    Here?s another one of those cases where I was being a good little girl, minding my own business and being all mature; not requesting anything else from NetGalley until my ratio stabilizes (go ahead and laugh). But then all my friends were reading it, and if there?s anything you can...

    So I started out loving this book!! I wanted to know what was going on! Who did what and why!? Then over half the damn book I wanted to stab everyone in the book!!!! Then toward the end when more revelations came about, I started liking it again. But I'm leaving it at 3 star...

    My reviews can also be seen at: https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpr... 3.5 Stars The Sister begins in the present. Twenty-five-year old Grace Matthews is digging up an old time capsule that her and her best friend Charlie buried ten years before. She never thought she'd be a...

    Recently, I've been reading a bit more mystery/suspense. 'The Sister' seemed like it would be a great match for me. I love a book that can keep me on the edge of my seat, wondering what is going to happen next and making my heart rate quicken. Grace, the heroine is still reeling fro...

    *Thank you to Netgalley and Bookouture for my ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review* Though there was something of a slow start, I somehow sensed that this was just an interlude in which to catch my breath before the action really started. Grace, Charlie (Charlotte), and D...

    I received a copy of The Sister by Louise Jensen through NetGalley for an honest review. My thanks to Bookouture and to Louise Jensen for the opportunity. All we needed was the boiled rabbit. Grace Matthews and Charlie Fisher were childhood friends who were as thick as thieves. F...

    This one was a little too contrived for my liking. I think the author crammed in too many ideas - multiple deaths, fires, bullying, cheating, stalking and even a psycho for good measure. At some point, it was overkill. Grace has had a hard time coping with the death of her best fri...

    THE SISTER by Louise Jensen is this author?s debut novel, and it is a definite winner?and from my favourite publisher! This is a dark psychological thriller, full of twists and turns and I kept on turning the pages, not willing to miss a thing? wanting to know more. I did not wan...

    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review. Grace has a lot of problems. Many months have passed since the death of her best friend, and she still isn?t back to right. She pops pills and guzzles booze to cope. She is shrewish and naggy with her longtime boyfriend. Whin...

    Grace and Charlie have been best friends since childhood but when Charlie suddenly dies at 24 yrs old Grace's life becomes upended. She can't eat, she doesn't get out of bed, and her relationship with her long time boyfriend Dan becomes strained to the point that neither seems to want ...

    That was the best nail-biting page turner I've read in awhile! I could not put this one down. First of all, well done Louise Jensen. Cannot believe this is a debut novel. Really great storytelling and writing. I could not for one second figure out where the plot was going to take me...

    The Sister is another wonderful psychological thriller from Louise Jensen. The Sister was originally published in 2016 and was Ms. Jensen's first thriller but I did not begin reading her work until her next book. So far she has released four thrillers and I'd read three and enjoyed the...

    "A psychological thriller with a brilliant twist you won't see coming." That's the promise in the title. My initial reaction was, "I'll be the judge of that." The main character, Grace, was well developed. I could sympathize with her up to a point. At times she seemed too needy, too...

    If you are a fan of Lifetime movies, you will really enjoy this. Unfortunately for me, I'm not... Grace and Charlie; childhood friends brought together because they shared something in common-neither had a Father. But something happened in their past, and now Charlie is dead. Soon...

    Before anyone judges me, I did not know that was the full title of the book I bought because I just went by the Goodreads Paperback Edition. If I had, I would have skipped over this book though the summary did interest me. So here's the main problem. It took way too long for some t...

    I know that in life when things go wrong, they tend to multiply and really go wrong. But still I felt that there were just too many things going wrong, too many deaths, too many coincidences and I never really bought into the story. Grace has lost a lot of people - her parents to s...

    I had my eye on The Sister for a while, and what very excited to be approved for a copy on NetGalley! The book took me nearly a month to finish, however that has far less to do with its plot than with the fact that I still struggle a little with ebooks, and I tend to read only short bi...

    This is an excellent debut novel - a pyschological thriller that builds slowly, gradually filling out the details and adding layers to produce a sizzling finale when it all comes together with some major reveals. Grace had a bad start to her early childhood with her father dying and...

