    EXCERPT: She rolls over and reaches out into the space where she was placed. Reaches for her instinctively: her baby. Her hand hits air, and flaps redundantly. She sits up in bed and looks around her, head jerking wildly in first one direction, then the other. Perhaps someone lifted the baby off the bed and put her in the moses basket. She squints over at the corner of the room, but where the moses basket sat before, there's just a patch of grimy carpet.

I wanted to like it. I enjoyed the previous two books that I have read by this author. But this just didn't work for me beyond being merely an okay read. It is, in the beginning, a confusing read. The author is telling two stories over two timelines, but these aren't clearly delineated, so you don't actually realise that this is what is happening until some way through the book. Once this became apparent I knew. And I really only read on, skimming, to confirm that I was right. I was. It was really all a bit too obvious. Or maybe I just read too many of this type of book. An average read from an author I expect better of. ⭐⭐.5 #HerSistersChild #NetGalley THE AUTHOR: I was born in the Cotswolds but spent most of my formative years abroad.

    Years after her sister's death, Paula sets out to find answers behind her sister's missing child. What she discovers are secrets and a mind twisting discovery. Her Sister's Child has a very intriguing concept, however at times we found it difficult to follow, with the multiple moving parts, POVs, and timelines. Though the villain was anticipated, readers are given a glimpse to how the individual unravelled. With a climax that concluded quickly, it left us feeling slightly incomplete.

Sixteen years later, when Paula bumps into an old friend from the past, she realises she wasn’t the only one who knew about her sister’s child. Someone knows what happened that day. Can Paula find out the truth before another family is ripped apart? It was a very interesting premise, something that was new to me and I couldn’t wait to get into the book and find out what happens. The plot in itself was well written with quite a lot of twists, some of which were quite predictable. All the characters were good. While some of their back stories were well defined, I felt that till the end I couldn’t quite find out or understand much about Johnny’s involvement and his reasons and desire to help Paula. A slight disappointment for me was that while the entire book was fast paced and filled with suspense, I felt that the ending was kind of rushed and hence, kind of felt flat. Overall, a good read if not for the rushed end. Thank You to NetGalley and Bookouture for this ARC!

    Clever but complicated. The second conclusion - which happened because of the sheer number of characters, multiple identities and ever-changing time frames - almost caused me to pack it in. But the first one started to kick in somewhere around the halfway point - and from then on, I was glued to my Kindle till the very last page. Paula Donnelly regularly visits the grave of her older sister, an alcoholic who died when she was 24 (at the time of Paula's current visit, Lizzie would have been 40). T Clever but complicated. The second conclusion - which happened because of the sheer number of characters, multiple identities and ever-changing time frames - almost caused me to pack it in. But the first one started to kick in somewhere around the halfway point - and from then on, I was glued to my Kindle till the very last page. Paula Donnelly regularly visits the grave of her older sister, an alcoholic who died when she was 24 (at the time of Paula's current visit, Lizzie would have been 40). Their parents gave up on Lizzie many years ago, but Paula remains loyal. Besides that, she's convinced that Lizzie had been pregnant, and gave birth shortly before she died. Paula, now divorced with two children of her own, is intent on finding out what happened to that baby (if, in fact, there really was one). Next up is Charlie, who is pregnant and not at all sure she really wants a baby. Still, she resists her parents' demand that she have an abortion and moves out to a flat she shares with the birth father, who's a real cad. Then it's back to Paula, who meets a former schoolmate at a bar she happens to visit while trying to decide how to proceed with her baby search. As it turns out, he's very willing to help - although it's questionable whether it's altruistic, or wants to curry favor with Paula or something more sinister. The plot shifts perspective from these and other characters until it finally turns enlightening - and exciting. A good bit of the tale is predictable once things start coming together, although there's one big reveal that comes as a surprise (at least it did to me). All in all, I really enjoyed the book, and I thank the publisher, via NetGalley, for allowing me to read and review a pre-release copy. I do advise other readers, though, to do what I always do (mostly as a memory aid when it comes to writing my reviews): Keep notes on names and relationships along the way. It's a lot easier to refer to notes, especially if you're reading on a Kindle as I do, than trying to locate the place in the book to find the character who appears several chapters later but you can't remember who he or she is.

