The Stolen Sisters by Louise Jensen #BookReview #HQ #NetGalley #4.5*

Sisterhood binds them. Trauma defines them. Will secrets tear them apart?

Leah’s perfect marriage isn’t what it seems but the biggest lie of all is that she’s learned to live with what happened all those years ago.

Marie drinks a bit too much to help her forget. And Carly has never forgiven herself for not keeping them safe.
Twenty years ago The Sinclair Sisters were taken. But what came after their return was far worse.

Can a family ever recover, especially when not everyone is telling the truth…?

Well-Planned & Addictive!

A stunning read – touching on things I’ve never really considered before!

The Sinclair Sisters were lifted off the street twenty years ago, but they’re still dealing with the trauma. Leah is married with a child; a perfect marriage from the outside look in but plenty different from the inside looking out. Marie has issues with alcohol, overindulging to help her forget and Carly just can’t forgive herself for not protecting her two younger siblings better. They need to move on, but how can they when not everyone is being honest?

Wow. This is a very different psychological thriller. I love that, from the very beginning, we know that the girls survived their ordeal – at least physically. I don’t tend to read missing children books as I find them just too difficult to digest, but this one is both well-planned and addictive. I can’t begin to imagine the intricacies of the author’s mind to write a novel such as this, keeping the readers hooked from first to last. It has great characters and a gripping story line but I did lose focus once or twice as it wasn’t moving quickly enough for me. Still a novel I would recommend though, and I’m happy to give it 4.5*.

My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
