The Ice Twins by S.K. Tremayne

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, Sarah finds herself tortured by the past–what really happened on that fateful day one of her daughters died?

“Which one is me, Mummy?”
“Which one is me? Mummy? Which one?”
Oh, help. Oh, God. This is unbearable: because I have no answer. The truth is, I do not know. I literally cannot distinguish between them; in this photo, there are no visual clues. Should I lie? What if I get it wrong?

Can you imagine the pain of losing a child? Can you imagine the agony of not knowing which child you buried? Can you imagine the turmoil it would cause if you thought your child and/or spouse was losing their mind? Meet Sarah and Angus from The Ice Twins.

I could tell from the synopsis that The Ice Twins was going to be one heck of a ride. It is hard to put into words the complexity of this book. There are many layers from grieving the loss of a child, the connection between identical twins, and mental health issues just to name a few. Parts of this book are downright creepy and chilling to the bone.

Tremayne’s writing style is vivid and quite descriptive. I have never been to Scotland, but I could clearly visualize the Moorcraft’s home and what their life was like. The Ice Twins is truly a thriller that kept me completely engaged because each page was better than the previous one. This was an exceptional debut and I look forward to reading more from Tremayne.

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of The Ice Twins in exchange for an honest review.
