From We're not just siblings; we're twins. We're supposed to be able to read each other's thoughts. Although Eli is a few minutes younger, he always seemed older, always one step ahead.

It turns out that Eli kept many secrets. And he told many lies. So although he was once seen as the golden child-while I stood by as the silent sister-his web of deception led to a guilty verdict for the arson that killed our parents.

Now his thirteen-year sentence has been served, and Eli is free. But we are still bound by a secret. Which is dangerous because he has nothing left to lose, and I have everything.


My Rating: 3 stars out of 5

This story started off strong, gripping the reader and making them wonder just what was going on and what secret Andrea was hiding. However, as the story progressed it became predictable to the point of tedious. In fact, the ending was so obvious that by the time I got to it, I just didn't care. Which was a shame as this story had a lot of potential to be the gripping psychological thriller it claimed to be. 

I do believe there are people who will enjoy this novel (as evidenced by the 4 and 5 star reviews it has already accumulated), however this one was just not for me.

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This has not affected my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.