    The Sister by Louise Jensen is a fast paced psychological thriller that is well written & the characters well developed. I really enjoyed this novel & had to review it now. Grace Matthews is heartbroken over the death of her best friend Charlie Fisher Grace returns to the sa...

    The Sister is one of those books that, despite being good I also want to slap some sense into some of the characters. Let's start with Grace, she's been in a funk since her best friend Charlie died. And, then she suddenly discovers that Charlie had a sister called Anna. But, at the sam...

    I will begin by saying this certainly does not read like a debut novel. From page one, it reads as though a seasoned author had put this together. Charlie (Charlotte) and Grace became friends when they met in school. They say that opposites attract, and in this case, it was so true....

    4.5?s When Grace was nine years old she started a new school; in a new town and also living with her grandparents. She had a secret but she kept the sadness hidden ? but the teasing and torment of a new student were stopped by Charlie as she stood up for her against the bullies....

    If you are a fan of Lifetime movies, you will really enjoy this. Unfortunately for me, I'm not... Grace and Charlie; childhood friends brought together because they shared something in common-neither had a Father. But something happened in their past, and now Charlie is dead. Soon...

    Before anyone judges me, I did not know that was the full title of the book I bought because I just went by the Goodreads Paperback Edition. If I had, I would have skipped over this book though the summary did interest me. So here's the main problem. It took way too long for some t...

    I know that in life when things go wrong, they tend to multiply and really go wrong. But still I felt that there were just too many things going wrong, too many deaths, too many coincidences and I never really bought into the story. Grace has lost a lot of people - her parents to s...

    I had my eye on The Sister for a while, and what very excited to be approved for a copy on NetGalley! The book took me nearly a month to finish, however that has far less to do with its plot than with the fact that I still struggle a little with ebooks, and I tend to read only short bi...

    This is an excellent debut novel - a pyschological thriller that builds slowly, gradually filling out the details and adding layers to produce a sizzling finale when it all comes together with some major reveals. Grace had a bad start to her early childhood with her father dying and...

    The Sister by Louise Jensen is a fast paced psychological thriller that is well written & the characters well developed. I really enjoyed this novel & had to review it now. Grace Matthews is heartbroken over the death of her best friend Charlie Fisher Grace returns to the sa...

    The Sister is one of those books that, despite being good I also want to slap some sense into some of the characters. Let's start with Grace, she's been in a funk since her best friend Charlie died. And, then she suddenly discovers that Charlie had a sister called Anna. But, at the sam...

    The Sister is a dark and tense psychological thriller. Initially I was so hung up on the book title, needing to know who the sister was, and how she would be connected to the story. I found myself thinking up all sorts of scenarios. However, one thing I quickly learnt while reading ...

    I will begin by saying this certainly does not read like a debut novel. From page one, it reads as though a seasoned author had put this together. Charlie (Charlotte) and Grace became friends when they met in school. They say that opposites attract, and in this case, it was so true....

    4.5?s When Grace was nine years old she started a new school; in a new town and also living with her grandparents. She had a secret but she kept the sadness hidden ? but the teasing and torment of a new student were stopped by Charlie as she stood up for her against the bullies....

    Probably more like 3.5 stars. This is the story of Grace, who lives with long-time boyfriend, Dan. As the book begins, Grace is just beginning to get over the sudden death of her best friend, Charlie. Grace decides to try to find Charlie's dad, as her friend had talked about doing tha...

    I have to say that I am literally gob smacked that this is the authors debut novel. I mean, to be able to write a story that is woven with so many twists and turns has got to be quite an achievement on it?s own, but to be able to get it spot on in your very first novel? Well that is ...

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Think "Single White Female" meets "Fatal Attraction" and you have "The Sister". Although I did enjoy this book, I gave it 3 stars because I felt that there were some plot holes in the story. Also, I felt that the ...

    Since Grace's childhood best friend, Charlie, has died, life has been a struggle for Grace. It's been affecting her relationship with her boyfriend, Dan, and with Charlie's Mum, Lexie. Unable to move on, Grace is determined to fulfill Charlie's wish to find the father who abandoned her...

