My review

I delved into this book thinking it to be a thriller which would remain with me for days. The premise of the book was chilling; 2 sisters, twins, one dead, killed by her own sister. How, when, why? As usual, it is always a man who is the trigger, but in this, he is not only a catalyst but someone who is actively playing one sister against the other.

My first book by Amanda Robson, and I was amazed by the way she has painted the characters, Miranda the straight forward accountants, Zara artistic photographer, yet a cutter, and Sebastian boyfriend bound by his own nightmares and past.

I liked how the author had kept the identity of the sisters a secret. Till mid-story, I had no idea who was dead and who killed the other. Once the identity is revealed, the story moves at the same fast pace, but becomes a bit of a routine with no surprises and an unbelievable ending.

I loved the book till the identity reveal, then I rushed through it, hoping for more twists, but alas, none whatsoever.

Character development: could have been better especially Sebastian

Plot : started with a fast pitch yet shuddered mid book

Pace : fast till the end, 163 odd chapters, I could finish in a few hours.

On the whole, enjoyable if gone with the flow, not do much if analyzed.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Avon, and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.

My rating : 3.5 stars

Book blurb

When the body of a woman is found stabbed to death, the blame falls to her twin sister. But who killed who? And which one is now the woman behind bars?

Zara and Miranda have always supported each other. But then Zara meets Seb, and everything changes. Handsome, charismatic and dangerous, Seb threatens to tear the sisters’ lives apart – but is he really the one to blame? Or are deeper resentments simmering beneath the surface that the sisters must face up to?

As the sisters’ relationship is stretched to the brink, a traumatic incident in Seb’s past begins to rear its head and soon all three are locked in a psychological battle that will leave someone dead. The question is, who?

    1. Yp…. Some chapters were a paragraph long… It certainly was different.
      I wonder how you would have written this book. I would have made you put twists in the end, and not keep it so straightforward

      1. It’s amusing to think how a different author would handle something… especially as (s)he becomes known for a certain writing style or approach that is common across their work. Even when it’s just minor things…
