Blood Sisters by Jane Corry @JaneCorryAuthor #Review #BlogTour #BloodSisters @PenguinUKBooks @hollandsannie

I am delighted to be on the blog tour for Blood Sisters by Jane Corry. Today I will be sharing my review but first of all let's take a look at the description for the book...

 About the book

From the author of the 2016 bestseller MY HUSBAND'S WIFE, comes a spine-tingling psychological suspense about two sisters bound by a deadly secret, for fans of Liane Moriarty and B A Paris.
Two women. Two versions of the truth.
Kitty lives in a care home. She can't speak properly, and she has no memory of the accident that put her here. At least that's the story she's sticking to.
Art teacher Alison looks fine on the surface. But the surface is a lie. When a job in a prison comes up she decides to take it - this is her chance to finally make things right.
But someone is watching Kitty and Alison.
Someone who wants revenge for what happened that sunny morning in May. 
And only another life will do...

My Review
The description for this book had me well and truly intrigued and as soon as I started reading I became even more curious as to what had happened to the girls. With snippets of information slowly revealed I couldn't help but become even more interested and involved in the story. 

Both Kitty and Alison are compelling characters especially as I got to know them but I think it was Kitty who maybe held my interest more to begin with. I guess it was maybe due to the fact that her character is more of a mystery as she has no recollection of the events other than certain feelings every so often. Also because as the reader you get to meet the real Kitty and not someone who's voice is unable to be heard by everyone else.

I couldn't wait to discover the truth and I was kept on my toes all the way through the many twists and turns that Blood Sisters takes. I found that the entire story moved at a pretty good pace with the plot moving along quickly and always throwing in a new revelation or tense moment. I actually enjoyed the alternating chapters from both Kitty and Alison's point of view as it felt natural to hear from both viewpoints. They were two distinct characters so it made the book even more engaging as you get to see the characters develop over the duration of the book. There are lies, mystery, a little suspense and plenty of twists and turns that kept me hooked.

A compelling story that drew me right in!

With thanks to Annie Holland at Penguin Books for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
