The Better Sister

The Better Sister review ´ 5 RsNow than fifteen years later their lives are drastically different and Chloe is married to Adam When he’s murdered by an intruder at the couple’s East Hampton beach house Chloe reluctantly allows her teenaged stepson’s biological mother her estranged sister Nicky back into her life But when the police begin to treat Ethan as a suspect in his father’s death the two sisters are forced to unite and to confront the truth behind family secrets they have tried to bury in the pas. Very intriguing beginning but it somehow lost me a bit along the way Chloe and Nicky are not what you could call close sisters but it d be pretty amazing if they d managed Not only did Chloe end up marrying Nicky s ex husband Adam but she takes care of her son who calls her mom She d always been the responsible sister always had her life together Nicky only managed a short time when her child was very young before she went back to being reckless and lost him in the process Years later the child is now getting closer to a grown man and Adam is dead murdered by an intruder And they suspect his son Ethan is your typical teenager a bit rebellious and secretive But would he kill his own father Nicky rushes to be with her family uniting with her estranged sister to support the child they ve both had a hand in raising Neither of them believe Ethan could possibly have hurt Adam but things aren t looking good This is a decent domestic thriller probably best suited for people who haven t read too many but have an interest Having read them uite often some parts were a bit too messy for me It didn t uite lead up to the synopsis Harper Collins sent me a copy of this book to read and review Thank you This in no way affects my opinion

The Better Sister review ´ 5 From Alafair Burke New York Times bestselling author of the runaway hit The Wife comes another twisty tale of domestic noir When a prominent Manhattan lawyer is murdered two estranged sisters one the dead man’s widow the other his ex must set aside mistrust and old resentments but can they escape their pastThough Chloe was the younger of the two Taylor sisters she always seemed to be in charge She was the honor roll student with big dreams and an even bigger work ethic Nicky was a. 25 stars Starts off strong but turns into a mess The Better Sister is a domestic thriller about a woman good sister who marries her bad seed sister s former husband and raises her sister s son as her own Sounds juicy right It gets even better because 10 years later good sister s husband is murdered and her stepson is a prime suspect Now she must do whatever it takes to prove her son s innocence even if it means reuniting with her crazy sister The Better Sister has so much potential I got sucked in immediately and couldn t wait to see what would happen next But at a certain point it just got boring Then I began to notice weird gaps in time and some plot holes I pushed these issues to the side with the hope that they would be ironed out But unfortunately they were not As I read further the plot began to spiral I felt like Burke was just trying to do too much and it became a rather messy and chaotic read I thought that the ending was going to save it but there was one final twist that just irked me to no end I also wanted to know about the two sisters relationship What plays out does not match the potential of the plot I loved The Wife but perhaps it set me up to have too high of expectations for The Better Sister I received an ARC of this book from Edelweiss and Harper Collins in exchange for an honest review
