Really enjoyed this Sandra Brown novel

I can never turn down a chance to read a new Sandra Brown novel. I especially liked the male lead in this one. He wasn’t a jacked up former seal team six type-no offense- I like them, too, but more of a regular guy who actually thought like a real person, who needed to look out for himself a bit. It was a great story all around, hard to put down.

Amazing!

This book was amazing! There are so many twist and turns that you almost have to go back and listen again just to catch them all! I would highly recommend this book to anyone. It's perfect for a road trip!

Wonderful to have the unabridged version

I must have listened to the abridged version in the past, but I had only the barest memory of the plot. I prefer this unabridged version - couldn't stop listening.

Dialog from the teacher

Ridiculous storyline with implausible characters. Inconsistencies drove me crazy. One woman dies because she sleeps with a man she just met, yet her twin is a worthy substitute although she is obviously more promiscuous. One minute, the main character will stop at nothing to get answers, the next she is glad her sister's body was cremated so the police can't investigate further. But what made me cringe was when the characters spoke like teachers in case the reader wasn't following along. How often do you hear someone say "In summary..." in a normal conversation?

Unbelievably superior listen and read.

Sandra Brown at her most best. Narrator Jan Maxwell receives a rating of 5 as well.
The twists and turns are great. The collection of Sandra Brown novels while mounting makes my decision of Audible Books supreme.

Confusing

It's hard to relate to the twins. Without giving away the ending, it's difficult to relate to them when they aren't who they are----well, you'll see what I mean when you get to the end.

Don’t waste your time

An interesting but implausible plot line. The profanity and gratuitous nature of the book reminded me of why I don’t read Sandra Brown.

The wrong twin.

A good little story about twins when one is murdered and the other wants to find the culprit. Not all is as it seems though. I read this a long time ago and when it came on sale, I picked it up anticipating Sandra Brown’s unique voice again. The mystery and the romance blend perfectly and of course Sandra Brown has her twist at the end. I will admit I did have a suspicion of the outcome the first time I read this book, but it is still good anticipation if a little unrealistic. Narrator does a fairly good job.
