Today is my stop on The Silent Twin blog tour and I’m so excited as I’ve been sitting on my review for a few weeks now! Super frustrating when all you want to do is RAAAAAAAAAAAVE about a book! 🙂
The Silent Twin is Caroline Mitchell’s 3rd DC Jennifer Knight book and it is absolutely brilliant! I’ve read, reviewed and loved the first two books in the series so I’m not surprised that The Silent Twin is equally as good as its predecessors.

THE SILENT TWIN BY CAROLINE MITCHELL
About the book (via Goodreads):
I’m alone in the dark, please can you find me …
Nine-year-old twins Abigail and Olivia vow never to be parted. But when Abigail goes missing from Blackwater Farm, DC Jennifer Knight must find her before it’s too late.
Twin sister Olivia has been mute since Abigail’s disappearance. But when she whispers in Jennifer’s ear, Jennifer realises it is Abigail’s voice pleading to be found.
A damp and decaying house set in acres of desolate scrubland, the farm is a place of secrets, old and new – and Jennifer must unravel them all in order to find the lost girl. But could Olivia’s bond with her twin hold the key to finding Abigail? And can Jennifer break through her silence in time to save her sister’s life?
I loved The Silent Twin and I was hooked immediately. It kept me reading late into the night, and as usual, had me jumping out of my skin every time I heard a noise in our house. I’m certain Caroline’s books are the only ones I’ve read that make me feel infinitely creeped out for the duration of reading!!! This feeling increases with each book, as the DC Jennifer Knight series is going from strength to strength.
The tension in the book is palpable right from the outset all the way as it races to a gut clenching finale. I read The Silent Twin in a handful of sittings, so much happens quickly and I just couldn’t stop once I picked it up!!!
The Silent Twin is a book about a missing child, Abigail, who disappeared wile playing hide and seek with her sister on the family farm. The subsequent investigation races at breakneck speed to try and find Abigail. However, as with most families, secrets and lies threaten to derail the investigation at every opportunity.
I think Caroline Mitchell has done a superb job with this book. The characters are excellent, Joanna in particular was so well written, the plot flows brilliantly and the emotions The Silent Twin evoke are second to none. I love DC Knight as a character too, she’s a strong, intelligent woman who isn’t afraid to explore her vulnerability, especially in relation to her abilities as regards the paranormal.
The location in The Silent Twin was a superb addition to the narrative too. It provided an excellently chilling backdrop to a very tense story. It felt like the landscape was cold and unyielding, almost like the characters at times. It was perfect.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Silent Twin, and I am eagerly awaiting the next book from Caroline Mitchell. I gave it an easy 5⭐️ on Goodreads. It’s out now (published by Bookouture) and you can purchase a copy by clicking the link below.
Happy reading 😊
