I’m back with another book review. Today it’s the turn of The Twins by J.S. Lark. I don’t know about you but I always love a thriller involving twins, and this creepy one doesn’t disappoint!
From the moment they are born, twins Susan and Sarah are inseparable. Through good and bad, the girls will always be together…forever.
Until they meet Jonny.
Older, charming and handsome, Jonny offers the girls the much-needed love and attention they crave. But he can only choose one and for the first time in their lives the girls find themselves split apart – the invisible thread that binds them severed.
Set-free from her twin, Sarah builds a new life for herself, marries, has a daughter. But Susan’s life spirals further and further out of control.
And now Susan is back. And she’s determined to reclaim everything she feels Sarah has taken from her.
Her home, her husband…her life?
What I Thought
The Twins is a very twisty turny read, it plays with your mind. Of course, like most “twin” thrillers you have a good and a bad twin. Sarah is the good twin with a daughter and husband, and Susan is the bad twin. Who comes back into Sarah’s life causing trouble. But not all is what it seems.
It’s told from two different times – when the girls were teenagers and now, 30 years later. Also from the twin’s perspective, so it can get confusing at times. The author touches on very tough and hard to read topics – child neglect, child rape and drug addiction. So a little warning there.
I found The Twins captivating, made me hungry for more, and in all honesty it kept giving and giving what a reader needs in a thriller. The exciting chase to the end. Predictable ending?… yes and no! Would I recommend?… hell yes! Worthy of a 5 star rating!
