‘The Twins’ by J.S. Lark #BookReview

Susan and Sarah. Sisters. Best friends.

Nothing could break them apart.

Until they meet him.

And he can only choose one…

Now Susan is back. Determined to reclaim everything Sarah has taken from her.
Her home, her husband…her life?

This novel has a really interesting and clever premise. It is well-written and gripping at times. I felt that the parts of the novel set in the twins’ childhood was the strongest part of the book – tough to read at times, but very well drawn and very sympathetic to two little girls who are let down by just about everyone.

The present day sections didn’t work so well for me. I found it hard to like Jonny, and was frustrated that Sarah didn’t speak up. I also wasn’t completely convinced by the final plot twist and whether it was really feasible.

But a good read, and I’d definitely read more by this author.
