girls, one good, one bad, one dead Alison and Kitty are bound by a secret Kitty lives in a care home, Alison has a normal life But someone is watching Kitty and Alison, someone who wants revengewhen only another life will do This is a very unique and original storyline and a huge change from the normal psychological thrillers around these days I ve developed a lot respect and understanding for mentally physically disabled people through reading this book a subject that I m sadly very naive about there is so much frustration in the patient that needs to be vented when they re unable to communicate correctly I still didn t quite like Kitty despite her disadvantages I guess some personalities show through regardless of circumstances The authors detailed research into disabilities etc and into the developments now available to aid people s communication is to be commended, and it s obvious the author has included a lot of her own experience working in a prison in her writing Not having a sister or any siblings myself I can never relate or understand the bond that exists between you but I really did feel the emotions conveyed in the book between the half sisters.Well written with excellent dialogue, diverse characters and an intriguing plot mixed with a hint of humour, all adds to a superbly crafted novel that I highly recommend Jane Corry author of My Husbands Wife has a huge following and without a doubt I expect this book to be huge in 2017 when it s released flag 130 likesLike see review View all 9 comments Aug 10, 2017 Berit rated it really liked it review of

anything about the accident, locked inside herself, unable to communicate with anyone Alison has no close relationships, barely makes ends meet, but has taken up Kitty s passion for art In dire need of funds, Alison applies for a job at a prison where she would teach art to the inmates Little did she know what the ramifications of that fateful decision would be This is a very ingenious psychological thriller The pacing is a little slow at first, with only a few interesting developments that almost had me sighing in boredom for a while I also found myself balking at the improbability of some of the situations presented to me But I had the feeling I should play along, and would be glad I stuck around for the ending of this one I m glad I followed my instincts This is a very well written novel twisty, sinister, and almost darkly humorous in some ways It is just the type of book this genre, which is in danger of becoming a parody of itself, desperately needs I d go so far as to say this book is one of the most unique psychological thrillers I ve read this year If you know me, you have heard me complain long and loud about seeing the twist coming or guessing whodunit too early in the story, and with psychological thrillers, in particular, the plots being too similar almost interchangeable But, that didn t happen with this novel not even close.Corry lulled me into complacency ,at first, with the deceptive pacing, but I vastly underestimated her skills, and found myself taken by surprise time and time again The plot is much intricate than it appears on the surface The story is a very cleverly woven web of suspense that caught me off guard and kept me that way until the bitter end I can t tell you how much I appreciated and respected the author for giving my brain a real workout I turned the last page nodding my head with approval, with a wry smile on my face, because she fooled me she got me good, especially with that last dollop of relish on top Ordinarily, I d complain about that too, but the understated quality of the book kept the twist coming at just the right intervals so that it was never in danger of being too over the top Very well done flag 105 likesLike see review View all 30 comments Feb 03, 2018 Norma Traveling Sister rated it really liked it review of another edition Shelves gr giveaways, netgalley edelweiss approved,

in fear that someone out there knows her secret she s been hiding all these years Blood Sisters by Jane Corry is a psychological thriller that is told by alternating the point of view between the characters all throughout the read Alison of course gets focus in the book but Kitty is also given a voice despite her disabilities letting the reader in on her personality and thoughts even though she cannot speak outright The character building was quite wonderful especially bringing in the thoughts of Kitty to give readers a glimpse into the past as the girls look back on that day while living very different lives in the present To me this one did get off to a slow start a bit as the story is being set up for the readers but once it got going it certainly made up for the slow start I found myself quite interested in the story but would warn other readers that there are a couple of things within that need a trigger warning as the story involves not only rape but self harm as well so some may want to avoid those topics The story of these girls is a pretty dark one with a ton of twists to keep one guessing right up until the very last page I received an advance copy from the

