from the back cover:

Paul and Gina Bradley did all they could to create the perfect family. When they discovered they could not have children of their own, they adopted twin girls, intent on giving them a good home. But something was terribly wrong with Angela, one of the twins, and after a terrifying event, Paul and Gina returned five-year-old Angela to St. Sympatica's Orphanage, assured that she would get excellent psychiatric care.

Now, sixteen years lated, the Bradley family is crumbling. Paul and Gina have drifted apart and are only going through the motions of a marriage for Angela's twin, Rachel. But Rachel is beginning to act like a total stranger, and they begin to wonder if she isn't suffering from the same problems that plagued her sister.

When Rachel disappears just after Christmas, Paul and Gina are forced to pull together-for the sake of their family, for their very survival. Because someone has unleashed a vengeful fury on the Bradleys.

If you like books that are a little twisted, this could be for you. A couple adopts twin girls: one is "good", and the other is "evil." The adoptive parents choose to send the "evil" twin back to the orphanage at the age of five. Sixteen years later, that decision comes back to bite them in a big way. It was an interesting read for sure.

Mystery suspense story of twins separated at a young age because one was bad. Then the 'good' twin disappears and the family tries to figure out what happens. Interesting read!

I lost interest in this about midway:

Storyline is good and creepy but there is so much repeat, repeat, repeat and when you have to describe how to make an apple pie? that is just a page filler and this book was loaded with those, I lost interest because I just got fed up with disintegrating marriage, the cheating and the repeat and repeat, etc. For a book with 400 pages this one would've been better if cut down to normal pb size of about 330 pages! and not the constant repeat and moved along with a faster clip and suspense