    Her Sister's Child is the latest, terrifying psychological thriller from Ms James, which centres around the worst nightmare any parent or family could live through. It's been sixteen years now since Paula Armitage's older sister Lizzie, an alcoholic who at the time was pregnant, asks Paula not to tell anyone else that she has a bun in the oven. Paula last saw Lizzie when she was going through labour and has seen hide nor hair of her or the baby since and is starting to become worried. A couple o Her Sister's Child is the latest, terrifying psychological thriller from Ms James, which centres around the worst nightmare any parent or family could live through. It's been sixteen years now since Paula Armitage's older sister Lizzie, an alcoholic who at the time was pregnant, asks Paula not to tell anyone else that she has a bun in the oven. Paula last saw Lizzie when she was going through labour and has seen hide nor hair of her or the baby since and is starting to become worried. A couple of days later, Paula hears of Lizzie's death but there is no information about what happened to the newborn; as no one else even knew of the pregnancy, Paula suffers in silence toying with the idea of confessing all to her family in the hope of finding the baby safe and sound. Unfortunately, when she does pluck up the courage to tell her mother, she jumps to the conclusion that it was just the ramblings of a grief-stricken teen. Meanwhile, in present day, Paula, still enveloped by the guilt of not knowing what happened, visits Lizzie's grave on the day of her fortieth birthday and decides she has waited long enough to discover the truth and sets out to locate her niece alongside school friend Johnny, as often the pain of not knowing can be worse than the truth. We are also introduced to Charlie, a young girl who accidentally falls pregnant, and although her boyfriend decides to stick around it's only because she is wealthy and nothing to do with the new life they have made together. He's detestable as he feels he's entitled to spend her dosh on whatever he fancies—luxury cars and opulent holidays included. The icing on the cake is the fact that he treats her like utter garbage. So when the relationship inevitably ends she moves back home to have the support of her parents who can help out with the baby, despite initially having pressured her to abort it. But horrifyingly, on the day she's due to move in the newborn is abducted... This is a compulsive and thoroughly addictive domestic-based mystery-thriller, which tells the tale of three very different women at very different stages of life, whose lives intertwine in unexpected ways. We've met both Paula and Charlie but the third central figure in the plot is social worked Marian. It's exciting and interesting to see the way their stories unravel and how the twisty narrative tells an emotional tale of each person's trials and tribulations. With enough tension and reveals to keep you reading long into the night and characters who are relatable and believable, this is a compelling page-turner.

Charlie gives birth to a child at seventeen against the wishes of her parents who beg her to give the child up and continue her education. This is a twisty and convoluted ride that will have you scrambling for answers. Recommended. 4.5 stars Many thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for this ARC.

There is a body of a baby is found and Paula knows that it has something to do with Lizzie. She goes on the hunt to find out what really happened to Lizzie’s baby. This is another cleverly written story, written in several points of view that come together at the end. It is also a heartfelt story of one person who goes to the extreme to become a mother and a sad story of another losing her child. I really enjoyed this story about motherhood. I was engaged from the start right through to the end. Five stars from me.

    This was an interesting concept and the book itself is a quick read, but there were some questions left unanswered. The basis of the story is that alcoholic Lizzie may or may not have had a baby before she tragically passed away. The book alternates between the POVs of Lizzie's sister, Paula, teenager Charlie, and social worker, Marian, and bounces back and forth between 16 years ago and current time.

I liked the different voices and the fact that the chapters alternated between them, but the timelines were a bit confusing- maybe just because it was an ARC, but I would have loved to see each chapter call out the timeframe when it takes place, instead of me having to read a few lines and orient myself around when it took place. I thought the characters were built out for the most part, but I had unresolved questions about why they made some of the decisions they made, and wish I could have gotten more of a backstory that would have made those decisions make sense. The ending was a little rushed for me, but I did find it interesting and it tied at least the main pieces of the story together. Overall, if you are looking for a fast-paced read with a bit of mystery, I'd recommend the book, but know that it doesn't get really deep into the motives of some of the characters, so you might walk away with some questions. Thanks to Netgalley for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    This is a gripping family drama. The story is told from three different perspectives - Paula, Charlie and Marian and they all play a very important part in how this story unravels. The book is also split into three parts - present, past and then back to the present.

