 The sisters by Claire Douglas

One lied. One died.

When one sister dies, the other must go to desperate lengths to survive

After a tragic accident, still haunted by her twin sister’s death, Abi is making a fresh start in Bath. But when she meets siblings Bea and Ben, she is quickly drawn into their privileged and unsettling circle.

When one sister lies, she must protect her secret at all costs

As Abi tries to keep up with the demands of her fickle friends, strange things start to happen – precious letters go missing and threatening messages are left in her room. Is this the work of the beautiful and capricious Bea? Or is Abi willing to go to any lengths to get attention?

When the truth outs, will either sister survive?

I wanted to get this book for while why didn’t get it straight away
it is brilliant
it’s a brilliant psychological Thriller
A must read books

I was guessing all the way through I want to know what was going on

Amy’s met Bea she so like lucy
She had was a twin to he called Ben soon they all become friends or do they ?
what are they hiding and why was there something strange about them ?

As soon as Abby moves in with them weird things started to happen in the house I was so caught in the plot I was guessing what’s going to happen next and why ?
there’s plenty of past hidden secrets and agendas in the story that some of the issues are very uncomfortable to read about

The characters had very complex personalities who was telling the truth and who is manipulating Who ?
I didn’t see it did ?

a great story that packed with love; obsession ;desperation and intrigued right up to the end of the story
