Abi has spent her life in the shadow of her stunningly beautiful, glamorous older sister, Cleo. Headhunted as model when she was 16, Cleo has been all but lost to Abi for the last 20 years, with only a fleeting visit or brief email to connect them. So when Abi is invited to spend the summer in Cleo's large London home with her sister's perfect family, she can't bring herself to say no. Maybe Cleo is finally as keen as Abi to regain the closeness they shared in their youth? But Abi is in for a shock. Could having beauty, wealth and fame lead to more unhappiness than not having them? And who in the family really is the ugly sister?

The Ugly Sister is a light read that deals with some very real choices people make in their lives. I appreciate the struggles the characters go through and the spots of humor thrown in there elicited more than one LOL from me.
The characters seemed very real. I have known people with these personalities and Jane Fallon nailed them!
I have not listened to Alison Reid before The Ugly Sister. She did a fantastic job with the characters. They seemed to really fit the characters!
Abby was the most memorable character because her thoughts and actions stayed true to her character.
I did enjoy the book and it was performed well, but it seemed to be building up to something that just never panned out the way i was hoping for. It was like the author was afraid to be bold enough to just go for it and stretch the main character a little beyond her comfort zone. Would have liked a bit more length, more detail, and more dimension. It was a sweet story with an endearing character, but frankly left me wanting a bit more.
