Urban legend says that everyone has a double, or exact look-alike. Would you search for yours? And if you found them, would you risk your life for theirs?
When a chance encounter outside the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan results in mistaken identity, wedding planner Gia Russo is curious to find the person whose cell phone picture has been shown her—veterinarian Dr. Danielle Murano, her exact look-alike. A Facebook private message blossoms into a budding, long-distance friendship, and the two women agree to meet in New York and see the truth for their own eyes.
Shocked at the sight of one another, they quickly bond over drinks, childhood pictures and an uncanny feeling that they share more than just a visual resemblance. Together they decide to end the speculation and undergo DNA testing for siblingship. But when the tests confirm they’re identical twins, more questions are raised than answered.
And with good reason. The same mysterious forces that separated the sisters years ago are still at large, frantic to keep the two women apart. Their attempts to do so become more violent once it becomes clear that the two sisters have found each other. But when the danger escalates and the sisters fear for their lives, Gia turns to a former client of her wedding planning company, Marc Devereraux of Forensic Instincts, for help.
Despite being embroiled in another case, Forensic Instincts agrees to help Gia and Danielle discover who has been threatening them. And when Forensic Instincts discovers that this case is linked to the Organized Crime, they must dig up skeletons better left buried, and get at the frightening truth without destroying the sisters and the families they have grown to love.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It has a good plot but what I liked best about it was the characters. They made the novel a delight to read. The Forensic Instincts group is made up of people with unusual abilities. One reads body language well. Another is great at acting. One fellow is a technological expert while yet another senses the psychological states of others as well as their emotional history. It was fun to read how the group worked together to solve the mystery. I really enjoyed the wit and humor in their verbal interaction too.
I recommend this novel to readers who enjoy great character interaction as well as the solving of the mystery. You'll also get to ponder the idea of siblings being separated shortly after birth, being adopted, and then being reunited. I'll be looking for the next novel in the series. Kane can't write them fast enough for me.
My rating: 5/5 stars.
