{{Book Review}} Sister Dear | All Allie Marshall wants is a fresh start. But when dark secrets refuse to stay buried, will her chance at a new life be shattered forever?

Convicted of a crime she didn't commit, Allie watched a decade of her life vanish --- time that can never be recovered. Now, out on parole, Allie is determined to clear her name, rebuild her life, and reconnect with the daughter she barely knows.

But Allie's return home shatters the quaint, coastal community of Brunswick, Georgia. Even her own daughter Caroline, now a teenager, bristles at Allie's claims of innocence. Refusing defeat, a stronger, smarter Allie launches a battle for the truth, digging deeply into the past even if it threatens her parole status, personal safety, and the already-fragile bond with family.

As her commitment to finding the truth intensifies, what Allie ultimately uncovers is far worse than she imagined. Her own sister has been hiding a dark secret---one that holds the key to Allie's freedom.

*My Review*
I have always enjoyed a good mystery. "Sister Dear" is the first book from Allie McNeill that I have ever read before. This book is told from five different viewpoints to give the reader several perspectives. This really helps in developing the characters. The thing that I didn't care for was that the book jumps around between viewpoints quite a bit and jumps back and forth between past and present....but McNeill did an excellent job of indicating when this happens and what time period that you are reading.

The setting for "Sster Dear" is in south coastal Georgia. The way the McNeill describes it will take you to the islands and you can feel the breeze blowing as you read. There is definitely a twist between two of the characters that I didn’t see coming(which was fun). I would recommended "Sister Dear" to those those who like  Mystery & Suspense.
