Book Review – The Good Sister by Gillian McAllister #BookReview #BookBlogger #suspense

Also known as No Further Questions

If there has ever been a book in which I want to live, to feel its words as I read, to run down its sentences – it’s this one. I read the book over 3 days because I wanted to savor the experience of it, where 2 sisters were battling it out in the court of law, one was accused of killing the other’s 8 week old daughter by smothering. The premise was so chilling and yet so emotional. Love between the sisters was palpable, it rose from that place in the soul which was ever-binding.

My first book by Gillian McAllister, I was so excited when I got the opportunity to read it. Down the pages, I kept wondering how they found themselves in the place they were in. Every chapter was a day in the court with witnesses and evidences and the truth unfurling. Gilligan’s writing was tight and fast paced. She unfurled the truth, one petal at a time, and I didn’t know if the core would be rotten or emotional.

My reading experience was 3 dimensional where I could see the events around me as the witnesses came forward. A holographic picture soon emerged. I saw the part which was not fitting with the rest. I knew what had happened way before I came to the end, but didn’t know how or why.

The entire reading was an experience that I would remember for a long time, the building up of the suspense knocked me on my feet. With no doubt in my mind, this was a freaking brilliant book!!

I received an ARC from Edelweiss and publisher G. P. Putnam & Sons, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!!

The police say she’s guilty.

She insists she’s innocent.

She’s your sister.

You love her.

You trust her.

But they say she killed the person you care about most . . .
