Sally Hepworth, the author of The Mother-In-Law delivers a knock-out of a novel about the lies that bind two sisters in The Good Sister.

There’s only been one time that Rose couldn’t stop me from doing the wrong thing and that was a mistake that will haunt me for the rest of my life.

Fern Castle works in her local library. She has dinner with her twin sister Rose three nights a week. And she avoids crowds, bright lights and loud noises as much as possible. Fern has a carefully structured life and disrupting her routine can be…dangerous.

When Rose discovers that she cannot get pregnant, Fern sees her chance to pay her sister back for everything Rose has done for her. Fern can have a baby for Rose. She just needs to find a father. Simple.

Fern’s mission will shake the foundations of the life she has carefully built for herself and stir up dark secrets from the past, in this quirky, rich and shocking story of what families keep hidden.

This book is about twins Rose and Fern Castle. Twin who are extremely close, but are completely different from each other. They were both raised by their mom who not only has some mental issues, but has a hard time keeping a job while they were growing up as well. One day, their mom overdoses and is forced to live in treatment facility. This leaves Rose to step up and take care of Fern.

This book alternates between Fern’s and Rose’s point of view throughout the book and it definitely end with a twist. I will say that the ending was pretty predictable due to the fact that while reading this, I was catching the clues that pretty much gave up the twist throughout the book. However, this was still a really good read and I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mystery thrillers.

This book will have you questioning, which sister is the “good sister”, but as you read on, you start to see who the villain is in the story. Between the two sisters, I will say I found myself liking Fern the most and loved reading her point of view. There are so many secrets and lies in this book and I believe waiting for the truth to be revealed is the best part about this book. You can probably already guess who the villain is while reading, but you want to know what’s going to happen to the villain in the end.

My Rating:
