There have been several psychological suspense novels written about the curse of being a twin, especially an identical one. These usually run along the lines that twins are basically two of the same person, consciously or unconsciously forced by parents to eat, think, and dress alike, until one rebels and tragedy occurs. The Girl in the Mirror follows that thesis only so far...The Girl in the Mirror is a chilling story of identity and what happens when a person’s self-reality is voluntarily submerged with another’s.
There are some books out there (The Girl in the Mirror being one of them) that the best 'review' is someone handing you the book and just saying, 'trust me!' It is a story you will absolutely be wrapped up in from page one ... Most important of all, for me, in a thriller is the ability to give the reader that 'audible gasp moment.' Like Clare Mackintosh’s I Let You Go, or The Wife Between Us from Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, Rose Carlyle is the latest addition to the list of authors who can give readers that shocking gasp-out-loud moment that thriller lovers can’t get enough of!
