  • kept me on the edge of my seat

    Sara lives in New York City with her rescue dog, Poppy. One day while walking Poppy in Central Park, Sara meets Bradley, who is both handsome and clearly wealthy. Bradley quickly becomes attached to Sara, but she has insecurities about their entire relationship. She wants to avoid getting her heart broken. She tells her identical twin sister, Cecilia, who is a popular Instagram influencer living in Thailand, all about him. Cecilia is outgoing and beautiful, not quiet and shy like Sara. So when Cecilia travels to New York to meet Bradley, things take a turn for the worse. Cecilia goes missing and Sara finds herself being interviewed about her disappearance. This was a great book that kept me on the edge of my seat. It was part romance and part thriller, which I loved! The ending was both shocking and clever. If you are looking for a quick and easy read full of suspense, pick this one up. I will be looking forward to reading more books by Arianne Richmonde. Many thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for my ARC in exchange for my honest review.

  • A well-written psychological thriller with a dash

    Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review! The Guilty Sister by Arianne Richmonde is a well-written psychological thriller with a dash of romance. The story revolves around Sara, a young woman living in New York City who enjoys a seemingly ideal life. She enjoys walking around Central Park with Poppy, her rescue dog. She has close friends like an aunt who raised her, her neighbor, and her neighbor's handsome son Jack. She's also recently started dating Bradley, a rich man with a job in finance. Everything seems to be going well. Then, her twin sister Cece rolls back into her life. Whereas Sara is shy and rather introverted, Cece is a fun and flirtatious Instagram influencer. What will happen when Bradley meets Cece? Will Cece seduce him away from Sarah? And what dangerous secrets are these people hiding? Here is a chilling excerpt from Chapter 1, which is a flash-forward to the end of the book: "The detective handed me a coffee. I was expecting it to be in a Styrofoam cup like you see on TV, but it was paper. I took it and counted to ten trying to calm my nerves, my hands trembling slightly, wondering whether I should keep my mouth shut or come clean. I realized, too late, they now had my fingerprints all over the cup. A ruse to trap me, no doubt, their friendliness masquerading as a kind gesture in offering a drink. Would they sample my saliva from the cup for DNA? Probably. I'd see this box-of-a-room at least a hundred times on cop shows, but as an onlooker, an observer, cozy and safe on my couch, snuggled up to Poppy, sipping a glass of wine. Right now, I was in it. I was the antagonist. Square in the middle of it all. And it was real life, not fiction. I closed my eyes, willing it all to go away. The mess I'd started. I only had myself to blame." Overall, The Guilty Sister is an unputdownable thriller that will have you guessing until the end. I could not put this book down and ended up finishing it in one day. One highlight of this book is the casual wish-fulfillment aspects of the book. Who hasn't dreamed of living in New York City and being swept off your feet by a millionaire bachelor who respects your decisions to keep your relationship slow? And who hasn't thought about what it would be like to have an identical twin who you can switch places with for fun a la The Parent Trap? I thought that this book was both well-written and a fun psychological thriller. If I had to complain about something, I would have to say that I saw the main twist coming pretty early on, which was disappointing, but I did not expect the final twist in the last chapter. If you're intrigued by the excerpt above, or if you're a fan of psychological thrillers, I highly recommend that you check out this book when it comes out in October!

  • A thrilling read

    “You can always trust your family… Can’t you?…” The relationship between sisters is complex. Sometimes loving, sometimes challenging, sometimes beautiful and sometimes, deadly. When Sara has finally built the life that shes craved, so different to her estranged twin sisters hectic life, she feels complete with her wonderful new boyfriend Bradley. But are her fears that her sister might bring her perfect new world crashing down warranted? And if so, what lengths is Sara prepared to go in protecting her relationship. A gripping and sinister tale set in New York City where everyone has something to hide, The Guilty Sister is one read that I absolutely loved! Richmonde does a sensational job of drawing the reader in and holding you captive. This one had me immediately hooked and it is so well written and executed, I just could not put it down. A very entertaining read which I highly recommend for fans of the genre.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • not a page turner

    A digital copy of this book was given to me by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. One Happy Family is the story of Sara and Bradley, who meet in Central Park and have a whirlwind romance. This is told from 2 two timelines "now" and the events that lead up to "now". Sara's twin sister is "missing" and she is being questioned by the police. Two different people close to Sara have warned her that Bradley may not be who he says he is, and the doubts start to take hold. Both Sara and Bradley have secrets that are are not willing to share with each other, but when Bradley proposes, all the second-guessing comes to the surface and Sara just isn't ready to commit. I feel like there was a a lot of description in this story, from Central Park, to living in multiple African countries. I found this to be a little too boring. This had a very slow start and didn't start to take shape (for me) until half way through. The last half I couldn't put down. It wasn't a "page-turner" mystery/thriller type but it was worth it to see how everything came together.

    Thanks for your feedback!
