The Better Sister by Alafair Burke

The Better Sister by Alafair Burke

Ahhhhh Sunday! My favourite of the mellow days. Mornings spent exactly like this are pure perfection. πŸ“šβ˜•οΈπŸΆ

Today I also want to chat about the pure delectable fun that is The Better Sister by @alafairb - which I was lucky enough to get my hands on ahead of its upcoming publication date (April 16th y’all - write that down). πŸ“šβ˜•οΈ

This story is one of those delicious slow burn character drama + suspense stories that genuinely has you guessing and second guessing who did what and why they did it. πŸ“šβ˜•οΈ

Chloe has always been the successful sister. Nicky has always been the screw up. But Nicky is the one married to her successful lawyer husband Adam, with a new son, Ethan & seems to be getting it together. 
Fast forward 15 years - Chloe is married to Adam and raising Ethan; Nicky is no longer in the picture. Until Adam is murdered, and Ethan is the prime suspect. Old wounds will need to be set aside for the sisters to come together and confront the truth about what really happened that night. πŸ“šβ˜•οΈ

I’m not saying a word about what happens in this one (spoilers are the WORST) but I am saying that I love the way Alafair writes colourful and vibrant characters. I love that I felt like I knew these women, and I love that every character in this book ended up surprising me in their own ways. I love that Alafair’s old career as a prosecutor makes the courtroom scenes all the more tense and realistic. I love that the women in this book are all ruthless and unbreakable. I love this book. Period. πŸ“šβ˜•οΈ

So keep your eyes peeled friends, this one is coming in hot and it is going to make for PERFECT summer reading. I can’t wait to chat with y’all about it. πŸ“šβ˜•οΈ

Many thanks to @harpercollinsca for sending me the copy - you guys are nailing the killer new releases this year and I love it. πŸ“šβ˜•οΈ

Now. Back to #socksunday + soaking up the mellow vibes. πŸ’œ
