Publisher's Summary

In Marti Green’s twisting novel of psychological suspense, twin sisters become engaged in a dangerous deception...

Mallory Holcolm is an unfulfilled waitress and aspiring artist living in a Queens boardinghouse when she learns something astonishing about her past: she has an identical twin sister named Charly she never knew existed.

Charly is a Princeton graduate, a respected gallery owner, and an heiress married to her handsome college sweetheart, Ben. Charly got everything she ever wanted. Everything Mallory wanted, too. And now it might be easier than Mallory ever imagined. Because Ben has reasons of his own for wanting to help her.

It begins with his startling proposal. All Mallory has to do is say yes.

But as their devious plan falls into place, piece by piece, Mallory learns more about her sister and herself than she ever meant to - a discovery that comes with an unexpected twist. A chilling deception is about to become a dangerous double cross. And it’s going to change the rules of Ben and Mallory’s game to the very end.

Fast paced, some surprises, a little predictable...

This is a very cleverly written book. I am a fan of Marti Green, whose previous books have all been 5 star legal thrillers (in my opinion).
This book has a very different feel to it than her other books but that might just be perspective.
This is a very easy quick read with some predictability. It moves along at a good clip and is told from different points of view.
This book is about twin sisters separated at birth. One raised by her poor single mother. The other raised by a wealthy adoptive family. The one raised in poverty is approached by her sister's husband who gives her a story of a wicked twin. He enlists her assistance to have her twin murdered and take her place. It's a little Lifetimey but entertaining.
Worth a listen but not as good as Green's legal thrillers.
If you have kindle unlimited this book is FREE!
Dara Rosenberg does an excellent job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I enjoyed The Good Twin!

I've read or listened to all of Marti Green's legal thrillers and enjoyed each without exception. The Good Twin is a clever suspense thriller about two identical twin girls separated at birth. One twin was raised by her single mother and the other was adopted by a very wealthy conventional family. The novel has some interesting plot twists. I considered a 5 star rating but cannot justify it; however The Good Twin is an excellent suspense thriller that I do recommend. Narration by Dara Rosenberg was irritating as the novel began, but quickly improved.

The bad twins!

I finished half the book in one day. The story grabs you and takes you for a fast fun ride with lots of twits and turns to keep you interested in the chase, catch, release and highs and lows of the twins adventures. Enjoyable read!

two thumbs up!

the narrator did a great job, the storyline seem to move steadily, and the fact that it flipped and started giving the story of both twins made for an enjoyable read..

more like a 4.5

I really enjoyed this but these sisters both got on my nerves at separate times. Still, I thought this was a very well thought out plot with a number of twists and not particularly predictable either. Good read. 4.5 stars from me.

A Chick-Lit Book w/a Dark Cloud Hoovering on Top

First and foremost, this is most definitely a chick-lit (drama/romance etc) book but with a few, mild, dark twists— but in my opinion, not enough to consider it a legit mystery/thriller. With that said, I very much enjoy chick-lit books and mystery/thrillers so I was ok with the book. It’s one of those stories that would never happen in real life but for the sake of entertainment you have to just go along with it— and if you do, it will be more interesting. I thought I had the book mapped out and predicted...until part two that is. You may think you’ll be able to guess what will happen, but you won’t guess the way it is executed by the characters, and that was this book’s saving grace. I would only recommend this book if you’re into chick-lit, because otherwise you’ll be either perplexed or rolling your eyes for most of the story. But you never know, you might like it either way.
