Book Review | The Good Sister by Jess Ryder

Two sisters. One secret… A lie that could destroy them both.

When her father dies, Josie is devastated to uncover he led a secret life: another house, another family and a half-sister called Valentina.

Both with red hair and icy blue eyes, Josie and Valentina could be mistaken for twins. But the similarities end there…

Josie – Sweet, reserved, jealous, thief.
Valentina – Care-free, confident, dangerous, liar.

Two sisters. One survivor.

A nail-bitingly tense and unputdownable read that will keep you turning pages into the night. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and Sister Sister.

The Good Sister

I started this one without reading the blurb first as I sometimes like to ‘go in blind’ as they say. For this one I’m really glad I did as it added a couple of extra twists that I would have known about before otherwise. I think I started this one Sunday morning and stayed up until half 11 to finish it (late for me haha!). I just couldn’t put it down!

It’s not a particularly long book at 230 pages but I didn’t feel like we missed out on anything. The chapters were broken up nicely so it flowed really well. The chapters go back and forth between Josie and Valentina but they aren’t actually labelled. It’s easy to tell at the beginning but it gets more difficult towards the end which I actually really liked – it added another level and made me second guess the characters as well as my own judgement.

I don’t want to give too much away on this one as it’s such a fabulous book – you need to read it knowing as little as possible! Well written, gripping and gets your heart racing – absolutely loved it! One of my favourite books of the year so far! Thank you to Bookouture and Netgalley for my copy.

You can get a copy here – just 99p at the moment!
