Gripping Psychological Thriller
My rating: 5 out of 5
Following the tragic death of one of their twins the family move to Scotland. Soon the surviving twin starts acting oddly and saying that the identities of her and her twin have been mistaken. The action of this great psychological thriller takes place over the space of a month.
A great story, that keeps you guessing to the end, with lots of opportunity to wonder “what would I do in that situation”. There are only a few main characters, who are well portrayed and easy to follow; the mother of the twins is grippingly portrayed.
The positives and considerable negatives of moving to live on an island in Scotland are depicted well. For a tourist looking for a getaway holiday this is the place to be.
I enjoyed the book from beginning to end – and didn’t find it scary (fine to read at bedtime). It has a clear ending, and throughout kept me wanting to read “just a bit more”.

I can’t wait to read this! I read The Fire Child and really enjoyed it but heard from some people that The Ice Twins is better so it’s definitely on my TBR list! Great review 🙂
I have had this book in my TBR pile for ages, as I was lucky enough to win a lovely new hard back copy as a Goodreads Giveaway competition.
I can’t wait to get to it after reading so many great reviews and ratings, including your own, which confirms what just about everyone else thinks of the story.
Thanks for sharing and have a good weekend 🙂
