After sixteen years apart sisters Jessica and Emily are reunited. With the past now behind them, the warmth they once shared quickly returns and before long Jess has moved into Emily’s comfortable island home. Life couldn’t be better. But when baby Daisy disappears while in Jess’s care, the perfect life Emily has so carefully built starts to fall apart.
Was Emily right to trust her sister after everything that happened before?
I LOVED Little Sister. Man it was twisty brilliance with the odd moment of huh?, an awful lot of WHAT?? and a bit of emotional trauma thrown in there just in case you start to get too comfortable…
Oh we all love a good psychological thriller, but you know there are those that you read all the time that kind of blend into one big bubble then there are those like Little Sister that stay with you, maybe because of one thing maybe because of several. In the case of this particular story for me the characters resonated, made me randomly growly, occasionally murderous then Isabel Ashdown put the finishing touches on it with an evil flourish – fairly sure she was twirling a moustache as she wrote The End.
As I said at the time of finishing it – I want to marry the ending of this book it was so godarn good.
That aside it is also beautifully written, looks at themes of family, sibling rivalry, secrets and lies – and is brilliantly plotted with those lovely hidden depths that give a story that edgy unpredictable feel – you genuinely might be up all night reading this one…
My tip? Start it early in the day. And not when you have anything else to do.
Deliciously dark, looking at a divisive incredibly cutting relationship that exists between two sisters, Little Sister is most definitely one to watch in 2017. Batten down the hatches, the next year in books is going to be a blast, at the moment Trapeze have their eyes firmly on the dynamite.
Fun isn’t it?
