  • Very Enjoyable Read!

    Highly readable psychological thriller with a stupendous twist! There are two parallel stories running with multiple characters and changing timelines. It's all easily kept track off and creates a full and rich story. Alison James is consistent in her writing and stories - very enjoyable!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great Twist

    Thank you to Net Galley and Alison James for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review. Her Sister’s Child comes out November 26, 2020 – be sure to grab yourself a copy. This book is told from the point of view of multiple characters, in different timelines. Paula is a divorced mother of two, filled with the guilt of never knowing that happened to her dead sister’s baby. Charlie is a new teen mom who’s trying to find her way. Marian is an older woman who has always wanted a baby of her own. Though each woman is at a different stage of life, their paths cross in the most unexpected ways. This book was a great read and I was hooked really early on. The author did a good job of making each character just as entertaining as the next, I never felt like I wanted to rush through one characters story line to get back to another story line. Seeing as there were multiple points of view I wish each chapter was labeled with a date so that I could have a clearer idea at the start of the chapter. There was an excellent twist that completely threw me for a loop and as I started to uncover it was quite pleased with how unexpected it was! Overall, I really enjoyed this one and would recommend it for your next read!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A good psychological thriller

    Alison James has put together a tale that is intense, suspenseful and one that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you try and piece together the puzzle of the mystery. It invokes a range of emotions within you and added to that some twist and turns, makes for a very entertaining read. The writing is strong, the narrative sharp and overall has been well executed. I enjoyed the way the book is structured and how it plays out from multiple points of view over different time periods. Each character is complex and brings their own personality to life through the pages and gives the reader an in-depth view to each of them, the events that have occurred and how they all form together in the present. The first half of Her Sister’s Child does move along at a slightly slower pace to begin with as the foundation is laid, but at no time did I want to stop reading the book. Once it gets going though, it does so at high speed making for more of a thrilling second half. I also felt that the ending was a little bit rushed, but was still satisfying in its outcome. Her Sister’s Child is a gripping tale that really pulls on the heartstrings. It is thrilling, emotive and will have you completely invested in it from start to finish. It is a great psychological thriller to lose yourself in and I look forward to seeing what Alison James comes up with for her readers next.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Her Sister's Child

    I enjoyed Her Sister's Child (Alison James) but didn't care for all the back and forth timelines and different characters. The story was good, with twists and some edge of your seat moments. I'm looking forward to reading the next book by Ms James. I want to thank NetGalley and Bookouture for an early copy to review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • So Addictive!

    I am so pleased that I was given the opportunity to read Her Sister's Child as it was a truly tremendous psychological thriller! I loved the exciting plotline and the pacing moved along at a fair rate of knots. Full of thrills and totally addictive, it held my attention from the very first chapter, but I could never have imagined what the explosive ending would reveal. I thought the characterisation really befitted this story, with relatable and believable characters including both the good and the bad. This brilliant story was a domestic-based mystery-thriller that told the tale of three very different women at varying stages of life, whose lives intertwine in unexpected ways. It was masterfully executed by the author, Alison James whose vivid and suspenseful writing style continued to wow me. I shall be looking out for more by Alison James who has great talent and I intend to read her 'Detective Rachel Prince' series. I recommend Her Sister's Child as a hugely worthwhile and an excellent read. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!
