Publisher's Summary

The crash of a Dallas-bound jet wasn't just a tragedy to TV reporter Avery Daniels; it was an act of fate that handed her a golden opportunity to further her career.

Mistaken for a glamorous, selfish woman named Carole Rutledge, the badly injured Avery would find that plastic surgery had given her Carole's face, a famous senatorial candidate for a husband, and a powerful Texas dynasty for in-laws.

And as she lay helpless in the hospital, she would make a shattering discovery: someone close to the senator planned to assassinate him. Now, to save the life of the man she loved, Avery must live another woman's life - and risk her own.

    "Engaging Story, Novel Plot"

    I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It made you think about what a family knows and the secrets they keep, and how to keep your own.

    I liked the tension between Avery/Carole and Tate. It kept the story interesting.

    I liked Dick Hill's narration for the most part, but I prefer his work on Harry Bosch novels. This novel would have been more engaging with a good female reader.

    "Once you get past the set up, it's good"

    This is a good book, but you have to wade through the set up in the beginning. This could have gotten a little higher rating if it hadn't drifted off to a harlequin romance novel two or three times. Sandra, they're having sex, we get it. They like it, they feel close, awesome. Move on and get back to the story. But it really was a good book.

    "Vet narrators please!"
    What would have made Mirror Image better?

    The narrator's voice was barely audible at times dipping so low to almost a growl. Apart from poor diction,the voice sounded like the narrator's chin seemed to be stuck in his chest and that took away any enjoyment a reader could have had. Disappointing because the basically the story line looked good, but the frustration of missing so much due to poor narration prevented me from being able to complete listening to the book.

    Story
    "Disappointing Trend, Out of Touch, Sadly"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I read books to see what an author has to say about relationship development wrapped up in an interesting story. The story itself is fascinating, but the premise is so flawed it was almost unreadable. The author apparently tried to use in-depth sex to bolster the story so that the reader will stay the course.


    What was most disappointing about Sandra Brown’s story?

    Despite Ms. Brown's intriguing storyline, I find it unbelievable that people can hide their character (or change it superficially as dramatically as she does in her story) for any length of time, much less spanning 20 years. It's an easy trick to use on the reader to create one persona and then reverse it, to create suspense, instead of developing a story with depth.


    What three words best describe Dick Hill’s voice?

    The women's voice always sounded whining, grating, and wimpy to me. The narrator voice was excellent.


    Did Mirror Image inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, look for books that have integrity to the story-line. If I'm going to give my time and energy, I would like a fair exchange of realistic characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll take a look at the writer's early books to see if there is more depth to warrant reading them. She definitely has excellent writing style but it's sad to see it cheapened by the overuse of sex scenes and lack of real character development.

    "Surprise Ending"

    This book keeps you in suspense until the last chapter. I highly recommend. Dick Hill does a great job of narration.

    "Women's voices read by a man..."

    ...didn't make the cut. All the women had a pitiful southern tone to their voices. They came across as fearful, weak and pleading. Did not care for the narration at all. Story pretty good but narration spoiled it for me.

    "Story was ok performance was not"

    The story is A little far-fetched but it's pretty good. I like to twist of the ending but the beginning is a little slow.

    The narrator is terrible, maybe he does a good job with other books but he's totally wrong for this book and does a terrible, horrible job at women's voices.

    There is a sex scene that literally made me laugh out loud that could have been written by an adolescent boy. In other words it was ridiculous, but Sandra Brown always seems to throw in a ridiculous sex scene that makes me say yeah right... Oh Sandra, if only orgasms were that easy...

    "Great story, horrid reader."

    The reader made the story sound ridiculous with his performance of different women. Rather than sophisticated or even intelligent, they sounded ludicrous . Great book, however.

    Story
    "Not as good as it could have been"

    This book started out way too slow. The first 3 or so hours were way too drawn out. Then it started to get pretty good when Avery's bandages were removed and she started living her life with Tate.
    I've listened to Dick Hill the narrator before and he's a pretty good narrator BUT, it was way too distracting when he would sigh and take deep breaths when it wasn't called for at all. He just does that all the time. Also I missed a few lines because he makes some of the characters sound drunk and he misses out on the pronunciation of many words. I don't think I can listen to one of his books anymore.
    This story is not believable,but so what, it's pretty good until The ending was ruined a bit being way too far fetched. Again, it's just a story and it turned out to be just ok. Don't waste a credit, it'll be on sale as thats the way I bought it. Also get ready for Dick's sigh's, deep breathing and slurred words. Yikes!!

    Want my favorite one from her, but did keep me interested. A good narration, too.
