Prime Deception by Carys Jones
Genre: Mystery, Suspense, Romance
The suicide of a 22 years old woman is not big news, unless she had an affair with the Deputy Prime Minister, Charles Lloyd. Charles doesn't know how to face his job after ending the affair with her intern Lorna, but after her suicide, everything seems more tedious and unbearable for him.
After the appearance of Lorna's twin sister, Laurie, he will have to face that, perhaps, Lorna didn't commit suicide, that maybe she was murdered...
"Heavy is the head which wears the crown,' his mother had said to him warningly when he had told her of his decision to accept the position of Deputy Prime Minister. It was a rare moment when she had spoken her mind to him. Usually, she kept herself in the background when it came to these sorts of decisions, leaving the men to plan out the future of the family. 'I'm not trying to be a king, mother,' Charles had joked. 'You know what I mean,' she had said stubbornly, her always quiet voice till barely above a whisper. 'I just don't want you to end up unhappy.'"
Introduce yourself in a world where everything is based on appearances, making something for pleasure is not allowed and least of all, is falling in love with a much younger intern.
In this book you will feel the lost of Lorna from two different perspectives, Laurie and Charles.
Laurie cannot understand why her twin sister killed herself, as a consequence she stops talking to her family and moves to London to investigate. She will have to go through some really tough moments to understand the last months of her sister's life...
Charles just stops living with the suicide notice, cannot eat or concentrate in his job. However, with Laurie's obstinacy to know what had happened to Lorna, he will have to take some really difficult decisions, maybe changing his life forever.
