Rival Sisters Paperback – 1 August 2020
Enhance your purchase
Tragedy pushed them apart. Can troubled times bring them back together?
Hannah and Nat were teenagers when their mum died in a terrible accident. The pain of it tore them apart, creating a rift that they’ve never been able to bridge. Neither is able to understand or appreciate her sister’s perspective, each quick to be riled by the other.
Both women have been indelibly shaped by the tragedy. Hannah is controlling, desperate to protect her loved ones in a way she failed to do with her mum. Meanwhile, Nat is forever running from the ‘selfish daughter’ label that she was marked with after the accident.
Now secrets in both women’s lives threaten to bring them down. Help may be close at hand, but neither can see it. But with life falling apart and the truth in short supply, can they finally see past their differences to the bond that could bring them together?

About the Author
Louise has enjoyed working in marketing, recruitment and film production, all of which have helped steer her towards her current, and most loved, role―writer.
Originally from Melbourne, a trip around Australia led Louise and her husband to Queensland’s stunning Sunshine Coast, where they now live with their two sons, gorgeous fluffball of a cat and an abundance of visiting wildlife―the kangaroos and wallabies the most welcome, the snakes the least!
Awed by her beautiful surroundings, Louise loves to take advantage of the opportunities the coast provides for swimming, hiking, mountain biking and kayaking. When she’s not writing or out adventuring, Louise loves any available opportunity to curl up with a glass of red wine, switch on her Kindle and indulge in a new release from a favourite author.

Nat is a bit of a free spirit and is very devoted to her work with the less fortunate and has a habit of not being able to keep a job because she takes pity on people and wants to help them out even if it means breaking the rules. Consequently she has little or no money and is kicked out of her shared accommodation because she can't pay her share of the rent.
White night Phillie is their 89 yo grandmother and offers Nat a proposition to live with her which will get Hannah off her back about moving into supported accommodation because of her age. Nat agrees but very soon is drawn into a gambling addiction which threatens to take over her whole life and the lives of her family.
Louise Guy tackles some pretty interesting topics throughout this book - gambling, addiction, control, adoption and family and I read this book in a couple of days even reading 200 pages in one sitting. I highly recommend this book to readers of Womens Fiction, Family Stories and even psychological thrillers as it definitely has a dark story within.
This author continues to evolve with each novel and I can't wait to read her next novel when it comes out.
Good Australian read and I think I'll read more from Louise Guy.

I did like Phyllie.....she was at least a character you could warm to, but the sisters are a pair of flakes. The last highlight/note I made was that I didn't want to spend any more time with these hateful women.
I only spotted a mistake where I'd have used an apostrophe in drinks' cabinet but that was it so presentation is spot on.....I just hated the characters !
Loved how they moved and grew around each other but stayed connected.
Great at showing how people see and hear the same things but interperate them differently. Family at its best and worst.
Would definitely recommend.
Was I very good read, I felt their pain at the reunion & loss of a loved one.
