There are two sides to every secret.

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

Born in the same week, in the same hospital, they look so physically alike they could be mistaken for twins. But the similarities end there…

Josie is sweet and reserved, a counselor with the perfect boyfriend and the perfect life. Valentina is damaged and reckless, and she always gets what she wants.

But what she wants is Josie’s life, and she’ll stop at nothing until she has it.



Josie is shocked when she found out her father died while riding his motorcycle very early one morning. Why was he out so early? Where was he going? When Josie went with her Mother to identify her Father’s body they discovered he didn’t even have his wallet or a form of ID on him, just a set of keys which Josie’s Mom assumes are for the flat they own in the city where her husband would stay during the week and then would come home and spend the weekends with her.

But when Josie goes to the apartment, she learns her Father, whom she loves and had a fantastic relationship with was keeping a secret, he had another family. Imagine discovering you have a sister who could be your twin, you look so identical and you were born only days apart, same Father but two different Mothers.   Josie and her half sister Valentina never knew the other existed or that the Father lived a double life with two family’s, one he lived with during the week, and another he lived with on the weekends. While Josie is overwhelmed by what she has learned, she is excited to get to know her sister Valentina. So why does everything start going wrong after Valentina becomes apart of her life and why did she receive a text message to stay away from her?

This was a great read with twists and turns as you try to figure out who is lying and what other secrets are being kept? This psychological thriller will keep you guessing until the end and I really enjoyed it.

I received this book as an ARC but as always I only give honest reviews regardless. The Good Sister is available now for pre-order and the estimated publishing date is August 16, 2017.
