Sister Dear by Hannah Mary McKinnon is a Mystery Thriller perfect for any summer night!
“Beauty. Wealth. Success.
She’s got it all.
And it all should’ve been mine.
When Eleanor Hardwicke’s beloved father dies, her world is further shattered by a gut-wrenching secret: the man she’s grieving isn’t really her dad. Eleanor was the product of an affair and her biological father is still out there, living blissfully with the family he chose. With her personal life spiraling, a desperate Eleanor seeks him out, leading her to uncover another branch on her family tree—an infuriatingly enviable half sister.
Perfectly perfect Victoria has everything Eleanor could ever dream of. Loving childhood, luxury home, devoted husband. All of it stolen from Eleanor, who plans to take it back. After all, good sisters are supposed to share. And quiet little Eleanor has been waiting far too long for her turn to play.”
If you are wanting to read a family-drama, mystery thriller, this book could be what you need.
I went into this one thinking it had more of that thriller/suspense vibe, but unfortunately, it came out feeling more of a family/women’s fiction. It was interesting to see her discover the true secrets of her “father.” The family dynamics are definitely far from cozy and was what brought my attention to it.
Like with most books in this genre, the last few chapters was what really drove the whole thing together for me. It did have a few surprising moments and fashioned a slow burn plot.
I ended up giving this one a 3 out of 5 stars. If you enjoy those books that takes you on a journey through domestic secrets, this would be a great one to pick up!
