Olive, tired of living a pauper’s life, steals a fortune from her wealthy employer. Soon after, her pious twin sister rings on her doorbell, demanding she repent and give the money back. Or else!
‘Twin Cheats’ is book number five in the ‘Life in The Clouds’ series. Each is a stand-alone story, but with a common setting. The Stables is an exclusive hamlet on London’s outskirts. If you visited, you would think you’d stepped back in time one hundred years. If you are rich and eccentric enough, they might even let you stay. Those employed there, however, are a bunch of oddballs, so best to avoid them.
Be ready, this new serialised novella starts in a few days. Rather than miss an instalment, it’s easy to follow my blog on bloglovin’. They’ll give you a friendly nudge as I release new parts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What I like about these books is that the film versions are such accurate copies. They complement each other. Once having seen the film, all the characters and locations are burnt into your memory. When you read the book, you see the film in your mind. When you watch the film, all the extra details from the book fit snuggly into place. Marvellous stuff!
