My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars
“She started to lift herself from the pool when something slimy wrapped around her leg, pulling her under the surface.”
This was a YA contemporary mystery story which then developed a bit of a paranormal element.
Sloane and Bri were okay characters, although they didn’t always think things through fully before acting on their ideas, and sometimes didn’t think of something obvious. For example, they decided that they weren’t twins because they had different birthdays, but didn’t consider that maybe one of them was told the wrong birthday, which for me, considering the craziness going on anyway, should have been a consideration.
The storyline in this was about Sloane and Bri meeting each other, trying to find out why they looked identical, and also trying to work out what happened to Sloane’s mother who had died, and where Bri’s mother was who was missing. We also had a bit of a murder mystery going on, and some strange animal deaths.
There was a little bit of romance in this, but not a lot, although a case of mistaken identity turned it into a bit of a love triangle!
The ending to this was okay, but it seemed like it was left really open for further books?
