ABOUT THE BOOK:
The description of this book completely sucked me in and I knew it would be a book that I would really enjoy…
Two sisters, one murder plan. One sister is bad…one sister is good.
Geraldine Monroe is the bad sister. She is a troubled girl who often finds herself in trouble and causing trouble for others. She often makes a scene and embarasses herself and her family. She is reckless, disobedient, and suddenly disappeared after their mother’s death 20 years ago.
Marie Monroe is the good sister. She is polite, obedient, and follows the rules. She does anything to please her father, and lives at the family home with her father and her teenage son.
Their father Martin Monroe can be overbearing and controlling. Afterall he does have a family reputation to uphold. A lot of the things thriving in the city have been because of the Monroe family. Marie is the one who takes it upon herself to follow her father’s orders to please him, thus is the good sister.
This book sucked me in from the beginning. The Other Sister is so full of family drama, family secrets, deception, betrayal and lies. A complete recipe for the perfect disaster. I found initially that both sisters are completely different. You have the trouble maker and you have the innocent obedient one.
The Monroe family is so concerned with keeping up appearances and seeming like the perfect, respectable family. Their father, Martin, is especially dark and twisted. The sisters have a secret though. They have a plan to work together to stop at nothing to destroy the one person responsible for destroying their family and them – their father.
It was easy for me to quickly despise the father Martin. He was twisted and evil, and I had no use for him. Geraldine, the troubled sister, had her issues but I found myself many times feeling sorry for her and her situation. Marie, the good sister, I seemed to like but she is hiding her fair share of secrets as well.
Without giving too much away I enjoyed this book. There are many characters you will learn to love and despise, and lots of twists and turns and shocking secrets revealed that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you read this book.