The story opens with Lizzie waking up to find that her new baby has gone, just a few days later Lizzie Armitage is found dead in her flat, but what became of her baby? Her younger sister Paula vows to do everything she can to find out, she feels guilty for keeping her sister's pregnancy a secret, if she had just told someone about it maybe they would both still be here, but every way she turns she hits a brick wall, was Lizzie ever pregnant or was it all a dream? Everyone close to the sisters denies there ever being a baby, that is until Paula bumps into an old friend who also knew about her sister's child, Paula is determined to find out what happened and where Lizzie's baby went, but will she uncover the truth before others get hurt? This is an intriguing family drama, told from three perspectives and various timelines, it's an emotional read, highlighting how far a desperate person will go, to get the one thing that they crave and the immense fallout their actions cause. I thought the characters were well portrayed and the plot well crafted, I loved the short, sharp chapters and the drama that evolved throughout. If you like a fast paced edge of your seat read, then this is for you. This is the first I've read by this author but I've now added her other two standalones to my Amazon list. I'd like to thank Bookouture and Netgalley for the auto approval, I will post my review on Goodreads now and Amazon on publication day

    Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for letting me read this book early in exchange for an honest review. I felt like this book really held my attention in the beginning but as the story went on, I lost interest. This book had such a creative theme and it’s obvious that the author put a lot of time and effort into writing this. However, I found the book to be mostly predictable. I will say that there was one twist that I did not see coming.

Though there were some issues with the novel - it felt a little predictable and confusing at times as it shifted between characters and timelines - it captured my attention for the first page and held some surprising twists along the way. The characters are well written and each of the protagonists are flawed and complex. There were times they'd pull on my heartstrings and others I'd want to shake some sense into them. Their connection might seem obvious, but the full picture of how these women are linked is more intricate than it first appears and there are plenty of shocking revelations as the full picture is slowly unveiled. A moving, compelling and twisty thriller, this is a great read for anyone who enjoys this genre.

    She had it. Someone else wanted it and took it. Then couldn’t cope up with it and gave it away. But suddenly wanted it back. The ‘it’ I spoke of wasn’t a thing but a baby who was passed around according to the whims of the ladies.

Her sister Paula was the only one who knew about her pregnancy. But with Lizzie’s death, nobo She had it. Someone else wanted it and took it. Then couldn’t cope up with it and gave it away. But suddenly wanted it back. The ‘it’ I spoke of wasn’t a thing but a baby who was passed around according to the whims of the ladies. My Sister’s Child by Alison James had pathos along with mystery for the child which was lost to both women. Lizzie Armitage, an alcoholic, gave birth and the child disappeared. Her sister Paula was the only one who knew about her pregnancy. But with Lizzie’s death, nobody knew or bothered to know about the child. Paula was determined to find her but was unsuccessful. Years later, she met a common friend who knew about the baby. And the search was on… A parallel storyline told me the story of Charlotte’s life and teenage pregnancy, who was determined to be with the baby father even when he hated her. Both the story lines were linked as the pages turned. Having read earlier books of the author, I was quite eager to start this one. The cover too lured me in. The plot was easy to guess. Paula was enthusiastic in her search for the child; her characterization stood out for me. Teenage love was well depicted, but for the life of me, I didn’t understand the mindset of the teen who was desperate to live with a boy who used and threw her and wanted nothing to do with pregnancy. The book caught its second wind when Charlotte’s baby too disappeared. A definite case of history repeating itself. The perp was a surprise. Overall, the story filled me with pain for the baby which was tossed around. But all was well that ended well. The story was the truth of life. The one who wanted the most, never got it. And the one who didn’t want it, got it in surplus. The mysteries of pregnancy and infertility would forever remain in the hands of nature.

I enjoyed the way the book is structured and how it plays out from multiple points of view over different time periods. Each character is complex and brings their own personality to life through the pages and gives the reader an in-depth view to each of them, the events that have occurred and how they all form together in the present. The first half of Her Sister’s Child does move along at a slightly slower pace to begin with as the foundation is laid, but at no time did I want to stop reading the book. Once it gets going though, it does so at high speed making for more of a thrilling second half. I also felt that the ending was a little bit rushed, but was still satisfying in its outcome. Her Sister’s Child is a gripping tale that really pulls on the heartstrings. It is thrilling, emotive and will have you completely invested in it from start to finish. It is a great psychological thriller to lose yourself in and I look forward to seeing what Alison James comes up with for her readers next. Thank you to Alison James, Bookouture and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Her Sister’s Child, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

When she was found, there was no baby, yet Paula is positive she was pregnant. Flash forward to the present, and Paula is still determined to find out what happened.

