Suppose you awakened one day to see someone who resembles you on the front page of the newspaper? Not so bad unless that person happened to have been murdered. This is the premise of Alice K. Arenz's newest release, Mirrored Image. When Cassie Chase's editor sees the picture, he immediately assigns her to write about the dead woman, Lynette Sandler. Eccentric and not the least interested in a murder case, Cassie takes on her assignment reluctantly, and in the process uncovers a twisted, complicated situation involving her own family. When Cassie's home is invaded and attacks begin against her, she begins to wonder if she was the real target for murder. The secrets she reveals add more danger but Cassie plows ahead until she finds the real truth and not that built on lies from the past and the present. This one will keep you up late turning pages to find where the truth lies.
This book was given to me in the hope that I would enjoy it enough to tell others about it, and I'm pleased to say it's a great read.
In Mirrored Image, Cassie Chase, a writer for the local paper is assigned to write a series about a murder victim. The twist is that the victim is her double. Frustrated by her predicament, but stubborn enough to face the challenge head on, she approaches Detective McMichaels with more attitude and bravada than is wise and the tension begins.
Detective McMichaels is astounded that Cassie's boss would put her on such a dangerous assignment since she's only covered fluf stories in the past, and he's convinced that Cassie and the victim are somehow linked.
I was certain from chapter one on that I knew who the murderer was, but was pleased to find out I was wrong. The plot is full of unexpected twists and turns and kept me interested to the end.
