Would life be better without Ali? Probably. At least then people might think about Morgan. Ali's always gotten everything -- she doesn't even realize how much Morgan resents her.
Ali also doesn't realize that when she shuts Morgan out entirely, she will unleash a chain of events that show just how dangerous the underside of love really is. As their lives spin toward something neither one of them can control, a terrifying crime reveals how those who know us best can destroy us...or save us.

** I received an advanced readers copy from Sourcebook via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**
This book was suffering a bit of an identity crisis to me. I couldn't decide if it was a suspense, family drama, love story or thriller. At first, this was part of the appeal and kept me turning the pages. In fact, I was flying through them. As the story progressed I could see that it wasn't getting any clearer and I started to find it somewhat frustrating. There were just too many sub plots for my liking and by the time I was done I wasn't quite sure what I read.
As a twin myself I was most interested in Ali and Morgan and their dynamic. To say that it was disturbing and dysfunctional would be putting it mildly. I really disliked Morgan but if I am being honest, neither one of them were very likeable. They were nasty and hateful to each other and there was a jealousy that I couldn't even begin to understand. In fact, I would be hard pressed to find a character in this book that I could say was likeable.
I thought that the writing was fine but it was the story that wasn't that exceptional. It had its entertainment value but didn't deliver anything extraordinary that I will remember a few books from now. In the end I guess I would classify it as a family drama and a journey of personal growth with a side of lies, deceit and mystery??
