    I loved the premise and structure for Bad Sister, alternating timelines always appeal to me and multiple narrators that are done well are fun and Carrington nailed both aspects. This was an extremely fast paced and edge of your seat type of read from an author I’ll definitely be keeping my eye on.This is told from the perspectives of Connie, DI Wade and an unknown narrator from the past. The blend of these three narratives made this read part p...

    This book was such a rollercoaster of emotions for characters. From trusting everything to doubting it all. A fantastic web of lies and secrets that all come together. Thank you to Netgalley and Avon Books for the chance to read and review this book in exchange for an honest review

    1970-01-01 my goodness this book was intense, fast paced and so well written - I absolutely loved it!!  The characters were superb and the whole plot was so cleverly constructed around them that I flew threw the pages and before I knew it I was at the end - it completely took me away and stuck me on a rollercoaster ride I didn't want to stop!! Plenty of twists and turns, lots of suspense and guessing (by me) - I ...

    Having read and loved Saving Sophie, I was thrilled to see that Sam Carrington had written another dark and brooding crime thriller and couldn’t wait to get stuck in. So a cold, stormy Monday afternoon (with no children!) was the perfect excuse to cuddle up with Bad Sister and I hardly moved from the sofa whilst reading it, only venturing into the kitchen to make cups of tea when needed. Athough this book had me in such a state of intense anxie...

    When a new author gives us a debut as brilliant Saving Sophie, you can be forgiven for wondering what else they have to offer. Was that it? Did they pour everything into that first manuscript? Will book two live up to our expectations.Well let me tell you, Sam Carrington is NO one-hit wonder!!!Bad Sister is brilliant!We start with two young siblings stood watching their father die in a house fire. This triggers a chain of events so terrifying tha...

    Bad Sister is the first book that I have read by Sam Carrington. That will be remedied next year in my plan to catch up on books that I have fallen behind on. I can’t work out if is a series but at least one of the characters appeared in the earlier book.In this novel, after a very creepy prologue, there are mainly two narrators. Connie, who has recently started her own business as a psychologist after taking the rap for a bad decision in her p...
