The Second Sister by Claire Kendal
Published: May 4th, 2017

Goodreads | Amazon

Summary (from Goodreads): The chilling new psychological thriller by Claire Kendal, author of the bestselling novel, THE BOOK OF YOU, which was selected for Richard and Judy in 2015. Perfect for fans of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN and DISCLAIMER.

It is ten years since Ella’s sister Miranda disappeared without trace, leaving her young baby behind. Chilling new evidence links Miranda to the horrifying Jason Thorne, now in prison for murdering several women. Is it possible that Miranda knew him?

At thirty, Miranda’s age when she vanished, Ella looks uncannily like the sister she idolized. What holds Ella together is her love for her sister’s child and her work as a self-defence expert helping victims.

Haunted by the possibility that Thorne took Miranda, and driven by her nephew’s longing to know about his mother, Ella will do whatever it takes to uncover the truth – no matter how dangerous…

Beginning: Somebody said recently that I have eyes like yours. Not just literally. Not just because they are blue. They said that I see like you.

Page 56: Your voice is in my ear. You are too forgiving. Too desperate. Don’t make the same mistakes as me.

Thoughts: Um… that opening is SO good. A friend of mine sent a copy of this to me and rated it a 5 stars so I can’t wait to read this!

What do you think?

  5. This sounds really intriguing! I too love that opening. I like that she still “talks” to her sister, even though she’s gone! I think I would do that too, but hopefully will never know!
