While I tend to read all over the map, I am not generally a thriller reader. It’s just not the genre I think I want to read. Erica Spindler is coming to my store for a luncheon next month, and I always read the book before an event if the publisher supplies an ARC, so I jumped in.
I could not put The Look-Alike down. I loved the interplay between Sienna wondering if she was meant to be the victim and fearing she’s suffering her mother’s mental illness. I love the layers of the story; it’s so much more than the story of a murder. And as a romance reader, I loved the romance subplot, much as I wished there was space for more development.
I had some ideas about who the murderer might be, but I couldn’t narrow it down to just one. All the characters are complex and developed enough you could see how it might be them.
If you’re into thrillers, murder mysteries, or psychological suspense, this one’s for you. It reads fast, too, so it’s a great mom read. I am so excited to discuss it with the author in February.
