I’m not the wife you think I am

Jess’s sister Stephanie loves being a new mum, and is besotted with her baby daughter Natalie. She’s tired and a bit anxious, but that’s natural, isn’t it?

However, one night Stephanie disappears, taking Natalie with her. Jess tries to convince herself that there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation but as time goes on and CCTV images appear of a young woman with a baby, jumping in front of a high-speed train, Jess fears the worst. But was it Stephanie? And if not, where has she gone? And what does husband Adam have to hide?

In turmoil Jess goes in search of answers, but she isn’t prepared for what she uncovers… or for what happens next.

My Sister is Missing is an intense, twisted, psychological thriller that will make you question what is real, and whether you really can trust those you love.

My Thoughts:

There is nothing I like more than a great book from a debut author. Unfortunately My Sister is Missing by Julia Barrettmissed the mark a bit for me.

What it’s about: Jess’s sister Stephanie seems like she’s perfectly happy. She just had a beautiful baby girl Natalie and she’s happily married to her husband Adam. But one day she disappears, taking Natalie with her. Jess can’t figure out where she would have gone or why. Sure she was a little moody, but aren’t most new moms? Plus Adam seems to be hiding something. Jess goes searching for answers, but finds out more than she ever thought possible.

I really liked the flow of this book, and I definitely think this author has a lot of potential. There are multiple POVs, short chapters, and secrets which are all things I love. However, the book got confusing at times with obscure character viewpoints, sentences that jumped between people without much sense of who was talking, and a mystery that is really not so mysterious.

My Sister is Missing seems to be marketed as a psychological thriller/suspense novel, but I would call it more of a literary/women’s fiction novel with a touch of a mystery. There are tough themes that are dealt with really well, and I think the focus was more on those than an actual mystery.

Final Thought: While I didn’t find this book twisty or that mysterious, I did enjoy reading it. I would recommend to people that read a lot of women’s fiction and enjoy books with tough themes that are well done. I would also definitely read more from this author, and will be on the lookout for her next one!

MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ / 5

Thank you to the publisher for providing me with an advance review copy of this book!
