A sisters’ secret.
A mysterious phenomenon.
A murder that ties it all together.
An emotional, suspenseful novel about the bond between sisters and the secrets we hold to keep our family safe, The Sisters of Blue Mountain is a thrilling mystery that hurtles towards an unexpected ending that will leave readers speechless.
The small town of Mountain Springs, Pennsylvania thrives on the snow geese migration. Each year, the birds flock to the dam, and the tourists follow, filling up Linnet’s Bed and Breakfast.
But one morning Linnet wakes up to discover hundreds of dead geese by the B&B and her life is thrown into the media frenzy when her father―a former ornithology professor―is asked to study the case. As the tourists cancel their plans and Linnet’s father’s health grows increasingly worse, the last thing she expects is to see her estranged sister, Myna, on her doorstep.
Myna has never stayed in one place for long after running from Mountain Springs. Although she and Linnet were close growing up, a family secret broke their bond, and Myna’s return has brought back memories both sisters have tried to keep buried.
When a reporter arrives in town who may have a connection to the sisters’ past, Linnet and Myna are forced to confront the event that tore them apart. But when a young professor who was assisting their father on the case turns up dead―and their father becomes the primary suspect―Linnet and Myna realize that their secret won’t stay hidden for long…
THE SISTERS OF BLUE MOUNTAIN by Karen Katchur is a deeply emotional tale with elements of suspense and mystery sprinkled throughout, that will keep you hooked to the very end. Linnet and Myna used to be close but when family secrets were forged, they became more distant. Now as adults, Myna lives wherever the breeze takes her, while Linnet runs the family B&B business while looking after her ageing father, a retired Professor who was always known locally as the Bird Man. When the graceful snow geese that draw tourists to the area, start to fall dead from the sky, Linnet knows that something awful is happening, and realises that the town will look to her failing father for answers. But when a younger Professor who came to help discover the cause of the strange phenomena, is found dead, it will force Linnet and Myna to confront their past, as the two mysteries converge.
With an expert setting and well-developed characters, we are immersed in the relationship of Linnet and Myna, two sisters forced apart by their secret past, who struggle to reconnect at a time when they need each other most. While not always likeable, the characters are more realistic for their flaws. THE SISTERS OF BLUE MOUNTAIN by Karen Katchur is a story of family in all of its shades and depths and I enjoyed reading it.
