A review of the mystery book the third twin

Amazon Book Depository Synopsis: It's Pretty Little Liars meets Revenge in this edge-of-your-seat thriller with a shocking twist. When they were little, Lexi and her identical twin, Ava, made up a third sister, Alicia. Alicia was always to blame for everything. The game is all grown up now that the girls are seniors. They use Alicia as their cover to go out with boys who are hot but not exactly dating material. Boys they'd never, ever be with in real life. Now one of the guys Alicia went out with has turned up dead, and Lexi wants to stop the game for good.

As coincidences start piling up, Ava insists that if they follow the rules for being Alicia, everything will be fine. But when another boy is killed, the DNA evidence and surveillance photos point to only one suspect: The girl who doesn't exist. As she runs from the cops, Lexi has to find the truth before another boy is murdered.

Because either Ava is a killer…or Alicia is real. And oh my gods was it as good as I expected! When twins Alexa Lexi and Ava were little, they made up their "third twin" Alicia to take the blame for the mischief they got themselves into.

Now, years later, the girls decided to bring back Alicia for the sole purpose of dating guys that would be otherwise deemed undateable to the girls. You know, with no strings attached. But things only get worse from there. All evidence points to Alicia as the killer, and it doesn't help the she's been showing up in places neither Ava or Lexi have been and talking to people the girls had never seen before. I love a good murder mystery, and this mystery was SO good I actually didn't figure out who the killer was until the very, very end as it should be!

I'm always disappointed when I guess correctly way ahead of time.

But The Third Twin did such a fantastic job of weaving this mystery into the story, leaving us little morsels in the beginning that would make us go "Well, duh! And as I said, I seriously had no idea who the killer was, but when I found. I just sat there, mouth agape, thinking, "Why? Before I even started reading this, I was actually kinda hoping for something supernatural. You know, maybe a Tulpa basically something, that if you think hard enough about it, it will become real! That would be so cool!

But I will neither confirm nor deny this idea ; I did love the twist they threw in about the "third twin". It actually all makes sense! I loved all the diverse characters we got to meet. I especially loved Eli and Zane! Lexi went out with Eli as Alicia a couple if times and he was just so funny and really sweet!

I was so sad when. And Zane is Lexi's childhood-friend-turned-maybe-love-interest, whom I adored even more! He was so sweet and protective and always there to help Lexi when she needed it. The best part was, this wasn't a love triangle! D You guys know how much I hate thosebut somehow the author made a review of the mystery book the third twin work so we wouldn't really have to deal with that and I was just SO happy! Filled with mystery and intrigue, this crazy-amazing book was a thrilling adventure you can't not give a try!
