The Half Sister

We rated this book:


One Sunday afternoon, Jess drops in on Kate and Lauren when they are having their usual lunch with their families and their mom. Jess claims she is The Half Sister that no one knew about. Lauren embraces her while Kate sets out to prove she’s lying and their mom is in complete denial, refusing to acknowledge her at all. As Kate investigates, she does discover that Jess isn’t being entirely truthful about who she is, but she discovers that the those closest to her aren’t either. There are quite a few secrets in this family and it looks like one person is going to expose them all.

I thought this book was a mystery, but it was more of a drama with a small amount of mystery thrown in. A murder is casually mentioned about halfway through and the perpetrator hinted at near the end. Most of the story was about the relationship between Lauren and Kate and how they each thought the other had a better life, only to realize it’s not as glamorous as it seemed. If you enjoy family dramas and watching sisters work out their problems to become closer than ever, you will enjoy this book. I don’t recommend it if you are looking for a mystery or a thriller. There were only about three pages in the whole thing that came close to meeting that definition. Overall, not bad but it certainly wasn’t hard to put it down.
