Publisher's Summary

From the author of My Husband's Wife, Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Blood Sisters by Jane Corry, read by Zoe Thorne and Emilia Fox.

Three little girls set off to school one sunny May morning. Within an hour one of them is dead.

Fifteen years later Alison and Kitty are living separate lives. Kitty lives in a care home. She can't speak, and she has no memory of the accident that put her there or her life before it. Art teacher Alison looks fine on the surface. But the surface is a lie. When a job in a prison comes up, she decides to take it - this is her chance to finally make things right.

But someone is watching Kitty and Alison. Someone who wants revenge for what happened that day. And only another life will do....

Really!

I dislike when authors put an unnecessary and an influential twist at the end. I kept saying "Yeah Right". This book dragged out the story in an attempt to create suspense but it only created impatience.

Annoying characters

I enjoyed another if the author's books, my husband's wife. It wasn't great but good enough. This mess, however, was terrible. The story lacked any sort of verisimilitude or cohesion. It dragged on and on and on. The main character was a complete dipsh*t and made ridiculously dumb choices. The dialogue was laughably bad. People simply don't talk this way. Just a painfully bad story with whiny, helpless characters you want to slap sense into. Don't bother!

Disappointed

I loved her other books and was excited about this one but it never went anywhere. It was slow and drug on. I didn't finish it.

Dragged On & Whiney Characters

I enjoyed this author's other title My Husband's Wife, but this one not so much. The main character irritated the hell out of me. She was whiney, and irritating. This story dragged out unnecessarily with no real story line or developed characters. The surprises were not so surprising and boring.

Far fetched but has some redeeming qualities

First off, the performances of both narrators are excellent. Emilia Fox is always wonderful!

Plotwise, I was definitely in suspense quite a bit, and actually gasped at one point. Some of the twists and reveals were extremely far-fetched, but suspension of disbelief still allowed me to enjoy.

I came away from this book with a great deal of empathy for Kitty— the way Corry describes her as a child versus the adult we meet is heartbreaking. The way she expresses the thoughts of a brain-damaged individual was really incredible to me.

Okay

A good story but very very far fetched and too much going on to make it believable. Towards the end I just wanted it to finish.

damn good read. would highly recommend.

I loved this book. it had me guessing a lot through it which I loved. it was easy to listen too. although the jumping from one time in there life to another sometimes was a little hard to keep up with. characters are very believable, and you felt for them

Disappointing

I really enjoyed the last Jane Corry book on Audible and was really looking forward to this one. I was disappointed. The twists were predictable (I had them worked out from nearly the start) and a lot of the other story was implausible. I wont say too much as I don't want to put in any spoilers. I stuck it out to the end in the hope a great twist would turn it around but unfortunately it didn't work for me.

Most amazing read

After reading "My husbands wife" which I thoroughly
enjoyed I did not expect this book to be quite as good - but it was totally amazing, from start to finish the story line has several twists and turns which could not be guessed. I do hope that this great author has more of the same to look forward to in the future.

Rather exciting

I was gripped and the story does not just finish but goes on a little longer thsn expected. Harsh reality and secrets create a devious interplay. Pity some aspects were just a little too far fetched.

I loved this book

Amazing story with a few twists and turns. Excellent narration and very likeable characters. Kitty made me laugh out loud with her comments. Can't wait for Jane Corry's next book.

great start, but long ending

The book started out great with intriguing mysteries. But the mysteries were not that interesting in the end. It seemed to have an unnecessarily long ending.

very dragged out

I'm glad I finished the book. The last 1/4 of the book was probably a 3 star. I hated the first 3/4. it was very dragged out. I hated it that much it made me frustrated.

More and more unfolds as you read!

Slow to start
The more you read/listen the more hooked you get, then I couldn't put it down or away.
Not too many characters to confuse you, read does a good job speaking in character for each.

hard going

I've listened to some good books lately but this wasn't one of them.
I struggled to like the characters and found the plot a bit disappointing. I did finish it so thats a plus.
