Excerpt from The Silent Sister

I hope you’re having a Happy Halloween and picked up lots of scary reads this year!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

This week I am on to a psychological mystery, The Silent Sister, by Diane Chamberlain. I am drawing close to the end, and it has been an interesting and engaging read, although I have guessed all of the twists well ahead of time. A well-written suspense novel that reminds me somewhat of a Mary Higgins Clark.

“I stopped by right after Daddy died,” I said, “but I couldn’t find you.”

“And that surprised you?”

Okay, I thought. The angry Danny today.

Diane Chamberlain, The Silent Sister

In The Silent Sister, Riley MacPherson has spent her entire life believing that her older sister Lisa committed suicide as a teenager. Now, over twenty years later, her father has passed away and she’s in New Bern, North Carolina cleaning out his house when she finds evidence to the contrary. Lisa is alive. Alive and living under a new identity. But why exactly was she on the run all those years ago, and what secrets are being kept now? As Riley works to uncover the truth, her discoveries will put into question everything she thought she knew about her family. Riley must decide what the past means for her present, and what she will do with her newfound reality, in this engrossing New York Times bestselling mystery from Diane Chamberlain.

    This sounds excellent. I’m adding it to my wishlist. This week I am featuring a book I want to read again – Written in Red by Anne Bishop. Happy reading!

  3. I loved this book! In fact, I have never found a book from this author that I didn’t enjoy. Thanks for sharing. Here’s mine: “THE STORY OF ARTHUR TRULUV”

  4. This one sounds really good – I’m glad you’re enjoying it. I’m not into scary due to having nightmare issues throughout my life, but my TT this week is a contemporary paranormal tale that I’m thoroughly enjoying. Happy Halloween:) https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/10/31/teaser-tuesday-31st-october-2017/
