I stumbled across this book and when I saw that it was the same author who wrote "Time Traveler's Wife", I had to read it. I loved "Time Traveler's Wife" and I REALLY loved this one. It has all the same imagination and cleverness as her first novel, yet I think it has a bit more mystery and is a little less confusing (if you read "Time Traveler's Wife", you'll know what I'm talking about).
This one is about a set of identical twins moving from Chicago to London after they are left an estate from an estranged aunt whom they've never had a relationship with (the aunt is also an identical twin of their own mother). The will stipulates that they must live in their aunt's flat for a year. They mystery over why their mother and aunt never spoke to each other is one of the many mysteries of the story but things get even more mysterious at the discovery of the aunt's ghost haunting the flat.
The girls and the former lover of their aunt build a relationship with the ghost and the story starts to get really interesting....I can't say anymore, I'll spoil the fun. A ghost story, love story, and a mystery! I loved it :) And, I could really see it becoming a movie. I'm sure it would never be as good, but it just seems set up for that type of thing (I never saw Time Traveler's Wife...did anyone? I wonder if it's like the book???)
