When five hyper-successful women agree to appear on a reality series set in New York City called Goal Diggers, the producers never expect the season will end in murder…
Brett’s the fan favorite. Tattooed and only twenty-seven, the meteoric success of her spin studio—and her recent engagement to her girlfriend—has made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her cast mates.
Kelly, Brett’s older sister and business partner, is the most recent recruit, dismissed as a hanger-on by veteran cast. The golden child growing up, she defers to Brett now—a role which requires her to protect their shocking secret.
Stephanie, the first black cast member and the oldest, is a successful bestselling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her hot, non-working actor-husband and his wandering eye, but this season the focus is on the rift that has opened between her and Brett, former best friends—and resentment soon breeds contempt.
Lauren, the start-up world’s darling whose drinking has gotten out of control, is Goal Diggers’ recovery narrative—everyone loves a comeback story.
And Jen, made rich and famous through her cultishly popular vegan food line plays a holistic hippie for the cameras, but is perhaps the most ruthless of them all when the cameras are off.
I was excited to read Jessica Knoll’s second book The Favorite Sister after reading and loving The Luckiest Girl Alive.
The Favorite Sister was very reality showish, which makes since given the main characters are from a reality show. That normally wouldn’t be my thing (I hate reality shows, sorry).
However, the way Jessica Knoll writes it and the added suspense of who killed fan favorite Brett was enough to keep me reading. There were so many twists and lies I honestly didn’t know what to expect next and I truly had no clue who did it. The Favorite Sister ended up being a shocking and catty murder mystery with just enough reality show to make it different from what I’ve read before.
I ended up really enjoying it and can’t wait for Jessica’s next novel. She truly is a wonderful author.
