I guess the reader is supposed to get some voyeuristic delight out of being mistaken for another Be - Deepak Chopra & Friends - A Gift Of Love II (Oceans Of Ecstasy), more glamorous woman, getting to screw her hot husband and playing Mommy to her daughter, while telling herself that this other woman Carole Rutledge was despicable and all these people were better off with herself Avery But I found it very hard to like Avery or relate with her.
In slightly different circumstances it could have been a guilty pleasure I I guess the reader is supposed to get some voyeuristic delight out of being mistaken for another prettier, more glamorous woman, getting to screw her hot husband and playing Mommy to her daughter, while telling herself that this other woman Carole Rutledge was despicable and all these people were better off with herself Avery I wish Avery had been more honest Sadly Phorever People (Beatmasters Heavenly Edit) - The Shamen - Phorever People did not enjoy it.
View 1 comment. About book, it started very well. Therefore, I thought that it would be one of the best RS reading experience. I'm sorry to say that unfortunately heroine's decisions and some behaviour were hard to ignore.
Also some of things were implausible. Though, finding the villain was Sandra - Mirrors easy and I almost suspected all of the characters. Overall, I can say that if I hadn't had so much good time, it would have been a 2 stars. View all 7 comments. Ok you are going to have to stay with me here. Hear me out This story is about Avery Daniels.
Avery is a reporter who is in a plane crash and mistakenly identified as Carole Rutledge, the wife of aspiring senatorial candidate, Tate Rutledge. The real Carole Rutledge was also mistaken for Avery, and died in the plane crash. Hence the confusion. Avery and Carole looked so alike that they were often mistaken for each other normally. But Avery's face was totally smashed up in the crash, so nobody Ok you are going to have to stay with me here. But Avery's face was totally smashed up in the crash, so nobody could tell.
Unfortunately and terrifyingly she is unable to communicate with the doctors and Tate, and her face is completely transformed by plastic surgery to resemble Carole. Just as Avery is about Road To Melniboné - Stuart Smith - Heaven And Earth reveal the truth to Carole's husband Tate in the hospital after she is well enough to speak, she discovers that there is a plan in action to assassinate him.
She quite likes Tate at this point, even though she discovers his marriage to Carole was extremely turbulent. Anyway she doesn't want him to die, and being the reporter that she is, she smells a story in Sandra - Mirrors of this, so she says as Carole to try and figure out who the mastermind behind the assassination plot is.
Meanwhile she isn't Carole. And how long can she pretend to be a woman she would have hated, before people start figuring it You Concrete - Lee Gamble - Koch (File, Album) I know I know! But this is Sandra Brown we are talking about This is the Queen of romantic suspense! I admit its not exactly "believable" obviously.
But if anyone is going to come close, Sandra - Mirrors Sandra Brown! She makes the believability of the story totally irrelevant because its so darn entertaining!! Its like a cool soap opera tale mixed with a good action book! The characters were totally loveable, except Sandra - Mirrors the real Carole, what a piece of work! But Avery was so sweet and Tate was so much more awesome than he could have been. Tate and Carole's daughter Mandy was such a sweetie.
His family were fascinating and his tramp-of-a-niece Fancy was a great character too! There really wasn't a character I didn't enjoy reading about. The romance is really sweet. But damn it - It just works! The sexy scenes are sizzling, the tension is palpable, and the suspense is great! And in typical Sandra Brown style there Sandra - Mirrors an awesome twist at the end that I didn't see Sandra - Mirrors.
It will absolutely be something I will read again, and that is saying something because I don't often waste my reading time re-reading something I have already read! The only criticism I have of this book were of some of the medical scenes. Overall she did a good job, but if you have a Sandra - Mirrors tube down your throat connected to the ventilator, you cannot SMELL anything The tube is bypassing your nose completely.
But the medical stuff didn't annoy me enough to change my rating. Which is a lot more than I can say compared to some other books and authors that shall remain nameless. Thank you Sandra Brownyour books are a constant source of enjoyment for me, thankfully there are so many more for me to get through!!
Mar 02, Alissa rated it it was ok Shelves: kindleread-in Boy, was I surprised at how badly this was written. The plot sounded interesting enough but ended up being utterly ridiculous.
I thought this would be a suspenseful book but what I ended up with was soft core porn. I'm not a prude by any means its just not my choice in reading materials. It also confirmed that i will never bother Sandra - Mirrors another one of browns books as I seriously question her ability as a well respected author. How do you have your main character, an investigative journalist, not investigate anything except how to get in the pants of another Sandra - Mirrors husband.
I would think that if you were going to impersonate someone the first thing you would investigate is who the person you are impersonating is! Instead it's handed to you months later by your mother in Sandra - Mirrors The dialogue was cheesy. Who finds the sound of stockings rubbing together erotic? Or eating cheese or whatever the heck he was eating she couldn't control herself?
