Title: The Ice Twins
Author: S. K. Tremayne
Publisher: Harper Collins
Publication Date: January 29th 2015
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?
I’m sorry to say I really didn’t like this one. It sounded so promising and I’d heard good things about it from other reviews, but it just wasn’t for me. I found the characters to be dull and extremely unlikable. I really had to force myself to finish this one, and the only reason I did was because I was on holiday and only had a limited number of books with me. I found both Sarah and Angus to be extremely depressing characters. I know they suffered a great loss, but it is clear when you read the book that they weren’t likeable people before they lost one of their twin daughters. As negative as this review is, I have another of this authors books and will be reading it at some point, as it wasn’t the writing that I disliked, it was just the characters. I’d love to know if any of you have read this one and your thoughts on it. Maybe I just wasn’t in the right mood for it.
