After their parents divorced, 10-year-old twins Ivy and Iris were split up–Ivy lived with Dad, Iris with Mom. Now, after a tragic accident takes their mom’s life, the twins are reunited and Iris moves in with Ivy and their dad. Devastated over Mom’s death, Iris spends the first few weeks in almost total silence–the only person she will speak to is Ivy. Iris feels her life is over and she doesn’t know what to do. Ivy promises her twin that she can share her life now. After all, they’re sisters. Twins.
It’s a promise that Iris takes seriously. And before long, Ivy’s friends, her life at school, and her boyfriend, Tyler, fall under Iris’s spell. Slowly, Ivy realizes she’s being pushed out of her own life. But she’s just being paranoid, right? And Mom’s accident was . . . just an accident. Right? It’s not like she–or Dad–or Tyler–are in any danger. . .

The Lost by Natasha Preston

The Lost
Author: Natasha Preston
Published: March 26, 2019
304 Pages

Kim’s Rating: 5 stars

Book Description:

In the small town of Aurora, teens go missing all the time. But when one of Piper and Hazel’s classmates disappears, they become determined to find out the truth of what happened to her.

While investigating, they meet three handsome and rich grad students…who kidnap them. The girls are taken to a building in the middle of a privately-owned forest. The building isn’t just designed to keep them locked away—every room is a test in survival. And Piper and Hazel won’t give up without a fight.

Kim’s Review:

I keep comparing Preston’s books to Criminal Minds; I can’t help it, they’re so similar! The Lost might be her most intense yet!

The story is simple, the crime is uncomplicated, but all the detailing and the gritty realism fills in all the gaps and turns the story into a complete book. Teens disappear, Piper gets kidnapped, the boys don’t wear masks or hide from the teens, teens try to find a way out, do the teens escape? Simple, right? Nope!!

The emotions and feelings, and psychology, and physical torture is described in minute detail that you can’t help but sit and consider how you’d respond in the same situation. Being locked in room that gets cold and then hot and back and forth for hours probably sounds worse than it is . . . Until Preston sticks Piper in that room and you end up living it with her! That’s what sells this book so completely. I was so caught up in the nitty gritty, that the book was over before I knew it! While the material is pretty mature, I’d be ok with giving this to teens. I think it would be a great educational tool not only in criminal psychology, but also as a cautionary tale. Anyone who likes crime drama, will love this book!

You Will Be Mine by Natasha Preston

Author: Natasha Preston
Published: February 6, 2018
292 Pages

Reviewed By: Kim
Kim’s Rating: 4  stars

Book Description:

ROSES ARE RED
VIOLETS ARE BLUE
WATCH YOUR BACK
I’M COMING FOR YOU

Lylah and her friends can’t wait to spend a night out together. Partying is the perfect way to let loose from the stress of life and school, and Lylah hopes that hitting the dance floor with Chace, her best friend, will bring them closer together. She’s been crushing on him since they met. If only he thought of her the same way…

The girls are touching up their makeup and the guys are sliding on their coats when the doorbell rings. No one is there. An envelope sits on the doormat. It’s an anonymous note addressed to their friend Sonny. A secret admirer? Maybe. They all laugh it off.

Except Sonny never comes home. And a new note arrives:
YOUR TURN

Kim’s Review:

Preston does it again!

One major note right at the very beginning: Do not look at the last page unless you want to be spoiled! All I did was look at the page number on the last page; I accidentally saw the illustration and I spoiled it for myself and that brought my reading down! I was pretty pissed with myself . . . for a good while.

But aside from that! This was a good mystery. I was still very surprised by the resolution and Preston kept the tension and suspense going throughout the whole book. My only issue was Lylah and her weird attitude. She seemed incredibly contradictory to me, in a really immature way. Sometimes she would be a typical college student but then she’d switch to the traumatized teenager, but then switched to a needy little girl and there was no consistency. Thankfully, it wasn’t so bad that it distracted from the story. The emotions from most of the characters were palpable and I could feel the strain. Preston manages to create stories that would be welcome on Criminal Minds . . . always creepy and chilling. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good thriller!
