This is a book that sucks you in and makes you suspicious, right from the start. Because of how easy it would be to spoil this, I will keep my review short. Hepworth built this fantastic atmosphere that has you anxiously waiting for the shoe to drop. While I suspected what was happening, it in no way affected how much I didn’t want to put this book down. I loved Fern. She was endearing and drew you into her orbit. I loved watching her weave magic around the library she worked in. Her twin, Rose, wasn’t as endearing, and I found her too overbearing. These sisters are complete opposites, yet one of them isn’t “The Good Sister.” A very enjoyable read from start to finish. I am definitely a new fan. Thank you, St. Martin’s, for sending this along!
The Good Sister is available on Amazon for $14.99.
About the Book:
From the outside, everyone might think Fern and Rose are as close as twin sisters can be: Rose is the responsible one and Fern is the quirky one. But the sisters are devoted to one another and Rose has always been Fern’s protector from the time they were small.
Fern needed protecting because their mother was a true sociopath who hid her true nature from the world, and only Rose could see it. Fern always saw the good in everyone. Years ago, Fern did something very, very bad. And Rose has never told a soul. When Fern decides to help her sister achieve her heart’s desire of having a baby, Rose realizes with growing horror that Fern might make choices that can only have a terrible outcome. What Rose doesn’t realize is that Fern is growing more and more aware of the secrets Rose, herself, is keeping. And that their mother might have the last word after all.
