Goodreads:  When a case of mistaken identity in Manhattan results in Gia Russo seeing a photo of a Minneapolis woman who looks exactly like her, she can’t resist reaching out to the mysterious stranger. Their Facebook private message exchange blossoms into a budding, long-distance friendship, and the two women agree to meet in New York and gauge the truth with their own eyes. 

Shocked at the sight of one another, Gia and Danielle quickly bond over drinks, childhood pictures, and an uncanny feeling that they share more than just a visual resemblance. But when they decide to end the speculation and undergo DNA testing, the test’s confirmation that they’re identical twins raises more questions than answers. 

And with good reason. The same mysterious forces that separated the sisters years ago are still at large, desperate to keep the two women apart. When the danger surrounding their reunion escalates and the sisters fear for their lives, Gia turns to an investigator whose wedding she just planned, Marc Devereraux of Forensic Instincts. 

Despite being embroiled in another case, Forensic Instincts can’t turn the panicked twins away and agrees to help. But as the team digs up skeletons long since buried, they unearth the shocking truth about who is willing to destroy the sisters and the families they have grown to love in order to save themselves. 

Kritters Thoughts:  The sixth book in a series and this is one of those series where you can read mostly out of order because the mystery is self contained, there is some character development that you may miss out on the Forensics Insights team, but I am actually two books behind, so I haven't read book 4 or 5 and I didn't feel like I was missing too much.  I would say at least read book 1 so you know how the team gets formed and then you can read this one if you want to.  

I have to start by saying I just love the team.  I love that everyone has their own nitch and each of them is a vital part of the team.  I love that once you learn everyone on the team you can get attached to one or a few and as a reader it is exciting to get a series where you care about the characters from book to book.

The mystery in this book was great.  I love the prologue which gives you a quick glimpse and then you go into the story and there are so many questions.  My big marker as to if I like a mystery book is if I am satisfied by who the "killer" is and this one was so good.  I say this often on this blog, but I don't want to divulge too much because to spoil a mystery is something I just will not do.  The way Andrea unpacks the clues they are just at the right moment and I was happy clueless and had a few AHA moments!

I will continue to read this series (and need to read book 4 and 5) because they way she constructs her books is just right!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
