Fiction. Literature. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:A "haunting debut: suspenseful, atmospheric, and completely riveting" (Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author of All the Missing Girls) about a young woman who returns home to care for her ailing mother and begins to dig deeper into her sister's unsolved murder.
Sixteen years ago, Sylvie's sister, Persephone, never came home. Out late with the boyfriend she was forbidden to see, Persephone was missing for three days before her body was found??and years later, her murder is still unsolved.

In the present day, Sylvie returns home to care for her estranged mother, Annie, as she undergoes treatment for cancer. Prone to unexplained "Dark Days" even before Persephone's death, Annie's once-close bond with Sylvie dissolved in the weeks after their loss, making for an uncomfortable reunion all these years later. Adding to the discomfort, Persephone's former boyfriend is now a nurse at the cancer center where Annie is being treated. Sylvie has always believed Ben was responsible for the murder??but she carries her own guilt about that night, guilt that traps her in the past while the world goes on around her.

As she navigates the complicated relationship with her mother, Sylvie begins to uncover the secrets that fill their house??and what really happened the night Persephone died.

The Winter Sister is a "bewitching" (Kirkus Reviews) portrayal of the complex bond between sisters, between mothers and daughters alike, and "will captivate you from suspenseful start to surprising finish" (Kathleen Barber, author of Are You Sleep

I was looking forward to reading The Winter Sister. I love books about cold cases and this book about a young woman's unsolved murder intrigued me. I love reading thrillers and I found this book to be very easy to read. In fact, I breezed through it on a single evening, with even impressed myself. I'm a fast reader, but in this case and in other cases is it just that the story isn't overly complex so that I pretty much can skim the text quickly and still without any problem get the gist. It's probably a gift that I acquired since my days of studying. LOL

Anyhow, as I stated before isn't it an overly complex story. We have Sylvie the surviving sister, guilt-ridden who travels home to take of her sick mother. Her mother hasn't truly been the same person since Persephone was murdered and their relationship is not what it used to. Sylvie starts to unravel the mystery surrounding her sister's death. There are not many suspects, and the red herrings were pretty easy to spot and the book just doesn't have that many surprises. It's simply a decent thriller. Hence, the rating. If the story had grabbed me more, the character moved me more had I been able to give a higher rating. As it is, it's just an OK thriller, the story kept my interest up all the way to the end and I felt that the ending was if not that surprising at least satisfying.

I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review! ( )

Fast paced thriller read! Sylvie's sister was murdered sixteen years ago and she now has to go back home to take care of her mother who has cancer. Ever since her sister was murdered, her mother and her have had a very strained and distant relationship. She is not sure how she will face the past and knows that memories and guilt she's locked away for the last decade and a half will be forced to surface again. With the case still being an opened but now cold case, Sylvie decides she is going to try and push the detectives a but and see why in her mind the prime suspect was never arrested. She soon comes face to face with that suspect and she is finding herself reliving that night sixteen years ago as she searches for the truth of what happened to not only her sister but her mother as well. I will be reading more novels by Megan - I had a love hate with some of the characters, but that helped to fill the storyline and I loved how she played it all out. ( )
