Blood Sisters had me engrossed from the minute I opened the first page. Its unique storyline and range of well-developed characters hooked me in and didn't let me go. I sat out in the garden reading and by the time I'd finished, it was getting dark! I didn't even stop to make a cup of tea!
Alison was always holding something back which made her a really intriguing character to read about and made me even more desperate to finally find out the truth of what happened on the day that changed the lives of the characters forever. (And massively influenced the lives of those around them.)
I went through a wide range of emotions when it came to Kitty. At first, being inside her head while she is frustrated when people can't understand her was amusing. For example, when she's trying to call the carer a cow! But as I learned more about her past, I started to feel that she was spoilt and that in fact she was still like this and hadn't changed after the accident. Towards the end though, I did begin to feel a little sorry for Kitty as she revealed more about her feelings towards Alison and the truth about the accident came out.
There were twists and curve balls all the way through, as well as little pieces of information dotted here and there which at the time seemed insignificant, but later on, had me leafing back to previous pages as I realised the importance of them and as the dots connected. Everything clicked into place perfectly.
The ending of the book was excellent and felt really well thought out. The twists continued right until the very last pages where just as I thought the whole truth had come out, the final revelation from Alison had me reconsidering everything all over again.
Overall, I'm giving Blood Sisters 5 out of 5 and adding it to my five star favourites shelf! It was utterly enthralling and packed with twists which kept me guessing right until the end.
