Rachel and Alice are an extremely rare kind of identical twins-so identical that even their aunt and uncle, whom they've lived with since their parents passed away, can't tell them apart. But the sisters are connected in a way that goes well beyond their surfaces: when one experiences pain, the other exhibits the exact same signs of distress. So when one twin mysteriously disappears, the other immediately knows something is wrong-especially when she starts experiencing serious physical traumas, despite the fact that nobody has touched her. As the search commences to find her sister, the twin left behind must rely on their intense bond to uncover the truth. But is there anyone around her she can trust, when everyone could be a suspect? And ultimately, can she even trust herself? Master storyteller Jessica Warman will keep readers guessing when everything they see-and everything they are told-suddenly becomes unreliable in this page-turning literary thriller.

Beautiful Lies will keep you guessing from beginning to end. This was the first book I have ever read by Jessica Warman, but it definately won't be my last. This is a story I had a hard time putting down. It kept a steady pace, while not making you think that it's too much for the story.
Rachel and Alice, orphaned twins, decide to go to local fair and meet up with some friends. Having a special connection with each other, when one twin goes missing, the other knows that something is wrong. When she starts getting unexplained injuries she realizes her sister is not just missing, but in danger. Not knowing who she can trust, she knows that she is the only one that will be able to find her sister.
