The Good Twin - by Diane Saxon


A mind-blowing 5 stars!


Be careful what you wish for…

Mum passed recently. It was sudden and unexpected. On the cusp of adulthood, my twin sister, Skye and I are left with decisions to make that will change our lives forever.

As identical twins, we’d normally stick together like glue, but anger and grief gets the better of us and we push and pull in different directions.

Skye wants us to desert our broken family for university. Whilst I want us to postpone our university entry and huddle together at home with our grief-stricken dad and our younger sister, Jade and try to heal our broken hearts and learn to live without our mother.

At an impasse, each of us stubbornly gets our wish.
Finding myself alone and without the other half of me, I’m desperately lonely.

I need a friend.
Someone to talk to.
Someone who understands.
But, when I find that special someone, I know I’ve made a terrible mistake and trusted the wrong person

Diane Saxon’s compelling new thriller will have you questioning who you can trust to keep your family safe.

Holy moly this one is INTENSE! In the very beginning I thought it might be a tad slow. Whoa, was I wrong! It got intense very quickly.

The character development was excellent, maybe a little too good. Some of these characters I didn't really need to know, if you know what I mean. 

This book is dark, and disturbing. So be warned. But it just grips you and won't let you go. Its like when you are watching something horrible but you just can't look away. I could not stop reading.

The descriptions are so vivid. I had a picture of everything in my head. It's like they say "I can't unsee that" this book will now forever be in my brain. I can't unsee it. This is a book that I will be thinking about for a long time.

This is definitely an author I want to read more of.

*** - I do feel like I have to put a content warning - there are about a million triggers in here. It is pretty graphic and disturbing... But I loved it! LOL

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from Rachel's Random Resources -  Thank You!!
