#BookReview: Sister Dear by Laura McNeill

Reviewer: Samantha

I received a review copy

sister dewarSummary:

All Allie Marshall wants is a fresh start.  But when dark secrets refuse to stay buried, will her chance at a new life be shattered forever?
Convicted of a crime she didn’t commit, Allie watched a decade of her life vanish – time that can never be recovered. Now, out on parole, Allie is determined to clear her name, rebuild her life, and reconnect with the daughter she barely knows.

But Allie’s return home shatters the quaint, coastal community of Brunswick, Georgia. Even her own daughter Caroline, now a teenager, bristles at Allie’s claims of innocence. Refusing defeat, a stronger, smarter Allie launches a battle for the truth, digging deeply into the past even if it threatens her parole status, personal safety, and the already-fragile bond with family.

As her commitment to finding the truth intensifies, what Allie ultimately uncovers is far worse than she imagined. Her own sister has been hiding a dark secret—one that holds the key to Allie’s freedom.


Oh my, my, my. What a twisted tale Laura McNeill weaves for us. I recently read Center of Gravity from Laura which is the same style of book as Sister Dear, and easily gave it five stars. I was eager to read her next offering, and this did not disappoint. I honestly don’t want to say too much in my review because I don’t want to ruin a single moment of your reading experience. There are twists and turns, manipulation, deception and so much more. A fantastic offering from Laura McNeill and I highly suggest you don’t miss either novel!

5 stars
