Three new novels – Rose Carlyle’s The Girl in the Mirror, Sally Hepworth’s The Good Sister and Sonya Bates’ Inheritance of Secrets – all explore sisters who are variously sinister, secretive or strange, especially when they happen to be twins. The authors of these new books will reveal all in an online conversation with Maggie Baron, meanwhile we will reveal a little bit more right here.
Twisted Twins, Twisted Sisters, Twisted Crimes
The twins in The Girl in the Mirror, Rose’s debut crime novel, are identical and beautiful, but beyond what the eye can see lies a darkness that sets them apart. Once a crazy inheritance and a boat full of secrets is added to the mix, their lives spiral out of control.
The twins in Sally’s seventh novel, The Good Sister, are not identical but are nevertheless deeply connected. They eat together three nights a week and one sister offers to have a baby for the other. But the mission shakes the foundations of both lives and stirs up dark secrets from the past, not to mention murderous impulses.
The sisters in Sonya’s debut novel, The Inheritance of Secrets, aren’t twins! They are estranged sisters who come together in a time of crisis. One is a successful writer, the other is a recovering addict. Their relationship is one of give and take but the murder of their World War II grandparents throws them into a situation where only trust in each other will get them through, but it’s the one thing they don’t have.
