About the book: What if you could take the life you’d always wanted?
Alvie has always been in the shadow of her glamorous sister Beth.
So when she’s invited to her identical twin’s luxurious Sicilian villa, Alvie accepts.
Who wouldn’t want seven days in the sun?
With Beth’s hot husband, the cute baby, the fast car and of course, the money.
The thing is it’s all too good to let go . . . and her sister Beth isn’t the golden girl she appears.
It’s Alvie’s chance to steal the life that she deserves.
If she can get away with it.
My Review: Holy Mother f*cker, I can’t stop grinning now I’ve finished MAD. This is like Killing Eve with Dildo’s. It’s rude, crude and downright dark and I absolutely LOVED it.
Alvie (Alvina) is a 26 year old twin, living (slumming) in London, working in a dead-end job and basically hating everyone and everything around her, when she gets an invitation to visit her estranged, identical twin sister Beth, who lives in Sicily in a life of riches and luxury and married to the man of Alvie’s dreams.
Without spoiling the story for you, once Alvie arrives in sunny Sicily things take a rather sinister and murderous turn. Alvie, basically, is a horny psychopath and events in Sicily allow this dark and disturbing side to come out with jazz hands and bells on.
MAD is absolutely MAD, it’s hysterical, sexy, shameless and completely outrageous and 100% highly recommended by me.
