Book Promo & GIVEAWAY: ‘Forbidden Sister’ by V.C. Andrews

The first novel in a brand new series from V.C. Andrews, Forbidden Sister, is a thrilling addition to the sizable library of a prolific author (well, or author’s name, as the books are now ghost written after her death).  Many bookstores and libraries have recently placed Ms. Andrew’s work in their YA sections, but I still feel that they are much more adult oriented.  I am not sure where the decision came from to attempt to rebrand her works to the new YA audience, but my personal opinion is that they should remain an adult selection.  Maybe I’m just old-fashioned, but I think the topic matter is not appropriate for the YA crowd, given that there is so much else to choose from.  Regardless, no judgement!  So, whether you are an adult or almost adult, that is a fan of V.C. Andrews, or have never read any of her previous works, Forbidden Sister will supply a great addition to your creepy thriller shelf.   Releasing from Gallery Books/Pocket Books on February 26th (tomorrow!):

Book blurb:  15733260

In a tale twisting with heart-pounding suspense, shocking revelations, and the compelling family drama for which V.C. Andrews is known, Forbidden Sister introduces two new original heroines to capture any reader’s imagination.

I HAD EVERY REASON TO HATE HER, MY FORBIDDEN SISTER. SHE WAS LIKE SOMEONE WHO HAD DIED BUT WOULDN’T STAY BURIED. . . . Bestselling author V.C. Andrews unlocks an adventure of intrigue and temptation that shatters the innocence of a girl in search of the sister she’s never known.

Emmie Wilcox was only six when her older sister, Roxy, was thrown out of their New York City apartment. Their stern father’s military-style rules left no room for rebellion, and Roxy was continually defiant and rebellious. Emmie, now an outstanding student at a private school, is obedient, respectful, a fille parfaite, as her Parisian-born mother lovingly calls her. Two sisters, total opposites—yet Emmie is secretly obsessed with the mystery and imposed silence surrounding Roxy: What had she finally done to deserve being cast out of her home? Where is she now? Emmie can’t help but wonder if there is a hidden side to her that resembles Roxy’s defiant nature. Sometimes she fantasizes that she is more like Roxy than she appears. Sometimes she wants to be. She wants excitement, and being a good girl all the time is harder than it seems. Finally learning that Roxy is a highly paid escort to wealthy and powerful men, Emmie goes behind her father’s back to track down and spy on the sister she can’t help but be fascinated with, a sister whose influence might run deeper than Emmie ever dreamed.
