Before I share my review, can I just give a minute to praise that cover! Isn’t it just lush! I can tell you that combined with the blurb, it drew me in immediately!

Here’s what the official blurb says:

I turn to where I left my baby in his pushchair and pull up short. With a racing heart, I look around wildly, fear gripping my stomach. I only looked away for a moment. The pushchair and my baby are gone.

Kelly is taking her twin daughters to their first day of school, ushering them into the classroom, her heartbreaking to think they might not need her anymore when she turns around and sees that her newborn baby is gone.

As a desperate search ensues, baby Noah is quickly found – parked in front of a different classroom. But when Kelly reaches forward to comfort him, she finds something tucked beside his blanket. A locket that belonged to her sister Freya. A locket Kelly hasn’t seen since the day Freya died.

And then Kelly’s perfectly-ordered life begins to unravel…

We Were Sisters is a heart-pounding suspense thriller that will grip you until the very last page. Fans of Behind Closed Doors, Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train won’t be able to stop reading this incredible book.

My thoughts:

A dark and sinister tale of families and the damage that they can do to one another, “We Were Sisters” tells the story of Kelly, whose past has come back to haunt her.

A whole cast of quite unreliable and unlikeable narrators provided me with a dark and twisted read. While I didn’t particularly like any of the characters in the book, this is exactly what made this novel work for me. I loved to hate them! Lots of devious twists and tension building as the story unfolds and the truths are slowly revealed.

All the way through, I kept guessing and having my mind changed as the author teased me with another red herring. I was compelled to keep reading and it was definitely one that kept me up past my bedtime!

My emotions were in turmoil throughout, as I swung from empathy to rage to despair.

A cracking read and perfect to lose yourself in on a rainy afternoon.
