Adele French lost her sister, Celia, fifteen years ago, and she’s never stopped looking for answers or someone to blame.
Now, human remains have been found near the home Celia once shared with her husband, Albert.
Adele thinks she can finally put her sister to rest. Not to mention the ugly lies that Albert fabricated about Celia after she disappeared. She’s determined to uncover the truth about that night, and see justice served at last.
But Adele told some lies, too, back then.
And if you dig for secrets in dark places, you can’t always control what comes to light.

Another great psychological family thriller from this author, this book keeps you perpetually guessing. The emotionally crippled, dysfunctional family the three sisters were raised within, has created damaged (and pretty unlikeable) adults. But for all their failings, the author has managed to engender feelings of empathy for them at different times throughout the story. The characters revolving around the sisters are well drawn and believable. The complications in the plots, the forward and backward time sequences of the story, make for a gripping read. I was really looking forward to this next novel by S. MCEWEN and was definitely not disappointed. Thoroughly recommend "Sister in Trouble".
Another dark, complex, gripping family drama, with so many twists and turns. I didn't see the end coming!
The author has crafted a plot that is full of family drama, hidden secrets and intrigue which pulls you in right from the get go. The author takes you along for the ride and she transports you into it’s world, which you can’t escape from until its final page.
I really enjoyed how the book was structured and how it moves from past to present and told from different points of view.
There are a few twists and turns in the plot but it is woven together so skillfully and organically I didn't feel like the plot hinged on finding out the secrets. Everything is so beautifully described and the writing is so natural.
This is the first book of the authors I have read and I was completely blown away by it. I was immediately taken in by her emotive and vivid writing, that takes you wholeheartedly into the story and has you feeling every part of it. A fantastic storyteller, I am so pleased to have been introduced to her work and I look forward to more books in the future
