Overview

After switching places with his identical twin to catch a criminal, Mitch is the one who’s hooked – on his brother’s girl!

Grant “Mitch” Mitchell is a cop accustomed to bailing out his charming, irresponsible twin, but his brother’s never been mixed up with a criminal before. The plan to get his twin out of trouble is a simple bait and switch.

Mitch will go undercover as his brother to gather enough evidence to put the bad guy in jail. It seems easy enough until a blond knockout shows up on his brother’s doorstep. She’s not only gorgeous, she’s spitting mad. Before Mitch knows it, he’s trying to keep his hands to himself while winning back his brother’s girl!

Meanwhile, his twin is living it up while attempting to impress a woman who thinks he’s Mitch. Which leaves a doozy of a question: Are the women falling for them or their mirror images?

    fun frolic

    In the middle of the night, Cary Mitchell flees Charleston to obtain help from his twin brother Grant better known as ¿Mitch¿. Cary owes bookie Flash Gorman twenty grand that if he does not pay now will lead to broken kneecaps. Cary also mentions that he has stolen from the till of a bar filled with dirty money to pay off some of the debt. What he fails to tell his sibling, an Atlanta cop, is that the reason he fled town is that Flash expects Cary to pay his tab by breaking the kneecaps of other clients behind in their remittance. Mitch decides that the best course of action is to hand Flash over to the police so when Cary refuses to play, Mitch offers to go undercover as Cary in a BAIT AND SWITCH operation. The first problem surfaces when Cary¿s girlfriend Peyton McDowell, daughter of a DA, arrives yelling at the switched Mitch. Others surface, but as he tries to solve his brother¿s problems, nothing goes right especially when it comes to Peyton because he begins falling in love with his sibling¿s girlfriend. Siblings switching places is a theme that is as old as the Old Testament yet Darlene Gardner keeps her story line fresh by enabling the readers to distinguish between the twins because their personalities remain in tact. This especially occurs with Peyton confused by Mitch¿s change in behavior and attitude. Thus amusing situations arise, as nothing is smooth as expected with a long-term identity exchange. The BAIT AND SWITCH of Mitch and Cary leads to a fun frolic for readers. Harriet Klausner

    Light Reading

    This is more romance than mystery. But the characters are personable and the story is fun, light reading.

    The title is more interesting than the book itself. The read is disorganized.dull & dumb. Poor writting skills. It is a complete waste of time & money.

    Just ok

    Thr concept was intriguing, but the writing didn't make me feel for the characters. POV was mixed, m/f, but the males' emotions were exceedingly feminine. It's free, so take a chance and read it. But, it doesn't call for a second time enjoyment reading.
