ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- When I started in on this, the bold and brash tone of the narrator, Iris Carmichael, took me by surprise. Who is this woman? What a piece of work! Iris is one half of the Carmichael twins, potential heirs to the Carmichael fortune. Things for Iris are not going to plan and she envies her sister's life with her perfect marriage, and despite being an identical twin, Iris knows she's not built in the same way as her sunny, easygoing sister, Summer.

As rock solid as the other 'Girls' (Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train), this is an absolutely engrossing read - a psych-thriller cocktail with a dash of Jekyll and Hyde and a garnish of Dynasty and Dallas (or Succession and Grand Hotel). A movie is on the way but by then you will know everything. EVERYTHING. Craig Kirchner


Identical twins only look the same...

Beautiful twin sisters Iris and Summer are startlingly alike, but beyond what the eye can see lies a darkness that sets them apart. Cynical and insecure, Iris has long been envious of open-hearted Summer's seemingly never-ending good fortune, including her perfect husband, Adam.

Called to Thailand to help sail the family yacht to the Seychelles, Iris nurtures her own secret hopes for what might happen on the journey. But when she unexpectedly finds herself alone in the middle of the Indian Ocean, everything changes.

Now is her chance to take what she's always wanted - the idyllic life she's always coveted. But just how far will she go to get the life she's dreamed about? And how will she make sure no one discovers the truth?

Written with the chilling suspense of The Girl on the Train and Before I Go to Sleep, The Girl in the Mirror is an addictive thriller about greed, lust, secrets and deadly lies.
