'A hugely accomplished thriller, which derives its power from excellent characterisation - they're all well-rounded, recognisable, believable real people - and a meticulously twisty plot. I honestly had NO idea what the secret at the heart of the book was, until right at the very end. In a market-place crowded with grip-lit, Sisters and Lies is head and shoulders above the rest.' Marian Keyes One hot August night, Rachel Darcy gets the call everyone fears. It's the police. Her younger sister Evie's had a car crash, she's in a coma. Can Rachel fly to London right away? With Evie injured and comatose, Rachel is left to pick up the pieces of her sister's life. But it's hard fitting them together, especially when she really doesn't like what she sees. Why was Evie driving when she doesn't even own a licence? Who is the man living in her flat and claiming Evie is his girlfriend? How come she has never heard of him? The more mysteries Rachel uncovers the more she starts asking herself how well she ever really knew her sister. And then she begins to wonder if the crash was really the accident everybody says it is. Back in hospital, Evie, trapped inside an unresponsive body, is desperately trying to wake up. Because she's got an urgent message for Rachel - a warning which could just save both their lives . . .

“A nail-biter from British author Howells. . . . Fans of psychological thrillers will be rewarded.” —Publishers Weekly Remember the script. Sisters look out for each other. It’s been ten years since Hannah Roscoe saw her older sister, but that distance fades to nothing when she receives a call from the police saying Nina is dead. As a teenager, desperate to leave home and make her career in music, Hannah moved into Nina’s cottage in the English countryside. In that secluded setting, Nina was trying to give her children the freedom she and Hannah never knew growing up. Now Nina is gone, and Hannah is left to care for her young nephew, Abe, who’s remote and moody in the wake of his loss. But worse is to come, as Nina’s death, first ruled an accident, becomes a murder investigation. Hannah is forced to confront their unhappy childhood and the reasons she and Nina drifted apart. As for Abe, Hannah suspects he’s hiding something, but whom is he trying to protect? Through it all, Hannah can't shake the feeling that someone else knows all about the secrets she and Nina shared—and the ones they kept hidden, even from each other. Perhaps Nina’s death is not a tragic ending after all, but the beginning of a new and twisted nightmare . . .

My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me: 1. I’m in a coma. 2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore. 3. Sometimes I lie. Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can’t move. She can’t speak. She can’t open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn’t remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it's the truth?

I found myself spiraling out of control as I became the victim of true insanity that was being manipulated around me at the hands of my sister. While we were all sitting waiting and watching our parents dying of cancer, my life was also in jeopardy. Each day I was losing the battle and it felt like there was no way to put a stop to it. Quickly it was becoming clear I was plummeting downward. Suicide wasn't just a thought - it was my plan. It was my chart to escape the only option that reality had put in my path. I needed to finally end this nightmare that had been created. There was no rational reason this was happening to me, therefore there was no rational reason to deal with it. I realized that I had absolutely no control over her actions that were happening around me and not having any control meant that I was also no longer control of my life, something that I was having a very hard time to deal with. I needed control, I had to know that somehow my life was my choice and yet I could not find it. When we are faced with our parents dying the dynamics in families change. Being faced with both parents dying at the same time not only changed those dynamics but increased the stress and pressures ten fold. I realized that I was not alone, death and family drama actually go hand in hand. Discovery that insanity existed outside of our dysfunctional unit was key in finding survival.

When seven-year-old Bethany meets her six-year-old cousin Reana Mae, it's the beginning of a kinship of misfits that saves both from a bone-deep loneliness. Every summer, Bethany and her family leave Indianapolis for West Virginia's Coal River Valley. For Bethany's mother, the trips are a reminder of the coalmines and grinding poverty of her childhood, of a place she'd hoped to escape. But her loving relatives, and Bethany's friendship with Reana Mae, keep them coming back. But as Bethany grows older, she realizes that life in this small, close-knit community is not as simple as she once thought. . .that the riverside cabins that hold so much of her family's history also teem with scandalous whispers. . .and that those closest to her harbor unimaginable secrets. Amid the dense woods and quiet beauty of the valley, these secrets are coming to light at last, with a force devastating enough to shatter lives, faith, and the bond that Bethany once thought would last forever. Spanning four decades, Sherri Wood Emmons' debut is a haunting, captivating novel about the unexpected, sometimes shocking events that thrust us into adulthood--and the connections that keep us tethered, always, to our pasts.
