While The Book Review tries to help promote new releases, there are so many wonderful books out there yet to be discovered and enjoyed, I decided to start the weekly Hidden Gems & Buried Treasures feature. Each week, The Book Review will feature a spotlight and
review of a book, from a variety of genres, that is at least five years old. Some may be rare, out of print, or not yet available in electronic book format, while others will hopefully help draw attention to the author's latest release or upcoming title.
This week's Hidden Gem is
Switch by Sandra Brown:
ABOUT THE BOOK:
READ AN EXCERPT:
The Switch by Sandra Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Switch by Sandra Brown is a 2013 Grand Central Publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This book was originally published back in 2000 but was reissued by Grand Central a few years ago. I have read many of Sandra Brown’s romantic suspense novels, but this one slipped by me somehow.
The temptation identical twins have to switch places with one
The switch should have been harmless, but when Gillian is murdered, Melina knows it should have been her that died, which makes her determined to find out who killed her sister and make them pay. Unfortunately, Chief was the last person to see Gillian alive, which lands him right in the middle of the investigation. Working together, he and Melina uncover a shocking scenario with far reaching consequences, and that discovery puts a huge bullseye on their backs.
This was one wild story, I have to tell you. Multi-layered, with lots of hairpin turns, twists, and truly diabolical bad guys, this one held my attention all the way through. Now, I have to confess, the plot was pretty far out there in terms of plausibility, but the story
I did guess at a few major plot twists, but, it did not impact my enjoyment of the book. Overall, this was an interesting and unique set up, quite imaginative, taut with suspense and a steamy romance to cap things off.
This one was not exactly what I was expecting when I picked it up, but I was entertained by it and reminded of why I love to read Brown’s novels.
