Blurb: And then there was one . . .
I took over my sister’s life after she died, slipped into her place without missing a beat. I wore her favourite fuzzy sweater, kissed her boyfriend, inherited her friends . . . and her enemies.
Elizabeth and Isabel hadn’t seen each other since their parents divorced when they were three. Isabel stayed with her father, a brilliant and reclusive author. Elizabeth ended up with her mother, a jet-setting socialite who hopscotched her young daughter all over the world. Then Isabel is murdered – and her twin wants to find out why. Because she was out of town when it happened, Isabel’s friends don’t know she’s gone. And if Elizabeth has her way, they’ll never find out. Only Elizabeth will know – and the killer.
Highlight: Each character has unique personalities.
Caution: Elizabeth’s attraction to her twin’s boyfriend seems rushed and/or forced.
Highlight: Read this book alone at midnight. It makes it that much more suspenseful.
Caution: At first, before you really get to know the characters, they can feel a bit flat.
