I’ve seen some reviews from my Goodreads friends that gave this book a 3 out of 5 stars. I honestly would give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.

I love Kathy’s books. Her Temperance Brennan series got me started in reading crime fiction and mysteries. (I also love her Virals series). This book was a bit different from her other books. It’s a stand alone but I wouldn’t mind if it became a series too.

In this book we meet a different character, Sunday Night, or┬áSunnie as she’s called by those that know her. As this book starts, Sunnie is on her boat when she gets a visit from Beau, a friend of hers asking her to visit with a woman about her missing granddaughter. One thing leads to another and Sunnie ends up being hired by this woman to try to find her missing granddaughter. Sunnie discovers that the girl was kidnapped by a terrorist group and is determined to save her.

Kathy has a way of writing a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat and not wanting to get out of your chair (or bed) to go do everyday things, like going to work. Haha.

If Kathy decides to make this a series, I’m all for it but I do hope to see more Temperance Brennan novels in the future.

If any of you are looking for a great Summer read I would suggest this one. It comes out in the US on July 11th, 2017.

Thank you to NetGalley, Kathy Reichs, and the publisher for a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

Review: “Two Sisters” by Kerry Wilkinson

Rating: 4/5 stars

This is the first book I’ve read by this author and this book starts off with Megan and Chloe going to a cottage their parents had left them after passing away in a car accident. Megan remembers this place as the village where their brother, Zac, disappeared ten years before. 

Megan and Chloe come to the cottage because they were sent a postcard with the letter ‘Z’ on it. Megan thinks this is something to do with her brother. Odd things begin happening in the village like fights, fires, etc. which makes Megan believe the people of the village know what happened to her brother and they just aren’t saying. 

Megan digs deeper and eventually finds out the truth but not without putting herself and Chloe in danger. 

This book started a bit more slow than I would have liked. I didn’t much care for Megan’s character either but I did like that she was determined to find out the truth about her brother. 

Overall, it was a pretty great book. The plot kept me interested and guessing on what happened or was going to happen. Would recommend if you’re looking for a slow building thriller. 

Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture, and the author, Kerry Wilkinson for a copy of this in exchange for an honest review. 

Two Sisters is out in the US on June 23, 2017.
