    3. 3 3.5 stars 99% of the books I read are strictly romance but sometimes I need a mystery thriller suspense to spice things up a bit and The Silent Sister seemed like a good choice Overall, I was left somewhat underwhelmed, but I had a blast unraveling this intricately woven mystery Riley s father has passed away and she returns to her childhood home to settle his affairs and the house She doesn t expect to uncover a boatload of family secrets, including the one that reveals the truth about her ol [...]

    4. This is the second book of this author that I finished and once again I am emotionally invested in the deftly plotted, immensely readable, and masterfully executed saga of a family in crisis.Perhaps the title could have been The Violin named Violet Mmms, a bit too much, but really, this violin in this tale had this mysterious story to tell Hi, my name is Violet, Violet MacPherson, the only member of this family, apart from Lisa who committed suicide at the age of sixteen, who knows what really h [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this book It kept me on the edge of my seat and some parts were def predictable but I still enjoyed the journey it took to get there The ending was rushed and the majority of the secrets and etc spilled out in the last 50 pages which wasn t enough time for me I would recommend this to anyone who s looking for a good mystery to read.

    6. Imagine everything you ve been told about you, your family, and your long lost sister are all lies Well, in Diane Chamberlain s The Silent Sister Riley MacPherson finds that the stories she s been told of her sister, believed to have committed suicide as a teenager, just may in fact be alive How s that for a huge family secret Riley is trying to clean out her father s home when a series of events lead her to believe that she may in fact want to investigate her past At the age of 25, all the peop [...]

    7. 4.5 stars I really enjoyed this book I have read all of Diane Chamberlain s books and was anxiously awaiting this one I was not disappointed I read it in a very short time which is unusual lately However, this book kept me interested I am excited for her next book

    8. Every time I finish a Diane Chamberlain book, I m reminded why she is at the top of my favorite authors list Her stories always have characters I love and care about, and the plot twists are amazing When I m reading her novels, I cruise through them, turning pages and finishing chapters faster than I normally do because I have to know what happens next to those characters I adore This makes for a great read you ll love to curl up with

    9. What an amazing book I really enjoyed this book I will definitely be looking into books from this author.

    10. I was lucky enough to win an ARC of this book through a Giveaway in exchange for an honest review I want to thank St Martin s Press for the gift.This novel was a real pleasant surprise for me I usually read thrillers, but I entered the Giveaway contest for this book as the plot looked interesting It wasn t long before I was pulled into the story and was totally engrossed thereafter I read the book in 4 days which is really fast for me I will not re summarize the plot, only to say that the author [...]

    11. The Silent Sister is a standalone novel written by author Diane Chamberlain This novel features two parallel storylines one that reveals a past family drama and one that shows how the present day family is dealing with slow discoveries related to it While reading this type of writing style, I usually have a favorite storyline, and the past was my favorite in this one But with both, I was caught up in the intrigue, the mystery, even some light suspense, and I experienced a great amount of emotion [...]

    12. 2.5 When Riley returns home to clear out her Father s house after his death, she finds everything she believed about her family was wrong.A story about secrets and the detrimental effect on a family This is not one of my favorites of Chamberlain novels Although at times the story was interesting I felt the plot was uneven At times over dramatic and the dialogue forced and stilted Usually this author does a good job writing women s fiction, aptly straddling the line between wringing excess emotio [...]

    13. After the death of her father, Riley MacPherson returns to her childhood home While clearing out her father s possessions she finds out than she bargained for about her father and also the sister who she barely remembers Lisa was 17 when newspapers reported her death and Riley 2 so it is hardly surprising Riley doesn t remember her, especially when there seems to be so much mystery surrounding Lisa s apparent suicide But could there be to the story There certainly is Some families are good at [...]

    14. Perhaps not my favorite Chamberlain, but another solid and enjoyable read by who I think is one of today s better story tellers I am always able to connect with most of her characters, as they are real people In this case Riley could be anyone I know.until her father dies and she comes to discover that her life is full of secrets and lies Chamberlain tells this story through two voices The present voice is Riley as she tries to discover if anything she grew up believing is true The back story co [...]

    15. Initial reaction Um, holy crud This was good I m trying to decide on a final rating between 4 and 4.5 stars, but as per usual, Chamberlain really immersed me into the plight of the characters and overarching story I couldn t put this book down, and I m really glad I had the chance to read it as a galley.Full review The Silent Sister was yet another book of Diane Chamberlain s that engaged me from beginning to end By that I mean it kept me guessing for events for a good part of the narrative One [...]

    16. The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain is a 2014 St Martin s Press publication I have enjoyed every book I ve read by Diane Chamberlain, but this is one of those I missed along the way I recently saw Buzzfeed s list of the top most suspenseful books and this one was pretty far up on the list So, I immediately went in search of a copy Once my Overdrive library account proves invaluable Years ago, Lisa, a young musical prodigy with a bright future ahead of her, disappeared and is presumed dead, a [...]

    17. Riley MacPherson has lost her entire family in one form or another she heads back to New Bern, NC to wrap up things after her father s death She discovers a shocking secret, things aren t always as they appear in her family, and her sister who committed suicide 20 years ago comes back into playCan t say too much without giving away the book I will say Diane Chamberlain s writing always leaves me wanting , and I flew through this book because once again I HAD to know what was going to happen She [...]

