About the book:
The Switch by Sandra Brown is a romantic suspense standalone novel that was originally published in Aug of 2000. Grand Central Publishing is now reissuing this title and of course since it’s long been on my TBR I was happy to receive a new edition to be able to read and review.
Melina and Gillian are identical twins that have amazed everyone their entire lives at just how much alike they are. Now as adults both have their own jobs and lives but are still just as close as they had always been.
When Gillian and Melina get together in order for Gillian to share the news she has gone ahead with her plan to have a baby Melina thinks the occasion needs a celebration. Being a media escort Melina has a huge client that night that she knows Gillian would love to meet so she suggests they pull the switcharoo they used to do as kids.
What Melina never expected was to be awakened by the police notifying her of her sister’s murder with clues left that point to her being the original target. The last person to see Gillian alive was Melina’s celebrity client and the two end up joining forces to hunt down whoever killed Gillian.
The Switch was one of those books that easily should have been a five star as it definitely gained my interest from the opening pages and kept it throughout the story. However, as much as I am a fan of those twists and turns and shocking the reader as the last moment there was just one little detail in those final moments I don’t think really added up. Having loved the rest of the story though and at over 500 pages just keeping my attention that long deserves the 4 1/2 stars from me and if you haven’t already read this one I’d definitely recommend checking it out.
I received a free copy of this novel from the publisher.
