Two Sisters is the third Kerry Wilkinson book I have read in the last couple of months. I am pleased to have discovered this author. Though he has been around, he came to my attention when Bookouture signed him to a contract. I must say I really enjoyed all three books. I found this particularly notable because they are of different genres. The first Jessica Daniel book (Locked In, aka The Killer Inside) is a police procedural; standalone Ten Birthdays is contemporary fiction; and this book, als ...more

I was a huge fan of Kerry Wilkinson’s Jessica Daniel series. So I was excited to get Two Sisters as an advance read through netgalley. He has done it again! This stand alone novel tells the story of two young sisters, coming to grips with life after both their parents die in a car crash. They return to their family's summer cottage, where their brother went missing 10 years earlier. Megan had received a postcard on the day of their parents’ funeral. The postcard was of the summer village with a ...more

This was one of those reads where I was all 'what is going on, I have no idea, I can't wait till we get to the end so I know what happens in this crazy mystery!' Which in my mind, is the sign of a good book.

When we're first introduced to the two lead characters, Megan and Chloe, we learn that they're 20 and 16 years old. At first I was fearful that this would read like a YA (which is totally fine, it's just not my genre of choice) but the author did a great job of maintaining a mature story eve

Megan is at school when she gets a visit from the police which she knows can't be good. They have come to inform her that her parents have been involved in an automobile accident and did not survive. Megan is speechless and doesn't know how to take the news having barely known her parents with always being sent off to schools, camps or anything to get her out of the way over the years.

Two Sisters was an excellent psychological thriller because it didn’t follow standard tropes so much and has genuinely quality writing behind it – I put off reading it for a while if I’m honest because Amazon had that stupid “shocking twist” tagline they put on everything and these days that usually leads to a by the numbers girl book which whilst occasionally enjoyable is like eating the same meal over and over again. I should have trusted in Mr Wilkinson however, whose previous novels I’ve lov ...more

Four stars to this latest offering from Kerry Wilkinson... a story full of complicated and intriguing characters. The setting is beautiful... the fictional Whitecliff, a small seaside village and tourist location. During the warm months, the town is divided... the locals and the beach kids. The beach kids are mostly teenagers living off their family money, on a break from school and sent there to keep them out of the way. The locals resent them, but need them. Used to living paycheck to paycheck ...more

I haven’t read anything by Kerry Wilkinson (apart from a short story or two) so I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading Two Sisters. I certainly wasn’t expecting to have it read so quickly, but his writing is so pacy and addictive. Two Sisters follows Megan and Chloe in the aftermath of their parents death in a car crash. Ten years ago their brother went missing and his body was never recovered, so they have experienced a double tragedy in their lives.

I've only read one other book by Kerry, his first Jessica Daniel's book, and really liked it. Somehow I knew I would like another of his books. This is a stand alone, which was nice. After Megan & Chloe's parents are killed in a car crash, the two sisters decide to head to Whitecliff for the summer. The last time they were there was 10 years ago when their older brother Zac went missing. Whitecliff is a strange little place where everything and everyone seems like they're hiding something or ...more

Two Sisters by Kerry Wilkinson published by Bookoutour is a most stunning latest novel of intrigue and beguiling twists from this author. I never think this author can do better, but this one really did draw me in and make me forget whatever was going on around me.

I’m conflicted over how I feel about Two Sisters. I loved The Girl Who Came Back and couldn’t wait to read this but found it lacking in both suspense and characterisation and my interest waned a lot whilst I was reading which was really disappointing.

Ten years ago, Megan’s brother Zac goes missing in the seaside town of Whitecliff. He was never found. Now, after losing their parents in a car accident, Megan and her sister, Chloe, head back to Whitecliff for the first time in a decade. Supposedly to get their parents’ affairs in order but Megan has other plans. She has come for answers. In such a small community, surely someone must know what happened to Zac all those years ago.

