"Rachel and Alice are an extremely rare kind of identical twins—so identical that even their aunt and uncle, whom they’ve lived with since their parents passed away, can’t tell them apart. But the sisters are connected in a way that goes well beyond their surfaces: when one experiences pain, the other exhibits the exact same signs of distress. So when one twin mysteriously disappears, the other immediately knows something is wrong—especially when she starts experiencing serious physical traumas, despite the fact that nobody has touched her. As the search commences to find her sister, the twin left behind must rely on their intense bond to uncover the truth. But is there anyone around her she can trust, when everyone could be a suspect? And ultimately, can she even trust herself? Master storyteller Jessica Warman will keep readers guessing when everything they see—and everything they are told—suddenly becomes unreliable in this page-turning literary thriller."
If you had a twin what is the first thing you would do? SWITCH! That's what comes to my mind. For a time being, I can trick people that I am someone else and no one could tell. But, what if something went wrong? Then what?

What really hooked me is the part of switching. I always wondered what it would be like to switch places with someone and no one would be the wiser. Only if things went wrong, I would totally freak out. Just like the twins did. I admit that this plot has me intrigued all the way through. it remain solid yet entertaining.

Now, the plot twist are definitely fun and addicting. Each time I thought I had a hold of what is actually going on, I am slammed by something new! I really enjoyed the emotional roller coaster the author puts the reader through. So many different emotions. There envy, angry, love, and much confusion. The plot twist also allow the reader to take time and be in each of the twins shoes.  The reality of what people think who the  twins are is heart-breaking. Every time, I read a part where the "bad twin" is put down is just makes me cringe.

The ending is even more surprising. After all is said and done, the author pulls another major plot twist. Still, the ending is good and goes extremely well with all that happen.

Beautiful Lies is intensely good! With major plot twists and turns, I couldn't help but be pulled in. Once in the story, you drowned as who is who. The mystery of who was kidnapped with the time passing away fast, I adored this story. Beautiful Lies is a great story!

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy  Reading!

  3. I know if I had a twin I definitely would pull a switch every now and again, I wouldn't be able to resist. I love a story full of twists, so this one is on my list for sure. Can't wait to read this Savy!
