Publisher's Summary

"I did something terrible, Grace. I hope you can forgive me."
Grace hasn't been the same since the death of her best friend, Charlie. She is haunted by Charlie's words the last time she saw her and, in a bid for answers, opens an old memory box of Charlie's. It soon becomes clear there was a lot she didn't know about her best friend.
When Grace starts a campaign to find Charlie's father, Anna, a girl claiming to be Charlie's sister, steps forward. For Grace, finding Anna is like finding a new family, and soon Anna has made herself very comfortable in Grace and her boyfriend Dan's home.
But something isn't right. Things disappear, Dan's acting strangely, and Grace is sure that someone is following her. Is it all in Grace's mind? Or as she gets closer to discovering the truth about both Charlie and Anna, is Grace in terrible danger?
There was nothing she could have done to save Charlie. Or was there?

The Sister, A Gripping Story....

Would you consider the audio edition of The Sister to be better than the print version?

I really enjoyed the audio version of The Sister, I think audio and print versions of stories go hand in hand together.


Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character was Grace as I found it really easy to imagine her in my mind and really felt for her throughout the story.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

I enjoyed the parts where Grace thought back about Charlie as she discovered more about her life and secrets. I also loved the scenes with her granddad.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did feel emotional when her cat got killed and she was burring it. And when Grace thought of Charlie and her time with her.


Any additional comments?

The Sister is a really emotional and some what chilling story about Grace as she tries to work out what Charlie did before she died. I loved how this book hops from her thought of Charlie in the past and her discoveries of what Charlie did and who Anna really is after she claims to be Charlies sister and poison her cat. Will she find out or will Anna do more damage in her life? Listen to this audio book to find out.

Weaves a delicate tale

Any additional comments?

This is not your usual psychological thriller. Do not listen to The Sister if you expect murder bloodshed and being given sleepless nights filled with fear; this is a more subtle storyline than that. The tale is as delicate as spider’s silk, and weaves a web that will trap you inside and make it impossible for you to escape until you reach the end. The detailed writing packs every sentence with vivid pictures and atmosphere.
I listened to it on audiobook, rather than reading it, and it was a great escape from my housework! I really liked the narrator, too and thought she did a brilliant job.
The story itself starts with a fascinating set-up that hooked me from the start, and I was really keen to find out more. There were times when I found Gracie a little pathetic, but there are reasons why she is the way she is, which are slowly revealed.
The Sister features a lot of twists and turns that are intricately woven and well-written, and is a good read but just falls short of the promised greatness. Louise Jensen is an author with a lot of potential; one who I will watch eagerly in the future.
