The Half Sister by Sandie Jones
Sisters Kate and Lauren couldn’t be more different. When a total stranger shows up at their mother’s house while they’re having lunch, their world’s are turned upside down. The girl claims to be their half-sister, with a DNA test as proof. Suddenly secrets that have been buried for decades are revealed, secrets that threaten to tear the family apart.
The Half Sister is told in the first-person, alternating between the perspectives of Kate and Lauren. I found myself identifying more with Lauren and I’m not sure why.
When I first read the synopsis of The Half Sister, I had no idea how the story was going to unfold. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the twisty thriller that presented itself. The pacing was significantly slower than Jones’ last book The First Mistake, but it was still a quick read, and thoroughly more plausible. If you like twisty, domestic thrillers, The Half Sister is for you. It will keep you guessing right up until the end.
