My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Ice Twins.
I wondered how the author came up with that title, now I know, and very apt it was too.
This story blew me away, I was glued to my Kindle reading this into the early hours of the morning.
It made me wonder, if gave birth to identical twins, not mirror images, exactly the same, how would I tell the difference? The author answered my long puzzled question in this book, it was well researched.
If one of the twins died, how would you know which one if they grew up pretending to be each other to play pranks? If they were so close, only they knew what they related to each other. We hear so often about how twins 'feel' what the other feels, they relate to their twin even when they are not physically there.
The anguish of Mom and Dad when a twin dies, its not just the loss, its the effect you know it is going to be on the surviving sibling. Its all there in this book.
I really thought I knew what was going to happen at the end. I was oh so wrong.
I cannot write spoilers, I cannot tell you more than I have done now, its so worth reading. I assure you, its a MUST read.
I would like to thank HarperCollins UK, HarperFiction/Blue Door via Net Galley for allowing me to read and review this wonderful book, and of course, my thanks to the author.
One of Sarah’s daughters died. But can she be sure which one? A terrifying psychological thriller that will chill you to the bone.
A year after one of their identical twin daughters, Lydia, dies in an accident, Angus and Sarah Moorcraft move to the tiny Scottish island Angus inherited from his grandmother, hoping to put together the pieces of their shattered lives.
But when their surviving daughter, Kirstie, claims they have mistaken her identity – that she, in fact, is Lydia – their world comes crashing down once again.
As winter encroaches, Angus is forced to travel away from the island for work, Sarah is feeling isolated, and Kirstie (or is it Lydia?) is growing more disturbed. When a violent storm leaves Sarah and her daughter stranded, Sarah finds herself tortured by the past – what really happened on that fateful day one of her daughters died?
