Stephanie DeCarolis' latest psychological thriller, "The Perfect Sister," is a gripping tale shrouded in mystery and deception. With excellent character development and a menacing, suspenseful atmosphere, this novel kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end.

However, it was the latter half of the book that truly elevated "The Perfect Sister" to a five-star read for me. The twists and turns that DeCarolis un
leashes are nothing short of brilliant, causing my assumptions and theories to crumble one by one. Just when I thought I had a grasp on the narrative's direction, the author skillfully pulled the rug from under my feet, leaving me reeling and craving more.
