Birthright Charles Lambert / #Review #BlogTour @inkeditorial @jaimefrost @charles_lambert

Sixteen-year-old Fiona wants for nothing: hers is a life of comfort and privilege. But not of happiness. Her already distant relationship with her mother is stretched further by the sudden death of her beloved father. When she discovers an old newspaper clipping of an unknown woman with a little girl who looks exactly like her, she sees her chance to escape and find her true family.Aided by Patrick, her charming but manipulative boyfriend, she tracks down her sister Maddy, in Rome. And with her, the mother she always dreamed of.
But to Maddy this strange girl wearing her face seems to want more than to reconnect. She seems to be stalking her every move and wants to claim Maddy’s life for her own. Maddy wants nothing to do with this unsettlingly familiar stranger. Unfortunately, those around her have other ideas.
Caught in a game of cat and mouse, Fiona and Maddy are both fascinated and repulsed by one another. But they aren’t the only ones playing and soon the girls must decide who to trust, and who to protect. Will blood prove thicker than water?




What would you do when you when you find a newspaper clipping in one of your mother’s drawers of a girl looking exactly like you with a woman you don’t know. One thing is for sure: the girl isn’t you and you have never seen that woman before…

The resemblance is devastating. She is the spitting image of you. She must be your twin. There is no doubt about that. 

You want to find out more and with a little help of some friends, you discover where she lives and getting to know her and more importantly getting to the bottom of the whole story is a priority for you.

You look so alike, but your lives could have not been more different. One sister reaches out. The other does not want to know. Will they bond anyway or will they continue to live separate lives?

I would not call this book a thriller. For me it’s rather about a family drama with a hint of suspense, a lot of lies an deceit. In the end it’s very hard to point a finger to an honest character. They all have their own agenda and do whatever they can to make it happen.

Is it possible to live a lie and still be happy…?

An entertaining story with a very promising beginning, a lot of pushing and pulling in the middle and a surprising end. 4 stars

Thank you
