Though the plot may bring to mind that familiar comic classic,The Parent Trap, the twins in this talky tale are motivated by justice, not love. Unfortunately, the scheme that Michaels's (AboutFace, etc.) bumbling protagonists cook up is so absurd and slapdash that readers will be hard-pressed to suspend their disbelief. When Atlanta Detective Aggie Jade and her clever canine, Gus, wind up in the hospital after a drug bust gone awry, she deduces that she was setup. She knows three cops within her department are involved in a drug ring, but how many others are on the take? Instead of turning to Internal Affairs, Aggie calls in her twin, Lizzie, a wealthy professional gambler who allegedly has an "agile brain," and proposes that Lizzie pose as her while she recovers in Pittsburgh. Lizzie agrees to ferret out the bad guys with the help of hunky reporter Nathan Hawk, but things get out of hand quickly when her life is threatened. The bulk of the book is told through colorless dialogue rather than action, which renders the plot and characters flat. In addition, the story rushes to its climax only to give way to a long-winded conclusion. That said, it's hard not to share in the protagonists' jubilation when the bad guys are finally brought down.

out to be a very good book. I hated it to end.

Atlanta police detective Aggie Jade is still recovering from the raid that took the life of her partner and former boyfriend---and nearly killed her and her beloved K-9. She's not ready to hit the streets again, but she's desperate to hunt down the cop killers who shattered her world. That's when she asks her identical twin sister to trade places with her.....

Lizzie Jade is as flashy and fiery as Aggie is quiet and conservative---and the high-rolling Vegas gambler loves a challenge: turning in her stiletto heels for a badge is the perfect role for Aggie's "wild card" sister. But the gusty charade gets complicated when sexy investigative reporter Nathan Hawke senses something bold and new about "Aggie" who no longer shies away from his flirtations. As Lizzie and Nathan join forces to uncover a web of lies and corruption, Lizzie finds herself giving in to his charms. But how can she confess that she's not who he thinks she is? And how can she let herself fall in love when she and her twin might have to run for their lives?
