About this ebook

‘A whopping 5 stars from me… had me up to early hours of the morning. So transfixed was I to this story that I heard the birds tweeting outside. The ending had me gasping in awe. Truly a masterpiece.’ Sue and her Books

Two sisters. One secret... A lie that could destroy them both.

When her father dies, Josie is devastated to uncover he led a secret life: another house, another family and a half-sister called Valentina.

Both with red hair and icy blue eyes, Josie and Valentina could be mistaken for twins. But the similarities end there…

Josie – Sweet, reserved, jealous, thief. 
Valentina – Care-free, confident, dangerous, liar. 

They share secrets. They tell lies. And for one sister, dark memories begin to surface… Should the other be scared for her life?

A nail-bitingly tense and unputdownable read that will keep you turning pages into the night. Perfect for fans of Gone GirlThe Girl on the Train and Sister Sister.

I highly recommend giving it a whopping 5 stars.’ Sistas With Books, 5 stars

A nail biting, roller-coaster ride. I absolutely loved it! This book really had me gripped and I could not put it down. There were a few completely unexpected twists which left me absolutely shocked (I really didn't see that coming) and the ending was really jaw-dropping!’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars

‘It was a seriously dark, creepy, twisty thriller. I didn’t guess the major twist at the end and really didn’t expect that at all!!... My first book by this author – definitely won’t be my last! Five Stars!’ Stardust Book Reviews, 5 stars

Oh a whopping 5 * from me… This had me up to early hours of the morning. It really gripped me. The ending had me gasping in awe. Truly a masterpiece.’ Sue and her Books, 5 stars

The Good Sister is a novel which keeps you guessing right from the very beginning, up until the very last sentence… It was powerful, thought-provoking and shocking, and has made its way onto my 2017 favourites!’ The Beauty of Reading, 5 stars

I'm still dizzy from the roller coaster ride!’ Bibliomania

Whoa boy! This novel is a deeply scary and chilling psychological thriller that made my nerves buzz with tension.’ Summer in December, 5 stars

‘This was a truly outstanding story, very cleverly done, I was gripped from start to finish and I literally couldn’t turn the pages fast enough for wanting to see what was going to happen next. There were so many twists and turns within the story that I think I spent majority of the book sitting on the edge of my seat in anticipation… I truly can’t recommend it enough.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars

‘You know how you've been on this massive rollercoaster ride and you get off and your legs are all wobbly and the world is spinning and you need to sit down? Yeah, that…The Good Sister is so incredibly dark and twisty! I found this psychological thriller to be utterly gripping and engrossing. A true and exciting page-turner!’ Novel Deelights, 4 stars

I COULD NOT put it down! Ryder does not simply take something that’s been done before and redo it – she blows the theme out of the water… I’m still in shock and awe, shaking my head in disbelief as I write this because I can’t believe the twists she throws at you.’ Artistic Bent, 5 stars

Josie's father has died ..riding his motorcycle. Was it suicide? Or an accident? Under any other circumstances, she would never have even questioned that it was anything other than an accident. But that was before she learned his secret .... he had another family. Another wife . Another daughter... Valentina. Valentina and she could have been twins. Both were born in the same year .. same month ... just a few days apart. Josie was raised with her parents in a home of some wealth. Josie is quiet, responsible, and she has the perfect boyfriend ..someone she's thinking of marrying. In other words, Josie has led a wonderful life. Valentina was raised in different circumstances. Same father ... but Valentina drinks, smokes, plays around with drugs, has no money and is now living in an abandoned building with others who are no better off. Once they meet and start comparing their lives, Valentina only knows one thing ... she wants Josie's life and she's willing to do whatever it takes to get there. This one hooked me from the very beginning. There are lots of twists and turns that kept me reading long after lights should have been turned off. The chapters bounce from one sister's voice to the other's. There were times I wasn't quite sure who I was hearing, which kept me that much more compelled to keep reading. THE GOOD SISTER is a psychological thriller that the reader won't forget easily. Many thanks to the author / Bookouture / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
