THE FAVORITE SISTER – Jessica Knoll (Releasing May 15th, 2018)
Check back for the #allthebookreviews thoughts on this one.
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
Normally I try to avoid reading reviews before starting a book, especially one that has so much buzz around it. Going into this one, you should know that it isn’t a thriller. This is more of a drama with some mystery thrown into it! Something I’m very happy I knew before starting because there’s nothing that can ruin a reading experience like having incorrect expectations! THE FAVORITE SISTER by Jessica Knoll exams the world of reality TV and the characters that we all secretly love and hate.
Let’s meet the cast!
Brett is the favorite – she’s 27 and incredibly successful thanks to her spin studio. Kelly is Brett’s older sister and business partner isn’t taken seriously by the other cast members (just holding on to little sister’s success). Stephanie is a bestselling author of erotica novels, and there are plenty of rumors circulating around her personal life. Lauren is trying to make her comeback after her drinking got out of control, and finally, we have Jen. Jen has made her living and success from her popular vegan food line.
When you have five incredibly successful women together, tempers will flare, drama can ensue, but they weren’t expecting the season to end in murder. The mystery element comes into play here, but I would definitely say the overall genre is a drama. This is also a character study and Knoll dives into the minds of these successful women and what makes them tick. I don’t want to go into too much more detail with the mystery or the twists, just to completely avoid spoilers!
Overall, if you’re wanting a good drama with some murder, then this will be the story for you! Remember, this isn’t a thriller, so if you go into it expecting one, you’ll probably leave a little disappointed. There’s no denying that Jessica Knoll knows how to write and develop unique and intriguing characters. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