Now, Whitecliff. Sounds idyllic, doesn’t it? Well, you’d be wrong

I’m a fan of Wilkinson’s Jessica Daniel series, so when I found out that he was publishing a standalone psychological thriller, I was super intrigued. His series is more straightforward crime fiction/police procedurals so I wondered how this genre would work for him. I’m so pleased to say that I enjoyed this one just as much as his other books!

Megan was ten years old when her older brother Zac disappeared. Ten years later her parents are killed in a car accident. On the day of the funeral, Megan receives a postcard which shows a photo of Whitecliff and the single letter 'Z'. Is this a reference to her long lost brother?

I’m a bit of a sucker for sister mysteries – there are so many interesting dynamics in sibling relationships that they provide the perfect base for an emotionally charged book. And whilst the plot of Wilkinson’s latest novel is based more around the disappearance of Megan and Chloe’s brother Zac ten years ago, the relationship between the sisters was certainly intriguing and drove much of the storyline.

Despite Megan’s prickly and damaged character, I felt that she was well portrayed and I could

This is the first novel I have read by this author and I will certainly be reading more of his books in future after reading Two Sisters.

Two Sisters is one of those dark and brooding reads. It’s like a pan of water on the stove, gently simmering until all of a sudden it’s bubbling away at a rapid speed.

I felt really sorry for Megan and Chloe. They have lost their older brother ten years before and haven’t had the most perfect relationship with their parents who sadly have both just lost their li

Whitecliff, a strange little seaside town where the locals and the summer people antagonize each other during the season. Megan and Chloe Smart return to the family cottage there after the sudden death of their parents. Neither had been back since their older brother, Zac, had disappeared from the place 10 years previously. There were no clues, but the sisters had been told that he had probably drowned. "They lied."

The opening of this book introduces us to Chloe and Megan as they return to their family home in the area of Whitecliff. Following the death of their parents, Megan suggests that the reason for their visit is to sort out their parents affairs. It becomes clear pretty quickly that the real reason is linked to the dissapearance of her brother Zac when Megan was just ten years old.

Absolutely brilliant! Kerry Wilkinson has done it again! Every single one of his books are unputdownable and this one is no different. From the very first page, I was enthralled. Loved Megan and Chloe. Felt for them both, especially Megan. What a voice - loved her character, her feisty nature, her problems and her vulnerability that she hides behind her prickly exterior. Stunning book - would highly recommend this to everyone.

I have been reading quite a few books by Kerry Wilkinson in the last few months and have to say she has become a favourite of mine. Each book is different, even if in the same genre.

I’ve been meaning to pick up a Kerry Wilkinson novel for a while now as I’d heard some very good things about the Jessica Daniels stories, but other books seemed to have jumped in front of them instead. So when I heard he was branching out and writing a psychological thriller style novel, my interest was piqued.


Megan is an unusual character – she’s got a number of issues, starting with her relationship with food. Personally I’d call it unhealthy but then again people might suggest my relationshi

This review was originally published on my blog for the blog tour organized by the publisher. The rating was rounded up from 3.5 stars to 4 stars.

Dysfunctional family doesn't even begin to explain the dynamics of this one. Chloe and Meghan lost their brother ten years ago, their parents died in an accident just a few months ago. But this is only what you get from the papers. The reality of it is darker, more painful, and pretty disastrous.

Η Megan, αν και ξεκινώντας η ιστορία είναι τέρμα αντιπαθητική, έχει ορισμένα πολύ θετικά –ή και ισχυρά- χαρακτηριστικά που δεν μπορείς να προσπεράσεις. Είναι δυναμική και όταν θέτει έναν στόχο κάνει ό,τι περνάει από το χέρι της για να τον επιτύχει. Είναι γενναία, κάτι που την οδηγεί πολλές φορές στο να θέτει ακόμα και την ίδια της τη ζωή σε κίνδυνο, όμως δεν διστάζει να πάρει ρίσκα και να τολμήσει εκεί που άλλοι θα δίσταζαν.
