Two women. Two versions of the truth.

Kitty lives in a care home. She can't speak properly, and she has no memory of the accident that put her here. At least that's the story she's sticking to.

Art teacher Alison looks fine on the surface. But the surface is a lie. When a job in a prison comes up she decides to take it - this is her chance to finally make things right.

But someone is watching Kitty and Alison.
Someone who wants revenge for what happened that sunny morning in May. 
And only another life will do...

If only I could give this book more than 5 stars, its amazing! I am in shock and reeling at how the story panned out, and I didn't guess any of it. Was completely bamboozled with the twist and turns and I couldn't be happier about being fooled. 

Even from the first few pages I was hooked, I was finding both Kitty and Alison's stories incredibly interesting in the present day, before you even take into account their pasts and just what exactly happened that caused their current situations. 

It is clear a huge amount of research must have gone into the writing of this book. Kitty lives in a care home, and although her mind seems quite sharp and she has normal thoughts. However due to a brain injury everything comes out as a babble and she struggles to make herself understood. She also has no knowledge of why she is in the home in the first place. 

Then there is Alison who is an art teacher, and she can't resist taking a job in a mens open prison as an artist in residence. She is terrified but needs the money.

I was fascinated by the prison that Alison was working in, as well as just how Kitty was cared for and everything to do with Kitty's storyline.  In fact I was enjoying the early part of the book so much I was annoyed that I needed to watch a theatre show....which leads me to give you one piece of advice, read this book when you have a window of time uninterrupted. It will draw you in and just won't let you go.  

The book is so well written, there isn't a boring moment, everything has its reasons for being part of the story, and I loved seeing how things advanced. I can't express just how much I loved this book and just how skilled I think this author is.  Nothing I can say will do Blood Sisters justice, I would just recommend that if you like addictive, gripping stories that you take a close look at Blood Sisters. 

Thank you so much to Annie Lyons at Penguin for this copy of Blood Sisters, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
