Review: The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain

The Silent Sister
by Diane Chamberlain

Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Pages: 352
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Riley MacPherson has spent her entire life believing that her older sister Lisa committed suicide as a teenager. Now, over twenty years later, her father has passed away and she's in New Bern, North Carolina cleaning out his house when she finds evidence to the contrary. Lisa is alive. Alive and living under a new identity. But why exactly was she on the run all those years ago, and what secrets are being kept now? As Riley works to uncover the truth, her discoveries will put into question everything she thought she knew about her family. Riley must decide what the past means for her present, and what she will do with her newfound reality.

Kritters Thoughts:  Riley MacPherson is returning to her childhood home after her dad passes away suddenly and she returns to check on her brother and settle all of the things.  I knew from the prequel that I reviewed yesterday that there was definitely some drama in Riley's childhood and past and it was going to travel into her future/present.

Riley returns home and through some sleuthing on her own she finds out the real reasons why her childhood was hard and stressful and why her parents were the way they were.  She finds out the real truth behind her sister and the past and then tries to change the future.    

I am being vague because I don't want to ruin a darn thing in this book.  There are so many revelations that are worth every page of the book

I knew from the prequel that there were going to be secrets and we would get to the bottom of them.  Because I read a lot of books, I was able to predict what was going to happen and maybe guessed the secrets before I should have, but it didn't ruin my reading of the book.  I can handle a predictable book if the story and plot are still good and this one was better than good.  

I have only read a few Diane Chamberlain books, but loved each of them.  I definitely want to want to continue reading her backlist and hopefully catch up soon!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
