I have spent much of the day reading and managed to blow through this one. Solid story, a little predictable but the lovely main character with sensory issues made me want to keep reading and cheering her on. And with a librarian and a quirky dude, of course I was a fan. #BookspinBingo #mystery @TheAromaofBooks #Bookspin

An excellent read! I was expecting a thriller but I'd say it was more like a family drama with a twist. I loved Fern. Reading her perspective on situations made me laugh out loud quite a few times. Her observations were on point about the things people do and say and expect of each other. I was rooting for her and Wally the whole time.

Great book! Almost bailed a couple chapters in, but it was a sweet neuro-divergent romance with dark mystery & betrayal.

I enjoyed this book very much. I figured out the ending (or the idea of it) very early in the book. I‘m a therapist and love reading books with characters that aren‘t neurotypical. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I loved Fern's character and seeing representation of Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), a diagnosis not often seen in books, or it gets absorbed into ASD. The story was an emotional rollercoaster but ultimately one about learning who we can trust in our lives as sometimes those we think are protecting us are self-serving, and it takes the perspective of outsiders to tune us in. (This morning's reading buddy pictured)

Hepworth does it again! Dark, quirky, exciting and addictive - this book is a celebration of relationships, especially that of sisterhood in all its glory. The story progresses in multiple PoVs and part of it might seem predictable but then again there's a secret twist thrown at the reader with everything coming together at the end.
The booklover in me particularly loved chapters about Fern's life at the library 😇😇.

On to the next random book !

The Good Sister was a good read. I could see why some people didn‘t like it. It had some moments that were predictable but you still had to keep reading. I enjoyed the build and wondering even knowing what could happen if it would happen. Then you get to the end and it all comes together.

Non-spoiler content warning: This book portrays a mother with a Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

This is gonna be a no-fault DNF for me. This mom is SO much like my mom, and I don't need that. IDK if it goes past the emotional abuse and trauma into physical, but be advised that the author clearly knows their shit when it comes to that kind of trauma.

There‘s almost always an evil twin, right? This book has some major evil twins vibes all throughout.
Rose keeps a journal of all her memories from childhood, while Fern works at a library and avoids any sensory overload situations. The two are twins and more often than not, you will find them together.
A story that shows the struggles of sisterhood and family, love and pain, with some great humor thrown in.

Excellent, twisty plot with just the right amount of psychological tension. The story of twin sisters, Fern & Rose, with a secret from the past. Fern has sensory issues which make her extremely literal, somewhat quirky, and very endearing. Rose‘s side of the story is told through journal entries.

One of the more twisted books I‘ve read recently. I wasn‘t into it to begin with but it really grabbed me near the middle. Solid 6.8/10 pick if you‘re looking for something unsettling and mysterious. Also improved my understanding of sensory processing issues as a side bonus.

I absolutely fell in love with the main character Fern. Also Wally was an amazing character. This book didn't feel like a book, it felt like I was there. You could definitely see what was going on way before the reveal. But I think you were suppose to. I got so furious reading this book because it was so plain to see but the characters couldn't. And a book that can make you feel furious, is a great book. 5/5 stars. Loved!

This was better than I was anticipating! I thought it was such a good idea to have the main protagonist be on the spectrum and have issues with understanding someone‘s true intentions and sometimes her own actions. Is she a danger to herself or others? Or are those around her the real danger? A really good, twisty story! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book is narrated by each of two sisters, one with some disabilities and the other seemingly normal. Their voices are clear, but the story isn‘t too exciting. I did like the chapters written by the sister with disabilities, and it helped me to a better understanding of how people think who are born with something like that. Would she persevere and come out on top?

Overall Rating 4½⭐ | Narration 😕 = Should‘ve had more narrators
A mystery/thriller that sort of unravels slowly and meticulously with some psychological elements at play that make for an overall satisfying experience. I found myself most captivated by this tale of two sisters where everything isn‘t always what it first seems. My only qualm was that it didn‘t have two narrators. If it had, it may have gotten a full five stars from me.

Fern is one of the most interesting main characters I have ever read about. Good job on Hepworth for presenting a MC who is not neurotypical. She does an excellent job portraying both Fern & Rose through a first person perspective & diary entries. We still end up with "She's BSC" as the resolution but the unique perspective of experiencing interactions with someone who has BPD while dealing with social cue limitations is eye-opening. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Most of this book reads like a family story, exploring the dynamics between an autistic woman (though this word is never used), her twin, and their abusive mother. But then little bits show up here and there to make you wonder. And the last third is much more a true thriller. Overall, I really liked this, though I‘m disappointed at the inclusion of the spoon-feeding at the end. Hepworth should trust her readers (and herself) a bit more.

I really enjoyed this book. I love a book about family dynamics especially sisters. Being able to have both main characters (Rose and Fern‘s) perspectives throughout the book made it an interesting tale and also made me question everything I was told as the reader.

Another text message review. ⭐️⭐️ It was all going well, until the last chapter. Unnecessary.

Karisa I'll forever remember the book Bel Canto for that same reason. Sometimes leaving one chapter off is so much better! 😅 13mo

This book! 🤩 I enjoyed this story so much more than The Mother-in-Law. The characters were relatable, and although the “twist” was a gradual reveal rather than a jaw-dropping *gasp* moment, it still took me by surprise and kept me guessing. I‘ll give Sally Hepworth more consideration after reading this book! #Libby #Kindle

I devoured this book in one day! Rose and Fern are twin sisters. Rose is the responsible one and Fern is the quirky one. Both are keeping secrets.

The ending/twist wasn‘t that shocking to me and was pretty predictable but I still really enjoyed the book! I also loved that Fern worked in a library and the reader got a peak into the public library world.

When the book title is The Good Sister - not The Good Sisters, the reader is alerted to look deeply as the story unfolds. If one sister is good, is the other sister bad or better than the other?
Hints along the way may lead you to suspect what the reality is. You will be led to a satisfactory conclusion but yes there are improbable moments and unusual individuals thrown in.
I received and advance copy of this book from NetGalley.

Nothing is what it seems with this book. Just when you think you have figured this out, the author does a 180, which makes this story all the more enjoyable. It does get uncomfortable at times, but just enough so that you need to know what happens next. This is my second novel from Hepworth, and she is definitely somebody I will continue to read.

Hooked_on_books I‘ve read one of hers and really enjoyed it. I‘ll definitely read her again. 1y
