Reviews Blood Sisters

  • Miriam Smith
    "Blood Sisters" written by the talented and respected author Jane Corry is an engaging psychological and chilling thriller that keeps you guessing and flipping the pages till the very end!The story does start a little slow in the very beginning, but that can be forgiven as it soon picks up the pace with simmering intrigue that certainly builds in tension towards the end, with a twist that I could not have predicted. Three girls, one good, one bad...
  • Kaceey - Traveling Sister
    4*That unexplainable, special bond between sisters that no one or nothing can break! But what if it was never there to begin with?Alison lives in London. Not so much living really but merely existing as she’s always looking over her shoulder, waiting for the past to catch up to her. Her guilt is all-consuming. Is it survivor’s guilt? Or something else entirely?Kitty is living in a group home with full 24 hour care. Bound to a wheelchair, and ...
  • Berit☀️✨Traveling Sister✨
    This was a very well done and unique psychological thriller...An accident over 10 years ago one sister has carried the guilt for it, the other sister has suffered the physical consequences of it.... really don't want to say too much about this, but I thought the author did a really good job of portraying all the characters, and I think a lot of research took place to really get the character of Kitty right..... and even though Kitty had a brain i...
  • Norma * Traveling Sister
    4 stars!BLOOD SISTERS by JANE CORRY is a gripping, surprising, complex, and a suspenseful psychological thriller novel that had me totally engaged, entertained, and interested throughout the whole book.The book starts out with a few situations that seem a little too coincidental and had me questioning where this story was going but as I continued to read and things became a little more clear it was absolutely unputdownable.  This turned out to b...

    Addictive and Immensely ThrillingBlood Sisters was an incredible psychological thriller. I’m not surprised though; whenever a book has a plot summary involving a secret of some kind, I’m ALL IN.Alison is an art teacher and her medium of choice is stained glass. She holds classes at the college near her house. After one of her art classes, she sees an advert for a job opening as “art director” at a men’s prison. After considering the off...

    I really enjoyed reading Blood Sister by Jane Corry, a story of sibling rivalry and half truths. This book kept me hooked and I did not want to put it down. A psychological thriller that kept me guessing until the end. I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for my e-copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • Jennifer ~ TarHeelReader & Traveling Sister
    3.75 entertaining and original stars to Blood Sisters! ⭐ ⭐ ⭐.75Blood Sisters was an engaging story of sibling rivalry and all that it entails! I found the alternating storylines between each of the sisters to be intriguing from the start. One sister is starting work in a prison, while the other is convalescing after some type of serious injury. As I read more, I learned that were was a horrific accident- but who was at fault? While a couple...
  • Brenda - Traveling Sister
    I read Blood Sisters with seven of my Traveling Sisters and we were split into two different coulees. Overall we all enjoyed this story and started off curious and intrigued. In the end, some of us were left lost in the dense, green and weedy lush coulee and some of us along ended up lost in the shallow dry coulee looking for water. Blood Sisters is a suspenseful light yet dark at times domestic thriller that explores a deadly secret shared by tw...

    3.5 Stars* (rounded up)Alison always wanted to be close to her little sister Kitty growing up. She yearned for it in fact. Kitty however wanted nothing to do with her older sister. Kitty had her best friend Vanessa - and she was enough.

  • Lindsay - Traveling Sister
    2.5 stars. This book didn't work for me. I liked the idea of the story, but the execution fell flat. Most of the story seemed unrealistic and implausible to me. The characters, plot and mystery all felt quite primary and lacking and I found myself rolling my eyes throughout the entire novel.I read this with the Traveling Sisters and they all loved it a lot more than I did (I hate being the outlier!). I strongly suggest checking out Brenda and Nor...
  • Karen
    4.5*I enjoyed Jane Corry’s previous book, My Husband’s Wife, but really feel that the bar has been raised with this latest release.Told between two timelines, 2001 and from 2016 onwards, this is the story of Alison and Kitty, half-sisters but so very different in personality that they hardly seemed related at all. “Maybe it would be different if my sister was…..well, more sisterly. But instead, Kitty was constantly scratchy or downright h...

