Love a thriller with a twist in the tale. And in Sarah Bonner’s Her Perfect Twin, the twist hits you halfway through the book … so unexpected and fast it could give you whiplash. Leah has everything she’s ever wanted … fame, fortune, and freedom to do what she wants. But she’s always wanted everything her identical twin sister Megan has, too.
And when Megan snoops on her husband’s phone and finds revealing, provocative photographs of her estranged sister, it appears Leigh’s after her husband, as well. What follows is murder, a cover-up, secrets, abusive relationships and a new romance, and a set-back due to a Covid lockdown. And then there’s another wowza twist. This is Sarah’s first novel … we can’t wait for the next one. Brilliant! Hodder & Stoughton. This, and all the Book Club reads, available at exclusivebooks.co.za
