Publisher's Summary

A devastating and unsettling story of a powerful and unshakeable twin bond, Too Close is a gripping psychological thriller full of twists and turns, secrets and lies. For fans of The Twins by Saskia Sarginson.

Cecelia and Sebastian have a connection like no other - more than just brother and sister, they'll go to any lengths to protect each other. Growing up in a bleak old farmhouse, their mother gone and their father violent and abusive, the twins have only each other to keep them alive.

But when the secrets of their mother's disappearance start to emerge, and truth and lies are thrown into question, events take a terrifying turn....

As Cecelia tries to break away from the ties that bind her to her brother, Sebastian is determined that the twins should be together - whatever the costs.

    "Gripping stuff"

    I loved this book so much I listened to this in one day even while cooking and driving. Imogen Church is a fantastic narrator and I look forward to more from this author.

    "Quite entertaining"

    I found this book okay, quite easy listening but it didn't quite do it for me.
    There are some compelling and neurotic characters with some good twists. for me the book lacked any warm characters which would have balanced out the flawed ones. I felt no empathy towards anyone which separated it from a good book to just an okay one. I would however be interested to read a further book by the author .

    "Good read"

    Very enjoyable if a bit dark. One thing that spoiled it a lot for me was the narration, particularly on the male characters. They all spoke irritatingly slow and lethargic ...separating out every word making their sentences drag out enormously. I wish narrators would just use their normal voice when speaking lines of characters in the opposite sex. Apart from that it was gritty and most enjoyable.

    "Intriguing"

    Stunning, staggering, intriguing and unpredictable. Brilliantly written could not put it down. Conjured up lots of emotions a dark read

    "Weird"

    There are too many abbreviated sections of the story for this to grip you. Didn't hold me and do not feel it gave a true insight into any of the characters.

    "A hard read"

    I wouldn't say I enjoyed this book, but I'm glad I've listened to it. It's a very heavy book especially emotionally. I wouldn't say this book is for the faint hearted. I felt emotionally exhausted when it finished.
