I was happy to receive this book, as the premise sounded really good, yet between reading the blurb and the first couple of chapters, it seemed quite obvious to me what was going to happen in this book. I pressed on anyway, hoping for a killer twist, but unfortunately it was not to be. The book sees Ellie, a happily married corporate high-flyer, having to deal with her identical twin sister coming to live with her. Tia, however, is slightly "simple" (Ellie's words, not mine), and has been living in assisted living, but has to go elsewhere when the shelter she is in closes. Ellie can't find anything similar for her, so has to let her come to her home. I wont go into any further details as I don't want to give away the plot to any that might want to read it, but really, it's so transparent even someone as "simple" as Tia could work it out quickly. It's an ok, quick read, yet there is no suspense and it definitely isn't thrilling. If you're looking for edge of your seat nail biters, it's probably best to look elsewhere. 2.5 stars rounded up. My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Wow, this was good!! I was completely hooked on this story, even though I had guessed the twists. It was a book that I just had to keep reading. The characters were intriguing, some of their choices and decisions highly questionable and out there. But still I was sucked in and needed to know the ending.
Ellie and Tia are identical twins. End of similarities. Ellie is successful and happily married to Will and about to start a family. Tia is a bit slower and has been living in an institution for most of her life. When the institute closes down Ellie and Will have little chocked but she move Tia in with them, and then their lives start to change forever. Not saying anymore so I don't give anything away.. but so much more happens and you have to read this book!
