    The Other Twin is a fairly short novel at 250 pages, but it is perfectly formed. The incredibly well created characters lead the reader through an intense, dark and sometimes complicated plot. It?s unsettling at times, it?s dark, it?s tantalising, and it?s complex. It?s also ...

    I think the key to a good audio book is a clear and concise narrator, which The Other Twin has with Kate Rawson. Ms Rawson is very careful to keep up with the ever changing voices of the characters. Next of course is having a meaty storyline to keep you engaged. Again that box is ticke...

    It is hard to know where to start with The Other Twin. The Other Twin is billed as a psychological thriller. In some ways, it works as a dark tale of complicated families and secrets. In other ways, it feels like it should have been a teenage novel with a completely different setting. ...

    The Other Twin ? Simply Mind Blowing. I am not often short of words to sum up a book, but I think I cannot do this debut by LV Hay enough justice, The Other Twin is simply mind blowing! From the setting in Brighton Lucy Hay delivers a contemporary thriller, that is inventive, curr...

    I have come to know Orenda for publishing police procedural novels. Imagine my surprise when I picked up The Other Twin and found something completely different than what I was expecting. Fast paced, character-centric, diverse and binge worthy; I finished this one in a single sitting. ...

    I?m always one for a book with ?twin? in the title so getting a copy of this book was a bit of a no brainer for me! And I have to say that it was so much better than I had been expecting! The twin relationship between Ana and Matthew wasn?t the central focus here but was one pe...

    ?I awake, ravenous, in the early evening. Winter darkness forms at the window. Head banging, I sit up. I?m in a tangle of sheets on the floor; I?ve rolled off my grubby futon. As I reach for my phone, a sharp pain shoots down my neck and through my shoulders. Getting too old for ...

    When you are estranged from your family and get a phone out of the blue you know it isn?t going to be goods news you are going to hear. What Poppy heard was the last thing she could have ever imagined happening, her sister India was dead and how she died was even more unbelievable. I...

    First of all, how about we take the time to look at that cover and bask in the air of mystery it brings. ?You shouldn?t judge a book by its cover!!!? How many of us have spent our lives listening to that and flashback to when you were a child and presumed that this was actu...

    If I had to describe this book with a single word it would be relevant. I found The Other Twin to be one of the most timely fictional stories I have read in 2017 due to a plethora of reasons. Somehow I was unaware that this was Lucy?s debut novel, and once I discovered that little ti...

    This is going to be a very difficult review to write as there is so much I want to say but I?m fearful of giving away the plot. With The Other Twin Hay has written a topical thriller that is written with great skill and understanding. When Poppy Wade?s half-sister India falls to...

    Personally, I thought The Other Twin was a really refreshing debut novel by LV Hay. So what?s it about? Poppy is called home because her sister, India, has committed suicide. Once close, the sisters have not seen each in four years. While returning to home, Poppy just can?t...

    The Other Twin is a deliciously dark, sexy, and devious debut by L.V. Hay. I was so excited to get my hands on a copy because after reading and reviewing so many thrillers, I really wanted to venture out and read something different. The Other Twin is a very profound novel that not...
