  • Mysterious and thrilling

    Teenage Twins Bel and Rose Enright have had a tough time of late. Their mother has recently died and they have been forced to move across the country to live with their Grandmother who they haven’t seen since their dad died when they were little. Their Grandmother is the sort of woman who not only has a lot of money but a reputation to uphold and so sends the girls off to the prestigious boarding school that has seen many members of her family attend – Odell. The school though doesn’t have the best reputation of late after a previous teacher let the pupils do what they wanted, so to combat the problem two new teachers have been brought in to sort the place out – Sarah and Heath Donovon. Whilst Bel is popular and beautiful she’s not exactly academic and doesn’t want to attend Odell. Rose is all for getting a better education and doing well as she is very intelligent. The girls are complete opposites and soon the cracks appear in their relationship. Bel gets in with the wrong crowd and Rose wants to forget she has a sister. Surely though their squabbling wouldn’t lead to one murdering the other. But which girl is dead and is the other really the killer? She was the Quiet one is a psychological thriller that really plays with your mind. From the beginning, you know that one of the twins has been killed and the other is accused of her murder, however, it will take all your sleuthing to work out which one is dead and why. Given the title you would expect to be able to work it out but they are both quiet in their own way so that wasn’t really that handy in the end. At times I thought I knew and then it was like the author had thrown in a few red herrings just to lead me down the wrong path. The book opens with one of the twins held in the infirmary accuse of murder and then jumps back in time to the September before and the death of the girl’s mother. Throughout the book, you get to see both sides of the girl’s stories as well as sections from the police investigation into the murder and chapters told from the POV of both Sarah and Heath. The book has plenty of subplots that weave their way into the main and the characters were all fascinating to read about. As the plot unfolded towards the big reveal I was a little shocked and quite relieved to see I hadn’t worked everything out.

    Thanks for your feedback!
