The Jones twins are missing. This precocious brother-sister pair has gone off to their own pursuits, and is perhaps in serious trouble. Or so their father thinks, and comes to Mary McAllister for help. Little does he know what kind of woman she is, and her three sometimes in-your-face daughters. Little does anyone know that murder is just around the corner. Even less would anyone guess that the twins are genetically different, in a very special way. Does all this sound strange and disconnected? Then I guess you’re ready for A Twin Mystery.

This is a story about two families. The McAllisters are a mother and three daughters. The mother, Mary, is a financial planner for college-bound students, but she finds herself becoming a detective. Her middle daughter, Nellie, narrates the tale and had her own agenda in doing so. Then there is the Jones family. The brother-sister Jones twins are high achieving students with plans of their own, plans they aren't willing to share with their parents. In fact, they are missing. Mary is hired to find them and keep the process below the radar of a real missing persons police case. Such a scenario, with single mother tracking down missing twins, is maybe a little unusual but then, really, is it that big a deal? Well, actually it is. And it's because the Jones twins are genetically not like you and'll find out how they are different. The action starts fast and accelerates, all the while interpreted through Nellie's quirky personality. Oh, there are other interesting characters, too, but you have the main idea. Give it a start and you'll be off and running.

Narrator’s Preface

This story is about twins I never met. My name is Nellie – actually, Helen – McAllister. When these events happened I was seventeen. I'm older now, of course, but it's better to think of me as seventeen. I’ve al-ways been one of those busybodies who sticks her nose into other peo-ple’s business. There's no excuse for it except that I'm truly fascinated with people, what they do, what they think, how they react to events, what they look like, where they go. Pretty much anything about them. My jour-nal is where this story came from. Back when I was eleven I started writ-ing down things that happened to me or people I knew, conversations, feelings, and things like that. I still keep the journal, and wouldn't know how to carry on life without it. Not that I write in it every day. But, when I do, I put down information very completely, if I do say so. So, in telling this tale I swear I’ve been accurate, at least in intent, color, and meaning relative to the overall course of events.
Oh, another thing: when I mention myself in the pages to follow, I’ll use the third person, just as for everyone else. It seems like a proper way to tell the story, but I warn you that you’ll still have to put up with my own prejudices and unique – sometimes moralizing – point of view. But hey, that might be fun for you, since you know from the outset to take me with a grain of salt. I have the facts mostly straight. And those facts turn out to be rather marvelous indeed.

Professional Reviews
I highly recommend this book. LPTIII

If you like a genuine whodunit mystery with scientific implications, you will enjoy this book! The Jones twins are missing and their father seeks out Mary McAllister for help. Where are the twins? Why are they missing? Who knows where they are? In what activity are the twins engaged? Who are the important players in this mystery? Could the twins possess some unique genetic trait that is related to the twins' disappearance? What is their family background and what other people have played an important part in the lives of the twins? Even murder becomes part of the story! The plot thickens! Largely due to Mary McAlister's persistence, the mystery begins to unravel! Throughout the story, the author vividly describes the impact this mystery has on all of the characters, using excellent, descriptive dialogues. As this mystery reaches it's conclusion, there are some surprises and some questions remain open to speculation. Once I begin to read this mystery, I found it difficult to put down, because I found myself trying to guess what would happen next! For these reasons, I highly recommend this book.
