NEW Release Review: Twin Sacrifice by @JenLaneBooks


Today's the big day - the release of Twin Sacrifice by Jennifer Lane! As you'll see in my review below, I found this to be an excellent read - Jennifer Lane at her very best.

Twin Sacrifice
by Jennifer Lane
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: February 28, 2018



My twin brother is determined to kill himself, but I won’t let him. 

I just discovered the sacrifice he made for me when we were young.

Now it’s time I return the favor. This time I’ll be the one with the secret.

Psychologist Matthew Durante’s twin brother, Justin, has struggled with mental illness since their parents died in a house fire. After Justin is accused of setting off a bomb that killed an innocent woman, he lands in a maximum-security psychiatric hospital.

In the face of Justin’s unrelenting suicide attempts, Matthew grows frantic to keep him alive. And as the pieces of their past fall into place, Matthew decides bold action is his only choice, no matter the cost.

Set against the backdrop of weapons manufacturing, terrorism, and a dark family secret, Matthew and Justin fight for survival, redemption, and most of all, for each other.






Twin Sacrifice

Review by Nicki Elson

This is Jennifer Lane at her best. Twin Sacrifice gripped me from the first chapter and kept me riveted to the page the entire way through, wondering how in the world the Durante brothers would get themselves out of this one. The suspense in Twin Sacrifice is non-stop and addicting. I eagerly anticipated each chapter to see what ingenious new plot twist was tap.

One thing you can count on in Jennifer Lane books is dynamic characters. In Twin Sacrifice, they've all got so many intense levels and yet she makes them relatable and likable. The bonds between the brothers is beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking.

Something that sets Twin Sacrifice apart from standard suspense is the realistic use of therapy sessions to dig deeper into the characters and move their stories forward. It's obvious the author has a wealth of practical experience in this area. She also has a knack for sharing her knowledge in an accessible way to readers so that the concepts are easy to understand and interesting for non-experts like me.

I highly recommend this story for readers of suspense and anyone who enjoys a riveting tale with engaging characters.




Psychologist/author (psycho author) Jennifer Lane invites you to her world of romance, sports, and suspense! By day she’s a therapist, and by night she’s a writer. She can’t decide which is more fun.

Jen’s first psychological thriller launches in 2018: Twin Sacrifice. Psychologist Matthew Durante risks his own life to save his twin brother’s as their foster father tries to take them down.

Jen loves to create sporty heroines and hot heroes in her college sport romances. Volleyball wonder Lucia Ramirez finds her love match in Blocked despite the glaring political spotlight aimed on her family. In Aced, the second book in the Blocked series, it’s her brother Alejandro’s turn to get lucky in love. Spiked (Blocked #3) completes the series and features Lucia’s younger brother Mateo.

A swimmer and volleyball player in college, Jen writes swimming-based romances as well: Streamline, a military mystery, and the free New Adult novella Swim Recruit.

Stories of redemption interest Jen the most, especially the healing power of love. She is also the author of The Conduct Series, a romantic-suspense trilogy that includes With Good BehaviorBad Behavior, and On Best Behavior.

Whether writing or reading, Jen loves stories that make her laugh and cry. In her spare time she enjoys exercising, attending book club, and visiting her sisters in Chicago and Hilton Head.



And all that suspense comes with plentiful dashes of humor:

Love Genres #IWSG

Welcome to another chapter in "Holy s@*& I almost forgot IWSG day." Thank you again, Jennifer Lane for the very much needed personal reminder.

So, straight to the optional question of the month:
What do you love about the genre you write in most often?

I most often write chick-litty romance. There are two things I love most about the genre: 1) The excitement of realizing you love someone and that they love you back. 2) Lightheartedness. This life is filled with so much conflict and garbage that it's easy to become trapped in darkness. I choose to remain most often in light and fluffiness.

I look forward to hearing what draws you all to your genres and will be back later today to visit. Right now, I'm knee deep in a work project and about ankle deep in new snow I've got to get off my driveway (luckily, it looks to be light & fluffy. ;)).
