The Missing Sister
Angela is The Missing Sister. She’d been living in Paris for the last three years when her twin, Shayna, gets the message that she’s been found dead, possibly the victim of a serial killer. Shayna flies over to identify her body and finds a secret message in her sister’s apartment that says her sister is alive. Shayna retraces Angela’s steps throughout Paris and its catacombs in an attempt to find her. Shayna isn’t the only one looking, though, and how do you know whom to trust in a city full of strangers and where you don’t speak the language? There is also a serial killer on the loose who will stop at nothing to finish his work.
I found this book to be a bit difficult to enjoy. None of the characters were likable, not even Shayna and Angela. They both seemed self-centered and irritating. The hard things they went through made them more so instead of bringing them together and making them stronger. The plot was somewhat convoluted with rabbit trails that didn’t appear to have much to do with the story. After all that, the motives of the killer ended up just being a repeat of history. There was a great deal in this book that didn’t make sense. The part I did enjoy was the descriptions of the city of Paris itself. The author did not paint its people in a very positive light, though. I’m sure there is a niche for this book, I’m not sure where.
