I’m thrilled to be on the blog tour today for Blood Sisters, written by Jane Corry and published by Penguin Books. Many thanks also to Annie Hollands from Penguin Random House UK for arranging the blog tour.
Three little girls set off to school one sunny May morning.
Within an hour, one of them is dead.
Fifteen years later, Alison and Kitty are living separate lives. Kitty lives in a care home. She can’t speak, and she has no memory of the accident that put her here, or her life before it.
Art teacher Alison looks fine on the surface. But the surface is a lie. When a job in a prison comes up she decides to take it – this is her chance to finally make things right.
But someone is watching Kitty and Alison.
Someone who wants revenge for what happened that day.
And only another life will do…

MY REVIEW: I would like to thank Jane Corry, Annie Hollands, Penguin Books and Netgalley for allowing me the opportunity to read an ARC of Blood Sisters prior to taking part and being a stop on the blog tour. I can confirm that I chose to read this ARC and all opinions in this review are my own and are completely unbiased.
As reliable as Big Ben striking on the hour every hour, Jane Corry is just as reliable when it comes to writing great devouring reads to sit down with and gasp at continuously!
Blood Sisters is an absolute joyous thrill ride that is both chilling and captivating. The complexity of the story constantly led me on wild goose chases. Just when I thought I had it all worked out, a great big spanner in the works shot me down in flames making all my detective work look amateur.
Told from the perspectives of sisters Alison and Kitty, alternating chapters captures a story that reaches in and plucks at your heart strings. From the sisters stories, the reader finds that due to horrific circumstances early on in their childhood, two very different lives full of betrayal, deceit and jealousy have been created, and we learn that family relationships can certainly lead a path from one extreme to the next, full of obstacles fighting in every corner.
With more than enough grit to leave the hairs on my arms and neck standing up, and a great flow of tension with believable characters, I say go and buy Blood Sisters, sit down, buckle up tight and enjoy a great psychological thrill ride.