This book goes back and forth between the past and the present, sometimes it is hard to tell which you are reading about at the start of the chapter. It is interesting to see how closely the facts and families interacted over the years, yet didn't know about each other. There are a lot of twists and turns but it was easy to figure out who was who and what was happening.. Sadly, I think too many women find that they can't have a baby for some reason, and some may resort to other means of obtaining one.

Other books I have read where some sort of baby kidnapping or disappearance was involved have been quite good, so I really wanted to read this one too. I liked reading the story from different points of view, but by the blurb I thought that Paula would be the main character of the story. When she started to disappear in the background to leave room for Charlie first and then for the crazy ramblings of Marian, I was a bit disappointed. I have to say that the character of Marian is a proper nutcase, but most of the things that happened to her seemed to me a little too convenient. And the ending was rushed and I was expecting more. The incredible plot twist that was announced on the book cover, well, it was okay, but it wasn’t that surprising. I know, I’m very picky. But I read quite a lot of thrillers every month so I started to find patterns and predictability in the books I read, even if I try not to do so. But the twist in this book was fine; I didn’t predict it, so that’s good. Overall, a good story that will keep you reading. Perfect for a rainy weekend with a steamy cuppa.

    This book was suspenseful, gripping, mysterious and had some great twists. My Sisters Child is told from 3 different POV’s (my favourite thing): Paula Charlie and Marian and they all play a very important part in how this story unravels. The book is also split into 3 different parts, skipping from present, past and back to present which I thought allowed me to connect the characters a lot more as it gave me the information I needed to understand their past lives.

Charlie finds herself pregnant and thinks that a future with Jake is all she needs, but what is that going to cost her? And Marian wants nothing more than to have a family of her own. This was a fantastic psychological thriller that had me gripped from the very first page. It has portrayed just how far (maybe too far) some people will go in the hope to get a loving family of their own. Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Alison James for the ARC of this book. I can’t wait to see what the author comes up with next!

