I'd been planning to read The Ice Twins for ages, but for one reason or another it never came to it. Last week however, I started and finished it the same day!
It starts when Sarah's family is already on the brink of falling apart. Sarah's daughter Lydia died the year before in a terrible accident and her twin Kirstie stayed behind. Only moving to a small Scottish Isle in the middle of nowhere can help them. Things are starting to get out of hand when Kirstie starts claiming that she's Lydia and that it was in fact Kirstie that died.
While not nail bitingly suspenseful it was a very enjoyable read. The book really focuses on the family falling apart and the characters can't help but start to question each other in their quest to do right. Not talking is a major point in the story, and while I at times got frustrated (it's the kind of story where a lot could have been saved if only the characters talked earlier) it didn't annoy me to the extend it sometimes does because somehow it made more sense in this case.
I'm not sure I really liked the solution and the ending though. It was rather abrupt and I didn't buy it completely. However, it was a nice read and I will read another book by the same author.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
