The Ice Twins By S. K. Tremayne – Book Review #13

This is another charity shop find. I was stocking the shelves ready for the weekend and for some reason, The Ice Twins caught my eye.

The Ice Twins

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

A year after one of their identical twin daughters, Lydia, dies in an accident, Angus and Sarah Moorcraft move to the tiny Scottish island Angus inherited from his grandmother, hoping to put together the pieces of their shattered lives.

But when their surviving daughter, Kirstie, claims they have mistaken her identity—that she, in fact, is Lydia—their world comes crashing down once again.

As winter encroaches, Angus is forced to travel away from the island for work, Sarah is feeling isolated, and Kirstie (or is it Lydia?) is growing more disturbed. When a violent storm leaves Sarah and her daughter stranded, Sarah finds herself tortured by the past—what really happened on that fateful day one of her daughters died?

My Thoughts

I found myself wishing we hadn’t started decorating the front room because I would have had more time to read if we hadn’t!
Something grabbed me and dragged me right into this story. I found it hard to put down. It’s hard to imagine having twins and not having any way to find out which one had died.

I loved the idea of moving to a remote Scottish island. It would be Ant’s and my idea of heaven but only when the kids have grown up and moved out!

The ending took me a bit by surprise but I won’t say anything else because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone.
