Blog Tour: My Sister by Michelle Adams

Thursday, March 15, 2018
Today's post is a blog tour with the wonderful people over at Headline Publishing for the newly released thriller, My Sister by Michelle Adams. It's categorised on Amazon as: crime, mystery, thriller which I'd definitely agree with. I have the paperback version which was released earlier this month but it's also available as an ebook now for only 99p!

*My Sister by Michelle Adams (382 pages - 8th March) ★★★ (3.5)
Within this book we follow Irini who was taken away from her parents and sister, Elle, when she was very young to live with her aunt. Irini has always wondered why she was sent away, what secrets do her family hold and what's the truth behind her parents decision to keep one daughter with them and send one away. I don't want to give too much of the plot away but I'll mention some of the potentially triggering topics within the book: death, cancer, mental illness, abuse, dysfunctional relationships and disability.

The story does delve into some very deep and dark topics and overall the book has a very sinister, eerie and unnerving feel to it, not just in the actions of the characters but the tone as well. It began a little slow but it definitely picked up and the very dark secrets began to unfold which was compelling and had me turning the pages even though some of the scenes were a little creepy, disturbing or cringing, to be honest.

There are so many unlikeable characters with a few rays of hope in the form of Matt, Joyce and a couple of others but on the whole, it's told in a way in which everyone is a suspect, everyone has secrets they're unwilling to share and everyone has a dark side to an extent. I loved the mystery element as well as the setting at the family home and I liked uncovering the mysteries, even though for me personally, they weren't very shocking as it was a little obvious but the final mystery concerning the main character was shocking and a great twist.

Overall, I did have a couple of issues, for example, the main character seemed a little inconsistent at times and she made unrealistic decisions; in addition the twists and turns weren't fully shocking or unpredictable for me. However, if you like novels concerning dark family secrets, dysfunctional families and deeper and darker topics with an atmospheric, sinister setting then definitely pick up My Sister by Michelle Adams. I found the book on the whole to be very compelling, fairly quick, easy and very eerie!

Will you be reading My Sister by Michelle Adams?
