I'm finally catching up on a few reviews so today's review is of a book club read from a little while ago. This was not only a Shelf Addiction book club read, but my real world book club read it as well. My group had a fun and lively discussion about this title.
This was another title that I picked up super cheap on Amazon Kindle and got the additional Audible audiobook for equally as cheap. Win-win. I love when I'm able to switch back and forth. Without further ado - find out what I thought of My Sister's Grave.

Synopsis: Tracy Crosswhite has spent twenty years questioning the facts surrounding her sister Sarah’s disappearance and the murder trial that followed. She doesn’t believe that Edmund House — a convicted rapist and the man condemned for Sarah’s murder — is the guilty party. Motivated by the opportunity to obtain real justice, Tracy became a homicide detective with the Seattle PD and dedicated her life to tracking down killers.
When Sarah’s remains are finally discovered near their hometown in the northern Cascade mountains of Washington State, Tracy is determined to get the answers she’s been seeking. As she searches for the real killer, she unearths dark, long-kept secrets that will forever change her relationship to her past — and open the door to deadly danger.
A small town, a 20 year old murder, a creepy accused man, suspicious local police, and a cop looking for answers and closure. What more could we ask for?
As far as the plot goes, this was a forward moving story and the book was well paced. It kept me interested the whole time. The story alternates between the present day and the time where Tracy's sister was taken. It took a minute to get into the alternating, but after a little while I adjusted. Lastly, as you probably already know, I like a twist. I appreciate not being able to figure out the end game, so I enjoyed the end of this story. I liked how the story was tied up. There was an explanation for everything and all of the plot points fit into a nice solved puzzle.
My Sister's Grave was a great book on audio. The narrator, Emily Sutton-Smith, was excellent. Going back and forth between reading and listening is always a fun option and I find that I'm enjoying it immensely.
I recommend this novel for those who love crime fiction and for book clubs. As I mentioned earlier, my group had some great conversation surrounding this title. Have you read My Sister's Grave? If so, please share what you thought of it. If you've read other books by Robert Dugoni, I'd like to know what titles are also good.
Happy Reading & Listening,
