I’m delighted to welcome you today to my publication day stop on the blog tour for gripping psychological thriller The Liar’s Sister by Sarah A. Denzil. My thanks as always to Noelle Holten for the invitation and to Bookouture for giving me the opportunity to read and review this wonderful book.
About the book:
A SHOCKING DISAPPEARANCE. A VILLAGE FULL OF SECRETS.
Ten years ago, a boy named Samuel Murray went missing from the quiet village of Buckthorpe and was never seen again.
Rosie Sharpe cried over her missing friend for weeks after.
But her little sister Heather knows that Rosie’s tears hide the truth.
Because the night Samuel was last seen, Heather watched her older sister climbing back through the window of their childhood bedroom. Her jacket torn, her eyes wild and her body trembling with fear.
Heather never told anyone what she saw, but secrets can’t stay buried forever…
A decade later, Rosie and Heather return to the home they grew up in when their mother falls ill. But when their house is ransacked and they receive a threatening note, it becomes clear that someone in the close-knit village doesn’t want them there.
When Heather finally confronts her sister about what really happened on the dark, rainy night Samuel vanished, Rosie’s version of the truth is more shocking than she could ever have imagined. But can she trust her sister? And who broke into their house that night? As the lies of the past begin to unravel, they have the power to put the lives of both women in terrible danger…
This twist-filled, page-turning psychological thriller from the million-copy-bestselling author of Silent Child will keep you hooked until the final, jaw-dropping pages. Perfect for fans of Behind Closed Doors and The Girl on the Train.

The Liar’s Sister by Sarah A. Denzil is a psychological thriller that’s full of family secrets and lies. There are twists and turns throughout and once started you will not want to put this superb thriller down until the final page has been turned.
The book starts with a letter: a letter from Heather to her big sister, Rosie. But it’s a letter Heather never has any intention of sending as she hasn’t seen her sister since their father’s funeral five years ago and has no idea where she is.
But now their mother is terminally ill and has asked to see Rosie, so Heather has no other choice than to try to contact her sister and ask her to come home. But the last thing Heather wants is for Rosie to come home. She is convinced that a decade earlier Rosie killed their neighbour, sixteen year old Samuel Murray who went missing and was never seen again. You see, Heather saw something that night that can’t be explained. And now that Rosie is back, she wants answers…
The story is told from the points of view of the two sisters, both in the past and in the present. As the long hidden story slowly unfolds, Heather and Rosie soon come to realise that someone doesn’t want them there. But who? And does this have anything to do with what happened to Samuel all those years ago? As the lies of the past begin to unravel, the tension builds to breaking point as the sisters begin to fear for their lives. But are they able to trust each other? And is Rosie telling Heather the truth? Or is the truth even more shocking than Heather could ever have imagined?
The Liar’s Sister will keep you guessing right up until the final page has been turned, which is the kind of book I love. It’s an exhilarating read that takes you on a rollercoaster of a journey that is as exciting as it is thrilling, with twists and turns to keep you on your toes throughout.
Sarah A. Denzil has written a superb psychological thriller that I would highly recommend.
