Today I have a review for you from the book Sister, Psychopath by Maggie James.
When they were children, Megan adored her younger sister Chloe. Now she can’t bear to be in the same room as her.
Megan believes Chloe is a psychopath and her sister does appear to be a textbook case: cold, cruel and lacking in empathy.
Why does Chloe want to taunt Megan at every opportunity? And why does she persist in manipulating their mentally ill mother, Tilly?
When Tilly, under Chloe’s malignant influence, becomes dangerously unstable, the consequences are ugly. Megan’s world falls apart. Her sister’s out of control and there’s little she can do about it. Until Chloe’s actions threaten the safety of Megan’s former lover. A man from whom she has kept an important secret…
A study of sibling rivalry and dysfunctional relationships, Sister, Psychopath tells the story of one woman’s struggle to survive the damage inflicted by her own flesh and blood.
What a corker of a book! I seriously enjoyed reading this. The main character Megan is the sort of woman everyone can relate too. Most of us have siblings or family members we cannot stand, all have unrequited love, and generally stuggle for our careers and money. Chloe on the other hand plays the perfect villian, everythign about her reminded me of the mean girls you get at school and within business enviorments that drive you insane and get away with everything.
The build up through the story to that main critical point was fantastic, I never saw what was coming and the end twist? Saaayyy whaaaat???? I did NOT see that coming, maybe a few little parts of I had an inkling but not on that scale.
Maggie has a way of writing that sucks you in and keeps you glued to the pages. The character development was really well done. I would give this book 5/5 stars and highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good psychological thriller.
Thanks for reading.
