#BookReview: The Family Secret by @SherylBrowne @Bookouture


Synopsis: Claire always wished for a sister. But should you be careful what you wish for? 

Claire has spent her whole marriage trying to be the perfect wife and mother – supporting her husband as he goes for promotions and always making sure she’s there to tuck her daughter into bed each night. But little does she know that almost everyone around her has been keeping secrets that could ruin the life she’s worked so hard to create. 

Growing up with warring parents and an often absent father, Claire has always wanted to give her daughter Ella the dream childhood she wishes she’d had. So, when she discovers her husband Luke has been having an affair, Claire is left wondering how she can possibly keep her daughter’s world from crumbling. 

Then Claire receives a text message from someone called Sophie that simply reads – ‘You don’t know me, but I’m your sister’. At first, she’s shocked. And Sophie’s appearance raises questions Claire would like to put to her elderly father before it’s too late. But as she gets to know Sophie – who is so like her in so many ways – she can’t help but be delighted to finally have the sibling she always dreamed of. 

As the two women become inseparable, Claire leans on her new sister more and more, ultimately asking her to move into the family home and trusting her with Ella. But when the unthinkable happens and Claire fears for her daughter’s life, she starts to wonder whether her new sister is exactly who she says she is. 

One thing Claire knows is that telling the perfect lie seems to run in the family. 

If you enjoyed The Girl on the TrainMy Lovely Wife and Lucinda Berry’s The Perfect Child, you’ll love this heart-stopping psychological thriller from bestselling author Sheryl Browne.

My Review: 
Family Secrets is a must read for suspense lovers. I was hooked by the end of the prologue. This one definitely kept me guessing right up until the end. Even with the split POV it felt smooth. I didn’t have a favorite character per se. But I really felt for Bernard through the whole story, and I loved the ending for Claire. There were a few parts that dragged on a tiny bit and could have maybe been cut out, but overall I loved this book.
