About the book:

My sister is missing. And the police think I’m to blame.

We haven’t always seen eye to eye, but I do love my sister Cece. She’s confident and free-spirited in a way I never am. And while she’s living her life to the full and posting it all over social media, I’m having early nights in my tiny New York apartment.

I didn’t mean to keep her a secret from my boyfriend, Bradley. But when he found out about her and I caught him scrolling through her pictures online, I knew I had to act before she ruined my life once again.

When the police come knocking at my door, I instantly regret wishing Cece would leave my life for good.

I didn’t want her to vanish forever, did I?

If you enjoy gripping psychological thrillers like The Girl on the TrainGone Girl and The Wife Between Us, you will love this totally addictive novel from a USA Today bestselling author.

The Guilty Sister by Arianne Richmonde is a psychological thriller. The story within this one is told by changing the point of view between the characters, mostly that of Sara and Bradley but there are also a couple of smaller viewpoints. It’s also one that starts at a point in time and then backtracks to an earlier timeline.

Sara has a twin sister, Cece, that instead of being like most twins Sara feels the girls are complete opposites. Mirror images of one another in looks the sisters couldn’t be further apart in personality with Cece being a social media star and Sara an introvert perfectly content in solitude. When Sara meets Bradley she can’t help but want to keep him to herself and to keep Cece from getting between them.

The Guilty Sister by Arianne Richmonde was an entertaining thriller that did have it’s share of twists and turns along the way. The characters were the type that weren’t necessarily likable but compelling in the sense of garnering suspicious and interest in their situation. This one had the original title of One Happy Family but then changed to The Guilty Sister but honestly I’m not a huge fan of that one either but it was a step past the first which made no sense. Regardless it’s a good read inside despite it’s identity crisis.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
