New Captivating Novel by Emilie Richards Coming 6/25/19!
The Family of Strangers is a thought-provoking novel, with complex characters, toxic family dynamics, and a compelling plot.
The Gracey sisters, Ryan and Wendy, were almost like strangers to one another. In fact, Ryan had very few memories of her sister. Wendy had been away most of the time in college when Ryan was a toddler. And, although Ryan’s parents loved her, Ryan always felt second best to their golden child, Wendy.
After leaving the house to live on her own, Ryan rarely heard from her sister. She was content, though, even without close family connections. Ryan was more than surprised when Wendy contacted her, asking for help. And, although, the sisters had never been close, Ryan packed up her things, moved into Wendy’s home, and cared for her two nieces. But when days turned into weeks without Wendy’s return, Ryan became suspicious. Ryan was sure that her sister was lying to her. So Ryan, along with two friends, began an investigation.
A Family of Strangers is an enjoyable read. There are several surprises in this mystery. The pace, however, slows the story down at times.
Thank you, Mira Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
