    Elle Marr is obviously a talented writer but this is not the kind of book where you just glide through the words and turn pages compulsively I kept setting this down and picking it up again, struggling to find a rhythm with it.She wrote good characters and the premise was fantastic but I never felt quite as connected to this book as I hoped I absolutely recommend it however, as I feel my experience may be unique to me this time.Thank you to Elle Marr, Thomas Mercer and NetGalley for giving m Elle Marr is obviously a talented writer but this is not the kind of book where you just glide through the words and turn pages compulsively I kept setting this down and picking it up again, struggling to find a rhythm with it.She wrote good characters and the premise was fantastic but I never felt quite as connected to this book as I hoped I absolutely recommend it however, as I feel my experience may be unique to me this time.Thank you to Elle Marr, Thomas Mercer and NetGalley for giving me this ARC in exchange for an honest review

    Waste of time Shayna goes to Paris after her sister is found dead She reads a message in their secret twin language that she is really alive, so decides to retrace the steps of her sisters last days to try and find her.The story was underdeveloped and mystery was short lived Ending predictable and it was slow to get there There is little to no build up for the suspense I was continuously bored and just wanted to just flip to the last few pages because everything in between was so pointless Waste of time Shayna goes to Paris after her sister is found dead She reads a message in their secret twin language that she is really alive, so decides to retrace the steps of her sisters last days to try and find her.The story was underdeveloped and mystery was short lived Ending predictable and it was slow to get there There is little to no build up for the suspense I was continuously bored and just wanted to just flip to the last few pages because everything in between was so pointless The whole thing was just a poor quality mystery suspense novel.The prose was absolutely ridiculous.The main character, Shayna, is a pre med student who is described as very intelligent in the beginning Her character doesn t seem to maintain this intellectual trait throughout the mystery though.Total disappointment I kept reading hoping there might be a major surprise and revelation in the end but there wasn t It was under 300 pages though, so I suffered through.Not for me When I came to rate this I was thinking about any redeeming qualities, but I couldn t really think of anything I liked except that it was over

    The Missing Sister by Elle Marr is an ambitious novel and, I must admit, I am struggling to articulate my thoughts The writing and premise are excellent, however I did grapple with the execution of a plot that I think tries to tackle too much, and becomes a bit chaotic at times as a result..Shayna Darby flies to Paris to identify the body of her twin sister Angela who has purportedly been murdered While trying to come to grips with this, Shayna sees a coded message that only she and her sister The Missing Sister by Elle Marr is an ambitious novel and, I must admit, I am struggling to articulate my thoughts The writing and premise are excellent, however I did grapple with the execution of a plot that I think tries to tackle too much, and becomes a bit chaotic at times as a result..Shayna Darby flies to Paris to identify the body of her twin sister Angela who has purportedly been murdered While trying to come to grips with this, Shayna sees a coded message that only she and her sister could recognize Alive Trust no one The search is on for the missing twin, and it will take Shayna from the catacombs of Paris to the nefarious brothels that inhabit the City of Light While I did find events rather difficult to follow with any real degree of engagement, I loved the writing style and did enjoy the descriptions of Paris as the city seems to become a character in and of itself Unfortunately, this is a story that I didn t fully connect with, however I do recognize its merits and believe it will hit the spot with many others.3.5 starsMany thanks to NetGalley and Thomas Mercer for this ARC

    An interesting synopsis that caught my attention immediately Unfortunately it s a bit of a slow read, I had a tough time connecting and kept putting it down I powered through the last 20% because I HAD to know the outcome The French writing tripped me up quite a bit, not knowing the language and having it come up often sometimes without the translation was a bit frustrating Overall this was just an ok read.Thanks so much to NetGalley and Thomas Mercer for my review copy An interesting synopsis that caught my attention immediately Unfortunately it s a bit of a slow read, I had a tough time connecting and kept putting it down I powered through the last 20% because I HAD to know the outcome The French writing tripped me up quite a bit, not knowing the language and having it come up often sometimes without the translation was a bit frustrating Overall this was just an ok read.Thanks so much to NetGalley and Thomas Mercer for my review copy

    This is my Kindle First selection for this month I think all in all I found it a little too heavy on the descriptive for my personal liking, though the story IS an intriguing one What merited it an additional star for me was that there are NO MISTAKES and if you happen across any of my reviews you ll know this is a bloody miracle It is so impressive and proves it can be done, which is why I get so irritated when 99% of digital books are slung out there with heaps of mistakes.I was fascinat This is my Kindle First selection for this month I think all in all I found it a little too heavy on the descriptive for my personal liking, though the story IS an intriguing one What merited it an additional star for me was that there are NO MISTAKES and if you happen across any of my reviews you ll know this is a bloody miracle It is so impressive and proves it can be done, which is why I get so irritated when 99% of digital books are slung out there with heaps of mistakes.I was fascinated to learn about this secret city beneath Paris I had never heard of before I hadn t a clue it existed and so many dead are interred below And I ve visited Paris but no mention was made anyplace that I saw Most peculiar.Our leading lady Shayna did annoy me quite a lot, I must say At times she was horribly rude or stroppy and for somebody so intelligent on paper, she did some pretty idiotic things, which did not endear her to me in the least Some actions she embarked upon I did find a little too far fetched as well My favourite character is Madame Chang She s an amazing creation.I happened upon the most bizarre analogy I ever expect to read anyplace in this book, too shadows climb the opposite stone walls like in a Charlton Heston film She was referring to an inner courtyard of The Sorbonne at the time but still..that was very strange to me Another thing the author referred to in her Acknowledgements also baffled me when she said she first recalls seeing mixed race couples and their children on screen in the mid 2000s Surely that can t be right So all in all, I enjoyed the story but I wassatisfied with the presentation than the tale
