Think Twice (Rosato & Associates Series #11) by Lisa Scottoline

Is evil born in us—or is it bred? That is the question at the heart of this penetrating novel from blockbuster New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline

Bennie Rosato looks exactly like her identical twin, Alice Connelly, but the darkness in Alice's soul makes them two very different women. Or at least that's what Bennie believes—until she finds herself buried alive at the hands of her twin.

Meanwhile, Alice takes over Bennie's life, impersonating her at work and even seducing her boyfriend in order to escape the deadly mess she has made of her own life. But Alice underestimates Bennie and the evil she has unleashed in her twin's psyche. Soon Bennie, in her determination to stay alive long enough to exact revenge, must face the twisted truth that she is more like Alice than she could have ever imagined . . . and by the novel's shocking conclusion, Bennie finds herself engaged in a war she cannot win—with herself.

With its blistering speed, vivid characters, and perplexing moral questions, Think Twice is a riveting emotional thriller that will keep readers breathless until the very last page.

Lisa Scottoline hooks you from the first page. I have read hundreds of books and this one is sincerely a page turner. The characters draw you in immediately. It forces you to acknowledge that there is evil and good in the world. It also makes you question how well your friends and boyfriend knows you. I have relatives who are identical twins and I believe we would be able to tell if one was impersonating the other. This book nags at you questioning, If need be could you prove you were you when someone has already took over and convinced your co-workers and friends. I did not expect the ending to be as it was. I wanted a more final ending but I guess this may lead to a sequel. This is a good read and a great book for thrill seekers.

I have read just about every book Lisa Scottoline has written and Think Twice is among her best yet! I love the physical set up of the book - shorter chapters with the focus of each chapter on a different character. Reading her book was certainly like watching a movie unfold. I enjoy Lisa's characterization too. My favorite character in this book was Fiorella Bucatina! Not only is that a great name, but Scottoline did wonders with her and the dialogue among the Italian family. We hear about people stealing identities today, but what if the person trying to be you looks exactly like you too. Friends and family can't tell the difference and no one will believe that you are the real you. In Think Twice, Bennie Rosato has to deal with her evil twin not only taking over her identity but trying to silence Bennie for good. It's certainly a mad rush to the finish-line in Lisa Scottoline's novel. The only thing you won't have to think twice about is turning the pages fast enough to see if good will conquer evil or if this time evil will finally win out.

I look forward to Lisa's new book every year. I was so excited that she was returning to Mary and Benny and Judy. I wasn't crazy about the plot line with Alice being able to take over Benny's life but I love the characters so much that it was still a great way to spend a couple of afternoons immersing myself in the lives of my favorite lady lawyers. Lisa is one of my absolute favorite authors and I'm already wishing she had another new book coming out next month. Lisa Scottoline fans may be slightly disappointed in this book but not enough to quit lining up to get her next book.

If you don't have a twin.BE THANKFUL! This is a brilliant mix of ingredients for gut-wrenching suspense, Lisa Scottoline introduces her readers to Bennie Rosato and Alice Connolly, identical twins, in appearance only. In intense emotional layers, chilling controversy will grab you by the throat and heart throughout. They are identical twins separated at birth because their mother could not afford to keep them, but kept Bennie Rosato anyway and gave up Alice Connolly for adoption. They met as adults, by chance. Bennie Rosato looks exactly like her identical twin, Alice Connolly, but the darkness in Alice's soul makes them two very different women. The battle between good and evil is brought out all the way through the book and it will keep you laughing, crying, frowning, and never putting the book down!

I always look forward to reading Lisa Scottoline's next book about Bennie and her Philadelphia law firm. Think Twice was no exception, until I actually started reading...I did not find the book at all believable and it was not just the evil twin concept I had trouble with. Think Twice was not nearly as interesting or enjoyable as Scottoline's previous books. Usually I have trouble putting her books down; this time I had trouble trying to get to the ending. For those of us who are fans, I hope Lisa Scottoline continues to write the Bennie Rosato series, but I hope she goes back to writing the way she wrote prior to Think Twice.