    18. Once again, fortunately, I began reading this book without remembering much about the blurb Just something about a dead sister I may do this on purpose from now on, especially when it comes to mystery thrillers, and wait until I ve forgotten all but a vague idea about the plot and a once felt strong desire to read the book in question I really enjoyed this mysterious family drama There are twists and turns at every step view spoiler I guessed about the secret pregnancy but somehow I didn t think [...]

    19. Tenho gostado de todos os livros que tenho lido desta autora Pelas reviravoltas que as hist rias d o, pela riqueza das suas personagens E este n o foi excep o Apenas achei o final cor de rosa demais, depois de tudo o que aconteceu, mas tal n o me impediu de ter gostado muito deste livro Recomendo sem duvida

    20. Three childrend then there were two All was hush, hush about how that happened, and Riley didn t find out why until after both her parents had passed away.As Riley was cleaning out her parents home, talking to different neighbors, and talking to folks her father had left things to in his will, she had her share of surprises and shocking revelationsE SILENT SISTER has twists that keep you turning the pages as you learn of secrets that had been kept for years and secrets that only a few folks knew [...]

    21. When Riley MacPherson returns home to New Bern, North Carolina following her father s death, she discovers information among his belongings that unveils a lifetime of secrets.I found this to be an interesting story with an underlying message about the cost of withholding secrets from family for their sake The toll it took on Riley s self perception and her damaged brother, Danny, was immeasurable I thought it was an apt illustration of good intentions gone awry.I liked the story though I figured [...]

    22. Wow, this book was an amazing combination of family drama and mystery that kept the twists and turns coming with every chapter 25 year old Riley returns home after her father s death to settle his estate and starts finding pieces of his life that just don t fit in She always knew that she had a much older sister who killed herself when she was a baby, but as neighbors let pieces of information slip, and Riley uncovers clues within the house, she discovers that may not be what happened at all, an [...]

    23. Spoiler Alert This book was touted as a mystery, and while it did have some mystery to it, it wasn t quite up to what it was made out to be I did enjoy the characters I did want to get to the end and find out what happened However, there were some very irritating aspects to this book It seemed very contradictory, first Riley wants everything out of her father s house and when she is pushed into doing that, she hates every aspect of what the ppl she hired are doing, namely going through years of [...]

    24. 3 out of 5 stars Everyone has a scar Riley MacPherson returns to her childhood home to clear out the house and settle the estate of her recently deceased father Her brother, Danny, injured in Iraq and living in a trailer on the fringe of the RV park the family owns, refuses to help her He s embittered and angry because of the fallout from their sister s suicide when he and Riley were children and he never got over it All Riley wants to do is have a relationship with her brother now that the two [...]

    25. This book left me completely satisfied I fell in love with the story in the first sentence and it held my attention throughout The storyline was incredible How the author thought of some of the scenes is beyond me Some parts of the plot were so surprising that I just had to shake my head The story is essentially and I m not one to repeat the book summary that s been done about a dysfunctional family that has not grown past the trauma of losing the eldest sister, Lisa, to suicide many years ago R [...]

    26. Riley goes back home after her father s death to clear out his house While there, she gets sucked into the secret past of their family She discovers that her sister Lisa did not commit suicide as her parents told her, but had escaped a murder trial with the help of their father The story starts off with a lot of suspense and interest but fizzles out in the middle The end is a disaster, leaving practically every question unresolved Lisa s story could have been intriguing, but I found the woman re [...]

    27. Within the first few pages of The Silent Sister, secrets and questions start to emerge The suspense builds and rarely lets up in the page turner.What was Jeannie s relationship with Riley s father, and why is she so eager to remove certain items from the house Who is Fred Marcus, and what is his connection to Frank Why did Riley s father include one of the trailer park tenants in his will, and why was he writing the guy monthly checks Who can be trusted And the biggest question of all What reall [...]

    28. N o pensei que me sentisse cada vez mais cativado medida que explodia este cartucho A primeira p gina foi como o man que me colou de imediato e me deixou logo intrigado Uma assassina violonista prod gio que se suicidou As palavras flu ram a partir deste ponto, numa corrente transparente, sem quebras, libertando um ru do confortante e ao mesmo tempo misterioso, passando pelos cantos escuros onde se escondiam segredos familiares.O que aconteceu irm da Riley e do Danny quando estes tinham respetiva [...]

    29. has a lot going on for 350 pages, most of which is detail masquerading as substance Let s explore.The core of the novel is promising Riley our protagonist is cleaning out the home of her late father and discovers evidence that her sister, who everyone thinks committed suicide, might be alive She embarks on a journey to discover her family s past.That tidy little nugget of synopsis is stretched to a degree of agonizing attenuation over the course of the novel The reader is forced to wade through [...]

    30. It was an engaging and interesting read but felt a bit flat towards the end I know you can guess the plot sometimes but I sort of wish the author had made it a bit harder for me to realise how this one was going to end kinda predictable.I have read a few books by this author and they can be quite intense This one fell short a little bit Still and all, a good enough read.I would be interested in reading a story about her brother.
