This book was, at best, predictable. There were times in the story when characters would first react in one way, then do a complete about face, which ended up bringing in even more completely predictable elements. Overall, the complete story can be guessed after the first few chapters.

Thirty-one years ago in the Bay area, Dr. Alan Forrester is deeply in love with hippie jeweler Claire MacKenzie who reciprocates his feelings. Though his elitist mother objects to this relationship and her Oregonian family does not care what happens to her, Alan marries Claire. Not long afterward, as her father-in-law drives the two generations of couples to a vacation lodge, a deer causes Gavin to swerve, but he misses the animal and stays on the road that is until the second fawn arrives. The subsequent crash leaves Claire as the only survivor giving birth at the site in the midst of chaos. Over three decades later, Claire¿s daughter Paige has become a successful oncologist. To hide a terrible facial birthmark, Gwen St. James becomes so adept that she is the make-up artist for TV news anchors. They meet over a cancer patient of Paige¿s when Gwen provides make-up to give confidence to the senior citizen as she goes home to see her grandchildren. As Paige and Gwen become better acquainted, secrets from that car crash that killed the doctor¿s father are revealed leading to close ties between two women who feel deeply connected, but not sure why. The why seems a stretch yet readers will allow Katherine Stone the lead way because THE OTHER TWIN is an exciting relationship romantic intrigue focusing on the connection between the two females. The story line grips the audience, as the reader wants to know more because the characters make the incident seem real. Though an overabundance of medical terminology is provided, fans will take much pleasure from Ms. Stone¿s engaging novel. Harriet Klausner

On one horrible night, Claire Forrester loses her beloved husband and gives birth. Thirty one years later, the child she had on that stormy night finds herself in a tangled mess of problems. Paige, that daughter, has concealed from her family that she has a deadly medical condition, one that requires her to have a transplant, as soon as possible. On top of that, she has fallen in love with an old friend and met a new friend, Gwen, who has a secret that will rock Paige's reality. Finally, Claire, her beloved mother, is also in a life threatening medical crisis. ***** Ms. Stone's legion of fans will find nothing to be disappointed with in this novel. With a complex plotline and life like situation, this quickly read book will begin your new year with tears and joy. ***** Reviewed by Amanda Killgore.