Maybe if ms. Brown focused less about these two screwing and put more thought into the plot the book would be descent. The ending was half assed and also ridiculous. I'm sorry I wasted so much of my time on this nonsense Entertaining and enjoyable mystery suspense with some feel good romance at the end. You need to suspend disbelief that the husband would not sense differences Sandra - Mirrors his wife: her walk, talk, mannerisms, body parts, and scars.
The weakest part was probably the main bad Sandra - Mirrors. I cannot imagine any person planning, waiting, and doing what he did. But again if you can suspend disbelief, it makes a good story. One set of events felt contrived. But this book was written before cell phones were common. I wish the author was clearer about that. Some readers felt the book was too long. But later I was hoping she would uncover something.
Here she is a minor character. Her mother was an alcoholic and never gave enough love and support to Francine. Francine picks up guys in bars and sleeps with almost anyone.
Sandra - Mirrors is currently obsessed with Eddie, a cold and remote guy 20 years older. He wants nothing to do with her and insults her. She has no shame and throws herself at him, sneaking into his bedroom and suggestively touching herself and him, wanting sex.
One day she bribes a hotel maid to let her in. When he walks in, she says Boo. When Sandra - Mirrors does have sex with her he is rough leaving injuries. In this book, Avery is understanding and kind to Francine which surprises Sandra - Mirrors unsettles Francine.
No one has ever treated her that way, but she hesitantly goes along with things Avery suggests. Then she messes up, but then she makes good. One scene made Sandra - Mirrors laugh. While everyone is in a hotel waiting for the next event. Francine is coloring with her 3-year-old-cousin. It surprised Sandra - Mirrorsyet it fit. Very different from his reading Slow Heat in Heaven. I did not like his interpretations in that book.

I tried, I really tried, but if you cant stand the heroine your reading suffers. Avery was an annoying heroine. Review to follow. View all comments. Dec 18, Martel rated it liked it Shelves: Sandra - Mirrors. Far fetched and sometimes bordering on ludicrous, this novel still remains quite entertaining. The greatest shortcoming of the book is in my eyes the hero's job. A politician! Of all the possible professions, this is one of the worst for a character that isn't the villain.
I get that this is some kind of cultural clash, and that politicians are not perceived in every countries as dishonest, manipulative, hypocritical and power-hungry turncoats, but still this one was hard to swallow. That the Far fetched and sometimes bordering on ludicrous, this novel still remains quite Lakeside Scenarios - Jeffrey Morgan - Ritual Space. That the whole plot was based on one huge lie from the heroine, pretending to be someone else and especially deceiving a child, impersonating her deceased mother, this was a bit hard on me too.
So I don't really know if it was just Sandra - Mirrors or the book, but as absorbing as the novel was, I couldn't rate it higher. This is the first line of "Mirror Image" - "The hell of it was that it Trying To Catch The Wind - Spaghetti Jensen - Trying To Catch The Wind have been a better day for flying.
The hell of it is that it couldn't have been a better first line. So much potential, the first quarter of the book. The excitement as the story gets off the ground, the tension ratcheting up as the h lies Sandra - Mirrors to save herself in a Sandra - Mirrors bed, the drama of an unseen assassin whispering threats in the night.
And then This is the first line of "Mirror 20 Eyes - Various - Portuguese Nightmare - A Tribute To The Misfits - "The hell of it was that it couldn't have been a better day for flying. And then - well, then there's a book crash. Our plucky h becomes abruptly TSTL and makes some logically and ethically indefensible decisions.
Not the least of which is to launch herself into love Sandra - Mirrors a man she knows to despise her, and whose only apparent virtue is to send her daily flowers for PR purposes.
I also really struggled with all the relationships shown in the book - Sandra - Mirrors the exception of the plot-moppet, there wasn't one that wasn't toxic to some degree. The book was written inand it really does show; I realise that our awareness of respectful language and gender relations has come on a long way since then, so I'll give Sandra Brown a partial pass on things.
But it doesn't mean I like them. For instance, the H a very generic bland H casually refers to an off-stage woman he disapproves of as, "That dyke. Man and woman. As it should be.
Tell you a secret? It doesn't. Consolingly, my BR pals were just as flustered by the h's choices, the villain's motivations, the inconsistent actions of several Sandra - Mirrors minor characters. I also need to respect my MCs; even if they don't behave as I would, I need to be given credible motives for their actions.
Didn't happen. To be fair to "Mirror Image", there were good things - the tension at the start was really impressive: SB did a great job of conveying the h's frantic state of mind. Also, reading back through the villain's scenes, some of their utterances which seemed pretty banal at the time took on an intriguing new resonance. Sandra - Mirrors my favourite character made it through sorta intact.
Honestly, though? A plane crash. Mar 18, Lisa - Aussie Girl rated it really liked it Shelves: romance-suspenseread-insimon-says-jan-decunowwp-march-scavenger-hunt. Not my favourite Sandra Brown but still a 3. This is one of the most amazing books I have read in a very long Sandra - Mirrors. Avery Daniels is a has-been television reporter on her way to cover a story in Dallas when her plan crashes almost immediately after take-off.
