The Twinning Murders by Shelley Frome Review



Description via Goodreads
The Twinning Murders is a modern day classic mystery centering on the ventures of Emily Ryder, a thirty-something rambler and tour guide. The story opens just before she embarks on this year's Twinning ritual exchange. It's between her historic New England home and its sister village deep in Dartmoor, a wild upland area in the west of the county of Devon, England. Emily becomes personally involved in a suspicious death.. A few days later, at the Twinning itself, her main client meets the same fate. As Emily's world continues to unravel, and though she has little help, she finds herself compelled to piece together the games being played on both sides of the Atlantic.
My Review:

This book was sent to me via the publisher for a honest and fair review via Pump Up Your Books! This book starts out in Connecticut with the main character Emily getting ready for her trip to England for the Twinning Exchange. Early on you meet Christopher Cooper who succumbs to a miserable death off of a ladder. Emily is very upset about this as Christopher was a close friend of hers. To make things worse Harriet Curtis one of the people going to England has been acting very bizarre. She left for England prior to the others leaving. And has been standoffish to her half-sister Pru and Silas her brother. Add to the mix someone running around named Doc talking about the GDC taking over in Connecticut and what will happen if the GDC takes over. Business that would be lost. Emily's good friend Will tried to find out what killed Christopher Cooper, he stumbles upon questionable circumstances following Christopher Coopers death. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, while parts of it get confusing go back and forth between England and CT, but over all a good story. At this point I got up to page 149 out of a total of 224. I will be looking for more books by this author.
A 4 cup book definitely!
