Keep Her Sweet

Thrilled to join the blog tour for this one today.

Desperate to enjoy their empty nest, Penny and Andeep downsize to the countryside, to forage, upcycle and fall in love again, only to be joined by their two twenty-something daughters, Asha and Camille.

Living on top of each other in a tiny house, with no way to make money, tensions simmer, and as Penny and Andeep focus increasingly on themselves, the girls become isolated, argumentative and violent.

When Asha injures Camille, a family therapist is called in, but she shrugs off the escalating violence between the sisters as a classic case of sibling rivalry … and the stress of the family move.

But this is not sibling rivalry. The sisters are in far too deep for that.

This is a murder, just waiting to happen…

Chilling, vicious and darkly funny, Keep Her Sweet is not just a tense, sinister psychological thriller, but a startling look at sister relationships and they bonds they share … or shatter.

My Bookish Thoughts

I adore this author and have been a huge fan since reading Worse Case Scenario. This is a book that definitely hasn’t disappointed. I have definitely been pulled in quickly with this one.

Fitzgerald writes in a way that is sharp and addictive. As a reader you are instantly pulled into the pages and feel as though you are watching the events play out.

This book introduces us to a dysfunctional and toxic family, which has really drawn me in. I have found myself wanting to know more about them. There are so many themes in this which are unpicked, as a reader we see everything from rivalry between siblings, parenting issues and unhappy marriages. This is definitely a must read.

This has definitely been a darker read than I had anticipated. The viewpoints from different characters have really added to this book and allowed us a holistic feel. Camille is probably the sweetest character, while I have found Asha particularly unlikeable.

This is filled with tension, suspense and a whole host of characters that will draw you into the pages. Helen Fitzgerald seems to get better and better with each book and this is a book which absolutely must be on the TBR.
