A special thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Louise Jensen delivers a twisty and gripping debut THE SISTER –a girl, and her best friend Charlie. Her haunting last words, “I did something terrible, Grace. I hope you can forgive me.”

Charlie died four months earlier. Is she to blame?

Grace receives a letter in the mail in a pink envelope, which triggered a memory of the letter that Charlie hadn’t wanted her to read, hidden in the memory box. Perhaps the letter will hold some kind of clue. She was her best friend, she should know.

Can you really ever know someone?

Unable to move forward, Grace is determined to fulfill Charlie's wishes, to find the father who abandoned her and to find out what exactly Charlie was referring to when she said she had done something terrible, and was sorry.

She begins digging.

Grace begins trying to find Charlie’s family. Anna claims to be Charlie’s sister. Grace is thrilled.

However, something is not just right.

Anna and her boyfriend, Dan are acting strangely. She also feels like someone is following her and she is in danger. There was nothing she could have done to save Charlie ...or was there?

Betrayal. Blackmail. Misplaced guilt and fear of abandonment. Things she had shared.

Grace racks her brain to think what Charlie might have done.

From then (past) and now (present) the author slowly unravels the pieces of the intriguing puzzle.

The hunted becomes the hunter.

A gripping suspense mystery, the ongoing guilt about Charlie. The letters. Chilling, an intense psychological suspense which will keep you guessing to the end. Cleverly crafted, terrifying and nerve-racking, a buried memory box and two friends.

In addition to the advanced reading copy, I also listened to the audiobook, narrated by Natalie Blass for a riveting performance. Bookouture knows how to crank out winners and killer covers!

Looking forward to more from this new talented author!
