I read the book “The Gift” by Ms Jensen about a year or so ago and loved it. It was a true psych thriller that had me chomping at the bit for more. Hence my desire to read “The Sister.”
This is a fast paced novel with several twists and turns and full of questions the author tries to hide the answers to until the end. In most areas she does this very well. The characters are flawed, human, and relatable. The storyline has moments where it seems a bit contrived but it moves forward quickly and most of it is plausible.
While this novel is quite different from “The Gift,” the author still presents the reader with a psychosocial thriller, albeit not to the degree of her other novel. I found the reason for that: this is the author’s first ever published novel!! That I was unaware of until I hit the end of the novel. Thus, the difference between the two is quite understandable. It does not take away from this novel in any form. It is a well written novel, with its twists and turns. It keeps the reader guessing about many things until the end. It is engaging and one you want to read through quickly to find out the answers and how it all ends.
If you are looking for a true psych thriller straight through that is strong and captivating, read “The Gift.” Otherwise, I would read this novel first then read her second novel. Both are definitely worth the read and will keep you on your toes.
Grace thinks she may be going crazy. Or is she? She feels like someone is constantly watching her and she swears she keeps seeing a red car behind her. In her grief stricken state after the devastating loss of her best friend Charlie, Grace isn’t actually sure about anything. She is extremely innocent thinking and naïve, yet I still found myself caring about her. There is a vulnerability and tenderness surrounding Grace that tugged at my heart strings. She has very childlike qualities, especially in the scenes with her absolutely precious grandparents. Her boyfriend Dan, while so annoying to me, was very protective of Grace and I can see why. She has that air about her, as if she’s always a bit of a damsel in distress, moments away from needing to be saved.
Lexie is Charlie’s train wreck of a mother. My god how I loathed this woman throughout many parts of this book. She’s a cruel drunk, but although there were relatively few times I felt sympathy towards her, I admit I did. Her life hasn’t been easy. Then there is Anna, Charlie’s long lost sister. From the minute she was introduced she gave me a single white female vibe. I mentioned Dan earlier, and I really wanted to like him. I can’t. I don’t wanna say much more about these characters as it would spoil the plot twists, however if you’re anything like me you won’t trust any of them for a second.
The suspense in this book is a slow build up and I was playing guessing games the entire time that Grace’s life was torn apart and ruined. I made many incorrect guess along the way but that thrills me! Quite proud of myself for having things all figured out, then whoops totally wrong. Onto the next theory.
If you like an intense psychological thriller, give this book a try. A few times over the past couple of days while reading this I had to look over my own shoulder to make sure I was not being watched. Always a good sign of a suspenseful thriller if I feel this way!
I enjoy a good British setting for a mystery even if I don't know what some of the words mean and this one did not disappoint. Set in a village, the story unfolds as the protagonist has recently lost her best friend and can't recover from her grief. The book reverts to flashbacks and backstory a lot, revealing only a little at a time, enough to keep you guessing and suspecting the worst from everyone involved. Jensen writes well and has crafted a complex, highly readable mystery with a sympathetic heroine that the reader feels for. I loved the cover, the title (although it mystifies me why she called it this) and raced to the end to find the answers to my questions. There wasn't one gasp-worthy twist at the end but several surprises.
