An extra post this week as I did not want to miss out on this tour. The blurb was so appealing and in one of my favourite niches – a good old thriller!

My Sister Is Missing by Julia Barrett

The Blurb

I’m not the wife you think I am

Just weeks after giving birth, new mum Stephanie Henderson and her baby girl disappear.

With husband Adam in despair, and the police investigation stalled, it’s up to her sister Jess to find them. But when Adam starts to behave suspiciously, Jess starts to question what really happened.

Following news of a tragic accident, she suspects the worst and, in turmoil, goes in search of answers. But Jess isn’t prepared for what she uncovers . . . or for what happens next.

This is a twisted psychological thriller that will make you question what is real, and whether you really can trust those you love.

‘This is a gripping suspense novel, and a powerful testament to the bond between sisters. Clear your diary and get the snacks in. Once you open this one, you won’t be putting it down.’ Cass Hunter, author of The After Wife

‘A complex and intriguing novel that paints a dark portrait of dysfunctional family relationships’ Fiona Cummins, author of Rattle

What I Thought

Wow wow wow! I read this book in under 36 hours, I just couldn’t put it down.

I love a thriller and whereas this turns out to be more psychological than anything, it has some fantastic twists and turns along the way which kept me gripped. The story is told from three viewpoints – Jess, whose sister is missing, Steph, the missing sister, who’s thoughts come from the diary entries she makes in the run up to her diaappearance and Adam, her husband, who is acting suspiciously which makes Jess question if he has some involvement in her sister’s disappearance. As well as investigating the disappearance of her sister, Jess is dealing with a recent break up as well as the neglect she suffered as a child which still impacts on her.

As I said before, I just couldn’t put this one down, it kept my interest piqued through out and was superbly written. I will certainly look out for this author again in the future and highly recommend this to all!

Trigger warning – child neglect, suicide, post-parthm psychosis
