Review: The Half Sister by Sandi Jones

Title: The Half Sister
Author: Sandi Jones
Published: June 2020, Minotaur Books
Format: ARC Paperback, 320 pages
Source: Goodreads

Her arrival will ruin everything

Kate and Lauren. Sisters who are always there for each other. But as they gather for their weekly Sunday lunch, a knock on the door changes everything.

The new arrival, Jess, claims to be their half-sister, but that would mean the unthinkable . . . That she’s the secret daughter of their beloved, recently deceased father Harry. Their mother Rose is devastated and Kate and Lauren refuse to believe Jess’s lies.

But as the fall-out starts it’s clear that each is hiding secrets and that perhaps this family isn’t as perfect as they appear.

Where there was truth, now there are lies and only one thing is certain, their half-sister’s arrival has ruined everything . . .

My thoughts: This is the third book I've read by Sandi Jones and I absolutely love her writing. She has certainly mastered the psychological thriller/domestic suspense genre and this latest one definitely proves that.

I love how addicting these books are and this one is no exception. It slowly pulls you in with an entertaining read about a family that is literally torn-apart when a stranger shows up claiming to be the daughter of their father, who recently passed. From there, secrets start to unravel and sides are taken and you just aren't quite sure who is trustworthy.

I found myself totally glued to the pages, unsure where things where heading and I loved that. I also loved how the story was told, alternating from the two sisters points of view. The sisters relationship was already strained and now you add in this stranger and things become even more strained as one sister believes Jess and one does not. 

This book takes you on such a crazy ride and all the twists and turns will keep you on your toes until the very end. It is definitely a binge-worthy type of read and I cannot believe I waited so long to read this one. The only good thing is that I don't have to wait as long until her next book comes out!
