Amazon // Goodreads


Mallory Holcolm is an unfulfilled waitress and aspiring artist living in a Queens boardinghouse when she learns something astonishing about her past: she has an identical twin sister named Charly she never knew existed.

Charly is a Princeton graduate, a respected gallery owner, and an heiress married to her handsome college sweetheart, Ben. Charly got everything she ever wanted. Everything Mallory wanted, too. And now it might be easier than Mallory ever imagined. Because Ben has reasons of his own for wanting to help her.

It begins with his startling proposal. All Mallory has to do is say yes.

But as their devious plan falls into place, piece by piece, Mallory learns more about her sister and herself than she ever meant to—a discovery that comes with an unexpected twist. A chilling deception is about to become a dangerous double cross. And it’s going to change the rules of Ben and Mallory’s game to the very end.

The Good Twin – Review

Two minutes is all it takes to change the course of someone’s life.

I definitely enjoyed this book! It kept me on the edge of my seat. I picked it up to read for 10 minutes before bed, and guess what happened? Yep, I ended up finishing the book two hours later. 

Mallory is either a hit or miss character. She draws you in with her sad tale. The further you get into it, the more you realize nothing is as it seems. I didn’t like Ben at all; there was nothing redeeming about him. Charly was an interesting character as well. An awful picture is painted about her, but just like Mallory, the further you get into it, the more you know. I would have really liked to see stronger characters. In many ways, they just fell flat for me.

The three characters told a suspenseful tale of twins and marriage. There were lies and deception at every turn, there was not a clear villain and no clear hero. You never know what is lurking behind closed doors.

Overall, this was a good thriller. I enjoyed certain aspects more than others, but it was definitely a page-turner. I had to see what happened next!
