About this deal

As Madison gets drawn into a mysterious investigation involving missing girls and secret hideaways, she finds herself embroiled in more and more danger. . .

I found a lot to like in this psychological thriller about an ordinary person seeking justice for her murdered sister. Bee gets called to London from New York because her sister Tess has disappeared. Soon she is found dead, and the police judge it suicide in her despair over the birth of a stillborn baby. Yet Bee just knows that her free-spirited sister would not kill herself, and step by step she does her own form of investigation. I did not have high expectation going into this novel. I knew that it was a decent thriller, because a friend of my suggested that I should read it, but I did not expect to be blown away by it... Boy was I wrong.

Table of Contents

I enjoyed following Beatrice as she unravels the sinister events that led to her sister’s death. We learn that their younger brother died of Cystic Fibrosis as a child, which heavily impacted their family, and possibly Tess’ baby. Initially, I really enjoyed this book. It opens up and immediately grasps readers with its unique perspective - the book is narrated by one sister directly to her deceased sister, catching her up on what has been happening since her death. It really gives an interesting frame to the novel and its actions. There is a lot of emotion in this book - and Lupton does a wonderful job of conveying a realistic relationship between these two sisters. Read more: 'Her two little girls need their mummy home': partner of missing mum Nicola Bulley describes family's 'perpetual hell' I Really didn't like Sister missing. I didn't think Girl, missing needed a sequel, and I found Lauren really annoying. The whole way through I was thinking, Come on Jam, dump her! (I did feel slightly mean for this.) but unfortunately he didn't. I thought he should have go together with Shelby, Cause I liked her better. Maybe terror and dread, once experienced, embed themselves into you even when the cause has gone, leaving behind a sleeping horror, which is too easily awakened.”

I loved this book. Another reviewer described it as a "crime fiction novel for people who don't like crime fiction" and I agree with that description. I've read a few crime fiction novels and really enjoyed them (e.g. the Millenium trilogy) but it can be a difficult genre to get right. I always feel overwhelmed when entering the crime section of a bookstore or library, faced with hundreds of books that look and sound the same. However, Sister stood out to me because it has a beautiful cover and not one you would associated with a crime investigation. It's serene as opposed to bold and bloody. I would have assumed it was more of a family drama novel and I believe this novel bridges the gap between the two genres. A search of the area involving police specialist resources, the Coastguard and Bowland Mountain Rescue is continuing. "Bit spooky too!".This remains a missing person inquiry and at this time there is nothing to suggest any third-party involvement in Nicola’s disappearance. Hoping some time together away from everything will help, Lauren’s birth mother takes her and her two sisters on holiday, only for tragedy to strike again when one of Lauren’s sisters disappears, under circumstances very similar to those in which Lauren was taken years before. . . perhaps too similar to be a coincidence.

In a statement, her family said: "We have been overwhelmed by the support from our community and would like to thank everyone for their ongoing efforts to help us find Nicola. A dive team and sniffer dogs were seen on the banks of the River Wyre in Lancashire as the search for the mother-of-two stepped up in its seventh day on Thursday.There are specific roads police are interested in, that we think Laurel may have crossed in those first few days. A week after her Shelby's death she's worrying about doing work. Who's work is there top priority when they nearly died and their sister died? It's two years after the events of Girl, Missing and life is not getting any easier for sixteen-year-old Lauren – exam pressure and a recent family heartbreak have taken their toll.

We ask for anyone who thinks they may have any information that may help the police find Nicola to please come forward and help them with their inquiries." The alarm is raised at 10.15am by a walker who found her Springer Spaniel running loose The dog’s harness and lead were found on a bench, along with her phone, which was still connected to a work conference call Earlier on Tuesday, Lancashire Police had appealed to find a witness who was believed to have been in the area at the time mother-of-two Nicola Bulley, 45, was last seen.

Keep in touch

I rated it 4 because I didn't like some parts due to them being unrealistic or not very interesting, plus I also thought that Jam had a PSP in the first on that he scratched, not a DS so when I read that it quite confused me, but I might be wrong so ignore me if I am. What rating do you give a book that definitely holds your interest and keeps you reading any time you can snatch a chunk of time, however small, yet leaves you disappointed and irritated when it ends? Which is more important - constantly being kept pulled into a story or coming away at the end of the book a satisfied reader??? The six D’Aplièse sisters have each been on their own incredible journey to discover their heritage, but they still have one question left unanswered: who and where is the seventh sister?
