Another Book By Lisa Scottoline: Think Twice

Filed under: Book Recomendations,Lisa Scottoline,Think Twice — susanbright @ 6:18 pm

Because of how much I enjoyed reading Scottoline’s book Look Again, I was really looking  forward to reading her newest book Think Twice. Unfortunately Think Twice did not measure up to Look Again. 

 The protagonist in Think Twice is Bennie Rosato, a single attorney who lives alone with her dog Bear. Bennie also happens to have an identical twin. I remember reading about Bennie and her twin sister Alice years ago in Scottoline’s earlier book Mistaken Identity. Bennie, raised by her single mother as an only child had no idea that she had a twin sister, an identical twin no less.  The first time Bennie met Alice was when she was called in to defend her after being arrested for murdering her boyfriend who just happened to be a policeman.  Alice claimed that she had been framed for murder and Bennie, being the good person she is agreed to defend her. Well, Alice is back and she is even more evil than she was in Mistaken Identity!

 Yes, Think Twice  was a page turner and somewhat entertaining, but a little cliché and predictable. It is the same old story we have read so many times. Identical twins, one good, one evil. Evil twin trades places with good twin etc, etc. Think Twice is a good weekend read, just don’t expect too much.
