There is so much I want to say about The Good Twin but I don’t want to spoil it for you guys. I will say your going to want to pre-order or get on the wait list at your local library. This book is perfect for summer reading! This book is a clear case of who really is the villain. I mean they all have their moments and money, greed and betrayal are at the heart of it all, isn’t it always. What was so different and great about The Good Twin is that you really do get 2 sides of a story. You get Mallory the first twin we learn about side of what all went down from her life growing up, finding out she actually had a twin to getting in way over her head into something very wrong and illegal! Then we Charlotte’s aka: Charly’s side of the story. We get to know her and find out how it all went down from her perspective. I liked that part of the multi perspective. I also enjoyed that it the book was split into sections and told in its entirety not the constant back and forth like I’m at a tennis game trying to figure out who side I was reading for that chapter. This really worked for me and I think it will work for other readers as well. Their was a lot of back stabbing, surprises and twist and turns. I kinda figured it all out but then guess what I didn’t the author pulled the rug out and I didn’t see that twist coming. I would give The Good Twin 4 solid stars and it would totally be on my re-read list. There was only 1 thing that I didn’t like and it was the speedy tying up loose ends final chapter. It was good I got closure but it felt so fast after her great job at going in-depth on the character’s life and thoughts. Still a great book and I enjoyed it so much, I was reading every chance I got.
About the book: Mallory Holcolm is an unfulfilled waitress and aspiring artist living in a Queens boardinghouse when she learns something astonishing about her past: she has an identical twin sister named Charly she never knew existed.
Charly is a Princeton graduate, a respected gallery owner, and an heiress married to her handsome college sweetheart, Ben. Charly got everything she ever wanted. Everything Mallory wanted, too. And now it might be easier than Mallory ever imagined. Because Ben has reasons of his own for wanting to help her.
It begins with his startling proposal. All Mallory has to do is say yes.
But as their devious plan falls into place, piece by piece, Mallory learns more about her sister and herself than she ever meant to—a discovery that comes with an unexpected twist. A chilling deception is about to become a dangerous double cross. And it’s going to change the rules of Ben and Mallory’s game to the very end.
