Book Review Of “The Winter Sister” By Megan Collins @TouchstoneBooks @AtriaBooks @SimonSchuster @ImMeganCollins
Thank you to Atria and Touchstone Books for both inviting me to read this book, and Atria for gifting me an E-ARC. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 4 out of 5 Stars.
“When they found my sister’s body, the flyers we’d hung around town were still crisp against the telephone poles
Probably one of the most epic first lines in a book that I have ever read. No joke, I was addicted to this story, from that one line. I just knew that I was in for one stupendous ride. For me, the momentum of that first line didn’t fade, it kept pace the entire book, there was not one lagging moment.
I love the baroque prose, the intricately woven history of Sylvie, Persephone, and Annie. I ached with Sylvie regarding the loss of her sister, and the guilt that she had felt regarding the part she played the night her sister went missing. I devoured everything related to Persephone, I wanted to know what caused her to be so angry, what secrets she was hiding, who murdered her, and a plethora of other things.
Megan Collins writes this book in a way, that points a finger to one person, but I knew better than to believe that. What made this book so devourable, was the game, the whodunnit and my complete distaste for Annie. Although, I kind of had it figured out halfway through the book, I still loved every twist and turn. There are more characters in this book, than the ones listed in the synopsis. Some I really enjoyed (Jill) and some, I think added extra depth to the mystery.
If you guys haven’t read this one, I highly suggest it.
