Description

An Amazon Charts, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today best seller

From the author of The Art of Inheriting Secrets comes an emotional new tale of two sisters, an ocean of lies, and a search for the truth.

Her sister has been dead for 15 years when she sees her on the TV news....

Josie Bianci was killed years ago on a train during a terrorist attack. Gone forever. It’s what her sister, Kit, an ER doctor in Santa Cruz, has always believed. Yet all it takes is a few heart-wrenching seconds to upend Kit’s world. Live coverage of a club fire in Auckland has captured the image of a woman stumbling through the smoke and debris. Her resemblance to Josie is unbelievable. And unmistakable. With it comes a flood of emotions - grief, loss, and anger - that Kit finally has a chance to put to rest: by finding the sister who’s been living a lie.

After arriving in New Zealand, Kit begins her journey with the memories of the past: of days spent on the beach with Josie. Of a lost teenage boy who’d become part of their family. And of a trauma that has haunted Kit and Josie their entire lives.

Now, if two sisters are to reunite, it can only be by unearthing long-buried secrets and facing a devastating truth that has kept them apart far too long. To regain their relationship, they may have to lose everything.

Disappointing

I tried to keep going with this.one, but the farther I progressed, the worse it got. I felt like the author was getting paid by the adjective count. The rambling on of descriptive details about every single scene was not only distracting to the story but so repetitive that I started to feel like I was being talked down to. I eventually gave up, no longer caring how the story ends.

Weak!

The story was so lame. It could've been so good had they built up the whole character theme and everything else. Kit as a narrator was horrific! That narrator sounded so disinterested, and it had nothing to do with the character of the story, it was the narrator who is terrible in her delivery. The overall story, bleh, I would not recommend this. It's a cute theme about mermaids and would be a very safe PG-ish book club read.

A dull read that drags on

I wanted to like this book. Initially, the characters were interesting and the story line slightly engaging. Then, brace for a reiteration of an overly descriptive/repetitive walk through the character's memories over and over again. It was an, "OK, we get it!" kind of book. And....don't get me started on the bizarre narration. It was incredibly distracting to hear the actor with such a thick accent try to sell her American born character through the wraparound syllables of Australia. I found myself focused on her I's which always came out as U's. I am 3/4 way into this book and declared, "U'm, done."

Narrator Pronunciation

I am about 2 hours into this book and although the story is ok I am about to give up because the narrators are AWFUL! The one narrating Kit is tolerable I guess but not that great but the one that is narrating for Josie/Mari is clearly not American. That’s not a problem In and of itself, i actually usually prefer foreign narrators because their voices tend to be more pleasant to me. However, she is narrating an American character and nowhere in America do they pronounce I as U. Fungers, that’s how she said fingers. Every short I is pronounced as “uh” and it is driving me crazy! I may need a refund on this one.

Just Plain Boring!

Story is uneventful, and pretty much goes nowhere... both narrators are really awful! Their attempts at accents were pathetic! Characture-like... don’t even bother listening! Parts read like a romance novel.

Couldn't finish.

Got about half way through but couldn't finish. To much descriptions of sex, food and drug use. Story started to really drag making the book feel like it was rambling on forever.

a little too sentimental

the book was very predictable and sometimes so sentimental or sickeningly sweet that I struggle to get through it.

When we believed in !mermaids

I don't get the rave reviews granted I'm not finished yet but a third thru i find it very average , kit is supposed to be looking for her sister in a foreign country but so far she spends a lot of time iwith a man she has met. Going around as if she had all the time In the world a physician with time off? Kinda silly almost, In my opinion it would have to change drastically to rate above a 3 for me anywa.y but we are all different when it comes to storytelling .

Casual Sex and Too Much Hype

Wow! How I wanted to LIKE this one . . . but no sooner than ER doctor and sister to the missing woman made it to New Zealand, she's at a bar contemplating hopping into bed with a man she just met. Not to mention that's all she wants or has wanted in a man. There's entirely too much fluff and nonsense, too much build up without any substance to this story, and I just can't stay with it. :(

Not for me and I love this author

I waited a while to listen to this book as though it sounded interesting and I adore the author, there was something telling me to skip it. Any yet all of the accolades and wonderful reviews and I gave in. Not my worst decision, but certainly not my best. The family is all messed up and the things that happen to the kids are heinous at best and clearly life altering and yet… I cannot fathom in any world that after faking her death that anyone would be forgiving and let her sister back in no matter what happened to her. There are just some things you cant come back from and that no I am sorry will make better. Seriously, Mari/Josie faked her death and went about life as if nothing happened with no regard for the crap storm she left in her wake. She lied to a clearly wonderful man and her children and then just because she lived through some really awful times thought it was okay to just walk away and leave her younger sister to clean up. I was mad when her husband gave in so easily. She was not deserving of his forgiveness , at least immediately. Once a master manipulator and liar always one. Blood only goes so far. The only decent person in the whole book was Javier. The mom, though recovered (major kudos to her for that as the struggle never ever goes away) seemingly did nothing to make up for her past and pushed her daughter to go to Aukland because she was too chicken to do so herself. She never took any responsibility for the horror she inflicted on her children and then just expected out all to be okay because she became sober. For goodness sakes her daughter even supported her with what seemed like little thanks no appreciation. She seems to have skipped the “make amends” step. Then at the end a few minutes of “we love you” for a cheery happily ever after was a total farce. I may be alone in this, but unless you are able to disconnect half your brain suspend any form of reality and accept things that would never ever happen than this is for you. If you cannot do those things than skip this. It honestly just made me mad and I was happy when it was over. Sorry.
