  • Great read!

    Wow, I loved this book! It has everything you might want from a thriller and more. More being the beautifully lyrical style, the profound insight into family relationships (especially in this case sisterhood) and the main theme that in my opinion is how people see and percieve us and how we would like to be seen, as opposed to as how we really are. Those beautiful, intense characters will stay with you for a long time. Thank you Susie Lynes for another great one! Thank you to netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an arc in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • You will "feel" all the emotions!

    A solid psychological thriller with so many twists. Well written and compulsively readable. It has all the elements that will keep you guessing - plenty of secrets and small town types who keep to themselves. You will feel all the emotions throughout this one! Many thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for this ARC!

  • A brilliant and flawless tale

    For Susie Lynes latest offering, she has once again reduced me to a gushing fangirl with yet another outstanding read. I don’t know how she does it, but each book just outdoes the last. I am always in awe of her work and I know for certain that this won’t be the last time I say this, but for now, Her Sister’s Secret is my new favourite read of hers. Set in Scotland, Her Sister’s Secret is a beautifully written, poignant and powerful story of sisterhood, family relationships and how nothing is what it is perceived to be. That’s all I want to say on the plot as the blurb does its job of giving you just a taste and it is best read just going in with what has been provided. I also do have to say that it does deal with domestic and physical abuse, which may be a trigger for some. What I love the most about Susie Lynes books is how she makes you feel you are part of the story, which is why they always hit me so hard emotionally and this one is no different You also go through what the characters go through and I think for an author to make you feel that way and to have you so consumed by them, even long after reading their stories, is a pretty special and rare gift. As well as always delivering top notch characters, it wouldn’t be a Susie Lynes book if there weren’t some twists thrown in which she incorporates into this story here so spectacularly. I was actually gasping for breath and the pain in my hands was heighten by gripping my Kindle so hard. I did not see them coming and they knocked me for six! So good! Her Sister’s Secret is an absolute must read for everyone and it will come as no surprise that it will be another Susie Lynes book to feature in my best books for 2021.

  • Really Good plot and twists

    4.5 stars Her Sister's Secret by S.E. Lynes is a psychological thriller. My Synopsis:   (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions) Annie and Isla were close growing up in Scotland, and when Annie got pregnant at 15, Isla was right there with her, even though she was only 10.  Callum had two mothers for the first 10 years of his life. Then Annie met Dom, and was swept off her feet.  She and her son moved to Dorset  where Dom had built a studio for her.  Now she had her own space to paint.  She was no longer under her parents thumb.   Dom had thought of everything.  However, Annie was suddenly also running Dom's cottage rental business, cooking his meals, entertaining all his friends, and barely has time to breathe.  But no matter what Dom does to her, she keeps up a brave front.  She keeps her rather miserable existence from her sister, who would be so disappointed. Isla, back in London, misses her sister, but knows she is happy with her new life.  But when Cal calls her in the middle of the night saying that both his mother and Dom are dead, Isla rushes to his side.  She soon realizes that Annie was keeping some major secrets from her, and nothing was as it seemed. Isla is determined to find out the truth of Annie's life, and protect Cal from harm....but he doesn't seem to want help. My Opinions:    This was an amazing book, which is really no surprise, because Susie Lynes is a wonderful author, whose strong suit seems to be in her characters, who are are deep and relatable. I got hooked right from the start, as it is a really compelling and suspenseful read.  It did, however, drag once is a while, but I can't actually think of a specific instance, so....maybe it was me.  On the other hand, it could be during Isla's recollections of earlier times that got a little boring. The book alternated between Isla and Annie, past and present, and it read very smoothly. It is about sisters, family,  and secrets.  It is also about abuse,  grief and guilt. There  are a couple of plot twists, including  a major twist at the end, and I actually considered it (and dismissed it), early on in the book.  So it was a wonderful surprise when it came to be. I would highly recommend this book, as well as anything else that this author writes.

  • Good Twisty Thriller

    I picked this book based on the cover (I'm fickle) and the blurb as I had never come across this author before, I felt quite a connection to it being Scottish myself. I enjoyed the relationship between the sisters when they were still in Scotland and I think I enjoyed the "present day" narrative more than the past but understand that it had to be there to set the scene. I had quite a few guesses of what was going and even an inkling of what in fact turned out to be the twist but I think I was probably grasping at straws just trying to guess. Some of the violence was quite difficult to take for me, having thank God no experience of domestic violence, but it was handled really respectfully to anyone going threw that (there was no gratuitousness just for shock value). I could never understand why Annie found herself stuck in the position she was in but it's easy for someone on the outside looking in to make judgements like that. I really liked the characters of Daisy and Jan also, I could fully picture them and their behaviour and it was rather comforting. The only thing that felt a bit pointless was the epilogue, especially after the impressive twist, I didn't really see the need for it personally. As I said, this is my first book by the author but I doubt it will be my last. *Thanks to NetGalley, Bookouture and S.E. Lynes for the copy of this book. All views are my own.*
