My Review
The Twins is a dark, twisty thriller that will take readers on a ride into the dark depths of a person's soul. 
The story follows twins Sarah and Susan. Sarah seems to have it all: a loving husband, a daughter, and a happy home. But when Susan shows up after years apart, Sarah's world comes crumbling down. You see, Susan is the "bad" twin. Both girls grew up super close, doing everything together. They were so close, they were basically one person. But then something happens, and Sarah knows, even though she can't remember, that Susan is evil and she needs to stay away. Susan isn't about to give up on being part of her sister's life again, though, and she will stop at nothing to get what she feels she rightfully deserves. 
I did find this book a little slow at first, and it took me some time to get into it, but once it got going, it was definitely a tense read. The story does change from the past to the present, and it doesn't always come across clearly when it does change. But once you figure out what period of time you're reading, it's easier to follow along with. 
There are some triggers within these pages, like rape and violence towards a child. If you're a more sensitive reader, you may want to proceed with caution while reading.
As a twin myself (fraternal, not identical), I was intrigued by the dynamic between Susan and Sarah. I never really had that deep connection with my own twin. We were basically two different people who just happened to share the same birthday one minute apart. It was definitely fascinating to see how these two characters were written and brought to life. 
There's also a bit of a twist at the end. You may think you know where things are going, but you may just have to think again. 
Overall, not a bad read. I liked it, even though it did take me a little bit to get into. 
4 stars.
