DESCRIPTION FROM GOODREADS:
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.
I love Diane Chamberlain. She never disappoints and I was so happy to receive an ARC of this book.
Most of the novels I have read by this author have had a developing love story at the center. This one didn't. At least not in the traditional sense. But it did her have talent for weaving a great mystery. Every time I thought I had it figured out, she surprised me.
The main characters are Lisa and Riley. We get to see what Lisa's life has been like all these years and also a good sense of what Riley's life is. Both are very believable and they were written where you can clearly see why they made the decisions that they did.
We also have a few characters that are interesting in their own stories. Riley's brother, the real estate lady, and the long time residents of the camp ground. I love a few odd balls in the mix.
I think that if you are a fan of Chamberlain's The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes you will love The Silent Sister.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. All thoughts and opinions are mine.
