This is a great whodunit and don't expect Lelita Baldock to let go of anything until the very end.

Well, actually that's not totally true. You won't know if where she takes you is really where you're supposed to be. Until the very "end". Yes, quotation marks around the "end"...

I really loved The Unsound Sister and as usual Lelita Baldock crafts characters that you just can't help but care about. Often even, albeit uncomfortably, relate to or identify with.

The suspense is thick, characters have hi

Wow, just wow.
Do you remember your first ride on a roller coaster? How at some point in the ride you didn’t want it to end ? Well that’s how I felt reading this piece of fine art. It was a roller coaster of a ride, it started off on a high note and maintained the intensity throughout. Normally, you’d think along the way the whole story will plateau seeing as how it started of strongly but you’d be greatly mistaken to think that. To be honest, The Unsound Sister is easily one of the best books I

The Unsound Sister is a great murder mystery thriller that keeps you gripped from the first page. The author does a good job of keeping up the suspense throughout the story and as a result you find themselves on a roller coaster ride as you try to figure out exactly committed the murder. As for the characters, each are well written in a way that you cannot help but relate to, often no matter what they do and what their flaws are. The ending (no spoilers here) definitely leaves you wanting a sequ ...more

I picked up Lelita Baldock's 'The Unsound Sister' when I was in a bit of a dark space, and the brooding feel of the book feel like it matched exactly my mood at the time. With every word, I felt like I clung on for dear life, eagerly anticipating what would happen next. She weaves a tale of intrigue, which was masterfully crafted to always keep me guessing. The characters have been fleshed out, all with their own idiosyncrasies. All of these details really bring the book alive. Would absolutely ...more

I have a passion for stories, especially those with a dark undercurrent, or a twist to be revealed.

I hope to tell interesting stories that people will find themselves drawn into. Stories that are for entertainment and escape, and hopefully a little thrill of the unexpected.

I truly enjoy the experience of writing, exploring human traits and reactions as well as the darkness that can lurk unexpecte
