About the Book
All Allie Marshall wants is a fresh start. But when dark secrets refuse to stay buried, will her chance at a new life be shattered forever?
Convicted of a crime she didn’t commit, Allie watched a decade of her life vanish – time that can never be recovered. Now, out on parole, Allie is determined to clear her name, rebuild her life, and reconnect with the daughter she barely knows.
But Allie’s return home shatters the quaint, coastal community of Brunswick, Georgia. Even her own daughter Caroline, now a teenager, bristles at Allie’s claims of innocence. Refusing defeat, a stronger, smarter Allie launches a battle for the truth, digging deeply into the past even if it threatens her parole status, personal safety, and the already-fragile bond with family.
As her commitment to finding the truth intensifies, what Allie ultimately uncovers is far worse than she imagined. Her own sister has been hiding a dark secret—one that holds the key to Allie’s freedom.

Accused of a murder she did not commit, Allie Marshal is sent to jail for a decade. Released for an early parole, all Allie wants is her life back and to reconnect with her daughter. But when Allie returns home it shatters the peace of the community and especially from Allie’s claim of not committing murder. Allie is determined to discover what happened that fateful night when she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. But the truths that Allie discovers may be far worse than she ever could have dreamed. Sisters should be the very best of friends, even with the typical sibling rivalry. But Emma, Allie’s younger sister, has always felt inferior and all may not be exactly what it seems.
Written from the point of view of Allie, Emma, and Allie’s daughter Caroline, Dear Sister is a mysterious and intriguing story that will hook readers from page one and keep them on the edges of their seats the entire book long. Filled with suspense and thrills, readers will not be able to put down this fascinating and mysterious contemporary read.
