Kindred Hearts by Grace Lowrie
This was a very interesting read for me. It is a book that takes place in England, so getting used to that vocabulary was quite fun. The story involves Natasha (Tasha), and twins, Celeste and Sebastian Walker.
Tasha initially meets the twins when she is relocated to another school and is instantly befriended by Celeste. Tasha is astonished that someone as sophisticated as Celeste Walker would want to be her friend as Tasha was bullied by other students which lead to her school relocation. Tasha and Celeste become best friends and Tasha and Sebastian secretly have deep conversations during this time. Tragedy strikes for the twins and Tasha is suddenly without her best friend.
Ten years later, Celeste and Sebastian have returned to London and a chance meeting between Tasha and Celeste allows them to reunite. The twins, now have fast paced careers, and Tasha is working her way up on the ladder at a museum. It is as if time has been forgotten and Celeste sweeps up Tasha into her world, and Tasha is soon living with Celeste and Sebastian and the relationships grow deeper between the three of them.
There were a lot of interesting twists and turns throughout this book that I didn’t see coming, but that is for you to discover. I loved the way the author showed how Celeste and Sebastian saw Tasha through their eyes when they first meet, as Tasha thought she didn’t need friends. The Epilogue to the book made it absolutely complete.
The perfect escape for those who want to be intrigued, seduced and enthralled – gripping bedtime or holiday reading.
Tasha is living the London dream with her job at the V&A museum, but has neglected her social life – until now.
Sebastian and Celeste – the enigmatic twins from Tasha’s childhood – sweep back into town seducing her with their glamorous lifestyle and intense friendship once again. But the twins have changed in the intervening years; they have secrets and everything is not as perfect as it seems.
As the bond between Tasha and Sebastian develops, Celeste grows increasingly possessive of her best friend. Can Tasha make the right choice when it comes to her heart? Or will the past destroy everything worth saving?
