Her entire life Abby Goodwin has covered for her younger sister Maya. Even after Maya stopped liking her, maybe even hating her. But Abby just couldn’t stop protecting her from broken curfews, failed classes, and the trouble caused by having druggy friends.
When Maya’s latest kinda-boyfriend shows up dead – murdered – Abby doesn’t know how much she can cover for her anymore.
But she’s going to try.
Abby attempts desperately to clear her sister’s name as the police close in on Maya. She figures the best way to prove her innocent is to prove someone else guilty.
Yet it’s harder than she thinks as she learns she can’t trust anyone… not even those she wants to.
The Deadly Sister was fraught with tension immediately. It doesn’t hesitate in jumping into the edgy drama of murder and whodunit questions, which I love.
Sadly, at some point I had accidentally seen a comment on The Deadly Sister that led me to believe I might know a BIG spoiler. Disappointingly, it ended up being true. Oh, I hate spoilers!! So, that knowledge was distracting. I hope you get to read it without ANY hints.
I really liked the way the author instantly had everything under question and had me involved in the story in real-time, like I was there. I was glued. Even with an idea of what was going on (darn it!!) I was entertained and riveted as it played out.
Clues fluttered about, always intriguing, but tainted by my worries of knowing things I shouldn’t. But The Deadly Sister excelled at giving a look at life amidst an out-of-the-ordinary circumstance. It unfolded excellent and intensely with unpredictable twists and turns up to the final page.
Lots of fun, and a nice change of pace!
