‘You don’t deserve a sister…’
Lizzy Beresford is at home alone when she hears a strange noise. Running downstairs to check, she discovers a disturbing letter addressed to her.
But who sent it?
As Lizzy receives more unsettling messages, she begins to doubt those closest to her – her boyfriend, her neighbours, her friends. Because the mystery sender seems to know everything about her.
And they want to destroy her perfect life.
Desperate for answers, Lizzy reaches out to her sister, Emma. She used to be her best friend. But they haven’t spoken in years…
Surrounded by secrets and lies, Lizzy doesn’t know if she should trust her sister. Is the truth more shocking than Lizzy ever imagined?
Lizzy is loved up with her boyfriend Joe, living in a quaint cottage she rents from the man who she manages a shop for. Her life isn’t perfect as she hasn’t spoken to her sister for quite a few years but otherwise it’s good until she starts receiving disturbing letters.
This is one of those stories that apart from Lizzy, I didn’t trust anyone. I was desperately trying to work out who could be behind the letters and I was so certain I had it sussed, only to realise I’d been wrong all along.
This was a quick read that I flew through as the tension mounts and things for Lizzy get more disturbing. The author really has you caring for the main character so you worry about them making everything that is happening affect you even more.
The Silent Sister is a suspenseful and thrilling read that had me hooked and turning those pages. A deliciously dark and twisted read. Shalini Boland is without a doubt the queen of twists and she never disappoints. Another great read.
My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
