From the bestselling author of My Husband's Wife, a new thriller featuring three girls, one accident, and a lifetime of lies.

Three little girls set off to school one sunny morning. Within an hour, one of them is dead.

Fifteen years later, Kitty can't speak and has no memory of the accident that's to blame. She lives in an institution, unlikely ever to leave. But that doesn't keep her from being frightened when she encounters an eerily familiar face.

Art teacher Alison looks fine on the surface. But the surface is a lie. She's struggling to make ends meet and to forget the past. When a teaching job at a prison opens up, she takes it, despite her fears. Maybe this is her chance to set things right. Then she starts to receive alarming notes; next, her classroom erupts in violence.

Meanwhile, someone is watching both Kitty and Alison. Someone who never forgot what happened that day. Someone who wants revenge. And only another life will do. . .


Advance Galley Reviews

Well, I have stayed up past my bedtime again because of an unputdownable book. My favorite genre is thriller, and Blood Sisters delivers much suspense and plenty of thrills. The book description is chilling. "Three little girls set off to school one sunny morning. Within an hour, one of them is dead." It's such a sad story. A straight forward event of a car being driven too fast on a school route. Except nothing is ever that simple is it? Jane Corry delivers characters we would all know in our lives. Except some of those characters are liars. Or evil. The twists that are behind this life changing accident turn the book into a guessing game of wondering how many lies are hidden behind the facades of our social faces. Anyone who enjoys psychological thrillers needs to read this book. Read Jane Corry's debut novel if you haven't read it already. And look for more novels to be released because Jane Corry is a sleep robber who is worth the investment.

**Thanks to FirstToRead for providing a complimentary copy of BLOOD SISTERS in exchange for my honest review.** Three girls cross the street. Vanessa dies, Kitty is permanently disabled and Alison appears fine. Fifteen years later Alison leads a mostly solitary life. Kitty, who resides in a facility, lives in her head, unable to speak. Their worlds are about to collide again, when the truth finally emerges about what really happened the morning of the accident. Jane Corry peaked my curiosity from the beginning of the story. I could feel Alison’s personal burden in her narration of the her point of view chapters. Her emotional distance from everyone in her life kept me from fully rooting for her. Although I didn’t trust her, I wanted a positive outcome. Kitty was simply horrid. I had difficulty feeling any empathy for her, despite her physical limitations. BLOOD SISTERS can best be described as a slow burn. I wasn’t sure where the story was headed until well into the second part. Corry’s writing was engaging enough to keep my turning pages until I saw the resolutions. The story had so many twists and turns and they all made sense to the plot. If you like mysteries that keep you guessing, add BLOOD SISTERS to your TBR list.
