Gripping Page Turner My rating: 5/5
Tragedy takes one of the twins, and the remaining family move to Scotland to start afresh. But uncertainty follow them.
A great story, that keeps you guessing to the end, with lots of opportunity to wonder "what would I do in that situation". There are only a few main characters, who are well portrayed and easy to follow; the mother of the twins is grippingly portrayed. The story starts in London, but quickly moves to Scotland, where the story takes place over the space of a month.
Starting afresh living on an island in Scotland is depicted well - both the upsides and the considerable downsides. For a tourist looking for a getaway holiday this is the place to be.
I enjoyed the book from beginning to end - and didn't find it scary (fine to read at bedtime). It has a clear ending, and throughout kept me wanting to read "just a bit more".