    I am excited to be taking part in the #BooksOnTour #BlogTour for Alison James fantastic twisted thriller HER SISTER'S CHILD. "She rolls over and reaches for her instinctively: her baby. Her hand hits air and flaps redundantly. She stumbles out of bed and switches on the light. But this only confirms it. The baby is gone. Someone has taken her." The story opens with a woman, which we soon discover is Lizzie Armitage, waking from another drunken stupor to find that her newborn baby is gone. And I am excited to be taking part in the #BooksOnTour #BlogTour for Alison James fantastic twisted thriller HER SISTER'S CHILD. "She rolls over and reaches for her instinctively: her baby. Her hand hits air and flaps redundantly. She stumbles out of bed and switches on the light. But this only confirms it. The baby is gone. Someone has taken her." The story opens with a woman, which we soon discover is Lizzie Armitage, waking from another drunken stupor to find that her newborn baby is gone. And then just a few short days later Lizzie is found dead in her flat. But became of her baby? Did she even have a baby? No one, not her parents nor her social worker or anyone knew if Lizzie was even pregnant. All except Paula, Lizzie's younger sister. Despite being banned from having any contact with her alcoholic older sister, Paula Armitage snuck out as often as she could and made her way to the council flat in which Lizzie was living. One day upon arrival, she was shocked to discover the exposed stomach protruding on Lizzie's thin frame. Lizzie was pregnant. And by the looks of it, she was a fair way along. As soon as she realised Paula had seen the bulge, Lizzie begged her little sister not to tell anyone. Not a soul. If anyone discovered she was pregnant they would only take the baby from her and Lizzie wanted her child, vowing the baby would sober her up. So Paula scavenged together her savings and went out to purchase babygros, nappies and a Moses basket, packing them into a drawer in Lizzie's wardrobe ready for the baby's arrival. When she left, she promised Lizzie she would be back again in a few days. But then her mother reminded her they were going away for the week, as they always do, to her aunt's in Liverpool. So Paula made a mental note to check in on Lizzie as soon as she returned from their holiday. As it turned out, it rained for most of the time so her mother decided that they should return home to London but before Paula could make her way over to Lizzie's, there was a knock on the door. It was the police. Lizzie had been found dead in her flat. Paula was devastated, and shocked. Without thinking she asked "What about the baby?" Her mother and the police looked at her and said "What baby?" Now sixteen years later, Paula is divorced with two teenage children of her own. She visits Lizzie's grave on what would have been her sister's 40th birthday and, still feeling guilty at having kept the pregnancy a secret, promises her that she will find out what happened to her baby. But over the course of time, Paula has found no evidence that a baby had ever existed. All the baby clothes, the nappies and even the Moses basket she was sure she had bought were all gone. Everyone who knew them denies there ever being a baby. Was Lizzie really ever pregnant? Or was it all a dream? Then one day Paula bumps into an old friend, Johnny Shepherd, who, during reminiscing about Lizzie, asks "So what happened to her baby?" Paula knew then that she hadn't been dreaming. It was real. Lizzie HAD been pregnant. And yet her baby had disappeared. With Johnny's help, Paula is determined to find out what really happened to her sister's baby and uncover the truth behind what happened sixteen years ago. Alongside Paula's story we also meet Charlie, a teenage girl who finds herself pregnant and, despite her parents cajoling, decides to keep the baby. Against her parents' wishes, she finds the bank account that was set up for her as a baby by her grandmother and sets out to convince the baby's father that they should set up home together. Jake is all for it once he discovers how much money is involved, convincing Charlie on leasing an Audi, despite needing the funds to live on until Jake gets a job. But Jake has no intention of getting a job...not with tens of thousands of pounds ready for the taking. Charlie thought that the prospect of fatherhood would prompt Jake to take some responsibility but all he seems to be doing is milking her of her savings. Flat screen TV, games console, an Audi sports car which isn't child friendly...and yet he has never attended any of her scans or even acknowledged the existence of the baby, except to make known he only wants a boy. So when Charlie arrives home one day, heavily pregnant, to discover everything of any worth has gone along with Jake she realises she has been a fool. And then her waters break... Addictive and compelling from the start, HER SISTER'S CHILD is fast paced and suspenseful throughout as Paula searches to uncover the truth about what really happened to Lizzie's baby. Did the baby live or die? Was it a boy or a girl? Paula didn't even know. I enjoyed her quest for the truth as her and Johnny teamed up, despite wondering if Johnny had some ulterior motive (I kind of hoped he didn't), and watching it unfold. Throughout the story we meet Paula as both an adult and a teenager in chapters from the past (which really should have been labelled as such). She is an endearing young woman who obviously cares deeply for her older sister, despite being forbidden to have anything to do with her. Lizzie is a seasoned alcoholic who ended up stealing from her family to fund her habit in alcohol and marijuana. Her's was a sorry tale of a life which ended at just 24 from an aortic aneurysm, perpetuated by her drinking. Despite her resourcefulness, Charlie is a sweet, yet naive, young girl who I found myself yelling at much of the time. I could see the situations she was creating for herself and how they would end up, even if she couldn't. Her parents clearly wanted what was best for her and a child at 16 was not it. The money set up for her in the account she used to set up house with Jake was meant for her university education. But needs must and Charlie could not end the life of an innocent child just because it was inconvenient. Her chapters are somewhat depressing as the reader can clearly see how it will all turn out, even if Charlie couldn't. By the time we reach Part Two and introduced to Marian, it is soon clear how Paula, Charlie and Marian are connected. These chapters are told "in the past" between Marian and a teenage Paula. My biggest gripe with the entire book is that there was no definition between the past and the present in the chapters. When Part Two begins, it should be titled as "2003" so the reader is aware that the following chapters take place in the past. It was a little confusing at first when I was reading with Lizzie being still alive and Paula returning home from school. This is when I realised the story had moved to sixteen years before. Then when we move into Part Three, we have "before" and "now" chapters although both take place in the present day. For clarity's sake, each "Part" should be clearly titled with their actual timeline. Part One - Present Day Part Two - 2003 Part Three - Present Day And to make matters even more confusing, between Parts One and Two, there is something called "Untitled" with chapters one through to four. Well, it was in the pre-released ARC I received prior to publication. I can only hope that this is shifted into the end of the first part as there didn't seem to be any reason for it to stand alone "untitled". But with that aside, HER SISTER'S CHILD is a gripping read from beginning to end. Told from the three narratives, the main character throughout is always Paula with Charlie and Marian's stories slowly emerging as the plot progresses. As the three women's stories collide, the result is shocking yet brilliant in a way that makes the story even better...if that were possible. Some twists were unexpected and some were predictable but on the whole, HER SISTER'S CHILD is a brilliant twisty thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat throughout. I have read three of Alison James' thrillers to date and while I wasn't as struck on "The School Friend" , I LOVED "The Man I Married" and now HER SISTER'S CHILD. It is a fantastic psychological and domestic thriller that had me almost reading it in its entitrety in one sitting...but I had to sleep. In all, HER SISTER'S CHILD is a definite read for fans of domestic thrillers and dramas. Thoroughly recommended. I would like to thank #AlisonJames, #NetGalley, #Bookouture for an ARC of #HerSistersChild in exchange for an honest review.

