Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of The Girl on the Train comes the UK best seller The Ice Twins, a terrifying psychological thriller with a twisting plot worthy of Gillian Flynn.
One of Sarah's daughters died. But can she be sure which one?
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, they are forced to confront what really happened on that fateful day.

Interesting Story--Too Much Rumination

This book really only becomes chilling at the very end. Otherwise, it's a story about miscommunication that makes the reader want to shriek to the protagonists, "Just say what you mean!" None of the main characters is especially sypathetic except the dog.
The pace can be maddeningly glacial, largely because the central character spends an enormous amount of time paraphrasing her thoughts.
The narration is good.

Good read that just missed being brilliant

Maybe this is one of those rare books that's better read than listened to. Whatever the reason, in spite of terrific narration ( wonderful accents) and evocative descriptive prose, the dialog thwarted me at every turn. Why not simply embrace the supernatural angle and go with that?? I found I had to repeat sections often to keep track of which twin was "active". Probably worth another listen down the road sometime.
