This book surprised me in multiple places. I was completely taken in by the author!
Molly was born a few minutes behind her twin, Katie (KT). She has always felt inferior to her socially exciting sister, so when Katie left to go to NY and attend Columbia with a special award, Molly stays behind in London. Then, Molly receives a phone call from her parents notifying her that Katie is dead. Shocked, Molly flies to NY to be there for her parents and to investigate the murder.
Then, everything becomes very mysterious. As Molly digs into Katie's activities in NY, she finds out about her boyfriend, her professor, her close friend, and the man who gave her the award to attend Columbia. And, nothing, NOTHING is what you think! ( )

First Born by Will Dean
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

#FirstLine - I am half a person.

I enjoy thrillers with twists, turns and unpredictable plots. I love outrageously awesome stories that make me uneasy and unsure what is going to happen. This story had all those things and more! I think if you like to be entertained and lose track of time, this is the story for you!!! ( )

New York, London, twins, a murder, and many questions.

Molly and Katie Raven were identical twins but couldn't be more different.

They lived on two different sides of the ocean and had two very different personalities.

Molly was paranoid and an introvert, and Katie was outgoing and not afraid to do anything.

When Molly gets the call from her parents who are visiting Katie in New York that her sister is dead, her life falls apart.

Along with being paranoid and an introvert, Molly is deathly afraid of everything, worries about everything, and is especially afraid of flying.

How can she fly to New York when she hates flying and knows nothing about the city except what Katie told her? She has to go, though. Her parents need her.

We follow the investigation and learn of financial problems Molly's parents have.

Will that have an impact on the investigation, and will the NYC police continue with their investigation once the Ravens go back to London?

Molly isn’t sure they will and wants to remain in NYC to investigate too, but she does more than investigate.

FIRST BORN is twisty, so good, and a read you won’t be able to put down.

There is an undertone of mistrust with each character, and that includes Katie's parents and her sister, Molly.

There was a zinger at the end of one of the chapters that will have you saying what and have you rethinking who you think killed Katie.

You will keep changing your mind about who the murderer is.

A very clever story line with some bizarre and unbelievable happenings but a story line that will keep you turning the pages.

The ending is another surprise. 5/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review. ( )

Molly and Kate are twins. They have been so close their whole lives and they are completely different. Molly is an introvert and basically scared of everything. Kate is outgoing and loves life and friends. Kate has moved to NYC to go to school. But, something terrible happens. Kate is murdered! So, Molly flies to NYC to help figure out exactly what happened. However, things change and Molly ends up with a killer on her tail…or does she!

A master of deceit and design! This story will have you reeling and guessing. What the crap just happened?!?!

There is so much I want to say about this book. BUT! I have to be careful because I do not want to give anything away…let’s just say…YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK! It is a master of disguise! I loved the mystery and I enjoyed Molly! …that’s it…that is all I am going to say! And if you know me…I am biting my tongue. I want to tell y’all so badly!

Need a book which keeps you guessing on the what, when where and WHY! THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review. ( )

I really enjoyed Will Dean's previous book, The Last Thing to Burn. He has just released a new title - First Born.

Molly Raven. Katie Raven. Identical twins. Ah, when twins are involved it seems like there's a suspense story just waiting to be uncovered. Molly lives in Britain close to her parents. Katie has travelled to the US to go to school. The girls are very different from each other though. Molly worries, is introverted, but quite smart. Katie is the extrovert and is more daring.

But..... and this is not a spoiler as it's announced in the first few pages... Katie is dead, perhaps murdered. Molly and her parents fly to New York to find out more. Molly takes it upon her self to start an investigation of her own. The book is told by Molly.

I thought Molly was an unusual lead character. I found her and her parents to be somewhat, well, odd in their actions and discussions. Everything is staccato - short sentences, off kilter conversations and more. The parents have spoken to the police, but don't really have any answers to give Molly. When the detective in charge meets with Molly, it's the same side stepping. Would a family be satisfied with this wait and see attitude? The investigation seemed almost sketchy to me. Molly meets another person looking into the murder and she embraces him on face value. Which doesn't match her OCD tendencies that have her preparing for any and all danger that might come her way.

Just as awkward for me was the investigation that Molly mounts. It continues on much longer than would be realistic and the interactions and situations that Molly forces are just as unbelievable for me. There is, of course, a twist involved. It was telegraphed much earlier in the book than I expected to see it. And therefore the ending seemed almost tacked on. And it too, was over the top.

Sorry to say, that this was just an okay read for me. ( )
