What if the only way you could save your own life was to kill yourself?
Someone is trying to kill Sophie Rippetoe, and she has no place to hide. But Sophie has a unique option. Her husband designed and built a duplicator machine to make exact copies of complicated and sophisticated machine parts. She knows how the duplicator works.
Will it work for people? No one knows.
There's just one problem: the duplication process destroys the original. The only thing Sophie knows for sure is that trying to make copies of herself will end up killing her.
Sophie isn't sure who's trying to kill her or why - but she has her suspicions and has gathered some evidence. She has created a trail of clues, hopeful that at least one of the Sophies she creates will figure out who the killer is in time to save herself.

Thanks to Resa Nelson for the opportunity to read and review her book, All of Us Were Sophie! The first chapter describes Sophie worrying that someone is trying to kill her and what she is doing about it. Her husband has invented a duplication machine that destroys the original, but will make several copies at once. Sophie duplicates herself in order to discover who is trying to do her in. The mystery of who is trying to do Sophie in just keeps getting deeper. Every time I thought I had the villain pegged, I found out I was mistaken. Alternating points of view build up the mystery and make it very unpredictable. All of Us Were Sophie is for anyone looking for a clean read mystery!
Ok, so if I could clone myself, I am pretty sure I wouldn’t, LAWD there’s enough with only ONE of me hahahaha LOL BUT this concept and the way it was written is totally cool! Because, in order to save herself, or well one of her self, Sophie must create clones of herself to save at least one, because some one is trying to kill her. Each clone, a piece of Sophie included, will have to work to find out who is trying to kill her, why, and how to stop them from being successful. And her husband was the original person to create the duplicator, and needless to say, they both kept secrets from each other, which only adds to the mystery. Jeromy’s wife died and he wants to raise his daughters in a safe place. And somehow, he’s landed in the middle of the crazy that is Sophie and her mystery. All he wanted was normalcy and he definitely didn’t bargain for this. He’s the one called to the scene when a woman-Sophie- tells the police someone keeps trying to kill her. And she also can’t recall the last two weeks of her life, so she isn’t really helping. And the duplicates of Sophie now have different names and lightly differences in personality, and they are following all evidence that the original Sophie left for them. The writing is so imaginative, and this story line will grab you from the start. The first sentence will hook you. It’s a fantasy concept with a mystery plot line, and there’s so much to the story and the plot twists were excellent. And there’s some secondary characters that play to the suspense and suspect list of killers that made the story so much more unique. And not only that, but it’s fast paced, it has to be, because Sophie not only has to keep the killer from killing her, but to keep these other characters from becoming a victim in the cross hairs. I am quite intrigued. LOL This is definitely going to appeal to those mystery lovers, but the concept of cloning yourself, and then using the clones to solve your future murder plot was so new and fresh. I’ve loved this author’s writing style, and though it’s different from her other series, the feel of her flow just gets you caught up in the world that she’s created. A very imaginative, very entertaining, well written story! 5 PAWS!
Sophie is on the run. Hiding. Someone is trying to kill her for the information she's uncovered. She suspects who, but not sure. She's left clues hidden where she'd find them, in a form only she would understand. The only thing she has left to do, before the killer gets to her...make replicas of herself to find the clues and figure it out. The problem, the replicating machine destroys the original. Hopefully, one of the multiple selves she creates lives and figures out the clues. Resa had me from page one. Curiosity flared in me as I wondered what was going on with Sophie and what was happening. I had to keep reading to know. I found this suspenseful because you only know what the duplicate Sophie's know. Which, they have lost the memory of the original Sophie's last two weeks, and all the information and clues tie this time frame in as we acquire it. We follow the lives of the different Sophie's as they hid and solve the mystery, without dying first. Watch, and learn, as they put the clues together in different areas and with different people that have impacted Sophie's life over the years. I fell into all the characters lives. You got to see how the same person could take different paths in life, one that is very possible for all of us. I thought it was neat watching as multiples of the same interact, or have to do what needs done for the other selves. The duplicates that are together get to see how they look and sound from a viewing perspective, and know very well the thought that fuels it. It's an eye opener to the observer of ones self and know what they are thinking. Something they learn to try and improve on their selves. The book has many different aspects it touches on. Their is the science side with the replicator. Which, I will mention, the story is NOT overly science fiction. Detective work to find the killer of Sophie's husband. There is a brief touch on memory psychology with memory. Very interesting seeing all these blended into this story. Even the relations of those you would never realize are there when you speak and see others. Resa sucked me into the lives of several Sophie's. Made me worry for them and curiosity flare to life with the mystery of who and why. Resa has taken mystery and added an additional element that science fiction can add, creating a blend that keeps us reading.