this is the story of Alison and Kitty, half sisters but so very different in personality that they hardly seemed related at all Maybe it would be different if my sister waswell, sisterly But instead, Kitty was constantly scratchy or downright hostile It was like living with the school bully but never being able to swap classes The cover shows the line Three Little Girls One good One bad One dead With a hook like that, how can you not be tempted.Blood Sisters drew me in straight away With the narrative told from the perspective of both sisters, you get a fully fleshed story and can empathise or not with the characters I didn t particularly like either sister although I didn t have to to enjoy the story I felt that Alison was always holding something back not being honest, and because of that I couldn t really get on her side, whilst Kitty was still a little madam despite her disability She may not have been able to articulate her thoughts out loud but she was very forthright and at times it was quite amusing knowing what she was actually thinking and watching others misinterpret.This story focuses heavily on disability but it is done sensitively and with compassion This aspect was so well written that it opened my eyes to how difficult communication and life in general can be, particularly for someone like Kitty You also see how difficult it is for the families trying to cope both physically and emotionally.Elder sister Alison is struggling to live on her wages from her art job at a local college so takes a second job at an open prison teaching art to the prisoners Now this is where the author s experience as a writer in residence at a prison really shines through, both in the authentic detail of prison procedure and the actual dangers facing not only staff but inmates too, this may have been a lower category prison but it could still be dangerous I always thought that open prisons housed prisoners convicted of white collar crime rather than murderers so this was a learning curve too.Initially this is rather a slow burner of a book whilst you get to know the characters and their current circumstances but once the narrative starts to switch between the two timelines, the piecemeal reveal of what really happened all those years before will keep you gripped There was one person that I had my doubts about and I almost did an air punch of satisfaction when I was proved partly right.You may think you have worked out what happened but the author will throw in a little twist or curveball to create those doubts There was one part later on that I thought was a little too convenient and I was a bit sceptical but having said that, generally there is a superb sense of unease and anticipation running throughout the story.Blood Sisters kept my attention from beginning to end and was a truly engrossing read Definitely one to be recommended flag 37 likesLike see review View all 4 comments Feb 16, 2018 Zoe rated it really liked it review of

noises emerge Which is a shame because her internal snark is hilarious Her life is defined by the meals she enjoys, the pleasure she takes in the company of a young volunteer at the home named Barbara, and the visits of Friday Mum The arrival of a new patient, a kindly young man who befriends her, brings the possibility of change for the better.What happened the day of the accident How did past wrongs and painful secrets lead to a tragedy that ruined so many lives This book is about how feeling guilty for something can drive us to harm ourselves whether we deserve it or not and how the

There is both love and envy Allison, a straight A student heading for college, post accident, suddenly drops out and turns to art She teaches an evening class in the college on stained glass making and joins an open prison as an art teacher for three days a week She meets Clive and life appears smooth for her But she is a cutter Is cutting herself and going to jail to teach a class, a penance for her crime Kitty, her younger half sister, locked in her own brain, where impulses from the brain do not reach the body She is stuck to a wheelchair with hidden memories, in a care home where nobody understands her She cannot talk but her brain does not stop talking She knows she must remember something but what Will she remember the past, remember the blood pact made with her friend and be loyal Every character introduced in the book has his her own secret Mother, Lilian s relationship with Alison s dad, Kitty s hate and fear of her own dad David, Alison s boyfriend of sorts Clive with his strange absences, prison inmates, Martin, Stefan, Kurt and how they connect to Alison in prison, Kitty s attraction to Johnny, and best friend Vanessa who shares her secret.This is Jane Corry s second book Her pace of writing is initially difficult to follow but the subsequent pages make it easy She soon connects the dots to all the questions and the end is a grand finale The plot builds up slowly rising in fervor It is labeled as a psychological thriller, but I did not get that, there was no rush of adrenaline, it comes across as a mystery It didn t take me on a journey I lost my connection to the characters, instead of being a part of story, I felt like a viewer of the story.Jane Corry s first book, My Husband s Wife was fabulous This is a little offbeat in its reading I would definitely read of her books as the story line is always good but with a little lesser expectations There is a quote from the book that I liked especially Love is close to hate when it comes to sisters, you re as close as two humans can be, you come from the same womb, the same background, even if you are poles apart mentally That s why it hurts so much when your sister is unkind to you I

