My Sister is Missing by Carissa Ann Lynch #review #thriller


Reminiscent of Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects” Christina Kaye, award-winning author of Presumed Dead

A twenty-year-old local mystery that has never been solved.

A bone-chilling VHS tape depicting a horrific crime.

Neighbors with something to hide.

And a sister who is missing.

Emily has to find out the truth. But is her sister Madeline the victim…or the one to blame?

A creepy and chilling thriller that you won’t be able to put down. MY SISTER IS MISSING is the most grippingread of 2019. 

Readers can’t get enough of this book:

‘An unnerving, creepy, hair-raising novel, one that will have readers sleeping with one eye open’ David Bell, USA Today bestselling author of LAYOVER

‘Lynch has a knack for storytelling that not only captivates, but leaves one aching for the next page’ Bradon Nave, USA Today bestselling author

‘A craftsman of the novel world. This book is a fine example of why reading is the perfect form of escapism. Edge of your seat thriller action’ 5* Karen Whittard, Netgalley

‘Had me on the edge of my seat’ 5* Tracy Cavanah, Netgalley 

‘The most gripping novel with the perfect amount of mystery and thrill…the ending is great!’ 5* Cloud of Thoughts Blog

‘A well-written, fast-paced thriller that is packed full of twists and turns, mystery and suspense. I was hooked from the very first page … Worth far more than five stars Nicki’s Life of Crime Blog

‘Takes a heavily used plot line and puts a fresh spin on it’ Rosemary Smith, Netgalley

‘Gritty, engrossing, and impossible to put down it will haunt you for a long time after the last page is turned’ Ellie Midwood, international bestselling author of the Indigo Rebels series. 

‘The thriller of 2019!’ – Chelsi Davis, author of Domestic Disturbance


Emily’s sister Madeline has asked Emily to return home. These two sisters have not been on the best of terms lately. Emily has not even met Madeline’s children. But they are sisters, so Emily returns to her family home and the mystery surrounding her accident.

Emily and Madeline have a nice catch up session on Emily’s first night home. But, when Emily wakes up the next morning, Madeline is no where to be found. She thinks Madeline just went to the store. When Madeline stays gone for over 24 hours Emily becomes obsessed with finding her.

I really don’t know what I think about Emily. I started out not liking her very much. But she becomes a better person as the tale moves along. And move along it does! Just when I had it figured out the story twisted, NOT ONCE BUT SEVERAL TIMES. Emily’s past accident, Paul, Emily’s ex-boyfriend, is the cop assigned to the case, a cryptic message for Madeline, a VHS tape, all lead to a gripping conclusion.

This is a lightening fast read. This would be a great book for traveling. And for $2.99, I would snatch this up! It is captivating, suspenseful and very engaging. There were places I forgot to breathe!

I received this novel from Harper Impulse and Killer Reads via Netgalley for a honest review.
