The Good Sister by Diana Diamond

I can not gush enough about Diana Diamond's novels. They are always so suspenseful and keep me on the edge of my seat, and The Good Sister is not any different. There is no way I can rate this anything other than A.

From Amazon:
One is sugar, the other spice...To the world, the privileged Pegan sisters are the ideal complement to each other: one sweet-tempered and reserved; the other vibrant and willful. Together they both are determined to lead their global communications empire into daring new territory. As brilliant Jennifer engineers the launch of the world's first private satellite into outer space, glamorous Catherine is drawn to the limelight of Hollywood's movie industry. Each is in her element-and each has captured the attention of two enigmatic men.But which conceals a soul of ice?Nobody would ever guess that behind one sister's charming facade lies the bitter resentment born of years of living in her sibling's shadow. Nobody would suspect that soon jealousy will turn to vengeance-and vengeance to murderous rage. Nobody would dream that the woman who possesses everything wants only what her sister has and is bent on evening the score once and for all. But which one is the good sister?

This is such a wonderful suspense novel and the psychological twists are really chilling. Throughout the book, I was back and forth trying to decide who "The Good Sister" really is. The reader gets inside the mind of the bad one without knowing if it is Catherine or Jennifer. The author gives the reader some clues but also a lot of red herrings that really keep you guessing. I absolutely love her books, and can not stress enough what a great book Diana Diamond writes. I urge everyone to go to their local library or bookstore to pick up one of her books. I try to space out her books so that I have some to read as I am not sure if she is still writing. I loved this book and that is all I can really say about it.

I am not sure what I am going to read next. I still have five library books to read so I will just grab one of those. I start teaching on Monday and I am sure I will be nervous tomorrow, so I need a good book to keep me distracted. I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend and is getting a lot of good reading in. Happy Reading!

I have this one in my TBR. I've tried picking it up a couple of times, but wasn't able to get into it. I'll try again. Great review.

Good luck with the job today!

Thanks for the well wishes. The first day went pretty well.

I really love his books. (I know it is a male author, but I have a hard time remembering that, lol.)
