Who could be behind all of these misfortunes? Could it be Alice, Bennie's twin sister who was given away at birth and who resents Bennie? She has caused trouble before and Bennie knows the scandalous behavior that has her peers turning away from her has to be Alice pretending to be her.

Scottoline has written an engaging mystery. Readers not only get a puzzle to solve but a look into the internal workings of an independent business, and how lawsuits make their way through the courts from start to finish. This book is recommended for mystery lovers.

A good summer read, but not very meaty
Liked the book, fast paced, likeable/loveable characters. Would want Bennie as a friend. This was read as a book club selection, and honestly, there isn't much to discuss! Ending a little hokey. But I would read another book in the series if I was looking for something light but enjoyable to read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
