Review: The Sister by Louise Jensen

The Sister

Goodreads:  ‘I did something terrible, Grace. I hope you can forgive me…’

Grace hasn't been the same since the death of her best friend Charlie. She is haunted by Charlie's last words, and in a bid for answers, opens an old memory box of Charlie's. It soon becomes clear there was a lot she didn't know about her best friend.

Kritters Thoughts:  Told through two different timelines, Now and Then, Grace recalls how her friendship with Charlie began in the Then chapters and the Now deals with Grace in recovery after the death of Charlie.  Charlie's death is a mystery for awhile in the book, so the reader has to just blindly follow Grace through these timelines.  

I liked this one, but didn't love it.  I felt as though there were a few mysteries going on at once and there was quite a bit of teasing the reader with reminding them how much they didn't know and what mysteries were up in the air to solve.  

This book took a few twists and turns, some I predicted and some that surprised me.  I was sad by the ones I predicted, I felt they were just a bit glaring, but the ones that surprised me were great.  I liked that I didn't get them all and that they didn't come out of left field and seem implausible.  Sorry for the vagueness - don't want to spoil!

This was my first read by Louise Jensen and I am intrigued to dive into her blacklist.  If you have ready any of her previous books, where should I go from here?

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