A hugely entertaining and thrilling debut that feels as though a blockbuster film is playing out in front of you. Twin sisters Iris and Summer may look identical, but their personalities are a world apart. When Summer asks Iris for help sailing their yacht across the Indian Ocean, Iris has the opportunity to create the life she has always envied her sister. Oh my, where to start! Well, this would make the perfect summer read, as you gallop through, just remember to savour the journey. Rose Carlyle has created a thriller that sits right on the edge of unbelievable. She takes you into secrets and lies, and throws in a humdinger of a plot. As Iris revealed her story, as the tension increased, I found my feelings hesitating, then changing. Iris has the most distinct voice, she is brutally honest, and allows access to the thoughts most wouldn’t allow to surface. As such, she isn’t always likeable, but boy is she captivating. The setting is vibrant, the family drama is dramatic, in other words The Girl in the Mirror is a vivid and entirely stimulating read.

A great debut novel, well written with lots of twists and turns.

Summer and Iris are born identical twins, with only each other able to tell the difference. There is a sight mirror image, a cheekbone slightly higher, a cheek slightly fuller. But internally they are very different. Because they split so late in the womb Iris’ heart is on the right side of her body not the left.
Growing up they were comfortable but their father left for another woman when they were younger and started another family. When he died, Iris overheard a conversation about her father's will. All his money was to go to the first of his grandchildren born in wedlock. All 100million of it.
Iris decides she is going to be the one to get married and pregnant first. Summer is laid back and wants to marry for love and has no interest in the money.... Read Full Review

Wow! What an interesting and gripping book - such a thrilling story about the relationship between twins and just how far that relationship can be tested before it breaks!

This book had me hooked from the beginning. I know that can sounds cliched but the way the author pulled you in straight away with her take on how identical twins see themselves was gripping. This book plays on the emotional ties formed between identical twins and how they perceive themselves in comparison to each other. Hard to believe that one identical twin could feel so inferior to the other but this has shaped Iris's whole life. Throw in the prospect of a rush to get pregnant in order to get financial security for the rest of your life and this makes for a very competitive sibling relationship and a thrilling read....

“The Girl in the Mirror” is the perfect beach read to keep you entertained. Readers will enjoy the escapism of this story, taking you on a journey across the waves to a tropical paradise.

Summer and Iris are identical but mirror twins (Summer’s organs are all in the correct place but Iris’ are on the opposite and wrong side) and they have completely different personalities. When Summer asks Iris to help her husband sail their luxury yacht away from Thailand at short notice, Iris jumps at the chance to sail with handsome Adam. Could this be the chance for Iris to live the life she’s always wanted - the idyllic lifestyle she has secretly coveted from afar? Is the grass greener on the other side for Iris?...
