Two Little Girls in Blue by Mary Higgins Clark

Bestseller Clark is at her best when writing of crime against children, as shown in this chilling tale of kidnapping, murder and telepathy. Before leaving for a black-tie affair in New York City, Margaret and Steve Frawley celebrate the third birthday of their twin girls, Kathy and Kelly, with a party at their new home in Ridgefield, Conn. Later that night, when Margaret can't reach the babysitter ...
More, she contacts the Ridgefield police. The frantic couple return home to find the children missing and a ransom note demanding $8 million. Though the Frawleys meet all the conditions, only Kelly turns up in a car along with a dead driver and a suicide note saying that Kathy has died. But Kelly's telepathic messages from her sister keep telling her differently, and Margaret won't give up hope. Even the most skeptical law enforcement officers and the FBI, who pursue suspects from New York to Cape Cod, begin to believe Kelly is on to something. Clues from ordinary people lead to a riveting conclusion.

This book grabbed me in the first chapter and kept me reading. It was interesting how the mind works with the kidnapper and her desire to have a child. And for the twin Kelly and her 'twin connection' to still connect with her sister. Questions that we all still have about twins and the things that connect them. Very good read.

Diana, lol I have to laugh because I did no planning. MM did everything I just had lots of clean cloths and stuff to maintain my regular household. Wait a minute, I did work out all the bill paying, the lawn care and the mail stuff. Maybe I did a little planning after all. :) He did all the road trip planning.
