Blog Tour: Sisters of Berlin by Juliet Conlin


Happy Thursday all! Today's blog post is my stop on the Sisters of Berlin blog tour. I love how striking the cover is. Read on for my review.


REVIEW


The Sisters of Berlin tells the story of Nina. Her life is pretty conventional until her younger sister Marie is murdered in her appartment. As the investigation gets under way, Nina starts to realise she didn't really know her sister at all. And the deeper she gets the more her livelihood, marriage and everything she knows gets further and further into jeopardy.

I really felt for Nina whilst reading this, the amount of emotional turmoil and anguish she goes through and with such little support, was pretty heartbreaking in places. You can see that her heart is in the right place and I like her, was desperate to find out what had happened to her sister and who the culprit was.

This actually wasn't quite the story I was expecting. I wasn't expecting the focus to be as much on Nina and her inner struggles, but it gave me more of an understanding of our main character.

I haven't read any modern day stories set in Berlin, so this was surprisingly eye opening for me as well as the historical references to the tearing down of the Berlin wall. 

At times the story did feel a little slow, with perhaps some detail that maybe could have been missed out. I must admit I thought it was obvious whodunnit, but I couldn't have been more wrong.

A surprisingly heartbreaking and thought provoking read.
