I've read most of Dawson's books and I think it's fair to say this isn't her best. It's too dark for chicklit and too tame to be a thriller and while I found the cave diving aspect fascinating, I'd rather read a true life account by some who actually knows something about it. I don't know why it's in the book, surely Anya's disappearance would have been suspenseful enough without it? As it is we are suffering plot overload - has she been abducted/drowned? which leads to a muddled and confusing narrative. Dawson seems to be outside her comfort zone, when writing about anything outside of domestic relationships and the parts involving the police (especially in Mexico) don't feel authentic. The book is narrated by three characters - Kate - the sensible sister - Anya - the foolhardy one and Mark who is in love with Anya.

First of, I have to say, that even given Anya's reckless nature, I found it a bit hard to credit some of the decisions she made - going off on a risky adventure in a country like Mexico with a man she doesn't know makes her seem like an naïve idiot rather than a woman who has travelled a lot on her own - I'm surprised she even survived into her 30s! The structure of the book is all over the place - Mark gets so little space that it's hardly worth having his viewpoint at all, and by the time he gets to Mexico, all the action is virtually over. Kate is an interesting, well written character but Anya's narrative is the most compelling. Couldn't help thinking it would be better if the whole story was told from her viewpoint. A lot of the narrative simply serves to provide flashbacks to the tragedy in the sisters' lives that split up a once happy family. I had already guessed more or less what must have happened.

It did keep me gripped the whole way through but I was a little disappointed in the ending - I was hoping for a little more closure. Wouldn't really recommend it at the price.

When this book came through my letterbox, I was instantly intrigued by it. The cover alone is compelling, it hints at something deep and mysterious to come, and from reading the blurb on the back, I was all the more interested and keen to find out what lay ahead for me in this story.

Little Sister opens with a Prologue in which Anya is travelling in a truck with a handsome man towards adventure. Wild and free, Anya has spontaneously gone on holiday and is about to go diving with an instructor, Rafa. We are then transported to a few days later in England. It is one am, and Kate's mobile rings, waking her and her husband Rob. A man on the other end of the phone tells Kate that he is ringing from Mexico and that there has been an incident. Police have recovered her sister Anya's clothes near a poolside in a deserted area of Mexico, and not only that, but she was last seen getting into a vehicle with a man and he is also missing. All of a sudden, the race is on, and Kate must find her younger sister before it is too late.

Wow is all I have to say about this story. Just wow. As soon as I read the first page i was hooked, and by the start of the second chapter I desperately felt for Kate and wanted to reach out to her. I felt myself channelling her emotions, I personally had an awful feeling in my stomach as I read about how the police had found Anya's clothes and I felt Kate's pain and heartache reflected in my own emotions.I read this story very quickly, from the start i was physically unable to put it down and raced through it, hoping with Kate that Anya would turn up.

Lucy Dawson has done a wonderful job of creating believable, relatable characters that we take right into our hearts and souls.

I was a huge fan of Dawson's previous books and was really looking forward to reading Little Sister.
I honestly had to go back the book several times as it just wasn't holding my attention. I spent the whole book wondering when something exciting was going to happen, some conclusion.
The book was very depressing and because it was advertised as 'dark' I thought the depressing theme would have something to do with what happened to Anya in the pool..........
Every characters actions and conversations seemed completely pointless and the long long dialogue from childhood is also pointless as it has little to do with the main character and what happened to her.
Extremely disappointing and dead-end ending, was actually wondering if there was pages missing. DO NOT BUY

Although well worth reading I was a little disappointed with this story. It started off really, really well, the tension was there but around two thirds of the way through I felt the tension waning and not gripping me as before.It became a little repetitive if I'm honest, shame as I have always enjoyed Lucy Dawsons writing.

When Kate is woken by a phone call in the middle of the night from Mexico to say that her sister Anya is missing, presumed dead, she's confused as as she didn't even know even know Anya was in Mexico!

But the one thing that Kate is convinced of is that Anya is still alive somewhere as she's an accomplished diver, despite what the evidence is pointing to, but how can she help her from the other side of the world especially when she has a newborn baby son to look after.

It's clear from the start that Kate and Anya have a strained relationship and as the story progresses we learn more about the events that led to the tragic death of their younger sister Emily which tore their whole family apart.

However, despite everything family is still extremely important to Kate, especially now she has one of her own, so she's determined to do whatever it takes to make people listen to her in the search for Anya.

The story is narrated from the points of views of both sisters alternating between Kate's fears back in England and Anya's struggles in Mexico. I have to confess that I thought there was going to be a little more behind Anya's disappearance than there actually was but despite this I'm definitely glad that I read this book.