the accident are set in 1991 while the other chapters are set 16 17 years later.In the later day chapters Alison has changed her name to Ali,is a art teacher and is living in London while Kitty is severely disabled,has no memory of the accident and is living in a care home.It was obvious that the author has extensively researched the ways that brain damage affects a person s behaviour and also the way that society treats people with disabilities.It is a sad fact that people with disabilities are treated with disdain and a total lack of respect.It is like they are not people just because they are not normal or healthy.Nothing in this book is ever what it seems,almost all of the realistic characters spend most of the story telling lie after lie just to protect themselves.You never know who is telling the truth because peoples stories are constantly changing.The chapters where short and snappy and often ended on a cliff hanger causing the reader too have a very bad case of just one chapter syndrome.Although some aspects of the story where a bit unrealistic and coincidental I really enjoyed this twisted psychological thriller and would happily read books by this author in the future.Many thanks to penguin random house uk for a arc of this book via netgalley in exchange for a honest review flag 21 likesLike see review View all 4 comments May 08, 2017 Charlotte May rated it

understand what people were saying and not being able to converse was portrayed brilliantly.This was a read full of startling surprises, SO many and this was the rare time where they all made sense instead of the dreaded twists just for the sake of shock value I wouldn t necessarily describe this as fast paced, though it wasn t exactly a slow burn either It was somewhere in the middle I suppose with sedate moments and others where the intensity was ratcheted up several notches, a nice balance By the time I got to the end I was desperate to know the truth about the day the accident happened and Corry even threw a few extra curveballs in that caught me off guard Overall, a very well written and well executed psychological thriller.Blood Sisters in three words Skillful, Absorbing and

shared nothing but the same intense dislike for each other And as adults they share even less than that, when a tragic accident causes their paths to diverge in two very different and unforeseen directions This accident is a secret better off buried, but the past has a way of unearthing itself, even after all these yearsI find stories of sibling rivalries always make for compelling reading, but this so than any other, due to one of the sister s severe disability Marginalised perspectives is something I am always eager to hear from, and this allowed for a unique insight into an individual suffering from something I have little knowledge of The author should be commended of her portrayal that was both sensitive and yet felt authentic The research that must have been done and the knowledge imparted to the reader made for such interesting and important reading Corry conveyed both the ways that brain damage affects a person s behaviour and also the ways that society treats people with disabilities.The other sister s perspective was just as interesting, if conformative And both combined to make this an inciting and thrilling read Whilst I did find this an enjoyable read, I also found it a little confusing at the start I found too many scenes were initially set up, in too short a space of time, and I was left wondering which of the sources of contention would become the main story line for the book I also found that my interest lay in the flashbacks of the past than in much of the present day settings This did quickly come together, but perhaps not quickly enough

her childhood now manifesting in her need to self harm It doesn t hurt enough Never does For it s the cuts we hide inside that really do the damage This story for me is stepping out of my reading comfort zone and surprisingly enjoying a style of writing where the reader becomes a bystander as events unfold through the voices of Alison and Kitty What is particularly poignant is the fact that Kitty cannot communicate by speech and her thoughts can only remain as thoughts not shared with the other players in the book but only with the privileged reader This is a very powerful story telling tool as the you read the you can appreciate and understand how difficult life is for someone so incapacitated The author effectively displays the structures and need that exists within the family unit and how, even in our darkest moments, that warm felling of love and tenderness can overcome the greatest adversity Now please do not suffer under the illusion that this is a banal and trite story, I

from both Kitty and Alison s perspectives and I loved how effortlessly their two story lines flowed together to form the big picture The two intersecting timelines was also a great inclusion to help
