Book Review | Little Sister by Gytha Lodge | prettylittlewriter

This has been one of my favourite Gytha novels so far! She never ceases to amaze me with her brilliant ideas!

‘Detective Jonah Sheens is enjoying a moment of peace and quiet, when a teenage girl wanders out of the wood.
She's striking, with flame-red hair and a pale complexion.
She's also covered in blood.
She insists she's fine. It's her sister he needs to worry about.
Jonah quickly discovers that Keely and her sister, Nina, disappeared from a children's home a week ago. Now, Keely is here - but Nina's still missing.
Keely likes to play games. She knows where her sister is - but before she tells, she wants Jonah's full attention.
Is she killer, witness, or victim? And will Jonah find out what Keely's hiding, in time to save Nina?’

This is a story about two teenage sisters with beautiful red hair and a past that will horrify you.

One moment you think Keely is the spawn of the devil, the next you are questioning everyone and everything. There are so many twists and turns that you really are kept guessing until the very end.

I was so hooked that it only took me a couple of evenings to read as I just didn’t want to put it down!

The only think I would have liked to see more of is the relationship between Ben and Juliette, as I’m dying for them to get together, but other than that I cannot fault this novel at all!

I’m not going to do a really in-depth review as I don’t want to spoil the story for anyone, but it was absolutely brilliant and there were some great reveals that I did not expect!

So grateful to Netgalley and Penguin Michael Joseph for allowing me to read early to review!

5/5 stars
