hurt Claire’s precious daughter? Was trusting her new sister with Ella the biggest mistake of Claire’s life?
If you enjoyed The Girl on the Train, My Lovely Wife and Lucinda Berry’s The Perfect Child, you’ll love this heart-stopping psychological thriller from bestselling author Sheryl Browne.
I am a massive fan of Sheryl’s having read all of her books. I am happy to report that she certainly doesn’t disappoint with this gripping page turner. When we meet Claire, Sophie and Luke and follow a story that is told in alternating chapters between the characters giving some brilliant character build up.
Like always I went into this not knowing what to expect, with me not reading the blurb. The story does have an element of domestic noir which I will admit I am not normally a fan of.
I also found this story very different to Sheryl’s other psychological thrillers. When I first started reading it,the style of Sheryl’s writing took me back to her DI Matthew Adam series. Which is very gritty so I loved that.
This story is full of twists and turns with an OMG ending. Just when you think you have it all worked out Sheryl throws you totally off track.
The Perfect Sister is a story full of family secrets with some shocking revelations has the story unfolds. This book is perfect for psychological thriller fans. And I can’t wait to see what Sheryl comes up with next.
