The Better Sister by Alafair Burke Review

I've heard so many great things about Alafair Burke's books but had yet to read one before The Better Sister and I am now definitely a fan! I for sure will be reading other books from the author!

I'm slowly starting to enjoy reading court and police procedural novels so I was a bit nervous starting The Better Sister but I found myself unable to stop reading. Secrets, lies, drama and murder made for an interesting read. I found myself constantly theorizing about the "whodunnit". The plot may seem complicated for some readers, but the author mastered the art of intrigue and suspense. 

This is definitely one you want to add to your TBR! Full of twists and turns, it will keep you engrossed until the very end where all the puzzle pieces will be put together perfectly. 

Thank you HarperCollins Canada for my gifted copy. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions. 

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here's a quick synopsis:
Though Chloe was the younger of the two Taylor sisters, she always seemed to be in charge. She was the honor roll student with big dreams and an even bigger work ethic. Nicky was always restless . . . and more than a little reckless—the opposite of her ambitious little sister. She floated from job to job and man to man, and stayed close to home in Cleveland.

For a while, it seemed like both sisters had found happiness. Chloe earned a scholarship to an Ivy League school and moved to New York City, where she landed a coveted publishing job. Nicky married promising young attorney Adam Macintosh, and gave birth to a baby boy they named Ethan. The Taylor sisters became virtual strangers.

Now, more than fifteen years later, their lives are drastically different—and Chloe is married to Adam. When he’s murdered by an intruder at the couple’s East Hampton beach house, Chloe reluctantly allows her teenaged stepson’s biological mother—her estranged sister, Nicky—back into her life. But when the police begin to treat Ethan as a suspect in his father’s death, the two sisters are forced to unite . . . and to confront the truth behind family secrets they have tried to bury in the past.