    *4.5 stars I want to thank Chelsea Humphrey for loving this book because it made me want to request it! And I'm so happy that I did:) It's been awhile that I've read a book in one sitting. I decided to begin it late afternoon, thinking I would just read a few chapters before bed. No...

    I had high hopes for this book--the premise seemed great and I love a good thriller, but, ultimately, I had trouble even finishing it. The book started off good, told in alternating chapters of Now and Then, from the perspective of Grace--a 25 year old living with her boyfriend, Da...

    Recently, I've been reading a bit more mystery/suspense. 'The Sister' seemed like it would be a great match for me. I love a book that can keep me on the edge of my seat, wondering what is going to happen next and making my heart rate quicken. Grace, the heroine is still reeling fro...

    This one was a little too contrived for my liking. I think the author crammed in too many ideas - multiple deaths, fires, bullying, cheating, stalking and even a psycho for good measure. At some point, it was overkill. Grace has had a hard time coping with the death of her best fri...

    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review. Grace has a lot of problems. Many months have passed since the death of her best friend, and she still isn?t back to right. She pops pills and guzzles booze to cope. She is shrewish and naggy with her longtime boyfriend. Whin...

    Grace and Charlie have been best friends since childhood but when Charlie suddenly dies at 24 yrs old Grace's life becomes upended. She can't eat, she doesn't get out of bed, and her relationship with her long time boyfriend Dan becomes strained to the point that neither seems to want ...

    That was the best nail-biting page turner I've read in awhile! I could not put this one down. First of all, well done Louise Jensen. Cannot believe this is a debut novel. Really great storytelling and writing. I could not for one second figure out where the plot was going to take me...

    So I started out loving this book!! I wanted to know what was going on! Who did what and why!? Then over half the damn book I wanted to stab everyone in the book!!!! Then toward the end when more revelations came about, I started liking it again. But I'm leaving it at 3 star...

    Recently, I've been reading a bit more mystery/suspense. 'The Sister' seemed like it would be a great match for me. I love a book that can keep me on the edge of my seat, wondering what is going to happen next and making my heart rate quicken. Grace, the heroine is still reeling fro...

    *Thank you to Netgalley and Bookouture for my ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review* Though there was something of a slow start, I somehow sensed that this was just an interlude in which to catch my breath before the action really started. Grace, Charlie (Charlotte), and D...

    I received a copy of The Sister by Louise Jensen through NetGalley for an honest review. My thanks to Bookouture and to Louise Jensen for the opportunity. All we needed was the boiled rabbit. Grace Matthews and Charlie Fisher were childhood friends who were as thick as thieves. F...

    This one was a little too contrived for my liking. I think the author crammed in too many ideas - multiple deaths, fires, bullying, cheating, stalking and even a psycho for good measure. At some point, it was overkill. Grace has had a hard time coping with the death of her best fri...

    THE SISTER by Louise Jensen is this author?s debut novel, and it is a definite winner?and from my favourite publisher! This is a dark psychological thriller, full of twists and turns and I kept on turning the pages, not willing to miss a thing? wanting to know more. I did not wan...

    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review. Grace has a lot of problems. Many months have passed since the death of her best friend, and she still isn?t back to right. She pops pills and guzzles booze to cope. She is shrewish and naggy with her longtime boyfriend. Whin...

    Grace and Charlie have been best friends since childhood but when Charlie suddenly dies at 24 yrs old Grace's life becomes upended. She can't eat, she doesn't get out of bed, and her relationship with her long time boyfriend Dan becomes strained to the point that neither seems to want ...

    That was the best nail-biting page turner I've read in awhile! I could not put this one down. First of all, well done Louise Jensen. Cannot believe this is a debut novel. Really great storytelling and writing. I could not for one second figure out where the plot was going to take me...

    The Sister is another wonderful psychological thriller from Louise Jensen. The Sister was originally published in 2016 and was Ms. Jensen's first thriller but I did not begin reading her work until her next book. So far she has released four thrillers and I'd read three and enjoyed the...