Then the first chapter begins with Paula Donnelly visiting her sister Lizzie’s grave before returning home to her two children. Paula has always wondered if LIzzie had a baby before she died and if so where that child is now. Paula starts a search with the help from an old school friend of Lizzie’s, the handsome Johnny Shepherd. Other parts of the book are told from the point of view of Charlie who is a teenaged student who gets pregnant. There are also some chapters told from the point of view of Marian Glynn, a social worker. This is a fast-paced and suspenseful book. Paula’s search for the truth about a possible niece or nephew she has out in the world somewhere is interesting. I enjoyed how she and Johnny teamed up, even when I wasn’t always sure if Johnny had some kind of ulterior motive. Most of Charlie’s chapters are very depressing. She is a sweet, but naive young woman and it’s hard reading about the situations she gets into. By the time the reader is introduced to Marian’s point of view, it’s clear how Paula, Charlie, and Marian are connected. However, I was shocked by the huge twist that comes in Part Three of the book and it makes the story even better. I like the way things turned out at the end, but the book stops somewhat abruptly with many things being wrapped up through the epilogue. This is the second book I’ve read by Alison James and I have enjoyed them both. I like the fast pace, the twist at the end, and interesting characters, especially Paula. I received this ebook from NetGalley through the courtesy of Bookouture. An advance copy was provided to me at no cost, but my review is voluntary and unbiased.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I wanted to like this book but it was so far fetched. As someone who knows a little about children’s social care, the information was wildly inaccurate and the idea of the evil social worker a terribly dangerous and outdated cliche. I also disliked the childless mad woman narrative. I appreciate the effort that it must have taken to write the book though and the main character Paula was fairly likeable. It also flowed well as a story and was easy to read and follow. Read through netgalley

Alison picks an incredible unique (oh some are very unique) cast of characters for her fascinating storylines. Each storyline is incredibly powerful, intense, and has a life lesson thrown into it. Alison has incredible talent writing in this genre. I hope to read more of her work. The Graphic Artist pulled on my heart strings with this one. It was perfect for this book. Alison gave her readers some very important life lessons, brought awareness to Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, alcoholism and IVF. This book kept me on my toes, it was fast paced, mind boggling twists and turns, heart stopping moments, crazy secrets from the past that catch up with your present. Alison takes you from present day to the past to learn more about the characters and the storyline. This aspect is very important to each storyline. I was amazed how Alison took all three storylines and meshed them together into one at the end. It was when you put in the last piece to the big puzzle. This is one book where I can honestly say I loved all the storylines in the book. Each storyline fascinated me to no end. However, unfortunately I can’t say that for all the characters in the book. Jake pissed me off with his juvenile behavior. He so rubbed me the wrong way. The names Saffron and Noah for the twins I absolutely loved. So unique and different.

I strongly considered DNF'ing this book at multiple points, but I decided to trudge through. My first issue was just the formatting.

