My Sister's Bones - Review and Trailer


Idgie Says:
I will say that though this book had me in it's clutches by mid-point, I found it a little difficult to sink into at first.  There's a large mystery surrounding Kate and events happening around her, but the chapters keep flipping between the Middle East, her early childhood and an interrogation room at the police station - all giving tiny glimpses of why she's a personal wreck with strong leanings toward PTSD, but none latching you into what exactly is the issue. 

It starts to clarify about 1/3 of the way into the book - and then POW.

The book takes a total 180 turn and brings out a scenario you would not have imagined.  It turns into a train without brakes from there and keeps you on high alert until the very last page.  

I really enjoyed and was shocked by the second half of  the book, but did not enjoy how much the first half dragged out for me.  Again, a review is just a personal opinion.

Kate Rafter is a high-flying war reporter. She's the strong one. The one who escaped their father. Her younger sister Sally didn't. Instead, she drinks.

But when their mother dies, Kate is forced to return home. And on her first night she is woken by a terrifying scream.

At first Kate tells herself it's just a nightmare. But then she hears it again. And this time she knows she's not imagining it.

What secret is lurking in the old family home?

And is she strong enough to uncover it...and make it out alive?
