**My Book Of The Month** April 2016

image

I can’t believe we are in May already, it doesn’t seem five minutes since we celebrated Christmas! So for me it’s time to choose my book of the month for April. The gold coffee cup award is chosen by myself at the beginning of every month, for the previous month. I have also added a new feature to this post, and will include books that I would highly recommend from my previous months reading.

The Gold Coffee Cup Award is a  very prestigious award (well I think so anyway!) and will be presented (reality wise anyway) to the author/book that I found outstanding for that month, and would possibly have given a higher rating than a 5 star review, if I could.

Again I have read some outstanding books this month, but my book of the month had the “extra factor” it was compelling, dark with an exceptional plot and I really didn’t want to put it down. So with no further ado and a drum roll the book I have chosen for April 2016 book of the month is………

The Silent Twin by Caroline Mitchell

Book description

Nine-year-old twins Abigail and Olivia vow never to be parted. But when Abigail goes missing from Blackwater Farm, DC Jennifer Knight must find her before it’s too late.

Twin sister Olivia has been mute since Abigail’s disappearance. But when she whispers in Jennifer’s ear, Jennifer realises it is Abigail’s voice pleading to be found.

A damp and decaying house set in acres of desolate scrubland, the farm is a place of secrets, old and new – and Jennifer must unravel them all in order to find the lost girl. But could Olivia’s bond with her twin hold the key to finding Abigail? And can Jennifer break through her silence in time to save her sister.

Apologises to any author whose book I read in April, and didn’t make it to my book of the month post, I enjoyed all the books I read, but for me The Silent Twin was  particularly outstanding.
