I’m pleased to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for superb psychological thriller The Stolen Sisters by Louise Jensen. Thank you to HQ for the invitation and for providing me with a copy of this book to read and review.
About the book:
Sisterhood binds them. Trauma defines them. Will secrets tear them apart?
Leah’s perfect marriage isn’t what it seems but the biggest lie of all is that she’s learned to live with what happened all those years ago. Marie drinks a bit too much to help her forget. And Carly has never forgiven herself for not keeping them safe.
Twenty years ago The Sinclair Sisters were taken. But what came after their return was far worse. Can a family ever recover, especially when not everyone is telling the truth…?
About the author:
Louise Jensen has sold over a million English language copies of her International No. 1 psychological thrillers The Sister, The Gift, The Surrogate, The Date and The Family. Her novels have also been translated into twenty-five languages, as well as featuring on the USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestseller’s List. Louise’s sixth thriller, The Stolen Sisters, will be published in Autumn 2020 by Harper Collins.

Louise also has a penchant for exploring the intricacies of relationships through writing heart-breaking, high-concept love stories under the pen name Amelia Henley. Her romantic debut, ‘The Life We Almost Had’ is out now.
Louise lives with her husband, children, madcap dog and a rather naughty cat in Northamptonshire. She loves to hear from readers and writers.
The Stolen Sisters by Louise Jensen is one of those books that’s incredibly difficult to review without giving away any spoilers. Told from multiple points of view, it tells the tale of three sisters who were kidnapped and held captive when they were children. Twenty years later and Carly, Leah and Marie are still trying to come to terms with the consequences of what happened to them all those years ago.
Louise Jensen’s writing is superb as she takes the reader on a rollercoaster of a journey that cleverly pulls the strands of the story together piece by piece. The narrative moves between then and now, the story moving along at a cracking pace as the multiple character voices bring the tale vividly to life, making for a compelling read that once started I did not want to put down!
The Stolen Sisters is a multilayered, atmospheric psychological thriller with a lot of heart. I became fully immersed in the story of the Sinclair sisters and what had happened to them, the story going in directions I never would have expected it to when I started it. The short, punchy chapters propel the narrative forward, the tension becoming almost unbearably palpable as the twists and turns race towards an ending I did not see coming.
I don’t think any review I write could ever do this wonderful book justice. I love Louise Jensen’s writing and she has proved yet again why I consider her to be an author at the very top of her game. The Stolen Sisters is a superbly written, intricately plotted psychological thriller that I would highly recommend.
