The Ice Twins by S.K. Tremayne

Title: The Ice Twins
Author: S.K. Tremayne
Pages: 306
Rating: 5/5

Synopsis from Goodreads:
One of Sarah's daughters died. But can she be sure which one? A year after one of their identical twin daughters, Lydia, dies in an accident, Angus and Sarah Moorcroft 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, they are forced to confront what really happened on that fateful day.

I picked up this book due to the hard subject matter. Not only was it hard to read about, but it was very intriguing. I learned a lot about identical twins that I hadn't known before I opened this book previously. This book is a sneaky thriller. At first you think it's just about a grieving mother, a husband who can't come to terms with his daughter's death, and an extremely confused little girl who has lost her identical twin sister. No. This book is so much more than just that. It'll pull you in with all of the little subtle secrets it slowly gives you, keeping you turning page after page.
Another thing I really loved about this book was the incorporation of the Gaelic language as well as the vivid imagery that came with the description of the uninhabited island that the family ended up moving to. It all just sounded so beautiful yet so, so lonely. 5/5 stars!

DISCLAIMER: I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This does not sway my opinions in any way.
