Cherry Pie : Rosamund Lupton: Sister

Rosamund Lupton: Sister

I think the reason I picked up this book was because I had seen it around the blog'osphere and lots of bloggers had raved about it. I can see why. While it's not my usual chick lit, it was extremely gripping. I even ended up taking it to work with me and reading in my lunch breaks.

With out trying to give too much away, I'll give you a brief synopsis of the story.

Beatrice is a professional type, working in America and living with her fiance, until she gets a call telling her that her arty type sister, Tess, has gone missing. Jumping on the first plane to the UK, Beatrice and her family get the devastating news that Tess has been found dead, and Beatrice takes it upon herself to solve the mystery of her death.

The book reads like a letter from Beatrice to Tess, documenting the journey that Beatrice has taken in order to solve the mystery of Tess' death. I always love a book like this as it really helps to get to know the characters and I really enjoyed seeing Beatrice's character change through-out the story.

The story is a good old mystery that you can really get your teeth into and we follow Beatrice as she picks up clues, interrogates the people closest to her and her sister and get's closer to the answer she's looking for. It's a book that pulls you in so tight that you're practically shouting at the characters for them to believe Beatrice's theories. It's an emotional and touching story from one sister to another, ending up in dangerous consequences and a shocking twist!

I loved this book so much that I've now moved on to Rosamund Lupton's next publication, 'Afterwards', which I'm sure I will review in the future!


  1. Thanks for your sweet sweet comment :)

    xx love

  2. I seriously don't read that many books, but a good book or two and im glued, i love reading. Thanks for sharing this cause this is the first time to hear about it and it sounds interesting!

  3. I'd never heard of this book before, but it sounds interesting. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if that ever happens to me... being the "artsy sister" who (because I've always wanted to live there) gets killed in the UK whilst my sensible sister (who does live in the US) goes and finds out what happens. That'd be the day... Eck.

  4. oooh im gonna check this out x

  5. I read this book, and I absolutely loved it. It completely drew me in too. And the twist! Oh my god!
    Sirens and Bells xx

  6. I read this post and today saw the book in a charity shop - I was like OMG must buy!

    I'm looking forward to reading it and finding out what this famous twist is - thanks for not revealing it, I hate it when people do that!

  7. thanks for your comment! I loved this book too! I even got my boyfriend (who never reads) to read it and he loved it as well x

  8. Sister had a laundry list of murder suspects and an even longer list of why people would have wanted to see Tess dead. All the characters seemed real and I was rooting Bee on the whole time, whether she was tracking down the killer or giving her statement.
