YOUNG ADULT REVIEW: The Thornthwaite Inheritance - Gareth P Jones

Ovid and Lorelli Thornthwaite have been trying to kill each other for so long that neither twin can remember which act of attempted murder came first. But whoever struck first, trying to take each other's lives is simply what they do. Until one day a lawyer arrives at their house to take stock of its contents, and his accompanying son attracts their attention. Soon a new battle evolves - one in which the twins have to work together to solve the mystery of their parents' deaths. Can Lorelli and Ovid overcome their old animosities, and will they ever get to finish that game of chess?


Having had this title on a back burner for a little while I finally got round to it and was pretty much sucked in by the characters within. I really did love the twins for what they got up to alongside the final emergence of a carer that they deserved by the tales ending. Its creative, its mysterious and above all it’s a title that will endear itself to near enough every reader by bringing something special to each person. Other titles by this author will now automatically move up the TBR list and will hit your screens a lot sooner as this truly was a top notch gem.