    3.5 Stars. An interesting mix of psychological mystery and family drama.Alison is an art teacher, she lives alone in London and suffers from psychological problems resulting from a terrible accident that occurred when she was in high school. Although close to her mother, she's otherwise pretty isolated and unable to trust others. When pressed by financial difficulties, she applies for a job as an art instructor at a minimum security "open" prison...
  • Sheryl
    This is the first novel I've read by this author and it won't be the last. Ms. Corry had me hooked from the very beginning, Alison who is on the edge of being neurotic by running from something that has happened from her past, she's constantly changing homes and never lets anyone get to close to her. Her only acquaintances are the students who take her art classes at the local college. She is barely able to make her rent while just teaching the o...
  • Petra
    I won this book through a GR Giveaway in exchange for an honest review. Last week: "I'm half way through and there is no hint of "thriller" yet. Not one clue of one. Easy to read but boring so far."Finished and my opinion has not changed from the comment above. Dull. Boring. No thrills whatsoever. Just a bunch of adults with very juvenile insecurities ("she doesn't love me the most", for example) going out of their way to "revenge' their imagined...

    Real sisters are more important than blood sisters, aren't they??? 3 people : 3 girls growing up to 2 women with an accident in their midst ; misstep or murder?? Why was a kid with learner's license allowed to drive a car?? Where are kids' mothers?? What really happened on that day?? The answers to all these questions is hidden in the pages of this book. This is the basic plot line told in alternate voices of two sisters, Allison and Kitty, in tw...

  • Tammy
    Well, if you like your thrillers neatly tied up with a bow this one is for you. I gave it four stars because the intention was successfully executed but I really need to change genres for a bit.
  • Amy
    Blood Sisters is Corry’s second novel and although I’ve had her debut on my TBR for awhile, I’ve never quite managed to squeeze it in. Now I’m kicking myself because I liked this one so much that I’m quite sure that I’ll end up loving her other book as well!This is told via two viewpoints, sisters Kitty and Alison, it starts in 2016 then goes back to 2001 when they were children before some sort of accident that isn’t clearly outlin...

    "Fear. Flu. Call it what you will. But something scary is seeping through my bones. Someone is after me."I'm really getting into the thriller genre over the past few years, and this one was a great one!It begins with two perspectives - that of Alison and Kitty. For Part One we are unaware of how the two women are connected. We are aware that there was an accident in Alison's past involving her sister, but other than that everything is left unclea...

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to the author, Jane Corry, and the publisher, Penguin, for this opportunity.This is the split-perspective story of two sisters. Since childhood they have shared nothing but the same intense dislike for each other. And as adults they share even less than that, when a tragic accident causes their paths to diverge in two very different and unforeseen directions. This accident...

    4.25 stars Thanks to Jane Corry, First to Read and Penguin for a chance to read this book for an unbiased review. This is my second Corry novel, but will not be my last. I enjoy her talented writing style, with all it's twists and turns. Her character development is honed to perfection. She is able to take a seemingly normal story line and subtly work it into a story greater than itself. Alison and Kitty are sisters - same mother, different fathe...

    I’m unsure how to rate Blood Sisters by Jane Corry. I didn’t care for it much. Also, a bit too long. But maybe that’s because i was bored. I like my books a bit darker. I guess I was expecting more to the “whys”. I’d give 3 Stars. So what’s it about? Three school girls set off to school one day and a terrible accident happens. One girl is dead, another left with brain damage and the other with minor injuries and major secrets. It’...
  • Donna
    This is my first book by this author. I thought I would like this one better than I did, but it was just okay for me. It is never a good sign when you have to talk yourself into staying with it. The start was slow. It did pick up in the latter half.I didn't really care for any of the characters. I need to connect with at least one of them to really be pulled into the story and sadly that didn't happen. I wanted to understand them but they felt a ...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing.Three girls set off to school, and one of them dies. Fifteen years later, the other two are still traumatized. One can't even speak. Someone is watching both of them, with an evil plan in mind.A fairly good psychological thriller.
