Sitting down with a good book to read is one of my life pleasures. Michelle Adams is a genius writing her first thriller, MY SISTER. I cant wait to read this authors next book. I do advise every reader that loves a good thriller MY SISTER is it. It's definitely the book to read.
Irini's parents gave her away to her Aunt and Uncle and she never knew why, nobody would never tell her the truth. Aunt Jemima never wanted Irinis sister Elle in their lives and Irini never knew the reason why.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance reader copy of this book.
You can find my review on both Goodreads and Amazon. On goodreads.com/karenwhittard and on Amazon under k.e.whittard from publication date.
I found this book rather hard to read. Some of what goes on and the language used is a little unsettling. I'm not one for the c word sorry. It tends to put me off things.
My attention was ...more
I'm not sure how I feel about this one. It's billed as a thriller but not as suspenseful as I hoped. A large part of it reads as a twisted family saga with Irini trying to figure out her past and Elle manipulating everyone. I didn't really care for Irini's character, but I thought Elle was the perfect blend of crazy. The twist near the end is decent, but I didn't like the ending itself.
Michelle Adams writing was great. It was the only redeeming thing about this book for me. The characters, especially Irinis sister, Elle, was detestable. I had a difficult time connecting with the characters and the plot. The premise of the book was good. I liked the idea, but the ...more

My Sister is a novel by Michelle Adams, just published by Headline on April 20th.
Described as a psychological thriller and with a fabulous cast of characters, here is a book that will grab you and pull you right into its pages.
I am somewhat in awe of Michelle Adams that My Sister is her debut psychological thriller. I read My Sister during the past week and was beyond frustrated when I struggled to get the time to hide away and devour each page.

So there is insane and then there is Elle. I'm not sure how in the world Michelle Adams thought of all the twisted things Elle did. This is a story of relationships - with parents, significant others and especially siblings. Each feels valid and believable in this book. I took off .5 stars because the beginning felt a wee bit (only a wee bit) slow and the end seemed rushed in the need to pull it all together. But Adams does brilliantly in weaving everything together. I will definitely ...more
