SISTER DEAR is a sinister adventure into a labyrinth of family secrets and lies
Sinister, simmering, cinematic - and absolutely riveting. The oh-so-talented Hannah Mary McKinnon skillfully and cleverly twists and turns this unstoppable story of envy and obsession - and powers it to a gasp-worthy conclusion. Wow - standing ovation!
SISTER DEAR is as unexpected as it is thought provoking. It's a story about the meaning of family, the corruption of wealth, and the needs inside us that sneak up and take over our lives. The twisty ending was well paved and clever, but also a testament to McKinnon's uncanny insight into family relationships. This is domestic noir that should be at the top of your list
As layered as puff pastry, and just as delightful, SISTER DEAR is an altogether unpredictable and surprising read. What begins as a slow-burn exploration of love, loss and grief shifts about midway through into a dark and twisted tale of secrets and revenge. These are some of the most wicked characters I've read in a long time, where deception is the standard and nothing is as it seems. If you think you know what will happen, guess again, because the final outcome is so profoundly shocking, the twist so unexpected, I didn't see it coming. A wickedly dark and addictive read following themes of good and bad, and asking if good always triumphs
I love it when books convince you of the path, and you're so certain of how it's going to end . . . but I was completely wrong! And that was brilliant! You won't see it coming but it leaves you feeling satisfyingly on edge
