The Image of You

The Image of You by Adele Parks
Published by Headline Review
February 2018

Anna and Zoe are twins. Identical in appearance, utterly different in personality, they share a bond so close that nothing - or no one - can rip them apart.
Until Anna meets charismatic Nick.
Anna is trusting, romantic and hopeful; she thinks Nick is perfect.
Zoe is daring, dangerous and extreme; she thinks Nick is a liar.
Zoe has seen Anna betrayed by men before. She'll stop at nothing to discover if Nick is as good as he seems.
Lies may hurt. But honesty can kill.

Ooh now this is a good one.  I literally read it over the weekend, I didn't want to put it down.  Nick (or Gus as he begins) is a bit of a cad and an expert at online dating.  He has many a profile on many a site, and this is where he meets the charmingly naive Anna.  She is not an expert on internet dating, or dating at all if her past is anything to go by, but she instantly falls for Nick's charms.  

There is one person who isn't convinced by Nick and that is Anna's identical twin sister Zoe living back in America.  When Anna fills her in on this amazing man she wants to protect her sister at any cost, and she is going to go to the ends of the earth to prove that Nick isn't the man that Anna thinks he is.

It took me until chapter 40 to actually work out what the twist in the plot was but by then I was turning the pages at lightning speed to find out what the conclusion was going to be.  There are some great characters in here too; Anna is whimsical and sweet and her twin Zoe is as feisty as they come, Nick's parents are the sort you'd want your boyfriend to have and his sister Rachel, well she is a bit of a hard nut to crack!  I'm not going to say much more because I don't want to give the plot away but if you've read any of Adele's other novels then you are sure to love this one, and if you haven't had the pleasure of reading her books before, dive right in and give this a go.  I'm convinced you are going to be enthralled by it!

Happy Reading
