I was really excited to read Jo Treggiari’s new book, as I really liked Blood Will Out last year. The Grey Sisters is a novel about friendships, loved losses and what’s it like to seek for closures. However, as much as I make it sound like a sweet one, this book is not. This book is twists and turns and a very compiling thriller. A genre that Jo Treggiari has mastered well.
If a book succeeds in me finishing it in one seating while enjoying it, it’s a big win for me. That’s how The Grey Sisters did for me. However, for a book to reach the 5 stars, I need more substances in the twist and the plot twists have to be out of this world. Which is something I think the author can reach after writing a few more thrillers. That’s what’s hard with reviewing thrillers, often, I’ve seen the elements somewhere else yet we, as readers, still expect thrillers to surprise us. Only a few come in a lifetime, a thriller will leave me speechless.
For this book, I really like reading about the perspective of a child growing up in a cult and how her story unfolds to relate to the main arc. Something about cults always give terrifying vibes, but that’s for another time. The thing is, this book a the right amount of suspense, thrillers and a little bit of that feeling where you think someone is watching over from afar. Just enough to make the reader react.
