Publisher's Summary

"I did something terrible, Grace. I hope you can forgive me."

Grace hasn't been the same since the death of her best friend, Charlie. She is haunted by Charlie's words the last time she saw her and, in a bid for answers, opens an old memory box of Charlie's. It soon becomes clear there was a lot she didn't know about her best friend.

When Grace starts a campaign to find Charlie's father, Anna, a girl claiming to be Charlie's sister, steps forward. For Grace, finding Anna is like finding a new family, and soon Anna has made herself very comfortable in Grace and her boyfriend Dan's home.

But something isn't right. Things disappear, Dan's acting strangely, and Grace is sure that someone is following her. Is it all in Grace's mind? Or as she gets closer to discovering the truth about both Charlie and Anna, is Grace in terrible danger?

There was nothing she could have done to save Charlie. Or was there?

    "Impressive debut"
    What made the experience of listening to The Sister the most enjoyable?

    The plot of this book was very good, plenty of twists and turns and it moved at a really good pace to keep you gripped.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Guessing what the secret might be - I think I guessed at everything apart from what it actually was!


    What does Natalie Blass bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She had a pleasant tone that made the book enjoyable to listen too.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I did something terrible Grace...


    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyable and a cracking debut - well worth a listen and easily 5 stars - I love a good psychological thriller!!

    "The Sister, A Gripping Story...."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Sister to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoyed the audio version of The Sister, I think audio and print versions of stories go hand in hand together.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character was Grace as I found it really easy to imagine her in my mind and really felt for her throughout the story.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I enjoyed the parts where Grace thought back about Charlie as she discovered more about her life and secrets. I also loved the scenes with her granddad.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did feel emotional when her cat got killed and she was burring it. And when Grace thought of Charlie and her time with her.


    Any additional comments?

    The Sister is a really emotional and some what chilling story about Grace as she tries to work out what Charlie did before she died. I loved how this book hops from her thought of Charlie in the past and her discoveries of what Charlie did and who Anna really is after she claims to be Charlies sister and poison her cat. Will she find out or will Anna do more damage in her life? Listen to this audio book to find out.

    Story
    "Some of the worst lines I've ever read"

    This book came highly recommended & I really wanted to like it. The first few chapters went well despite some laughable analogies that I wish I could remember & quote but along the lines of "The breakfast table was loaded with preserves & accusations" or something equally laughable along those lines; several of these bizarre analogies are thrown in here & there that made me cringe. Surely the editor should have removed them.
    But it went from bad to worse. The storyline & main character frustrated me but I stuck with it needing to know the main character finally realised the obvious. However the storyline became ridiculous in the final chapters and by the weak ending I couldn't have cared less.
    What could have been a great story just lost its way for me and was hard to take seriously.

    "Boring"
    Would you try another book written by Louise Jensen or narrated by Natalie Blass?

    It was either the narration or the story but could not get into this book


    Would you ever listen to anything by Louise Jensen again?

    Don't think so


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Natalie Blass?

    Don't know?


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    "Weaves a delicate tale"
    Any additional comments?

    This is not your usual psychological thriller. Do not listen to The Sister if you expect murder bloodshed and being given sleepless nights filled with fear; this is a more subtle storyline than that. The tale is as delicate as spider’s silk, and weaves a web that will trap you inside and make it impossible for you to escape until you reach the end. The detailed writing packs every sentence with vivid pictures and atmosphere.
    I listened to it on audiobook, rather than reading it, and it was a great escape from my housework! I really liked the narrator, too and thought she did a brilliant job.
    The story itself starts with a fascinating set-up that hooked me from the start, and I was really keen to find out more. There were times when I found Gracie a little pathetic, but there are reasons why she is the way she is, which are slowly revealed.
    The Sister features a lot of twists and turns that are intricately woven and well-written, and is a good read but just falls short of the promised greatness. Louise Jensen is an author with a lot of potential; one who I will watch eagerly in the future.

    "Enjoyable read. Well narrated."

    This is was a very enjoyable piece of work. I've never read anything by L. Jensen in the past and I'm pretty sure I've never heard N. Blass narrating a book before. So this was a brand new experience for me which left me pleasantly surprised.
    The author uses language incredibly well and builds characters beautifully. I loved the way she set scenes and created tension throughout.

    The narrator is very good at bringing this book out to life and vividly dramatising it without too much acting.

    "On My All-time Favorites List"

    I loved this book. It has all the makings of an all-time favorite. It's about friendship, family, first love, and fate. It made me laugh, cry, and scratch my head trying to figure out the mystery that flows through the whole story. When I give reviews I don't mention specifics so I can't accidentally spoil any of the story. I will just tell you that you want to read this, trust me. So worth it. It's one of the best books I've read in a long time. Perfect summer read.

    "Very impressed"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely. The reviews didn't see to be that good for this book, but Audible recommended it to me, and since Amazon/Audibles tends to have excellent suggestions, I gave it a shot, and I'm very glad I did. I couldn't stop listening as I got towards the end, I did not want to put it down, and I would recommend this to everyone.

    "It was pretty good"

    Normally I don't do full detailed reviews at all and it's really hard to disappoint me. I just felt like the story took forever to start getting good. The last 2 1/2 hours were really good but the first 6 1/2 hours kind of dragged on, I get that there was important information that we all needed to hear but they put a lot of details where I felt it wasn't necessary. All in all it was a good book the twist wasn't as incredible as I thought, I kind of guessed it while it was happening.

    I loved the twists and turns of this novel. I also enjoyed the narration. After my long car trip, I kept looking for more moments to listen because I needed to know what happened next. Can't wait for another book from Jensen!

    "now and then"

    I enjoyed how the story has that past and present element and keeps inching together solving all the queries in the story. I didn't figure out who it was, either. the narrator isn't my favorite for this kind of book. too smooth of a cadence in her voice.

    "BRAVO for this plot and ending"

    The ending reminded me of the book The Husband's Secret. Really a nail biter as you had no idea why Anna was doing this and who she really was. I wanted to reach through my radio and smack Grace for not seeing what was going on.

    I had some ideas, but no where near what the really happened, I love that I was so off and blown away. Usually books are easy to predict, so BRAVO for this plot and ending.

    NO SPOILERS...I don't want to give away anything, it's so intense and awesome. I did actually feel bad for some characters even though I shouldn't, after all circumstances beyond their control made them who they were. Lies and half truths destroy everyone.

    "Not totally sorry 1 credit's gone...."

    It was fine. Not gripping. Not enthralling. Fine. Good. Not sorry I heard it. If you want something to listen to on a drive, it will do. I was convinced based on other reviews of "a twist you won't see coming!" Not true. If, like me, you figure it out 1/4 of the way through, it's still not bad, but don't go on thinking you're going to be floored, because you won't be.
