of unnecessary storylines.It was a book with great potential but only mildly satisfying with an all too neat ending.I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley NetGalley TheHalfSister Nope

story s development, I truly lose my interest That s exactly happened during my reading The story told by Kate and Lauren, two sisters, polar opposites, envying each other s lives Kate is successful reporter, climbing her career ladder faster, having a lovely husband Matt but she wants to have a baby, trying too hard, exhausted from IVF treatment process She wants to have a family And Lauren is married, with lovely children, exhausted to turn into a stay at home mom and dealing with mood swings, mental abuse of her husband Simon She wants a career, freedom and she misses her old love for 20 years Their Sunday family gathering with her mother Rose who was still grieving because of their father s sudden decease turned into bitter, cold, weird interactions Nobody can stand with each other And one day, a young woman named Jess knocks their door and demands to see her father Henry She tells them she is their half sister Yes, everything couldn t be get better, could be Later we found out Lauren brought Jess into their lives because she was always doubtful about her father s sincerity and thought he might have been having an affair behind their mother s back They found each other from DNA match side Yes THAT S THE PART THIS BOOK STARTED TO FAIL The idea of finding your sister by DNA match website didn t make sense to me the same so called sister has no idea about her biological past because she is adopted and as far as I know because of carrying XX chromosomes, for getting accurate result about DNA, you need mother s DNA Lauren also needed a confidante because she was estrangedwith her family members after her father s dying She wanted her family back Her intentions were sincere At least what she tells to herself which I don t buy But Jess has no intention to stop till she finds her biological mother and the facts about secret relationship with her father which will ruin everything in sisters lives and make them question everything they know about their own childhood as they see their entire family life consisted of lies and secrets I liked the intriguing pacing and moving chapters, fast building tension but there are things absolutely irritated me I m not genealogy expert but Lauren and Jess way of finding each other on DNA website didn t work with me.I couldn t connect with any of the characters and I couldn t relate with their pain, suffer and motives They were so annoying, flat, dull characters The ending was also twisty but a little foreseeable and mediocre Overall It was still fast pacing, quick and easy read I didn t get bored and but unlikable characterization and big plot holes of the story and predictable revelation disappointed me So I m giving 2.5 stars to round up to 3 This turned into I didn t love it but I didn t truly hate it Switzerland books I still enjoy the author s writing style and I loved her previous works But this one failed me just a little because she s great writer and I expectedfrom her.Special thanks to
