Book Summary

When Eleanor Hardwicke’s beloved father dies, her world is further shattered by a gut-wrenching secret: the man she’s grieving isn’t really her dad. Eleanor was the product of an affair and her biological father is still out there, living blissfully with the family he chose. With her personal life spiraling, a desperate Eleanor seeks him out, leading her to uncover another branch on her family tree—an infuriatingly enviable half sister.

Perfectly perfect Victoria has everything Eleanor could ever dream of. Loving childhood, luxury home, devoted husband. All of it stolen from Eleanor, who plans to take it back. After all, good sisters are supposed to share. And quiet little Eleanor has been waiting far too long for her turn to play.

    After reading The Neighbors last month, I read this book side eyeing everything. My mind kept churning and I had to force myself to try and not figure it out because when it comes this author’s books, you NEVER know what’s going to happen!

    The beginning of this book is incredibly sad and had me missing my father and all his dad jokes. “What do elves learn in school? The elfa-bet.” “What do you call Santa when he takes a break? Santa Pause.” tee hee.

    I felt a lot of Eleanor and everything she was going through but I was also highly frustrated with her throughout most of the book. It took a while for the foundation to get laid with this one and then we get the BOOM in the last few chapters. I don’t know why but I did NOT see that coming. All these little peeks led to an eye opening revelation and personally, I was here for it.

    I think some people will have issue with her character but gimme all the characters to hate when it’s done so humanly. And that ending… well, let me tell you, I’m one of those readers that love to be surprised and not have it be all tied up nicely in a bow. Crazy Lifetime movie type of read… GIVE IT TO ME. This book just brings out the natural craziness that’s inside of us ALL … and if you’re gonna deny THAT, then you just haven’t tapped into yours yet… but don’t worry, you will. 😉

    Hannah Mary McKinnon’s Sister Dear is a slow paced, jaw-dropping thriller that is bound to satisfy psychosocial thriller lovers. After Eleanor Hardwicke’s father passes away and she learns that he wasn’t her biological father and so she sets out to find out who her biological father is and to find out why she never knew this secret. Eleanor finds out that her biological father has another family including a daughter and she quickly becomes obsessed with finding out everything she can about her half-sister Victoria.

    McKinnon has written Eleanor in such a way that the reader feels sorry for her. Eleanor is a self-conscious woman who has been told her whole life that she isn’t good enough from her sister and mother. The only light she has in her life is her father and when he passes away, Eleanor finds it harder than ever to be motivated to do things in her life. As the story progresses the reader will see Eleanor transform from this low self-esteem, pushover to blossoming into a confident, glowing woman who gets what she wants.

    McKinnon began Sister Dear with a slower pace which set up the plot for the story. While it personally took me a little while to get into the story, I was enthralled with what was unfolding and wanted to know what was going to happen next. McKinnon unveils all of her twists flawlessly and leaves the reader wondering how they weren’t able to guess what was going to happen next. I don’t want to give anything away so all I’ll say is that the ending to Sister Dear has got to be my favourite ending since reading Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn.
