Book Review { Sister Dear }

Before I start this review, I want to say I was really excited to read this book. On Goodreads it had an average rating of 4.12 stars out of 5, but I was a little disappointed.

Synopsis: All Allie Marshall wants is a fresh start.  But when dark secrets refuse to stay buried, will her chance at a new life be shattered forever?
Convicted of a crime she didn’t commit, Allie watched a decade of her life vanish – time that can never be recovered. Now, out on parole, Allie is determined to clear her name, rebuild her life, and reconnect with the daughter she barely knows. But Allie’s return home shatters the quaint, coastal community of Brunswick, Georgia. Even her own daughter Caroline, now a teenager, bristles at Allie’s claims of innocence. Refusing defeat, a stronger, smarter Allie launches a battle for the truth, digging deeply into the past even if it threatens her parole status, personal safety, and the already-fragile bond with family.
As her commitment to finding the truth intensifies, what Allie ultimately uncovers is far worse than she imagined. Her own sister has been hiding a dark secret—one that holds the key to Allie’s freedom.

Allie was convicted of a crime she swore she did not commit. She was sentenced to 10 years in prison and when she got out it was her goal to prove she didn't commit the crime. She had to learn how to ignore the looks, learn how to rebuild relationships and mostly she learned more about the night that ruined her life.

This book is categorized as a mystery or thriller, but it really didn't have any thrill to it at all. There was mystery but I was somewhat expecting the ending from the beginning. There were some plot twists but nothing that was like OMG or blew your mind away. It was a good read but it took me longer than most books, I never got the I just can't put it down feeling.
