There was a book published in the last five years, listed in adult sci-fi/fantasy I'm pretty sure with a cover design that looked like shattered glass, and the title might be like 'fractured' or 'shattered'.

I think it was about a woman who had been betrayed somehow by her sister, maybe turned in to the authorities, maybe for murder, she might have been sent to jail.

It has a sequel. I think the main character has violent impulses, and some kind of psychic-ish abilities.

There might be a mystery involved about what the main character actually did or didn't do, and they might have I believe the book is about the relationship between the two sisters, and I think the setting is contemporary, or at least not in the distant past.

The protagonist's memory or perceptions of reality might have been altered or be distorted, but, again, I'm not sure.

Sorry for all the vagueness, don't remember solid details. Thanks!

Not an exact match for your question, but Vicious, by V.E. Schwab, has a number of similarities:

  • Two sisters are involved with the protagonists
  • One sister betrayed the other
  • One sister has psychic abilities that enable her to control people
  • Setting is contemporary
  • Book was released in 2013

Cover art of Vicious

From the author's site:

A masterful, twisted tale of ambition, jealousy, betrayal, and superpowers, set in a near-future world.

Slated Trilogy

From your description, it could be these books. I haven't read them, but they appear to check enough boxes to at least be mentioned.

  • the female protagonist was arrested for some unknown crime
  • the protagonists memories were reset/altered
  • the names OP suggested matches two of the three books exactly (Shattered and Fractured)
  • the books were published recently
  • the covers off all the books contain different sorts of broken material (like glass or porcelain).
