The Silent Sister, by Shalini Boland

I thoroughly enjoyed this intriguing read, which continued throwing out surprises chapter after chapter. Lizzy has a stalker who’s getting increasingly close and personal. And violent. Even her cat seems to be a victim. But Lizzy is no shrinking violet. She involves the police and even tries to hire a private investigator. The rest of her life is not exactly brilliant either. Someone’s stealing at work, her boyfriend’s a creep (my opinion) and her mother is a tad odd. The stalker seems to have a really well-thought out plan, and is getting more audacious. We see the stalker’s thoughts every now again – luckily this technique is used sparingly, adding to the intrigue without becoming irritating. Lizzy gets to a stage where she suspects everyone – as did I. And just when I thought everything was neatly sewn up….. well let me just say that it definitely wasn’t!

Book blurb:

‘You don’t deserve a sister…’

When Lizzy Beresford discovers a threatening letter addressed to her, the words on the old, tattered paper chill her to the bone. But who sent it? Living in pretty cottage in a quiet country village, Lizzy’s never made any enemies in her life…

Except her sister.

Lizzy hasn’t spoken to Emma in years. Not since the argument which tore their relationship apart. Would her sister really want to cause her harm after all this time?

As Lizzy receives more disturbing messages, she begins to doubt those closest to her – her boyfriend, her best friend, her neighbours.

Because the mystery sender seems to know everything about her. And after a series of malicious incidents, it’s clear they won’t stop until they’ve destroyed her life.

Lizzy knows she must confront her sister. But can she trust her? And will she realise the shocking truth, before it’s too late?
