The Favorite Sister: Jessica Knoll
To My Favorite Sister with Love:Melissa´s Memory Book Stephanie Fava
From Jessica Knoll - author of Luckiest Girl Alive, the instant New York Times best seller and the best-selling debut novel of 2015 - comes a blisteringly paced thriller starring competitive sisters whose dark secrets and lies result in murder when they sign on to a reality TV show. When five hypersuccessful women agree to appear on a reality series set in New York City called Goal Diggers, the producers never expect the season will end in murder.... Brett´s the fan favorite. Tattooed and only 27, the meteoric success of her spin studio - and her recent engagement to her girlfriend - has made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her castmates. Kelly, Brett´s older sister and business partner, is the most recent recruit, dismissed as a hanger-on by veteran cast. The golden child growing up, she defers to Brett now - a role that requires her to protect their shocking secret. Stephanie, the first black cast member and the oldest, is a successful best-selling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her hot, nonworking actor-husband and his wandering eye, but this season the focus is on the rift that has opened between her and Brett, former best friends - and resentment soon breeds contempt. Lauren, the start-up world´s darling whose drinking has gotten out of control, is Goal Diggers´ recovery narrative - everyone loves a comeback story. And Jen, made rich and famous through her cultishly popular vegan food line plays a holistic hippie for the cameras but is perhaps the most ruthless of them all when the cameras are off. The Favorite Sister explores the invisible barriers that prevent women from rising up the ranks in today´s America - and offers a scathing take on the oft-lionized bonds of sisterhood and the relentless pressure to stay young, relevant, and salable. 1.

´´My Sister, the Serial Killer is a gem, in the most accurate sense: small, hard, sharp, and polished to perfection.´´ --Edgar Cantero, New York Times bestselling author of Meddling Kids A short, darkly funny, hand grenade of a novel about a Nigerian woman whose younger sister has a very inconvenient habit of killing her boyfriends ´´Femi makes three, you know. Three and they label you a serial killer.´´ Korede is bitter. How could she not be? Her sister, Ayoola, is many things: the favorite child, the beautiful one, possibly sociopathic. And now Ayoola´s third boyfriend in a row is dead. Korede´s practicality is the sisters´ saving grace. She knows the best solutions for cleaning blood, the trunk of her car is big enough for a body, and she keeps Ayoola from posting pictures of her dinner to Instagram when she should be mourning her ´´missing´´ boyfriend. Not that she gets any credit. A kind, handsome doctor at the hospital where Korede works is the bright spot in her life. She dreams of the day when he will realize they´re perfect for each other. But one day Ayoola shows up to the hospital uninvited and he takes notice. When he asks Korede for Ayoola´s phone number, she must reckon with what her sister has become and what she will do about it. Sharp as nails and full of deadpan wit, Oyinkan Braithwaite´s deliciously deadly debut is as fun as it is frightening.
