Me and my Nan have always been a huge fan of Carol Rivers, so I was really looking forward to reading her latest book, A Sister’s Shame.

Set in London’s East End, twins Marie and Vesta have big dreams of a life on the stage. The very talented girls soon land their dream job doing their cabaret act at the club run by the Scoresby brothers. Marie soon catches on to what the Scoresby brothers are up to, but Vesta, blinded by her own ambitions and under the spell of the Scoresby’s right-hand man Tedd
