The Half Sister by Sandie Jones

I haven’t read a thriller in a while, so I jumped at the chance to review Sandie Jones’s latest novel, The Half Sister. The First Mistake, Jones’s second novel, was my favorite out of the thrillers I read last year, so I had high hopes for this. But, alas, out of all her books, The […]
