The Better Sister: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Date: April 2019

Duration: 9 hours 25 minutes


From Alafair Burke—New York Times bestselling author of the runaway hit, The Wife—comes another twisty tale of domestic noir. When a prominent Manhattan lawyer is murdered, two estranged sisters—one the dead man’s widow, the other his ex—must set aside mistrust and old resentments . . . but can they escape their past?

Though Chloe was the younger of the two Taylor sisters, she always seemed to be in charge. She was the honor roll student with big dreams and an even bigger work ethic. Nicky was always restless . . . and more than a little reckless—the opposite of her ambitious little sister. She floated from job to job and man to man, and stayed close to home in Cleveland.

For a while, it seemed like both sisters had found happiness. Chloe earned a scholarship to an Ivy League school and moved to New York City, where she landed a coveted publishing job. Nicky married promising young attorney Adam Macintosh, and gave birth to a baby boy they named Ethan. The Taylor sisters became virtual strangers.

Now, more than fifteen years later, their lives are drastically different—and Chloe is married to Adam. When he’s murdered by an intruder at the couple’s East Hampton beach house, Chloe reluctantly allows her teenaged stepson’s biological mother—her estranged sister, Nicky—back into her life. But when the police begin to treat Ethan as a suspect in his father’s death, the two sisters are forced to unite . . . and to confront the truth behind family secrets they have tried to bury in the past.

    So what dictates the better sister? I thought one sister marrying her sisters husband was something, but the story gets better. This book was something else. An abusive father, which was a prominent prosecutor, was killed. They suspected the son did it, but the father was hiding something. The stepmom-aunt had a burner phone as well as the son, but for what? Ethan the son wanted to know about his real mom, but.....he never knew his father and stepmom-aunt committed her so they could be together. Did one of the sister's kill him, the son, or was it the man the sister was having an affair with? I would tell you but you gotta read it.....In the end, blood is thicker than water, right? #book43of2019 #bookworm #whatsnext
