Nothing special. Although this book was easy to read I did not find myself emerged or gripped by the story. Characters had a small amount of depth, but this could be expanded upon. I enjoyed the diary excerpts spread throughout the book and feel that this is an opportunity lost - more insight into the main character could have been gained in this way.

Although part of a series this is a stand alone book ( )

Although this book is part of a series, you can read it as a standalone novel. It was a quick read, fast-paced, and entertaining. I thought the characters were fairly well developed and the plot well laid out. ( )

After a car accident that killed Ellen, Karin took over Ellen's identity. They are sisters and everyone thought they were twins. Dave, a PI, shows up at her door wanting Ellen's help. When he unwittingly exposed her, she had to help him. Even though she knew nothing about the missing boys. She came to the conclusion that she needed to tell Dave the truth. Karin was running from her step father who is a con artist. She had been helping him run cons since she was a little girl. She wanted out, but he wouldn't let her go. So, when she found her opportunity, she took it. Now Dave knows the truth and she could go to jail, but she can't turn her back on the missing boy. Will Dave ever trust her or will she have to cut him loose and do it all on her own? ( )

A lot of drama, suspense and romance...This book is about a con artist who assumes her dead sister’s identity in order to escape her past. She is living under the radar until an investigator unintentionally
brings a child serial killer to her door. She is forced to perform the con of her life to catch a killer and save a child and maybe save herself.

I was provided an ARC in exchange for my honest review. ( )

I received a free copy of this book from LibraryThing. This is an engaging story that has drama, suspense and romance. Karin is a con artist who finally escapes the man who has been physically and emotionally abusing her since she was a child. Dave is a private security guy with issues from his childhood who is trying to catch a child killer. After their paths cross, they not only fall in love, they begin to help each other heal. This is an intriguing story, and the characters are fascinating. I loved reading every page. ( )
