Beschreibung

From Jessica Knoll—author of Luckiest Girl Alive, the instant New York Times bestseller and the bestselling debut novel of 2015—comes a blisteringly paced thriller starring two sisters who join the cast of a reality TV series. One won’t make it out alive. So…who did it?

When five hyper-successful women agree to appear on a reality series set in New York City called Goal Diggers, the producers never expect the season will end in murder…

Brett’s the fan favorite. Tattooed and only twenty-seven, the meteoric success of her spin studio—and her recent engagement to her girlfriend—has made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her castmates.

Kelly, Brett’s older sister and business partner, is the most recent recruit, dismissed as a hanger-on by veteran cast. The golden child growing up, she defers to Brett now—a role which requires her to protect their shocking secret.

Stephanie, the first black cast member and the oldest, is a successful bestselling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her hot, non-working actor-husband and his wandering eye, but this season the focus is on the rift that has opened between her and Brett, former best friends—and resentment soon breeds contempt.

The Favorite Sister explores the invisible barriers that prevent women from rising up the ranks in today’s America—and offers a scathing take on the oft-lionized bonds of sisterhood, and the relentless pressure to stay young, relevant, and salable.

  • (2/5)
    Long and dragged out. Liked the idea and plot but I forced myself to continue. Ultimately could not finish it.
  • (4/5)
    Pretty good book. A bit long. But kind of like an insight to reality tv
  • (2/5)
    Half way through & NO murder yet. Waste of time
  • (3/5)
    Slow, but intriguing plot. A good beach book or easy listening on a lazy Sunday
  • (2/5)
    I couldn’t get into it. The narrator’s voice just didn’t work for me. I didn’t believe this is how the characters would sound. I couldn’t quite figure out what the heck this reality show was until much further in than I would have liked. Perhaps I’d like the book better by actually reading it, but I stopped the Audio version less than half way through. I would not recommend.
  • (1/5)
    This audiobook is all out of order, making it very difficult to follow along. I stopped listening about 1/3 of the way through.
  • (4/5)
    It had good twists but it was hard to keep track of who was who

    The characters were true to life. The flow of the book was great. I love that the author added backstories for the main characters. But I Wished the person that was reading for Stephanie was a person of color; it would have been more realistic . Great behind the scenes secrets of how reality shows are produced.
