Mirrorland by Carole Johnstone

Your twin sister that you hadn't seen in 20 years is missing?

Cat couldn't believe it, but she headed to Scotland to the family home even though she didn't want to.

When she arrived, she was very uncomfortable, and she could just feel that her sister was not missing or dead.

Could a twin know that?  If so, how could she know that for sure?  The boat and El had been gone for four days.

We go back and forth in time as we follow Cat and El in their childhood and during the search.

Cat stays in the family home with El's husband Ross - not sure that was a good idea. 

Too many memories and ghosts along with the odd things that are happening while she is in town and in the house.

The house seemed to be a character as you hear about all the rooms and Mirrorland the girls had when they were young.  Mirrorland was actually pretty creepy and wasn't my favorite part of the book.

It took time to connect with the story, but it will have you wondering just what is going on so you will keep reading.

The writing is very descriptive with a creative story line but a little too out there for me. 3/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.


  1. Have you read this book?

    What did you think?

    Thanks for stopping.

  2. I've not read the book but I have been seeing it around a lot. I know they say twins can sense things but something about the summary puts me off. I love that King endorsed it but he endorses so much these days.

    1. It is very well written as I mentioned, but not my cup of tea.

      Thank you for your comment, Ti.

  3. I'm on a waiting list for this one - she's a Kiwi so it's very popular here. Cheers

    1. Enjoy the book when you read it.

      Thanks for your comment, Carole.