    "A psychological thriller with a brilliant twist you won't see coming." That's the promise in the title. My initial reaction was, "I'll be the judge of that." The main character, Grace, was well developed. I could sympathize with her up to a point. At times she seemed too needy, too...

    If you are a fan of Lifetime movies, you will really enjoy this. Unfortunately for me, I'm not... Grace and Charlie; childhood friends brought together because they shared something in common-neither had a Father. But something happened in their past, and now Charlie is dead. Soon...

    Before anyone judges me, I did not know that was the full title of the book I bought because I just went by the Goodreads Paperback Edition. If I had, I would have skipped over this book though the summary did interest me. So here's the main problem. It took way too long for some t...

    I know that in life when things go wrong, they tend to multiply and really go wrong. But still I felt that there were just too many things going wrong, too many deaths, too many coincidences and I never really bought into the story. Grace has lost a lot of people - her parents to s...

    I had my eye on The Sister for a while, and what very excited to be approved for a copy on NetGalley! The book took me nearly a month to finish, however that has far less to do with its plot than with the fact that I still struggle a little with ebooks, and I tend to read only short bi...

    This is an excellent debut novel - a pyschological thriller that builds slowly, gradually filling out the details and adding layers to produce a sizzling finale when it all comes together with some major reveals. Grace had a bad start to her early childhood with her father dying and...

    The Sister by Louise Jensen is a fast paced psychological thriller that is well written & the characters well developed. I really enjoyed this novel & had to review it now. Grace Matthews is heartbroken over the death of her best friend Charlie Fisher Grace returns to the sa...

    The Sister is one of those books that, despite being good I also want to slap some sense into some of the characters. Let's start with Grace, she's been in a funk since her best friend Charlie died. And, then she suddenly discovers that Charlie had a sister called Anna. But, at the sam...

    The Sister is a dark and tense psychological thriller. Initially I was so hung up on the book title, needing to know who the sister was, and how she would be connected to the story. I found myself thinking up all sorts of scenarios. However, one thing I quickly learnt while reading ...

    I will begin by saying this certainly does not read like a debut novel. From page one, it reads as though a seasoned author had put this together. Charlie (Charlotte) and Grace became friends when they met in school. They say that opposites attract, and in this case, it was so true....

    4.5?s When Grace was nine years old she started a new school; in a new town and also living with her grandparents. She had a secret but she kept the sadness hidden ? but the teasing and torment of a new student were stopped by Charlie as she stood up for her against the bullies....

    Probably more like 3.5 stars. This is the story of Grace, who lives with long-time boyfriend, Dan. As the book begins, Grace is just beginning to get over the sudden death of her best friend, Charlie. Grace decides to try to find Charlie's dad, as her friend had talked about doing tha...

    I have to say that I am literally gob smacked that this is the authors debut novel. I mean, to be able to write a story that is woven with so many twists and turns has got to be quite an achievement on it?s own, but to be able to get it spot on in your very first novel? Well that is ...

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Think "Single White Female" meets "Fatal Attraction" and you have "The Sister". Although I did enjoy this book, I gave it 3 stars because I felt that there were some plot holes in the story. Also, I felt that the ...

    Since Grace's childhood best friend, Charlie, has died, life has been a struggle for Grace. It's been affecting her relationship with her boyfriend, Dan, and with Charlie's Mum, Lexie. Unable to move on, Grace is determined to fulfill Charlie's wish to find the father who abandoned her...

    *4.5 stars I want to thank Chelsea Humphrey for loving this book because it made me want to request it! And I'm so happy that I did:) It's been awhile that I've read a book in one sitting. I decided to begin it late afternoon, thinking I would just read a few chapters before bed. No...

    I will begin by saying this certainly does not read like a debut novel. From page one, it reads as though a seasoned author had put this together. Charlie (Charlotte) and Grace became friends when they met in school. They say that opposites attract, and in this case, it was so true....

    4.5?s When Grace was nine years old she started a new school; in a new town and also living with her grandparents. She had a secret but she kept the sadness hidden ? but the teasing and torment of a new student were stopped by Charlie as she stood up for her against the bullies....

