The Stolen Sisters by Louise Jensen

Damaged Goods

The Stolen Sisters by Louise Jensen is a fabulous compulsive contemporary psychological thriller that I just could not put down.

Louise Jensen lures the reader into the story from the start as we immediately feel sympathy for the characters. We begin asking questions as to what has happened to damage these young adults beyond repair.

The story is told from several alternating points of view. It is set ‘then’ and ‘now.’ Pieces of the puzzle are revealed bit by bit. There were times that were truly horrifying as my skin crawled while my heart broke for the three young sisters. I wanted to gather them up and wrap them in love.

There were moments when I literally gasped out loud. The action was definitely creepy at times as I had goose bumps.

Everyone has secrets, secrets that they want or need to protect. Sooner or later secrets will come out, some with disastrous consequences.
