I love the chance to check out a book by an author that is new to me. I received a copy of the book Mirror Image by Michele Pariza Wacek in exchange for my honest review and I am going to share that with you now! Also, the author has a giveaway going on, so keep reading for that!
First, the author’s bio:
When Michele was 3 years old, she taught herself to read because she wanted to write stories so badly.
As you can imagine, writing has been a driving passion throughout her life. She became a professional copywriter (which is writing promotional materials for businesses), which led to her founding a copywriting and marketing company that serves clients all over the world.
Along with being a copywriter, she also writes novels (in fact, she just published her first novel, a psychological thriller/suspense/mystery called “The Stolen Twin” and her second novel “Mirror Image’” is set to be published in May 2016) plus, she is also the author of the “Love-Based Copy” books, which are a part of the “Love-Based Business” series and cover both business and personal development.
She holds a double major in English and Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Currently she lives in the mountains of Prescott, Arizona with her husband Paul and her border collie Nick and southern squirrel hunter Cassie.
And the description of the book:
Which would be worse, knowing that your dead sister has come back to life and is now a serial killer or that someone else is the killer….and that person is you?
Six months after Linda’s sister Elizabeth killed herself, Linda has finally gotten her life back to some semblance of normalcy. Until a killer appears who is stalking men … a killer who resembles Elizabeth … a killer who seems somehow familiar to Linda.
And, to make matters worse, Steve, her old high school crush and now a detective, is assigned to this case. He’s asking Linda all sorts of questions, questions Linda couldn’t possibly have an answer to.
There’s no reason for him to be investigating Linda. She couldn’t possibly have anything to do with this.
Ok, so I like to try to figure out the whodunit when I am reading. I was sure I knew what was happening, but I was wrong. And then I was sure a second time, but I was wrong again. I never would have guessed the outcome, so I was definitely on the edge of my seat. I always like to give a warning to sensitive readers that there is sexually explicit content in this book. So just a heads up for you. I especially liked the insight into the childhood of Linda and her family. The character development is phenomenal. This definitely added to the story and helps the reader understand the very strange family dynamic! Definitely a great psychological thriller that leaves you guessing. I would gladly read more books by this author in the future.