I strongly considered DNF'ing this book at multiple points, but I decided to trudge through. My first issue was just the formatting. Its supposed to be split into 3 parts but theres a random "untitled" section in the middle. As it is, the timeline jumps around quite a bit, so the formatting issues really made it confusing. This book is about Paula, Charlie and Marian (though Marian doesnt appear until part 2). Paula is looking for her sister, Lizzie's, baby. In present day, Lizzie's baby is taken and then days later Lizzie is found dead from consequences of being an alcoholic. However, Paula doesn't know if there was a baby or not-- her sister's life was all very sketchy. Paula teams up with her old friend Johnny and together they try to find out what happened to her baby, assuming there was one. Charlie is a teenage girl who finds herself pregnant by a terrible boyfriend. Marian is Lizzie's social worker. As Jonny is introduced, we start to question his intentions. He spends a lot of time and money trying to help Paula but we don't know why and its kind of suspicious but it never goes anywhere. There were a lot of plot holes and things like that (including time jumps) that were unexplained and pulled me out of the story. The majority of this book was very predictable and it had 2 things I HATE seeing in books. Lizzie was demonized so much because she was an alcoholic. Her parents had disowned her and everyone wrote her off and made it seem like what a waste of a person. Nobody in her inner circle tried to help her but instead treated her like a terrible person. The other thing I HATE is the crazy infertile woman trope. Infertile women in kidnapping stories are always portrayed as these women who are criminally desperate for a child and I cannot stand that. Overall, I hope this book gets a little bit more editing before publication, but there are still a few red flags that would be deal breakers for me. SPOILERS AHEAD: Lizzie had twins and they were taken by the social worker. However, the boy baby dies and then she breaks and ends up leaving the girl baby in a hospital when she won't sleep. The baby ends up getting adopted by her (Marian's) ex husband and shocker, that baby is now Charlie. Charlie has her baby (a girl) and Marian tries to kidnap it to make up for giving Charlie up but in the end she hands it back to Paula and kills herself.

Her younger sister Paula, did however visit her in her squalid flat and one day noticed that Lizzie was pregnant. Lizzie begged her sister to keep her secret. Her dead beat of a boyfriend was also an addict and Paula despised him. Paula lovingly bought a layette for the baby and guarded her secret just as she had promised to. Lizzie gave birth not long after her visit and enlisted her social worker Marian to help her with her homebirth. She was drunk and incapable of looking after her baby but was adamant that she wanted to keep her child. Marian herself desperately wanted a family but she had left it too late and when she got her husband Tom on board they had a heart breaking setback. The time was not right and their only option was adoption. For sixteen years Paula had tried to find out what had happened to Lizzie’s baby. Lizzie passed away soon after giving birth and the investigation soon floundered. Nobody took much notice of her very young sister Paula and dismissed what she insisted was true. There was no evidence of a baby left in Lizzies home and the investigation was called off. Coincidentally Paula met an old school friend from her past called Johnny. His interest was piqued. This is the story of Lizzie’s child, a thrilling mystery story waiting to be solved. But can Paula find out the truth before another family becomes the prey of a determined kidnapper? With issues of infertility, teenage pregnancy, adultery, desperation and more, this novel was an emotional and scary read with multiple twists and turns and more than a few red herrings. The storyboard was complex and puzzling at times. The trio of narrators told their story chapter by chapter and throughout three different parts. As they told their historic story and current stories, so the anti was upped. I was kept in suspense throughout the story and all the horror of what had happened. The different threads were eventually successfully merged in a roller-coaster of activity. My favourite character was Paula who was driven and determined that justice would be achieved for her sister Lizzie. I liked Johnny as well. He was certainly invested in Lizzie’s story and his friendship and support of Paula was just what she needed. I didn’t like the other two narrators nearly as much as I liked Paula. An additional thread was very interesting and involved an unplanned pregnancy and even more suspense. The ending was like a blast of dynamite but it did bring resolution and was most enjoyable. I received a complimentary copy of this new novel from publisher Bookouture through my membership of NetGalley. These are my own honest opinions without any outside influences. It was a good read and with tense and well manipulated storytelling.

I loved the exciting plotline and the pacing moved along at a fair rate of knots. Full of thrills and totally addictive, it held my attention from the very first chapter, but I could never have imagined what the explosive ending would reveal. I thought the characterisation really befitted this story, with relatable and believable characters including both the good and the bad. This brilliant story was a domestic-based mystery-thriller that told the tale of three very different women at varying stages of life, whose lives intertwine in unexpected ways. It was masterfully executed by the author, Alison James whose vivid and suspenseful writing style continued to wow me. I shall be looking out for more by Alison James who has great talent and I intend to read her 'Detective Rachel Prince' series. I recommend Her Sister's Child as a hugely worthwhile and an excellent read. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
