About the book:

A gripping novel of love, loss and dark family secrets

For a decade, Hannah’s life has been pretty close to perfect – she has a great job, she’s married to Mark, and her child-free existence means she’s free as a bird. The only sadness in her life is a fall-out with her sister Diane, who hasn’t spoken to her in over ten years. But now Diane is on her doorstep – and this time, she’s got her teenage daughter Mia in tow.

When Diane asks if Mia can stay with Hannah and Mark for a few days, Hannah is glad of the chance to get to know her niece. But as the days turn into weeks and Diane doesn’t return, Hannah begins to worry. Why hasn’t her sister been in touch?

Diane is carrying a devastating secret that will destroy Hannah’s carefully constructed life. But how much is she willing to reveal – and when will she pick her moment?

About the author:

Former journalist S.D. Robertson quit his role as a local newspaper editor to pursue a lifelong ambition of becoming a novelist.

An English graduate from the University of Manchester, he’s also worked as a holiday rep, door-to-door salesman, train cleaner, kitchen porter and mobile phone network engineer.

Stuart lives in a village in North West England with his wife and daughter. There’s also his cat, Bernard, who likes to distract him from writing – usually by breaking things.

My thoughts:

There are certain authors who's writing grips me so much that I can't wait for their next book to come out and S.D. Robertson is one of them. I was first introduced to Robertson's work with his novel If Ever I fall (read my review here) and I fell in love with his writing. My Sister's Lies was no exception

It follows the relationship between two sisters who had become estranged from one another. One day their lives are brought back together, but that is when a world of secrets starts to unfold. 

Robertson is a master of creating suspense and mystery in his writing. It is so easy to get caught up in this story, you never want to put it down. You're given little clues throughout the story but they are so subtle that you don't realise until the secrets are unveiled that Robertson had given them to you. Robertson has an incredible talent for creating diverse and authentic characters which aid to make the story more intense and heart-felt as they are relatable. 

My Sister'e Lies is a dark story at times, full of heartache, focusing on the dynamic of family relationships. 

I would give My Sister's Lies;
