Cover of It Should Have Been You by Lynn Slaughter. Booklist: Clara Seibert’s identical twin sister, Moura, was murdered five months ago, and Clara is still a suspect in the unsolved crime. While the twins were not close (Moura was a piano prodigy about to leave for Juilliard, while Clara has no musical aptitude but a considerable talent for journalism), Clara and her family are still reeling. Then Clara, who runs the school newspaper’s advice column, starts getting threatening e-mails (such as the book’s title) and finds herself needing to take an active role in the murder investigation.

A tidily constructed murder mystery.
