First Born by Will Dean

About the book: 

Publication Date: July 5th

From the acclaimed author of The Last Thing to Burn, a psychological thriller about the dark secrets that emerge when a woman’s twin sister is murdered, with his signature “intense, gripping, taut, terrifying, moving, and brilliant” (Lisa Jewell, #1 New York Times bestselling author) prose.

Sisters. Soulmates. Strangers.

Molly Raven lives a quiet, structured life in London, finding comfort in security and routine. Her identical twin Katie, living in New York, is the exact opposite: outgoing, spontaneous, and adventurous.

But when Molly hears that Katie has died, possibly murdered, she is thrown into unfamiliar territory. As terrifying as it is, she knows she must travel across the ocean and find out what happened. But as she tracks her twin’s final movements, cracks begin to emerge, and she slowly realizes her sister was not who she thought she was and there’s a dangerous web of deceit surrounding the two of them.

My Thoughts 

Katie and Molly are twins πŸ‘―‍♀️…so they must be just alike.. right?! Umm wrong…they are so completely different!

Molly is super quirky… and I do mean quirky.. planning for everything.. walking a straight line… not into anything remotely risky or adventurous.. worry controls her life.😬

Katie is popular, spontaneous, the life of the party..sometimes Molly resents her a bit for this.πŸ₯³πŸ₯‚πŸ₯ƒπŸΊπŸΉ

When Katie goes to the Big Apple 🍎 to college and leaves Molly home in London… Molly is devastated. However nothing prepares her for the phone call… that her sister has been murdered..😳 Buckle up for a wild ride…. this story has just begun!

Wow! This was dark, twisted and original! The first twist hit … and I almost missed it.. because I was like wait.. noooo .. wait.. yes that did just happen was kind of like I thought I heard wrong…. Yet I was reading it! πŸ™„πŸ˜‚πŸ€·‍♀️

Then the plot just got more twisted. This was a definite page turner that I blew through because I just couldn’t put it down.

As it unraveled before my eyes I was completely shocked at the direction it took! Will Dean is a "new to me" author and I can't wait to read his backlist. 

Now apparently I need to get The Last Thing to Burn!!πŸ”₯ Huge shoutout to Emily Bestler Books for my gorgeous gifted copy! 

Will Dean grew up in the East Midlands, living in nine different villages before the age of eighteen. He was a bookish, daydreaming kid who found comfort in stories and nature (and he still does). After studying Law at the LSE, and working in London, he settled in rural Sweden. He built a wooden house in a boggy clearing at the centre of a vast elk forest, and it's from this base that he compulsively reads and writes. He is the author of Dark Pines.
