Publisher's Summary

Forgive and forget? In this twisty thriller of psychological suspense, the past and present collide for two sisters who survived a tragedy - and must now survive the truth behind it.

It’s been twenty years since Cara’s boyfriend died in a horrible accident and her sister, Anna, went to prison. The tragedy has become a local legend, but Cara has moved past her grief to have a successful career and a happy family. Pity about Anna. Recently released from incarceration, she’s struggling with addiction, guilt, and shame - a shattered life. Cara’s forgiveness seems to be the only thing that helps her pick up the pieces.

But as Anna pulls herself together, her memories of that night on the bridge start to come into focus. And few of them match her sister’s.

As past secrets unfold and nothing is what it seems anymore, Anna desperately searches for the truth. But what if Cara doesn’t want her to find it?

Should be called “Sins of Her Sister” (or something equivalent)

Geezus, this was literally a story about an evil, vicious, bitter, selfish, righteous, devious, heartless, manipulative, jealous, resentful, fake and beyond unlikable woman named Cara and her sister Anna. But Cara was soooo despicable it kind of ruined the book and I was not content with the ending, but it was somewhat fitting for the story.
Randomly I noticed that in the story, any desk person at any institution or place of business (i.e. nurse at the nurse’s station, the person checking IDs at a mental health facility etc) the author portrays them as contemptuous, incompetent, grumpy, lowly workers— which was strange, she made every character so negative.
Cara is horrid in every single area of her life: at work, with her parents, sister, husband— she is a professional at throwing people under the bus for her own gain.
I don’t really know how I feel about this book because I’m so disgusted with the main character and her behavior and this story was plausible and believable so it was hard to get in the mind of someone that could possibly exist— I don’t know if this is a good or bad thing, the ability to write and bring to life such a believable and evil character. For example if this book was a movie, whomever they pick to play Cara, you would very likely hate her as an actress from then on, even in other roles, the character just has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. There is a balance between that and an overall good plot and I think it was pushed too much to one side.
If you don’t mind or can tolerate all the pettiness, unfairness of some people’s circumstance maybe you might like the book.

Through the eyes of a psychopath

I loved this book. It was like looking at the world through a psychopath’s eyes. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, so I’ll just say that I kinda figured out what happened in 1997 ... but I wasn’t sure how the book would end. I was hoping for justice, but I liked the ending anyway. I will look for more books by this author. The narrator was great, too.

Not my cup of tea.

Depressing. I couldn't identify with the main character. Story was not believable. Just left me with a bad feeling.

Good narration but the story not so much

First off it takes half a chapter for Cara to respond to anything. Asked a question and the author talks about everything but the answer to that question as she uses that time to give background on something. It happened so many times I kept expecting it. It only took a few pages to see Cara as a self preserving creep. The author spent over half the book showing us how much so before the story even got moving. I kept falling asleep and then rewinding to find my place. It was very predictable.

Kept me guessing until the end...

I really could not stop listening because I wanted to find out what the heck happened! A good psychological mystery, though not what I would consider suspenseful. Definitely worth the time it takes to listen.

Sibling rivalry

A sad story of the different lives of two sisters, after a tragedy very well narrated. Hopefully the protagonist will never know a moment’s peace in the long run (but her ruthless character makes me doubt this.) Although it was fairly obvious what had happened the story was so well conceived and the weakness of the father and police prejudice made it believable.

Brilliantly written

The story line is brilliantly written about the 2 sisters lives of love and hatred, the twist at the end was a shock but obvious when you think of it. Hope the Author writes more books like this. Thoroughly enjoyed the book
