We Were Sisters by Wendy Clarke | Review

We Were Sisters |Wendy Clarke | Bookouture | Pub: August 8, 2019 | Pages: 320

Unfortunately, this book didn’t live up to my expectations, and I had to give this one 3.5 stars.

The premise of the book was a good one and I was very intrigued by where the story was going to go. However, I felt like the story was slow and dry. It took me quite a while to power through the novel. One of my main issues was that the main characters were unlikeable and one-dimensional. We didn’t get much character development that would usually permit me to gain more sympathy and get really invested in the story.

This could have been a great thriller but the lack of character development, the predictable twists, and lacklustre ending just left me disappointed. This isn’t a horrible book, just kind of an average read.

Even though this wasn’t my favourite book, I’d still be interested in reading other books by Wendy Clarke.

Thank you to Bookouture for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


I turn to where I left my baby in his pushchair and pull up short. With a racing heart, I look around wildly, fear gripping my stomach. I only looked away for a moment. The pushchair and my baby are gone.

Kelly is taking her twin daughters to their first day of school, ushering them into the classroom, her heartbreaking to think they might not need her anymore when she turns around and sees that her newborn baby is gone.

As a desperate search ensues, baby Noah is quickly found – parked in front of a different classroom. But when Kelly reaches forward to comfort him, she finds something tucked beside his blanket. A locket that belonged to her sister Freya. A locket Kelly hasn’t seen since the day Freya died.

And then Kelly’s perfectly-ordered life begins to unravel…

We Were Sisters is a heart-pounding suspense thriller that will grip you until the very last page. Fans of Behind Closed Doors, Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train won’t be able to stop reading this incredible book.
