    more from this reviewer

    Great storytelling

    A bust that goes bad leads to Atlanta police detectives Tom Madsen and Agnes Jade along with her K9 Gustav being ambushed. Tom dies and Agnes is hospitalized with severe wounds. Her friend Georgia Tech engineering Professor Dr. Alex Rossiter helps Agnes with her recovery including cleaning up her home which was the target of someone angrily searching for something.<P> Though released from the hospital, Agnes needs more time to recuperate. She asks her twin sister, Vegas gambler Lizzie to switch places with her. She thinks Lizzie can uncover what happened to her and Tom. Agnes believes rouge cops caused the whole disaster. As they make the switch, Lizzie obtains help from Atlanta Journal and Constitution reporter Nathan Hawk while Alex takes Agnes to a small getaway farm. As the two pairs of couple fall in love, danger mounts from dirty cops willing to kill peers to keep a thriving business alive.<P> The use of twins switching places is an old gimmick, but Fern Michaels keeps her story line brisk because of the differences in personalities between the two siblings. Though Lizzie filling so easily into a cop's shoes seems ludicrous, readers will not care, as she is a vulnerable 'bad girl'. The sisters and their beaus turn what could have been a poor woman's Serpico into a fine police procedural romance that displays Ms. Michaels' ability to write quality tales in several sub-genres.<P> Harriet Klausner

    The story was good

    I really enjoyed this story! I think it took too long for Aggie and Alex to get together. But all and all I liked it, expect for one thing. I think her proof-reader should fired! She messed up in the book 4 times! She kept writing the wrong name. It was really annoying. I don't know how it got published like that.

    Terrible dialogue for a romance

    I usually enjoy most contemporary romance novels I pick up. Unfortunately, this book is one of my least favorites. The dialogue is forced and I didn't find myself really caring about the characters. Other books by this author have been better.
