The Favorite Sister by Jessica Knoll

The Favorite Sister by Jessica Knoll is a smart, audacious, and surprisingly funny “who done it” murder mystery.  The story centers around two sisters involved in the fast paced and cutthroat world of reality television.  One of the sisters is murdered but the who, what, where, when, and why are cleverly pealed back in layers told from different perspectives of the colorful cast of characters. Personas are crafted for the cameras and the reader is never really sure if they can truly believe what they see and read.  There are surprises… lots of them!  This on trend, totally pop culture thriller also explores feminism and female relationships on a really interesting level.  I highly recommend this book.  Take it on vacation with you this summer.  You won’t be sorry!
