This was an excellent mystery novel focusing on a sisterly love that lasts beyond the grave and the lengths a mother will go to in order to protect the child she calls her own. Loved it!

A thriller with lots of twists and turns, parts of it were slow but the storyline itself was entertaining.

A fast paced thriller with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. I kept thinking I had it figured out and then I was thrown off yet again. Sometimes I felt the twists were a bit too much but overall it was a good read.

My Sister's Child is a story of many secrets in a family. Rachel is pregnant and doesn't want to keep the baby. Jess who has been unable to get pregnant decides that she will raise the baby as her own. She promised Jess she would protect and keep him safe.

Rachel has drowned and the police think it was an accident. Jess believes it was murder and she investigates her sister and those around her.

This family has so many secrets it's amazing they could keep them a secret for so long. The truth comes out and as always there is great fallout within the family as they each deal with the truth.

This book started of well but after a while I struggled to get into it. It picked up pace towards the end.

This was an average thriller. It is fast paced and well written. It has the right amount of twists too however, it is not memorable. I have read quite a few similar books and this does not stand out for me.

Thank you NetGalley for this advanced copy. This book was just ok to me. Sounded good, didn't have the writing to meet the description. Ended up skimming more than anything. I was shocked by the ending though.

This book grabbed me from the very first page.  The story was exciting and well written with a very shocking ending.  I can usually guess who the culprit is but this had me stumped.  Very clever, but left me feeling quite sad at times.  Interesting characters and lots of red herrings to keep readers guessing – a great read.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publishers for allowing me the ARC in return for an honest review.

My Sister's Child by Karen Clarke


A very good story about a couple who struggled to have their own child , before taking on her drug taking sister's baby , Noah.
It was full of suspense , and as you thought you had an idea where it was going , it takes you on a complete different direction .
A fast paced thriller with a shocker of an ending.

A good novel. 
Rachel left her baby boy on my doorstep. A little bundle wrapped in blankets.I loved him. I cared for him. I called him Noah and raised him as my own. Rachel was full of secrets, and the truth about Noah was one we shared. A secret just between sisters. Now, my sister is dead. The police say it was an accident… But I’m convinced that’s a lie.I owe it to Rachel to uncover the truth… Even if I risk losing the family I’ve fought so hard for.
Karen Clarke's novels are always great with suspense. I love to read her books. 
Thanks to NetGalley and HQ for giving me an advance copy.

My Sisters Child
By Karen Clarke 

Mini Review....


My Sisters Child was gripping from the start, 
The characters were believable and also imperfect, layered and well-developed.
So engaging with plenty of twists and turns. 
I thought I had worked out what was going to happen but I could never of imagined the route the story then went down. 
It was an addictive and chilling read with a very dramatic ending. 
Fast paced and a thrilling read! Great story, pace, and development!
The storyline was really good and it felt as if you were living the life of the main character alongside them.
The ending you would never have guessed and it was a brilliant ending too. It had everything I love in a thriller and more and I look forward to Karen’s next book.

Sometimes missing or kidnapping stories I sometimes have a hard time reading but this was fascinating, entertaining and very well written!

Thank you again to the publisher, NG and Karen for this eARC!
