My Sister Is Missing By Julia Barrett

Hello Everyone,

Hope you're all keeping well, I've been fighting off a mammoth cold that has been with me for weeks! The end is in sight hopefully so today I'm back for my place on the 'My Sister Is Missing' blog tour today, so let's get into it.

Jess's sister Stephanie loves being a new mum, and is besotted with her baby daughter Natalie. She's tired and a bit anxious, but that's natural, isn't it?

However, one night Stephanie disappears, taking Natalie with her. Jess tries to convince herself that there's a perfectly reasonable explanation but as time goes on and CCTV images appear of a young woman with a baby, jumping in front of a high-speed train, Jess fears the worst. But was it Stephanie? And if not, where has she gone? And what does husband Adam have to hide?

In turmoil Jess goes in search of answers, but she isn't prepared for what she uncovers... or for what happens next.

My Sister is Missing is an intense, twisted, psychological thriller that will make you question what is real, and whether you really can trust those you love.

I have to say, I've read some fantastic books lately and after really enjoying a story I can struggle to get into another piece of writing but that wasn't the case with 'My Sister Is Missing' as, unusually for me, I was hooked by the first page.

This is a tale of love, lies, familial relationships and mental health issues with a fast paced and intriguing narrative that leads us down the rabbit hole of Stephanie's life with a fair few sub plots along the way.

I do really enjoy a story that deals with family secrets as we all have our own and there's something so deliciously enticing about a gradual reveal into the lives and hidden pasts of other people, as 'My Sister Is Missing' unfolds we are introduced to a painful past both sisters would rather forget and I enjoyed this added layer woven into the story.

The ending wasn't the ending I have anticipated which surprised me as I usually have a pretty good nose for what is coming next so that definitely enhanced my experience and overall, I'd say that this is a pretty entertaining read if you're a fan of the genre, which as you probably all know, I most certainly am.
