The Favorite Sister by Jessica Knoll

5 Star

When five hyper-successful 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 twenty-seven, 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 cast mates.
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 which requires her to protect their shocking secret.
Stephanie, the first black cast member and the oldest, is a successful bestselling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her hot, non-working 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.

Even though I am a not a fan of reality television show, which this story focuses on, I am definitely a fan of Jessica Knoll`s and have been since her first book, Luckiest Girl Alive, came out. Her reading style is just so compulsively readable that I possibly stayed up far later than I should have because I just could not force myself to put down the book.

Based on the lives of 5 characters, of which two are sisters, this story rocked its way through another story I could imagine happening. Reality TV shows don't seem so innocent to me, from the little I have watched and I can absolutely imagine something nefarious happening. Full of the usual alliance and betrayals and drama, the show itself was sure to be a hit with these overly ambitious women all competing.

Lots of twists and turns and shocking events brought us to a conclusion that I had never imagined which is great because I hate figuring out a story and there was little if any chance of that here! If you love a great and wild ride, pick this book up, especially if you have some upcoming vacation time!