They are identical twins separated at birth as their mom could not afford even one of them, but kept Bennie Rosato and gave up Alice Connolly for adoption. They met as adults (see dead Ringer) and now Bennie is at Alice's new rental home having dinner. Alice tells Bennie she quit her job as a paralegal at the Public Law Group in Philadelphia and asks her twin for a job at Rosato & Associates. Suddenly Bennie complains about a headache while hearing her sister mumble "Give it up. It's over." Bennie awakens to find herself inside a box with a bleeding knee and no food, water, or air hole. Unbeknownst to Bennie, Alice had not rented the house, but instead knew the owner Ms. Sally Cavanaugh was in the Pocono's so she took it over to serve her sister wine with Rophynol. Alice had to vanish because she cheated on her drug dealing boyfriend Q who will kill her so she became Bennie but could not murder her sister as the thought of looking at her own face on a corpse was nauseating so she buried her alive. Now she acts as Bennie to access her sister's wealth and Bennie's former boyfriend Grady. However, Bennie is coming with vengeance in her heart. In spite of wondering why Bennie failed to learn her lesson re Alice after Dead Ringer, fans will enjoy her latest adventures from the moment she realizes where she is trapped as Lisa Scottoline explores nurturing vs. naturing with the separated at birth twins. This fast-paced thriller has the audience wondering what will happen when benevolent Bennie catches up to malevolent Alice. Although the premise of a twin killing and taking over the identity of her sibling has been used before (see Bette Davis' movie Dead Ringer) and the escape from the coffin is exhilarating over the top of the Pocono's, Think Twice is a terrific character driven tale.

I am sorry to say that I did not feel the writing of 'Think Twice' contained much depth. Once I started the book, I did want to finish the storyline. I typically find that in a well-written book, I am caught up in the characters and plot. In this book, I found that I just needed to find out what happened in the end.

The ever humorous and exciting character of Bennie Rosato is back in an adventure that could cost her life when her much kept-away-from twin sister, Alice Connelly, physically and mentally enters Bennie's life. Bennie is the head of a successful Philadelphia law firm that has many good lawyers, most of who are employees Bennie considers good friends, not just employees. The twins were separated when they were born because their parents couldn't raise one much less two children. When Bennie found out she had a twin sister and also discovered that Alice was a no good tramp, she avoided her at all costs. So when Alice showed up at Bennie's house, Bennie tried to get rid of her but thought she would give Alice a chance again. Wrong move! Before long, Alice had slipped Bennie a drug to knock her out and knock Bennie out it did. When Bennie started to come back to realization, she found herself in a confined space of some sort and could not move much at all and had NO air. She discovered the top of the box, or whatever it was, was made of wood. She clawed, scraped, kicked, threw her arms, legs, and whatever she could to move or get oxygen without much success. Then she heard strange sounds coming from above that sounded as though an animal was digging from the top trying to get to the "food" that was under that wood. Meanwhile, the completely different personality and life style twin sister was quickly learning how to become Bennie so she could obtain all of Bennie's money and live her life in such a better lifestyle than she always had. Alice was a slut so it took much changing and not just in appearance to run Bennie's law firm and how to learn how to treat all the employees. Mary DiNunzio was one of the firms' best lawyers and one of Bennies best friends. Mary and Bennie had discussed the possibility that she might become partner in the firm soon. Alice, acting as Bennie, took over Bennie's home, money, old boyfriend, and undertook her total takeover of Bennie's life but really entered a ton of problems when dealing with Bennie's family, Mary's family, and Judy Carrier and her family. Judy was a best buddy of Bennie and Mary. The Italian family was one Alice avoided when she could. When Bennie, all banged up and broken, finally escaped the box Alice had buried her in, the problems really began for Bennie. Alice had arranged to financially take over Bennie's life so she could have a rich life after she got away from all that knew her. Even the law authorities didn't know which twin was Bennie. There is much humor, love, disputes of all kinds, even some law (Bennie is a lawyer!) gets worked in with Alice being involved in cases she faintly knew about. The battle between right and evil is brought out in "Think Twice" all the way through the book and it will have you laughing, crying, moving your legs trying to run while reading, and never knowing what the next page will bring. An excellent story. Thanks Lisa. Keep them coming.

I was very disappointed in this book. The plot was not believable, the ending was obvious from the beginning and the Italian characters were stereotypes and somewhat insulting to Italians. When I finished it I was glad to be done with it and wondering why I wasted my time. Jessica

I must admit that I am addicted to Lisa Scottoline and the world she creates in Philadelphia. This is another plot based on Benedetta's twin sister. It was well worth the read, but I think she should stop working that plot line.

A little too improbable for my taste, otherwise a good suspense, well written.

This was my first book by this author, sad to say it will be the last. I didn't like anyone but the dog and he wasn't in the story much. I ended up skimming around the middle of the book just to get to the end.
