    Gripping

    Can you trust a sister who is a stranger? Ella Matthews has it all. A beautiful house, a charming husband and a precious baby daughter – her life has pretty much turned out exactly as she planned. But when Ella’s mother tragically dies, her perfect life starts to crack. Her mother had been harbouring a life-long secret. Ella has a sister – an older sister – called Colleen. Excited by the thought of no-longer being an only child, Ella can’t wait to find her. But Colleen has a whirlwind past of her own. Desperate to escape her troubles, she is ready to go to any length to start afresh. As their paths collide, someone is keeping secrets… and when Colleen mysteriously disappears without notice, Ella can’t help but question if she should have started looking for her at all… This is a brilliant read. Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start. Love the well fleshed out characters and found them believeable. Great suspense and action with wonderful world building that adds so much to the story. Can't wait to see what the authors bring us next. Recommend reading. I was provided an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher. This is my own honest voluntary review.

    A sister you never knew

    Ella's mother has passed away and while Ella is sorting through her mother's bedroom, she comes across a shoebox that contains items that tell Ella that she has a sister that she didn't know existed. She decides to find her, but when she does, she quickly realizes that they have nothing in common. In fact her sister Colleen seems to have a past full of secrets. Ella really wants to get to know her and despite her husband's warnings, she travels to meet her only to get involved with Colleen's shady past. This story is very well written and does have a twist at the end.

    So many secrets

    I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. The authors did a really good job with the twists and turns and it constantly kept me guessing. Colleen, the secret sister, was such a mess, but when I found out her back story, I could really understand why she was the way she was. I also liked Ella, the main character. I did not see the twist ending coming at all! I can't wait to read their next book! Thank you to Netgalley and HQ Digital for the copy. All opinions expressed are my own.

    A Fantastic Read

    Can you trust a sister who is a stranger? The Secret Sister is my first book by the author duo K. A. Clarke and A. J. Brittany, although I have read some of Amanda Brittany's previous independent work, namely Traces of Her. The story opens with a short prologue that immediately sets the tone of the book and from this point I was totally engrossed in the story. Told from the perspectives of Colleen and Ella, this book crackles with tension. The cleverly crafted and intriguing plot follows the two half-sisters, Colleen and Ella. When Ella comes across a letter whilst clearing out her deceased mother’s possessions and discovers that her mother had a child before she was born, Ella decides to track down her older sister and after a couple of internet searches, she travels to Ireland for what she hopes will be a happy reunion. But Colleen's past has not been all sweetness and light, and the reunion is not a huge success. Events plummet into a nightmare for them when Colleen’s past catches up with her. I totally adored the combined descriptive styles of K. A. Clarke and A. J. Brittany, which I found to be emotive and affecting. The writing flowed effortlessly and the narrative was very well structured. The Secret Sister was a story that was packed with mystery and twists as it spiralled its way to the surprise denouement. It is a must-read for fans of the psychological thriller genre. I look forward to reading many more books from this duo. I read The Secret Sister with relish and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Overall, an enjoyable and easy to read domestic thriller. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from HQ Digital via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion. Thank you also to Pigeonhole for giving me the opportunity to read this book!
