Publisher Description

I turn to where I left my baby in his pushchair and pull up short. With a racing heart, I look around wildly, fear gripping my stomach. I only looked away for a moment. The pushchair and my baby are gone. 

Kelly is taking her twin daughters to their first day of school, ushering them into the classroom, her heart breaking to think they might not need her any more, when she turns around and sees that her newborn baby is gone.

As a desperate search ensues, baby Noah is quickly found – parked in front of a different classroom. But when Kelly reaches forward to comfort him, she finds something tucked in the side of his blanket. A locket that belonged to her sister Freya. A locket Kelly hasn’t seen since the day Freya died.

And then Kelly’s perfectly-ordered life begins to unravel…

We Were Sisters is a heart-pounding suspense thriller that will grip you until the very last page. Fans of Behind Closed Doors, Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train won’t be able to stop reading this incredible book.

A good book for a good price

I didn’t predict the ending entirely correctly, which was cool. I liked the clearly labeled then/now chapters. I’ll read more of her books when I’m looking for suspenseful but easy reads.

This was my first book by Wendy Clarke and she surely did not disappoint. This book had a world wind of emotions in it for me. I really connected with all the characters and laughed and cried with them. I can’t say enough good things about this book.

This book was about a sisters bond that couldn’t be broken even through all the lies and deception that took place in the past. They were two souls bonded through tragedy and heartache.

I want to start off by saying that the characters really made this book. I was able to identify with Kelly and all her anxiety and OCD issues that she had in her life because of trying to deal with her past trauma. I also liked in the end that Kelly overcame some of these issues and started to forgive the people that caused her all this heartache over the years. I also liked the other sister Freya. The author wrote her as a character who you wanted to hate but also felt bad for her in the end. You just never knew if she could really be trusted or if her motives were pure. These sisters had a bond like no other and it truly showed in the end. This book had so many twists you never knew what was coming next. I couldn’t wait to get to the next chapter to find out what happened next. I just couldn’t get enough of this book and stayed up all night reading. I absolutely loved this book.

Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Rapid ending

It just moved a little slow in the first 2/3’s. Maybe it’s just me. Other reviewers loved it. I didn’t but I will give another one of her books a read.
