Then

When flames rip through their family home, only teenager Stephanie and her younger brother escape unhurt. Brett always liked to play with fire, but now their dad is dead and someone has to pay the price.

Now

Psychologist Connie Summers wants to help Stephanie rebuild her life. She has a new name, a young son and everything to live for. But when Stephanie receives a letter from someone she’d hoped would never find her, Connie is forced to question what really happened that night. But some truths are better left alone . . .

Gripping, tense and impossible to put down, Bad Sister will have fans of Sue Fortin, B A Paris and Linda Green hooked till the final page.

About Sam Carrington

Following the completion of a Psychology degree she went to work for the prison service as an Offending Behaviour Programme Facilitator. Her experiences within this field inspired her writing. She left the service to spend time with her family and to follow her dream of being a novelist. SAVING SOPHIE was her debut psychological thriller novel, her second, BAD SISTER is out now in ebook.

 

My Review

Connie Moore a prison psychologist has lost her reputation after her report was blamed for releasing an offender who went on to rape a woman. She relocated and changed her surname to Summers and set up in private practice, but her past comes back to haunt her when she becomes embroiled in supporting Stephanie, who had also changed her name from Jenna and is under witness protection.
There are many complexities within this story but they all link up in the end. 
This book required concentration because of the complexities of the plot, but I like that. I would recommend this to anyone who reads the crime thriller genre and will be reading more from Sam Carrington in the future.
