Publisher's Summary

A tragic kidnapping... the mystery of twin telepathy... a mother's search for a child, presumed dead.

Hours after throwing a third birthday party for their twins Kathy and Kelly in their Connecticut home, Margaret and Steve Frawley return home from a dinner in New York to discover the police in the house, their daughters missing, and an eight million dollar ransom note. The Frawleys meet the kidnapper's demands, but the abandoned car they're led to contains only Kelly, the body of the driver, and a suicide note, saying he had inadvertently killed Kathy and dumped her body in the ocean.

At the private memorial Mass for Kathy, Kelly tugs Margaret's arm and says that her sister Kathy "wants to come home right now." More unexplainable occurrences indicate that Kelly is in touch with Kathy, but no one except Margaret believes that Kathy is still alive. As Kelly's warnings become increasingly specific and alarming, however, FBI agents set out on a search for the kidnappers as Kathy's life hangs by a thread.

Delving into the well-documented but still unexplained phenomenon of twin telepathy, worldwide #1 best seller Mary Higgins Clark takes us deep into the minds of her characters while lifting us to the heights of suspense.

    Love books! Classics and lighter fiction, mysteries (not too violent please :-). And selective non-fiction--whatever takes my fancy.

    "A good story--will hold your interest throughout"

    This is a good mystery, written by Mary Higgins Clark, who is certainly one of the greats in this genre. This story is about a set of twins who are kidnapped, but only one gets rescued, leading to interesting plot developments that arise partly out of the mother's trust that the safe twin can feel what the other is going through and keep hope alive for finding her. Mostly it is unremarkable in other ways, a bit predictable on most levels.

    However, what made it greatly interesting to me is that it was sort of a story about how often people see things or have encounters that leave them briefly wondering, then quickly dismiss them as unimportant. This entire book seemed to be circling around the numerous ways alert people misread signals and situations, passed off important clues as trivial events. It is a reminder, especially in these times, that we all probably should be more aware of what seems odd or suspicious, and not ignore unusual things we observe. That appeared to be a central part of this story--things happening that people chose to interpret as innocent events, thus prolonging the crisis.

    MHC is an excellent mystery writer. I thought the narrator got off to a bad start, but quickly improved, making the book an overall good listening experience.

    Story
    "A Good Plot"
    Would you listen to Two Little Girls in Blue again? Why?

    Any parent's dread is to have their child kidnapped, but to have two missing is a horror. The kidnappers are callous and have no scruples. They even turn on each other. Just read or hear it to find out just how.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the unusual twists in the story.


    Which character – as performed by Jan Maxwell – was your favorite?

    Angie Aims (Mona) was the most pitiful character.
    Margaret was the wise mother who really knew her children.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Kidnapping gone amok.

    "A good traveling story."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a good story for a short trip, which I define as around 3 hours each way. You can miss a little without having to backup. It is easy to listen to, but does not require constant concentration.

    "Two Little Girls in Blue"

    I loved this story. The two little girls in such a dangerous situation was riveting to me. The narrator did a great job in doing the voices that I could visualize each character that she portrayed. Hip hip hooray for the author Mary Higgins Clark . I'm definitely a fan!!!

    Story
    "Had to abandon this one"

    I lasted about 2 hours and had to abandon this one. I didn't care for the narration, the way the story jumped around, or the writing style. Instead of writing, for instance:

    He thought back to last Tuesday, when he had spent the day hanging out with friends.

    She writes like:

    He remembered last Tuesday. "I spent the day hanging out with friends and had a great time", he thought.

    I probably didn't do a very good job of explaining that, but if you listen you will understand what I mean and may find it as annoying as I did.

    Obviously I am the one-off as everyone else seemed to enjoy it, so take this for what it's worth.

    "Good Story Line, But..."

    I had heard of Mary Higgins Clark before, but this is my first read/listen to one of her books. I have to say I was disappointed. For such a popular and accomplished author, I found her writing to be sub-par. So, although the plot was interesting and the book suspenseful, I can't help but thinking that the novel would have been much better if the story line was taken and written by a different author.

    The narrator was not great. However, in my listening experience, female narrators seldom are. There have been a few female narrators that I've listened to that were outstanding, but not many. (By the way, my wife feels the same way on this.)

    Now I've probably got not only all MHC fans upset with me, but all women, too. Sorry about that, but I'm just sharing my honest opinions.

    "EDGE OF MY SEAT"

    I had read this in hard back quite some time back so it was refreshing to hear the book and it was even better than I remembered! It actually came to life from the story line to the characters especially the children.

    The bad guys are bad...not particularly violent which was relieving.

    This was a very well written story from beginning to end. Highly recommended!

    ++Love Jan Maxwell also!!
