Description :

From Sandie Jones, the New York Times bestselling author of the Hello Sunshine Book Club pick The Other Woman, comes The Half Sister; a compelling new domestic suspense novel about a family who is forever changed when a stranger arrives at their door.

Meet the half sister, and unravel the ties that blind us.


Sisters Kate and Lauren meet for Sunday lunch every week without fail, especially after the loss of their father.


But a knock at the door is about to change everything. A young woman by the name of Jess holds a note with the results of a DNA test, claiming to be their half sister.


As the fallout starts, it’s clear that they are all hiding secrets, and perhaps this family isn’t as perfect as it appears.

My Review :

Sandie Jones does it again, ladies and gentlemen.

I fell in love with her writing during The Other Woman, and The Half Sister did not disappoint at all.

Kate, Lauren, Rose, and eventually Jess weave such a web of mystery that I was instantly trapped. I stayed up half the night to finish, and let me tell you…I was dead wrong in my assumptions.

Jess shows up at a family dinner, but only after her DNA matched that of the Lauren, and apparently linked them as half sisters.

After that, everything comes unglued. And I mean everything that I thought I knew about this family turned upside down and then right side up again. In the end – we’ve got a cold case murder mystery, along with an abandoned child.

The twist at the end was one I never saw coming. If you like family dramas – I think you’ll love this book.
