The Good Sister

Book: The Good Sister
Author: Jess Ryder

When her father dies, Josie is devastated to uncover he led a secret life: another house, another family and a half-sister called Valentina.

Both with red hair and icy blue eyes, Josie and Valentina could be mistaken for twins. But the similarities end there...

Josie – Sweet, reserved, jealous, thief.
Valentina – Care-free, confident, dangerous, liar.

They share secrets. They tell lies. And for one sister, dark memories begin to surface... Should the other be scared for her life? -Goodreads

Review: The blurb about book sounds amazing. The concept sounds fun. Sisters born within a few days of each other who don't know the other existed until their father dies? Lots of possibilities. Unfortunately, Josie was too sweet and Valentina was too...not sure the correct term but she had no redeeming qualities (I'm talking zero). It's one thing if there is a sociopath or psychopathic main character who can hide their true intentions, but everyone could see Valentina's craziness a mile away (except for Josie).The 'twist' was kind of obvious but definitely the most interesting part of the story. 

Overall, not my favorite but I think this author is talented (Loved 'The Ex-Wife') so I'll definitely read more from her. 

Grade: 2/5
