    A definite page-turning mystery!

    In The Liar’s Sister, we follow Heather and Rosie, two estranged sisters who are brought back together to their hometown when their mother falls ill. Heather has always been suspicious of Rosie ever since she accused their friend, Samuel, of assaulting her and he turns up missing the same night Rosie sneaks out of the house and comes home with torn clothes and a terrified demeanor. What did Rosie see (or do) that night? What is she hiding? Heather never reveals her suspicions to her sister. But when they quickly realize that they are not wanted back in their small town, tensions begin to arise and secrets are revealed. This book was definitely twisty! I could not guess the ending, although I tried. I enjoyed the small town setting and the way the two sisters navigated their strained relationship. I found the book to be well written, although a tad on the unrealistic side at times. However, the reveals definitely kept me turning the pages and I enjoyed it overall! Thank you Netgalley for the review copy!

    Loved This One!

    I loved this book! It drew me in right away when we're told from the start that Heather believes her sister, Rosie, had something to do with her good friend Samuel's disappearance. Knowing that right off, you wonder what leads her to believe this and what she will do about it now that she's back in town after caring for their mother. Much to her surprise, Rosie returns in time to say goodbye to their mother and now they are staying together in their childhood home, among a town full of distrustful neighbors. The story is told in alternating points of view between Heather now and Rosie in the past. The past narratives explore how the girls became friends with Samuel and his family, the Murrays, by working on their farm. As they come of age, relationships ebb and flow and ultimately their lives are changed forever with Samuel's disappearance soon after Rosie makes a startling accusation. At first the town is on their side and against Samuel's, but soon everyone chooses sides and their family is harassed just as much as the Murrays. And now ten years later, it's as if nothing as changed and they are unwelcome in their hometown. Heather doesn't let that stop her from digging deep into Samuel's disappearance, stopping at nothing to discover the truth, even if it tears apart her relationship with her sister. The story was quite engaging and I could picture myself right there with Heather and Rosie in their home near the forest. The atmosphere is simultaneously dark and nostalgic, evoking memories of childhoods filled with happiness and heartbreak. The more we discover with Heather, the more twisted the story becomes and you will find yourself shocked right up to the last page. Just when you think you know how it ends, you find you are...dead wrong.

    Brilliant Psychological Thriller With A Great Plot

    Combine a good sprinkling of mystery, secrets, grudges, gossip and jealousy and you end up with Sarah A. Denzil's latest offering - The Liar's Sister. Told in dual timelines between sisters Heather and Rosie, secrets are revealed at an even pace as the story progresses to the present day, with the revealing chapters dipping back ten years near the end to expose what really happened. Neither of the sisters were overly likeable and it seemed that I never got to know who Heather really was. Rosie suffered from addictions to both drugs and alcohol and as a child, was troublesome - she led a very chaotic life. Enjoyable from the very first page, this was an easy read It was a family drama at its heart, with secrets and lies aplenty and a very satisfying way of revealing and exposing them. The Liar's Sister was so well plotted, with each chapter delivering new revelations. The tension built to a point where everything just exploded and an enigma of families, murder, betrayal, abuse and grief were just the tip of the deceptive iceberg that eventually collapsed. The perfect setting of Buckthorpe - a quiet, small, closed-off village - helped to make the whole story seem very believable, seeing what isolation can do to a small community of people and the lengths to which they are prepared to go in order to hide the truth. There were a few reveals in the story that I didn't see coming and they completely blew me away. The final chapter was a rather appropriate end to the book. Once started, The Liar's Sister was a story that demanded to be finished and I was only too happy to oblige. This was such a terribly good, heart-pounding, twisted psychological thriller that I have no hesitation in recommending to fans of this genre. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Fast read

    3.50stars The Liar’s Sister by Sarah A. Denzil is a mystery novel. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synopsis: (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions) Heather and Rosie are back home in the small village of Buckthorpe, after many years away. Their mother is dying, and although Heather was back regularly to care for her, she has a life as an accountant in the city. Rosie has stayed away, a lot of her time spent in rehab. On her death bed, their mother insists that they sell the house immediately and move away. They soon find out that most of the villagers want them gone as well. Memories of their childhood resurface. Heather longs to know what really happened to her first and only love, Samuel Murray, who disappeared 10 years ago, and was never seen again. Rosie, on the other hand, wants to forget Samuel Murray. Heather knows that Rosie is hiding something. A lot happened around that time and Rosie still doesn't want to talk about it. They may be sisters, but trust has become an issue. My Opinions: The story is told from the perspective of both sisters, in two timelines. In this way we learned the about the events that changed their lives. It read very smoothly, and was a very fast read. The book is about lies, and secrets, and love. It is about sisters who grew up best friends, only to have their friendship severed over an event that they never discussed. Only the death of their mother brings them back together to face things head on. I found the family dynamics to be somewhat realistic. Sisters do, indeed, fall out with one another, and it can take something quite large to get them back together. As well, once trust is lost, it is hard to get it back, and tempers will flare. I did not, however, like their mother from the start. I also found the actual event and hostile environment to be a little far-fetched, even for the sake of the story. An entire village turning against a two girls sounds a little unbelievable. As well, although I enjoyed the twists, I think there was one too many. So, although I enjoyed the book, it just lacked something for me. However, this will not prevent me from reading future offerings from this author.
