Content Warning:- Domestic Abuse, Murder

This was actually surprisingly a good psychological thriller! I simply couldn’t put the book down and got so engrossed into the book from the beginning till the end!

Megan discovers a photo of her estranged identical twin sister Leah on her husband’s phone. Leah Patterson has everything–fame, money and she can get any man she wants. Then Megan kills Leah and is trying to live a double life…until COVID lockdown happens.

The story is told from the multiples of POVs–the first part of the story is told from Megan’s perspective, the second part by Chris, Megan’s psychotic husband, the third part by Leah and the fourth part by Chris’ lawyer Jeremy. So it’s a bit interesting to get into these characters’ heads and see what they are really thinking about and all these emotions, feelings and thoughts. The writing was intense and the author has done a tremendous job drawing the reader into the story and making the reader feel like they are a part of the story! I feel like I am watching a really a good psychological thriller movie as I was reading the book, wondering which of the characters should I trust, who is actually telling the truth and who is the actually victim and killer. I was surprised that this was actually the author’s debut book and she did a good job writing a damn good fast paced thriller.

Yeah, there were so many twists and turns that your mind get confused and the ending was unexpected with a slight cliffhanger in the end. I just felt like I am on a roller coaster ride while reading this book!

Megan is somewhat a sympathetic character in my opinion and she was always under the shadow of her twin sister Leah with whom she did not get along. She also has an abusive marriage with Chris, who seemed to be controlling her. The scenes where Chris is beating her up is a bit disturbing.

Here’s why you should read this book

  • It’s intense and unputdownable
  • Will keep you hooked into the story
  • Full of unexpected twists and turns
  • Fast paced thriller

Overall, this was a good psychological thriller that I was not disappointed at all! Worth five stars!

Many thanks to Netgalley and Hodder and Stoughton for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
