One of them is telling the truth. The other is a maniac.
Two sisters. One truth.
As far as suspenseful books go this is a pretty good one. Unfortunately I had recently read a book by Joanne Fluke, another mystery writer, and part of her story included one about a long lost sister/daughter who showed back up and the sister had her doubts while mom welcomed her back without question. Since I already knew how that turned out I had a fairly good idea how this book was going to turn out as well because it’s not an original idea.
Aside from that the author did a great job of keeping the pace moving at break neck speed. There was quite a bit at the end I hadn’t seen coming so Fortin did a good job of creating some red herrings. There were also some shocking twists at the end that made me glad I kept reading even after my initial disappointment at having figured out the beginning’s mystery. Overall I’d recommend reading it because regardless of what story lines were used in this book it’s still well written and a good use of time.
