Publisher's Summary

A tragic kidnapping... the mystery of twin telepathy... a mother's search for a child, presumed dead.

Hours after throwing a third birthday party for their twins Kathy and Kelly in their Connecticut home, Margaret and Steve Frawley return home from a dinner in New York to discover the police in the house, their daughters missing, and an eight million dollar ransom note. The Frawleys meet the kidnapper's demands, but the abandoned car they're led to contains only Kelly, the body of the driver, and a suicide note, saying he had inadvertently killed Kathy and dumped her body in the ocean.

At the private memorial Mass for Kathy, Kelly tugs Margaret's arm and says that her sister Kathy "wants to come home right now." More unexplainable occurrences indicate that Kelly is in touch with Kathy, but no one except Margaret believes that Kathy is still alive. As Kelly's warnings become increasingly specific and alarming, however, FBI agents set out on a search for the kidnappers as Kathy's life hangs by a thread.

Delving into the well-documented but still unexplained phenomenon of twin telepathy, worldwide #1 best seller Mary Higgins Clark takes us deep into the minds of her characters while lifting us to the heights of suspense.

A good story--will hold your interest throughout

This is a good mystery, written by Mary Higgins Clark, who is certainly one of the greats in this genre. This story is about a set of twins who are kidnapped, but only one gets rescued, leading to interesting plot developments that arise partly out of the mother's trust that the safe twin can feel what the other is going through and keep hope alive for finding her. Mostly it is unremarkable in other ways, a bit predictable on most levels.

However, what made it greatly interesting to me is that it was sort of a story about how often people see things or have encounters that leave them briefly wondering, then quickly dismiss them as unimportant. This entire book seemed to be circling around the numerous ways alert people misread signals and situations, passed off important clues as trivial events. It is a reminder, especially in these times, that we all probably should be more aware of what seems odd or suspicious, and not ignore unusual things we observe. That appeared to be a central part of this story--things happening that people chose to interpret as innocent events, thus prolonging the crisis.

MHC is an excellent mystery writer. I thought the narrator got off to a bad start, but quickly improved, making the book an overall good listening experience.

Good Story Line, But...

I had heard of Mary Higgins Clark before, but this is my first read/listen to one of her books. I have to say I was disappointed. For such a popular and accomplished author, I found her writing to be sub-par. So, although the plot was interesting and the book suspenseful, I can't help but thinking that the novel would have been much better if the story line was taken and written by a different author.

The narrator was not great. However, in my listening experience, female narrators seldom are. There have been a few female narrators that I've listened to that were outstanding, but not many. (By the way, my wife feels the same way on this.)

Now I've probably got not only all MHC fans upset with me, but all women, too. Sorry about that, but I'm just sharing my honest opinions.

Slightly boring, occasionally annoying

This story has an interesting premise, but the book is actually fairly predictable. The characters seem so thin and undeveloped. It is like someone just telling you something that happened, rather than crafting a tale and building suspense. During the story, the reader is being led along, anticipating what might happen. It seemed to drag, and I found that I began wishing they would just hurry up with it. I really did not need to hear the narrator's interpretation of bad singing, especially more than once. This actually delivered some of the most annoying moments I have ever experienced in the 20+ years I have been listening to aduible books. I kept hoping the book would improve but at about the 3/4 mark I gave up and started a different book.

A Good Plot

Would you listen to Two Little Girls in Blue again? Why?

Any parent's dread is to have their child kidnapped, but to have two missing is a horror. The kidnappers are callous and have no scruples. They even turn on each other. Just read or hear it to find out just how.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the unusual twists in the story.

Which character – as performed by Jan Maxwell – was your favorite?

Angie Aims (Mona) was the most pitiful character.
Margaret was the wise mother who really knew her children.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Kidnapping gone amok.

Great book.

Loved this book. They either had illustrated the 'twin connrction' very subtly. And th frustration felt by those who can see that connection while others can not. for a 3 year old something that appears normal to them is not understood by the adults.
Add to all this the mystery and intrigue in the novel.
