Book Review | The Wicked Sister by Dionne Karen

Wednesday, August 31, 2022

Summary: You have been cut off from society for fifteen years, shut away in a mental hospital in self-imposed exile as punishment for the terrible thing you did when you were a child. But what if nothing about your past is as it seems? And if you didn’t accidentally shoot and kill your mother, then whoever did is still out there. Waiting for you.

For a decade and a half, Rachel Cunningham has chosen to lock herself away in a psychiatric facility, tortured by gaps in her memory and the certainty that she is responsible for her parents’ deaths. But when she learns new details about their murders, Rachel returns, in a quest for answers, to the place where she once felt safest: her family’s sprawling log cabin in the remote forests of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

As Rachel begins to uncover what really happened on the day her parents were murdered, she learns-as her mother did years earlier-that home can be a place of unspeakable evil, and that the bond she shares with her sister might be the most poisonous of all.

Rating: ⭐⭐

My Thoughts: I didn’t really like this book at all, which kind of surprised me. I am usually a fan of mystery/thriller books, but this one didn’t do it for me. It was entirely too predictable.

There was basically zero character development, in my opinion. Everything moved fast and a lot of it seemed unfinished. Again, it was too predictable and there was really no mystery to it. I wish I had more to say, but I don’t because I just didn’t like it enough.
