This second gothic novel in the dark Mirror Sisters trilogy continues the tale of sisterly love at its absolute worst—from the legendary New York Times bestselling author of Flowers in the Attic and My Sweet Audrina (now Lifetime movies). For fans of Ruth Ware (In a Dark, Dark Wood) and Liane Moriarty (The Husband’s Secret).

Sisters until the end...

Which may come sooner than they think.

Under their mother’s watchful eye, identical twins Haylee and Kaylee Fitzgerald have lived their entire lives in sync. Never alone, never apart, everything about them must be exactly the same: clothes, friends, punishments.

One night, in the darkness of a movie theater, Haylee reveals that she’s leaving to meet up with someone she knows from online. But suddenly feeling ill, and not wanting to disappoint this older man, she convinces Kaylee to go in her stead. He’ll never know, and this way he won’t think she stood him up.

Kaylee reluctantly agrees to go, but when the credits roll and she’s nowhere to be found, Haylee confesses everything to her mom. With the manhunt on, Haylee knows everything must be done to find her sister. Still, for the first time in her life, she’s free from her twin, which, really, isn’t so it?

I took away one star because it ended with so many unanswered questions. Who was the lady in the house? Was it Anthony's mother? Was she an accomplice? Did she get arrested along with Anthony? Hell, was there even an arrest at all? They could have fled for all we know. We never heard anything more about Anthony after he left Kaylee alone long enough to be found by the police. We can assume he was arrested, but it wasn't made clear to the readers exactly what happened after they rescued Kaylee. I would have liked to see more of an aftermath too instead of having it end so quickly after Kaylee's rescue. Did the case make international news? How did their community react to such a crazy turn of events? I would have also liked to see one final confrontation between Kaylee and her sister with Haylee behind a cell before putting the lid on it. In short, the storyline was great but Kaylee's rescue was dragged on too long and when it finally happened the book ended just a few short pages after that without really answering a lot of the questions that would have been at the forefront of the reader's mind now that Kaylee has been saved. I know that's what the sequel is for, but we could have easily still had the sequel without leaving the readers hanging this much.

What can I say about “Broken Glass?” I feel like this can sum it up for all fans of V.C. Andrews books: It is exactly what you want and expect to find in one of them, meaning creepy and a guilty pleasure. It’s a fun story that continues the story of Haylee and Kaylee, two of the world’s creepiest twins. A perfect beach read. This unbiased review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher.

A story of betrayal and survival written by one of the greats. I finished it in one night and I am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series!

I enjoyed this book better than the first one. You can see my review here. Two identical twin sisters Haylee and Kaylee live under the thumb of their very controlling mother. She is so controlling that she won't let one wake unless the other is awake and they must always dress the same, do their hair the same and finish each other's sentences. This works for mom but the girls would love to have their own separate lives. One of them has done what she felt she needed to in order to make that happen and it is at the expense of her sister. This book had me hooked and it was finished in three days even with my job, my kids, homework and mommy work. If I had the time it would have been read in one night. The book starts right were book one leaves off. One of the twins is missing and now the other has to talk about what she knows. I was dying to know what was going to happen and was happy there was some closure at the end of the book although I cannot wait for book 3. This book reads quicker than the first and highlighted just how much parents can screw up their kids. The psychological damage from an overbearing mother and the absence of father due to divorce was the breeding ground for jealousy, hatred, and manipulation. It was a perfect storm and book 3 can't come soon enough.

Oh, how I waited for this book to be released. Impatiently I counted down the weeks until I finally could continue to read the story about Haylee and Kaylee, the Mirror Sisters. And then finally, there it was, “Broken Glass”. Once I got stared it was impossible to stop reading. I felt the dread and fear Kaylee had to endure. I wanted to scream at Haylee, to stop being such a terrible sister. I can’t understand how somebody can have so much hatred towards another being. Not to mention that Kaylee is her sister! She can’t have a conscience at all. Even if she did suffer being brought up by a mother with problems. Nothing can excuse what Haylee did to her sister, her family and even Anthony Cabot. Never. I hope that she is going to be punished hard, not just getting a slap on the wrist. But I fear that she is too manipulative and will talk herself out of it. And yes, Anthony is a creep and has some mental health problems. But Haylee sat him up just as much as she did Kaylee. How can Kaylee get on with her life now after being betrayed from the one she thought was part of herself? How can she not hate her sister? And most of all, how will Haylee’s life will be now that everyone knows what kind of person she is? I so enjoyed this story and can’t wait for the next book to come out. Drawn into the life of Kaylee and Haylee I felt like a part of the family. And this is what makes a good book. The feeling you get when reading it, this feeling when your heart starts recing and you have to close your eyes for a moment just to calm down and remind you that it’s a book and not your life going on. If you like psychological thrillers I highly recommend this series, you won’t be disappointed. I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thank you, NetGalley and Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books!

Broken Glass (The Mirror Sisters, #2) by V.C. Andrews What a masterful use of suspense V. C. Andrews used in this book. The reader is waiting for the moment of resolution from the beginning of the story. Her masterful use of prose and detail gives the book a dynamic build to the end of the book. Your nail biting anxiety of fear for Kaylee begins with the Mirror sisters. Broken Glass looks at the darker side of what Haylee has involved her sister in. The delusion and violence of Anthony is climaxed by the surprise just before the end of the book. I hope that Shattered Memories will bring a resolution to the conflict of the sibling rivalry.
