  7. Bearing in mind that I wasn t impressed by The Sister, Louise Jensen s debut psychological thriller, I was heartened that The Gift proved an immense improvement with an engaging narrative, realistic dialogue and some well defined characters Although The Gift is both an immersive and intriguing read, despite some moments of palpable suspense I wouldn t necessarily classify it as a thriller, and my enthusiasm for this novel stems from how seamlessly the scientific background is woven into the stor [...]

  22. All of my reviews can be found on novelgossipI was a HUGE fan of Jensen s debut novel, The Sister so I ve been eagerly awaiting her second book, The Gift since the cover reveal a few months back, isn t it stunning I love how it has a similar look to the cover of The Sister and I would ve been able to tell it was her book without even seeing her name on the cover I m so pleased to say that I absolutely loved this book, in fact I may have even liked it a little bit than The Sister even though I w [...]

  23. Having read and loved The Sister, which is the authors debut novel, I couldn t wait to read The Gift and see if it was as good Having now read it I can confidently say that yes, this was just as good if not slightly better if possible than her debut.Jenna has had a heart transplant Like most transplant patients, she is very keen to find out about the person who donated their organs There is a good reason why hospitals don t let patients do this and by the end I reckon Jenna wishes she had never [...]

  26. Dear Reader,For three quarters of this book I was Jenna Yes,you read that correctly The main character and I were as one,feeling the same anxiety,fear and anguish,united in our determination to decipher the hidden meaning behind the flashbacks,nightmares and dreams experienced by her,for the past six months,since she received her donor s heart Growing increasingly paranoid we trusted no one,saw danger and mistrust in every innocent display of love,friendship and advice Isolating ourselves,yet od [...]

  27.
