Can't wait to listen to the other two.

This is the first time I have listened to a book by this author. I couldn't wait to get back into my car to listen to this book. I make a living by driving and I listened to audio books. I really enjoyed it. To me there was never a dull or slow moment in this book.

Tragedy upon tragedy

This story dragged on and on. At one point, I looked at how much time was left because I was so weary of it. It started out with a good plot, but there was so much filler in between it got old. And then the author piled on tragedy after tragedy. Too much questioning going on in the minds of the characters. It just gets old. It was a predictable template changing some of the circumstances.

Stena Nielsen is usually one of the better narrators, but this manuscript called for some intense emotions and she’s very flat during these times. I wish she would’ve put more effort into it.

I would like to finish the series, but I’m afraid the other two books would be too similar.

Great story!

A Sister's Secret kept me captivated from the beginning right to the last second! Great plot and storyline. I did feel it ended rather quickly and the main problem was resolved within the last 3 minutes.

The narrator did an excellent job! Only issue I had was the chapters are not lined up properly. There are over 40 chapters but only 18 show up in the chapters section. So multiple chapters take place for each section...which made it hard for me to find my place when I fell asleep one night and needed to figure out where I left off the night before.
