on Tour September 18th - October 20th, 2017
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 [Mafia, 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.

It has been a while since I have read a book by this author. So, I was very looking forward to reading this book. I had no problems reading it and finishing it in a very quick manner. No, the issue for me was that I did not feel or experience any heightened build up of intensity in the storyline. Plus, it felt a little disjointed. Nothing really came together until the last third of the story.
Although, I will give props to Casey and her team at Forensic Instincts. The team is what kept me reading. They worked well and smart together. Casey is a good, strong female lead. Who has earned the respect of her team. When the story did all come together in the end, I had no reactions. Sadly, this book did not win me over. Yet, I do plan to go back and read some of the other books that I missed in this series as I want to see more of Casey and the rest of the team in action.
