Summary

Sisters is an unsettling story of sibling rivalry by the number one best-selling author of The Girlfriend, Michelle Frances.

Is blood really thicker than water?

Abby and Ellie were never close as children. Now in their 30s, they each harbour deep-rooted resentment for the other - Abby for her sister's looks and her status as their mother's favourite. Ellie meanwhile is envious of Abby's perfect husband and picturesque home, a villa on the sun-soaked Italian island of Elba.

When Abby invites Ellie to stay, both sisters see the break as a chance to relax and put aside their differences. But with their mother Susanna there too, all the simmering tensions of the past quickly rise to the surface. And Ellie suspects that Abby and their mother are keeping a dangerous secret....

But after a shocking act, the sisters have only each other to rely on. Vulnerable and scared, trusting each other will be the biggest risk of all....

Kind of predictable

Really good, and was nice to listen to on the way to work, but i could kind of guessed the ending.
Recommend for an easy listen!

Not for me!

This started of with promise. I felt I was settling down to a good book, but when ‘the incident’ (no spoiler) occurred, the way in which the main character dealt with it was ridiculous. I tried another few chapters, but I couldn’t take it seriously. I will return it.

Loving it!

But the book has stopped working. So can’t finish it. I will refer to audible to looking into it.

Dissatisfied

The story, which was somewhat gripping, ended going nowhere and could have ended 30 chapters earlier.

Drags on and on and on

after a promising start story wise and able to tune out some of the narrator's irritating habits the accents got worse and the story kept dragging. Most of the characters are unlikable and it really could have been over sooner.
