"When you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book." ~ Christopher Morley
Sienna Scott grew up in the dark shadow of her mother’s paranoid delusions. Now, she's returned home to confront her past and the unsolved murder that altered the course of her life.
In her mother’s shuttered house, an old fear that has haunted Sienna for years rears its ugly head—that it was she who had been the killer’s target that night. And now, with it, a new fear—that the killer not only intended to remedy his past mistake—he’s already begun. But are these fears any different from the ones that torment her mother?
As the walls close in, the line between truth and lie, reality and delusion disintegrate. Has Sienna’s worst nightmare come true? Or will she unmask a killer and finally prove she may be her mother’s look-alike, but she’s not her clone? -indiebound.org
This was a fun little thriller with a tender backstory of loving someone dealing with mental illness. Sienna was a really cool heroine. She's a true badass but she deals with self doubt. Her development throughout the novel was really strong. I figured out the killer very early on but there were enough red herrings and twists thrown in that I too doubted myself along the way.
If you love great thrillers that are light on the gore, definitely pick up The Look-Alike by Erica Spindler. The novel was just released yesterday! Head on over to your favorite local bookstore, library or check out ordering options from indiebound.org and support local book stores.
