Book Review - MIRRORED IMAGE BY Alice K. Arenz

Mirrored Image
 
Every once in a while you run across a book that holds you captive. The cover, the blurb on the back, and most especially the book. This is one of those.
 
In a way, Mirrored Image reminds me of Alice K Arenz, aka A.K. Arenz. As A.K. Arenz, Alice wrote cozy mysteries--the kind that keep you grinning while you read and enjoy the mystery. As Alice, it's spine-tingling, edge of the seat, keep you guessing until the last chapter writing. (And I'll try not to use any more old, tired cliche's.)
 
Cassie Chase has a career she loves--a columnist writing light-hearted articles about whimsical happenings around the country. Her editor and friend David thought she wasted her talents, so he threw her into investigating and writing about the murder of a young woman who just happens to look amazingly like Cassie.
 
Even more amazing--this look-alike victim knew her editor, the publisher of the newspaper, her sister-in-law, her brother, and her editor's secretary. None of them ever mentioned this woman who so amazingly resembled Cassie.
 
To top that off, her house is robbed--sort of--the same day as the murder. Except instead of taking anything, the intruder sleeps in her bed. Otherwise, the house is cleaner than when she left it. Things get stranger when someone apparently wants to also do harm to her.
 
Cassie butts heads with a handsome policeman as separately and together they search for clues. Detective Jeff McMichaels would like to work on his own, but he finds he has to take her along to keep her safe.
 
Did the murderer kill the wrong person? Will she be next? Should you buy the book and find out for yourself?

  2. Anne, I really enjoyed this reveiw. I mainly read books like this and books with an Amish/Mennonite setting. This author is new to me and I'm so glad you introduced me. Blessings, Susan Fryman

  3. Hi Susan!
    This is really unlike the Amish setting. I think you would like it, even so! I'm interviewing Alice tomorrow if you'd like to stop back by.