    Probably more like 3.5 stars. This is the story of Grace, who lives with long-time boyfriend, Dan. As the book begins, Grace is just beginning to get over the sudden death of her best friend, Charlie. Grace decides to try to find Charlie's dad, as her friend had talked about doing tha...

    I have to say that I am literally gob smacked that this is the authors debut novel. I mean, to be able to write a story that is woven with so many twists and turns has got to be quite an achievement on it?s own, but to be able to get it spot on in your very first novel? Well that is ...

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Think "Single White Female" meets "Fatal Attraction" and you have "The Sister". Although I did enjoy this book, I gave it 3 stars because I felt that there were some plot holes in the story. Also, I felt that the ...

    Since Grace's childhood best friend, Charlie, has died, life has been a struggle for Grace. It's been affecting her relationship with her boyfriend, Dan, and with Charlie's Mum, Lexie. Unable to move on, Grace is determined to fulfill Charlie's wish to find the father who abandoned her...

    Here?s another one of those cases where I was being a good little girl, minding my own business and being all mature; not requesting anything else from NetGalley until my ratio stabilizes (go ahead and laugh). But then all my friends were reading it, and if there?s anything you can...

    So I started out loving this book!! I wanted to know what was going on! Who did what and why!? Then over half the damn book I wanted to stab everyone in the book!!!! Then toward the end when more revelations came about, I started liking it again. But I'm leaving it at 3 star...

    Recently, I've been reading a bit more mystery/suspense. 'The Sister' seemed like it would be a great match for me. I love a book that can keep me on the edge of my seat, wondering what is going to happen next and making my heart rate quicken. Grace, the heroine is still reeling fro...

    *Thank you to Netgalley and Bookouture for my ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review* Though there was something of a slow start, I somehow sensed that this was just an interlude in which to catch my breath before the action really started. Grace, Charlie (Charlotte), and D...

    This one was a little too contrived for my liking. I think the author crammed in too many ideas - multiple deaths, fires, bullying, cheating, stalking and even a psycho for good measure. At some point, it was overkill. Grace has had a hard time coping with the death of her best fri...

    THE SISTER by Louise Jensen is this author?s debut novel, and it is a definite winner?and from my favourite publisher! This is a dark psychological thriller, full of twists and turns and I kept on turning the pages, not willing to miss a thing? wanting to know more. I did not wan...

    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review. Grace has a lot of problems. Many months have passed since the death of her best friend, and she still isn?t back to right. She pops pills and guzzles booze to cope. She is shrewish and naggy with her longtime boyfriend. Whin...

    Grace and Charlie have been best friends since childhood but when Charlie suddenly dies at 24 yrs old Grace's life becomes upended. She can't eat, she doesn't get out of bed, and her relationship with her long time boyfriend Dan becomes strained to the point that neither seems to want ...

    That was the best nail-biting page turner I've read in awhile! I could not put this one down. First of all, well done Louise Jensen. Cannot believe this is a debut novel. Really great storytelling and writing. I could not for one second figure out where the plot was going to take me...

    The Sister is another wonderful psychological thriller from Louise Jensen. The Sister was originally published in 2016 and was Ms. Jensen's first thriller but I did not begin reading her work until her next book. So far she has released four thrillers and I'd read three and enjoyed the...

    "A psychological thriller with a brilliant twist you won't see coming." That's the promise in the title. My initial reaction was, "I'll be the judge of that." The main character, Grace, was well developed. I could sympathize with her up to a point. At times she seemed too needy, too...

    If you are a fan of Lifetime movies, you will really enjoy this. Unfortunately for me, I'm not... Grace and Charlie; childhood friends brought together because they shared something in common-neither had a Father. But something happened in their past, and now Charlie is dead. Soon...

    Before anyone judges me, I did not know that was the full title of the book I bought because I just went by the Goodreads Paperback Edition. If I had, I would have skipped over this book though the summary did interest me. So here's the main problem. It took way too long for some t...

    I know that in life when things go wrong, they tend to multiply and really go wrong. But still I felt that there were just too many things going wrong, too many deaths, too many coincidences and I never really bought into the story. Grace has lost a lot of people - her parents to s...
