I must say that I was a little disappointed with this book. `THE GOOD SISTER' has an excellent premise: two sisters Jennifer and Catherine who have, since childhood, been bitter rivals. But they are forced to work together to run a multi-billion dollar satellite company that their deceased father founded.
Jennifer and Catherine play two very different roles in the company, which, with the help of hired mentor as well as mediator Peter Barnes, helps to cool down this bitter rivalry. Jennifer is the brains behind the launching and running of the satellites and Catherine is the sophisticated head of PR and in charge of bringing new clients into the company. But once superstar Padraig O'Connell shows an interest in one of the sisters and seemingly tries to worm his way into the company the rivalry begins to heat up again and soon turns deadly after an attempt is made on both sisters' lives. It is now up to Peter to solve the mystery of which sister would like to see the other one dead.
The problem that I had with `THE GOOD SISTER' was that it was a bit unbelievable with so many attempts on basically everyone in the books lives and all of them coming out fairly unscathed and the back and forth between the two sisters trying to figure out exactly who is trying to kill them. Also the book was a little predictable, for me, there was no big shocker at the end. However `THE GOOD SISTER' was a very easy read and it did keep me entertained for a couple of days. 3 stars.

To say this is atrocious drivel is to pay it a compliment. Skip this book and save your money AND your time. Learn from MY mistake and pass this one by.
Jennifer, the biz whiz and her actress sister Catherine have been rivals their entire lives. They are a year apart and despite the lavish gifts they received since childhood, there is that underlying resentment and rivalry.
Jennifer marries this revolting excuse of a man named Padraig O'Connell. He has no saving grace. Natrually Catherine gets into the mix and the marriage goes bust. That was ONE favor Catherine granted Jennifer!
Towards the end of the book, there is a battle to the death (and yeah, we do have a casualty here, folks) and the lackluster ending does nothing to enhance the book. There was not one single likable character in this atrocious book. There are no surprises, no shocks, no saving graces to be found. This book is a complete waste.
I would not wish this book on anyone. This book belongs in the toilet

This book keeps you wondering until the very end, with twist and turns that will shock you. I guarentee that you will not be able to put it down. It is a vivid story of two sisters that are in a lifelong rivalry. It is full of suspicions and accusations.
