First We Take Manhattan by Colette Caddle

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Hard working millinery twins are rewarded when one of their hats makes a sensation at a Bafta ceremony. Their fortunes are made. Then one disappears leaving the other devastated, the business begins to fail and the family step in to help the remaining twin. Enter new staff member, Krystie, a ray of sunshine in a sad situation, but she brings startling information. This is part mystery, part family drama, a tale to keep you guessing as interlinking storylines are drip-fed to us, making you turn the pages compulsively. Caddle is consistently good. This is one of her best.

If you like Colette Caddle you might also like to read books by Carole Matthews, Ciara Geraghty and Sheila O'Flanagan.
