"That rare thing, a dark mystery that also works on your heart, 'The Butterfly
Sister' is a beguiling, terrifying story and Amy Gail Hansen a true find.
~JACQUELYN MITCHARD, author of The Deep End of the Ocean
“The Butterfly Sister begins with the arrival of a mysterious suitcase, but that is only the first of a serious of surprises Amy Gail Hansen has in store for readers. Just when we think we have a handle on the latest plot twist, here comes another--and the suspense builds again, all resting in the hands of Ruby Rousseau, a spirited young woman who has great taste in literature but not in men. Hansen’s first novel is heartfelt, suspenseful and very, very satisfying!”
~NANCY WOODRUFF, author of My Wife's Affair
“I LOVED IT. That book is the perfect beach read... girls who like dishy romantic thrillers are going to go nuts for it this summer. I myself couldn’t put it down til I was done, like it was a big fat pina colada.”
~MEG CABOT, New York Times Bestselling Author
~ PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY
"Hansen’s debut cleverly entwines these literary ghosts into a suspenseful and swiftly paced light mystery."
~ KIRKUS REVIEWS
"The Butterfly Sister offers an intimate and fluidly told tale of one young woman’s seeming to find love, nearly losing her mind, and slowly uncovering a complex history of betrayal...finding out what has happened to Beth leads Ruby to find out, in a satisfying and well-constructed conclusion, what happened to herself."
~BARBARA HOFFERT, Library Journal
"Hansen’s debut tale of madness, mystery, revenge, betrayal, love, and literature will keep you guessing until the surprise ending.”
~KAREN BRIGGS, Great Northern Books & Hobbies, Oscoda, MI
"Hansen creates a multilayered mystery that hooks the reader from the very beginning...One hopes for more offerings from Amy Gail Hansen."
~ NEW YORK JOURNAL OF BOOKS
"Ruby, proves to be a smart, complex, and very engaging character. An agreeable mix of suspense and literary fiction."
~HEATHER PAULSON, Booklist
