Reviews for The Good Sister
"Drama, romance, mystery, and murder, all centered around a little town. THE GOOD SISTER is an outstanding debut novel from Amielise Gable. Ms. Gable presents the reader with a unique love story with a cast of endearing yet almost misfits, who each have their own foibles as well as qualities that make them dear to the reader’s heart. CJ Richter is enthralling, and almost boarders on a paranormal character. I loved this story and look forward to what Ms. Gable offers us in the future. - 5 Stars Night Owl Reviews
"LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! It’s shocking in ways, but tender in others. Dramatic and romantic, a wonderful contemporary with interesting characters and a plot line that’s a little different than you might expect. Amielise Gable is definitely among the best in new romance authors." - Natalie-Nicole Bates, Multi-published author of contemporary and paranormal romance

An Interview with Amielise Gable
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Amielise, thank you for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is The Good Sister. Where did the idea for this amazing story originate?
AG: I love a good contemporary story. I actually started with the hero after I saw a program on television about cemetery excavations. You see a lot of paranormal cemeteries centered around cemeteries, but not a lot of contemporaries.
What do you like best about Ryanne and why will readers identify with her?
AG: Ryanne is a very down to earth girl who had made her own way in life. Her family more or less turned their back on her when she didn’t conform to their ways of living. She is very independent.
What do you like best about CJ and why will readers love him?
AG: CJ is pretty much an anomaly. Long red hair, ethereal eyes. Someone told me that he almost borders on being a paranormal character. But as odd as he may seem to some, he is extremely smart and successful, and he has a very interesting set of parents. I think readers will find him to be a very different sort of hero then they are used to.
HH: How did you go about creating this town full of secrets?
AG: I attempted to make the town of Mount Pleasant a character of its own. Almost an evil heart with outstretching tentacles that reach out to everyone. On the outside, it may be quaint and enticing, but everyone has something a bit unsavory up their sleeve.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
AG: I’m currently working on another contemporary with a paranormal twist. Hopefully it will be ready by the spring.
HH: When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
AG: Probably high school is when I first started thinking seriously about writing.
HH: Do you have appearances, in person or online, planned for the fall?
AG: I have a number of blog hops I’ll be participating in over the season, and perhaps an appearance at the Festival of Romance here in the United Kingdom.
HH: What inspires you in your writing?
AG: I don’t think of it as inspiration, but more of a drive that makes me want to put words to paper.
HH: What are you reading at the moment?
AG: A friend passed on to me a copy of Jacqueline Susann’s Valley of the Dolls. She said it changed her life. I have to say it’s absolutely amazing. A book written in the 1960’s, but is still relevant today.
HH: Do you celebrate Halloween, and if so, how?
AG: Halloween is only starting to become popular in the United Kingdom. I do carve the pumpkins and put out the decorations. A god time to be had, for sure.
HH: Thank you!
