Also the owner of: http://silversolara.blogspot.com I enjoy reading historical fiction and mystery. I live in Pennsylvania and am a retired business teacher.
Two Sisters, one jealous sister, and a trail of unbelievable acts.
Could you really be that jealous of someone and have such a desire for revenge that you would go to any lengths to ruin that person's life?
We meet Allie as she is released from prison after ten years for a crime she didn't commit, Emma, Allie's sister who raised Allie's daughter, and Caroline, Allie's 15-year-old daughter.
Allie was released from prison and returned to her home town in hopes of reconciling with her daughter, but all wasn't easy especially in the small town of Brunswick where the residents didn't forget what happened ten years ago and wouldn't change what they believed.
Allie knew she hadn't killed a man, but the jury and the town still accused her and shunned her.
Being a felon in her small, home town wasn't working out too well for Allie. Emma subtly and cruelly made things difficult for her sister and niece and would stop at nothing to keep Caroline as her own. Caroline was embarrassed to have anyone know her mother was out of prison and back in Brunswick.
All of the characters had a lot of baggage to deal with along with the jealousy factor that definitely did a lot of personal damage.
The characters in SISTER DEAR were for the most part not trustworthy.
Emma was a sister that I am glad was not mine.
The sheriff was not likable at all and definitely a sheriff who had some secrets.
I liked Allie and Caroline, though, because they seemed genuine.
SISTER DEAR is unmistakably a tension-building page turner that keeps your interest from the opening sentence.
Be sure you have a lot of time when you begin SISTER DEAR because you won’t be able to stop reading.
The last 20 pages became even more suspenseful...I was nervous. :) 5/5
