Sister Dear

After spending 10 years in prison Allie Marshall is finally getting out of prison on parole.  Convicted for a crime she did not commit, she has lost a part of her life that she will never get back.  Before being convicted of murdering a local highschool football coach, Allie had a promising future.  Pursuing a medical career and a beautiful five year old Allie seemed to have it all.  Who set her up and why?

Now that Allie is back in her hometown things still aren't going well.  Nobody in town is accepting her, the sheriff doesn't trust her and her family doesn't know how to act around her, but the hardest part for Allie is that her daughter no longer knows her and wants nothing to do with her.  She wants to continue to live with her aunt Emma.  Allie is determined to prove her innocence in order to get her life back and prove to everyone that she is innocent.

This was a pretty good book.  It was fairly predictable on the "who done it", but the why and how was a mystery and learning that was quite interesting.  It was also very relatable.  You have two sisters that grew up in the same home, raised by the same parents, one struggles through life and the other seems to have the perfect life.  This seems very common in families.

The author jumps from character to character, but you know who's perspective you are reading from.  This was interesting because you could know exactly what was going on in the head of each character.

This was the first novel I have read by auther Laura McNeill and I would definitely be interested in reading more of her work!
