J.S. Lark – The Twins

‘The Twins’ by J.S. Lark is a psychological thriller by an author I have never read before. If there is anything I really love, it is discovering new authors whose work I get immersed in. The Twins is an excellent example of a new author with exactly that!

J.S. Lark

One evening Sarah answers a knock at her door to discover it is her twin sister, Susan who she hasn’t seen in 30 years. Sarah is reluctant to allow Susan in but her daughter, Lucy insists the long lost aunt she doesn’t know comes inside. From here the story begins to unravel, showing us they may be twins, but one is not as good as the other and in this dark twisted story Johnny, Sarah’s husband is caught in the centre.

The story is told from both Sarah and Susan over different timelines also. We see the past and just how close the sisters were, the almost telepathy they had as children. We see how events shaped their lives and we move through the years, swapping perspectives and timelines a lot. This was a little confusing as I wasn’t sure who I was with and when sometimes, but I got over it.

As the story develops we come closer to the event of the estrangement of the sisters and I thought I had it all worked out, until I realise I didn’t.
A book that has you thinking and trying to work it out, to no avail. Skilful writing at it’s best, the author has managed to weave her story so cleverly that the twists and turns lead to misdirection and you are, at times left scratching your head!

A highly recommended read for me for sure. With thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources and NetGalley for the copy of The Twins for me to give you my thoughts today.
