We rated this book:


Chloe Taylor is an ambitious journalist working for an upscale women’s magazine when she receives a call that alters her life significantly. Her brother-in-law, Adam, has informed Chloe of her sister, Nicky’s, unconscionable acts. Nicky has battled the bottle for years, and now she has endangered her young son, Ethan. Chloe conspires to get Adam and Ethan away from her troubled sister. Fourteen years later, Chloe is now married to Adam, raising teenaged Ethan and running her own magazine. Chloe is successful and accomplished. There are chinks in the armor, as Adam is unhappy with his job and Ethan has problems at school. Chloe has also been facing online backlash for her #ThemToo articles. All of this comes into vivid focus when Chloe finds Adam’s murdered body at their Hamptons home. The police zero in on Chloe and her son Ethan and the “facade” of domestic harmony. Chloe’s life is thrown into a tailspin when Nicky arrives and the police arrest a suspect. What will be the ultimate outcome?

The Better Sister is the new whirlwind thriller from Alafair Burke. The action and drama are constant and heartwrenching. Burke has a flair for creating compelling characters who bring out a plethora of emotions from the reader. A worthy follow-up to last year’s smash The Wife. Do not miss!
