The Favorite Sister Reviews
This is an entertaining and suspenseful novel.
The story revolves around five successful women that star in a reality TV show that showcases their businesses and lives. It is revealed in the first chapters that one of the stars, Brett, has been murdered and the novel describes the events leading up to that point.
The story is told in different points of view and alternates between the present and the past. The dynamic between the characters reminded me of the women in the Housewives reality TV s ...more
Reality TV is like driving drunk. You know it might kill you, but there is something rakishly sexy about participating in what may be your own demise.
2.5 stars. Oh, how I wanted to love this book. A murder mystery woven into the lives of five hyper-successful women, layered with all the drama and scandal typical of reality TV? Sign me up. The blurb just sounds so juicy and fun, the cast of characters is wonderfully diverse, and if that isn't enough, that final tagline promises the exploration ...more
4 questioning reality stars to The Favorite Sister! ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Five successful women are appearing on a reality show called Goal Diggers, and the season ends with the murder of one of the stars. The book covers the events leading up to the murder.
I don’t watch tv often, but when I do, my flavor of choice is reality tv. I think it’s partially because I’m part of the reality tv generation. Just as soon as I hit adulthood, Survivor, Big Brother, and The Bachelor, were on everyone’s watch list. I also ...more
First off, I am SO glad I read this as a group. This one divided us a bit, but it made for some very interesting discussions. Some ladies love reality television and some do not, and it seemed to have some effect on how they felt about this book. I'm not a fan of reality TV. There were parts in this book that I found very gripping and some amazing quotes and thoughts from the author, but it took me quite awhile to get into it. There were just too many characters being introduced too quickly. The ...more
Wicked and deliciously scandalous
I am the first to admit that I love to read and watch books and shows that contain catty drama, gossip, and backstabbing. This one did not disappoint. This book was in the same vein as the Real Housewives franchise (Carol and I did a buddy read together, and she made this astute observation). I couldn't agree with her more.
This book was about a reality show called, "The Goal Diggers." The show's aim was to showcase high-powered women carving out a name for themse ...more
When five successful young women agree to appear on a reality series set in New York City called Goal Diggers, they are launched into stardom, and all that comes with it.
Brett’s the fan favorite. At only twenty-seven, the success of her spin studio and her recent engagement to her girlfriend have made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her cast mates and former friends.
Kelly, Brett’s older sister and business partner, is the most recent recruit, dismissed as a hanger-on by vete ...more
Wow! The number of twists in this book had my head spinning!
Jessica Knoll brings us a wonderful but terrifying portrayal of the dark side of sisterhood, leaving the reader wondering if the drama we see on Reality TV is actually less twisted than the truth. I found this novel absolutely captivating! Jessica’s use of alternating narrators kept me on my toes—I didn’t know who to trust or believe. Once I thought I had the dynamics and characters figured out, the narrator would change and everything ...more
Sadly, I have tried reading this book on two separate occasions now, and during this second attempt have only managed to make it a measly 10% in over a period of almost one week. One of my goals this year was not to push through books I'm not enjoying (as it never seems to result in a productive review for the author or publisher), so I'd rather stop here and state that it just wasn't for me. I would, however, encourage you to check out the positive reviews on Goodreads, as these readers have hi ...more
