If you take the time to think about the premise of this book, it's quite scary. I mean, can you imagine going about your business, and suddenly being accosted by a total stranger accusing you of things you have never even contemplated, never mind done? Well, this is exactly what happened in this book.

Mercy is a dead ringer for Thomas dissapeared wife. Thomas grabs her from Bermuda and her life spirals out of her control. Mistaken for someone else and judged by someone else's deeds, Mercy has a tough time finding her bearings, never mind trying to convince all of them about her real identity. Meanwhile she is dodging bullets and kidnappers, while trying to save "her son", Daniel's life. Throughout all this chaos and mistaken identity she clings to her faith.

I would recommed this book to all who loves a Christian spin on a Romantic Suspense.

Thank you to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. ( )

entertainingly written, fun characters, but predictable plot and excessive cursing ( )

This is another page turner of Lisa's. Lot's of suspense, and humor. ( )

I've been slowing making my way through the Rosato & Associates Series. They are great books to have around when I'm ready for something quick and fun. Dead Ringer was no different. The associates are such a mishmash of different characters that they are fun to see interact with one another, but Bennie Rosato is the star of the show. She is so smart, daring, and funny that when she's the main focus of an installment I enjoy them that much more. These books aren't going to keep you up all night having to find out who did it (this one I'd guessed early on) or leaving you breathless like a literary masterpiece but they are fun and fast-paced. Perfect for a guilty pleasure. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060514949, Mass Market Paperback)

Bennie Rosato is fighting the battle of her life -- against her own twin. The action starts innocently enough, with a stolen wallet, but in no time events escalate and the twin wreaks havoc that can be created only by a dead ringer. Her twin tries to destroy Bennie's law firm, Rosato & Associates, and then strikes at her very heart -- which just happens to be otherwise engaged by a handsome, hunky stranger with the perfect amount of chest hair. But when a brutal murder occurs, Bennie realizes that the stakes have turned deadly. And the face of evil looks like her own.
