From Sandie Jones, the New York Times bestselling author of the Hello Sunshine Book Club pick The Other Woman, comes The Half Sister; a compelling new domestic suspense novel about a family who is forever changed when a stranger arrives at their door.

Meet the half sister, and unravel the ties that blind us.


Sisters Kate and Lauren meet for Sunday lunch every week without fail, especially after the loss of their father.


But a knock at the door is about to change everything. A young woman by the name of Jess holds a note with the results of a DNA test, claiming to be their half sister.


As the fallout starts, it's clear that they are all hiding secrets, and perhaps this family isn't as perfect as it appears.
