    "Heart rending at times"

    At first I found the story to be slow paced, but then I'm used to listening to fast moving thrillers and murder mysteries, so I persevered. It is a well put together story and read with real feeling. I was in tears at some points and confused at others, but the ending was unexpected. I felt the emotions were incredibly believable and you can't help but be pulled into the narrative. Very enjoyable.

    Story
    "Brought to tears"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely recommend to friends,


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Beatrice's conviction that she knows her sister is questioned many times but never completely undermined.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The description of loss and grief is overpowering, It describes bereavement in such eloquent terms that it reduced me to tears.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book despite the sadder moments, there was no 'happy ending' as there isn't always in real life, no hero rushing in on a white charger but there was a satisfactory conclusion.

    "Really glad I read this, end just disappointing"

    Excellent book, loved the authors style, have already bought the next book she wrote. The narrator was excellent and it was an interesting look at relationship between two sisters and at the same time a thriller with a different twist. Only thing for me was the end was disappointing and left me kinda sat in the car, just saying... Okay! However despite this still worth a read and a very healthy 4 stars! X

    What did you like best about Sister? What did you like least?

    A bit far fetched story and I got quite bored with the way the character built


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sister?

    The ending was a bit daft


    What three words best describe Juanita Mahon’s voice?

    A bit boring


    Did Sister inspire you to do anything?

    Not listen to any other books by this author

    "intriguing plot"

    struggles initially with narrator, but, given time became accustomed to her. really liked how the story unfolds and the little twists toward the end. kept wanting to hear more, but ran out of time on dog walks! Fab diversion from wind and rain, though!!

    "Wow"

    This book really surprised me. I couldn't stop listening to it and openly cried during my commute at some parts. Great book.

    "Very impressive novel"

    This was a departure from the usual crime thrillers I usually listen to but really enjoyed this book. It has very strong female characters which leads to a more rounded book.
    Whilst they are different books, With different structures, I could see parallels with Girl On A Train and I imagine most people who enjoyed that book would enjoy this one as well.

    Story
    "A bit of a let down but not a total waste of time"

    The story was quite interesting and some of the characters were believable for the first two thirds of the book. I liked the fact that the main character was flawed in some ways. This book had a chance of turning into an intriguing thriller.... but sadly it didn't.
    The sub- plot of the cystic fibrosis trial was a bit ridiculous really. It would have been more believable and interesting- WARNING SPOILER- had Tess , for example, got involved with some drug dealers and been murdered.
    The final third of the book was repeating the fact that Beatrice loved her sister- ok we get it, everywhere you look you see reminders of your love and everything you do is driven by your love for your sister. Blaah blaah and so it goes. It was a bit nauseating.
    I dud enjoy the twist and revelation at the end though as it was unexpected.
    Juanita McMahon is clearly a mature lady and why she would narrate the part of a young woman in her 20s just didn't make sense. Her American accent was terrible.
    This book is fine to listen to on the beach and if you fall asleep for bits of it it doesn't matter. Not sure I'd bother otherwise.

    "An excellent listen"

    This was very well written. It gently but surely real to you in so that you could not put it down. As with all of the authors books, the focus was as much on relationships and feelings as on the mystery of who and why the nerd it took place. I loved it.
