Thank you to Jessica Lee at HarperCollins for giving me the chance to review The Secret Sister by K.A. Clarke and A.J. Brittany.
Can you trust a sister who is a stranger?
Ella Matthews has it all. A beautiful house, a charming husband and a precious baby daughter – her life has pretty much turned out exactly as she planned.
But when Ella’s mother tragically dies, her perfect life starts to crack. Her mother had been harbouring a life-long secret. Ella has a sister – an older sister – called Colleen.
Excited by the thought of no-longer being an only child, Ella can’t wait to find her.
But Colleen has a whirlwind past of her own. Desperate to escape her troubles, she is ready to go to any length to start afresh.
As their paths collide, someone is keeping secrets… and when Colleen mysteriously disappears without notice, Ella can’t help but question if she should have started looking for her at all…
I’m usually very skeptical when it comes to a book with multiple authors, but upon reading the blurb I was intrigued. After reading The Secret Sister, you wouldn’t think that there were two authors. It is a well crafted piece of writing that flowed very well, I thoroughly enjoyed reading. It dives straight in to the story and instantly captivates you. I loved the characters, especially the chalk and cheese personalities of Ella and Colleen, but I did find Greg a bit annoying at times. The twist at the end was absolutely superb, I didn’t see it coming. This was a wonderfully dark read.
