The Wrong Sister Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A psychological thriller for readers of The Good Girl and Girl on a Train, The Wrong Sister follows a woman with a troubled past whose search for the truth is fascinating, chilling, and ultimately horrifying.
Sometimes a perfect stranger...
From behind the wheel of her car, Tess Kincaid glimpses a woman walking down a Madison, Wisconsin, street. They've never met, but Tess senses an undeniable familiarity about her. Hair color, square chin, wide-set blue eyes... Tess sees the same features every time she looks in the mirror.
Is neither of those things.
Intrigued, Tess introduces herself and discovers that she and her doppelganger, Mimi, have more than appearance in common. They even share the same birthday. Mimi - confident and outgoing where Tess is understated and shy - is convinced they're twins, separated shortly after birth. Tess, who's felt unloved and unmoored since her mother disappeared years ago, only knows that there's more than coincidence at play. And when a body is discovered in a local marsh, Tess is entangled in a search for the truth that will prove fascinating, disconcerting, and ultimately terrifying....

Ms. Woods — according to her biographical profile, a psychologist by trade — has skillfully written both a thriller and a mystery. I have highlighted too many of her passages to repeat them here. Examples of her excellent writing appear on almost every page. She is fair with her clues and one in particular she dangles in front of us for most of the book, out in the open for all to see.
Although by just over the halfway mark I thought it was apparent (I chose that word carefully) where she was going with her story, Ms. Woods managed to both surprise and disappoint me by heading in a different direction. I had thought that the centrality of biogenetics to her story would have led her to cloning as an explanation for the wrong sister. But by writing in the first person and using instead psychology as an explanation, Ms. Woods fell into the classic Catch-22. A crazy person who knows she’s crazy can’t be crazy.
Her ending also required her readers to accept that in a relatively small city like Madison, Wisconsin, heavily populated by college students, a murdered body would remain undiscovered for 18 years.
Still, despite my expectations of a better, less conventional and more imaginative ending, the author’s intelligence is evident on every page. It was a pleasure to discover the talent that Ms. Woods displays in this book after wading through the works of so many time wasters.
When Tess is driving home from her father’s one day, she is stuck in traffic and sees a woman (Mimi) that looks a lot like herself. When she sees her again a day or so later she has to talk to her so she follows her into a hotel where the two come face to face. Tess and Mimi have more in common than just their looks, they have the same birthday. They also are very different. Tess is more shy and reserved and was raised by her father, since her mother ran off when Tess was 12. Mimi is confident and outgoing and has had a close relationship with her mother. Mimi who is in town for a job interview is sure that she and Tess are twins that were separated at birth. Tess is not sure, while yes looking alike and having the same birthday would be a sure thing they are twins. Tess does not see how they could have been separated and why her mother would leave her behind to go and live with her twin. And so the search for the truth begins.
The book is told in 2 timelines, The present, in the police station and the past about 2 weeks ago which eventually catches up to the present.
The book starts with Tess in the police station answering questions about a body that was found, and then jumps back in time as Tess is answering their questions and telling her story.
I don’t really want to say too much because I don’t want to give anything away. You have to go into this story not really knowing anything.
I will say I was hooked from page one. There was a couple of spots where the descriptions of an office or what not dragged a bit so I kind of skimmed a page here and there. But for the most part this kept me glued and I didn’t want to put it down. One more chapter, Okay one more chapter LOL
And the closer I got to the end I really didn’t want to put it down.
I know not much of a review. There is so much I want to say, But I am afraid if I do then it will spoil the book.
When Tess's sister Mimi joins the story, the plot takes a turn. Since the story is about the WRONG sister, could this refer to Mimi? Does she really love Tess - or is there a different game afloat? What is the situation between Mimi and Tess's boyfriend John? Is Tess in danger when she allows Mimi to sleep at her apartment? And why is Tess now being interviewed at the Police Station? Was there a crime that is linked to Tess? Can the helpful psychologist help Tess to control her anger despite her confusion? What is really happening here?
This was a cleverly done story, especially if you favor psychological mysteries, as I do. This one kept me wondering until the end.
I enjoyed the whole package of this book: the plot, the characters, and the author's writing. I'm definitely looking forward to adding more! .
