Title: Her Sister’s Secret
Author: S.E. Lynes
Published: July 13th 2021
Why would you pretend your life is a dream when you’re living a nightmare?
Annie and Dom lead perfect lives in a lovely cottage in a quiet village by the sea, with flowers at the front gate and an apple tree in the garden. Everyone knows them: generous, loving Dom, creative, joyful Annie.
But their neighbours don’t see Annie as she sits waiting for Dom well into the night. They don’t see her smiling through her tears. They don’t know what the perfect couple are hiding.
They just hear the sirens that break the silence of the night and see the flames that rise against the dark sky.
And the morning after, what everyone wants to know is – which one was to blame?
A brilliantly twisty tale of family secrets and the darkness that can lie behind closed doors, The One to Blame will keep you turning the pages till the final devastating revelation. Fans of Lisa Jewell, Gillian Flynn and Louise Candlish will love it.
Two sisters, Isla and Annie, were so close as children but have grown apart in adulthood but still love and care for each other. When Isla receives a dramatic call from her nephew she rushes to help and shocking secrets start to be revealed . . . If you enjoyed stories with plenty of history, oodles of mystery and twists galore all entwined in an unfolding family drama, get yourself a copy of this fantastic book.
This is definitely a story where the less I say, probably the better as it is a read that is an emotional, rollercoaster journey that continues to shock with each new revelation, leaving readers reeling and re-evaluating their assumptions. It is a murder mystery where just when you think you know exactly who did what, when and why is when the author adds another element that throws your ideas into disarray. With characters to empathise with and others to be wary of, this is a fascinating read, a real page turner with a brilliant plot that I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys being kept guessing and surprised!
