Mini Review: Sister of Mine by Laurie Petrou

MINI REVIEW:
This was the perfect read to lose myself in during the Thanksgiving long weekend. It's a dark and atmospheric tale about 2 sisters. It was a gripping thriller that focuses on the complicated relationship between sisters Penny and Hattie. 
The story is told from Penny's point of view. This book is not similar in the storyline at all, but I could help but relate the characters to Sally and Gillian from Practical Magic. Penny is the more structured and sensible, dark-haired sister (like Sally) and Hattie, the free spirit, red-haired sister(like Gillian). It's likely just me making this comparison. 
Petrou's writing is very vivid. The story unraveling like a movie in your head, that is delivered at the perfect pace. It's a very character-driven novel and the author crafted them beautifully. It's a small, intimate character cast that just adds to the overall atmosphere of the book. I really enjoyed this book. A quick, unique read that was a great pick for the #readcanlit book club!
