I am very happy with the honest and upfront advertising of this work being labeled "a backstory" to a full length novel. Do I even need to complain about how I have read something tagged as a short story or novella when it was really just a promotional piece? I am sure others have experienced the same frustration so it was nice to see this piece was properly labeled for us right there in the title. No guesswork involved.

This intro provided an intriguing peek into a the lives of polar opposite tw

This short story, which provides background information for the trial case that brought the twins Bennie Rosato and Alice Connelly together, was interesting to read, but was lacking in some areas. First off, there were minor proofreading errors that distracted me, but that is the least problem. Second, the writing style was somewhat different than most of Scottoline's works. It may just be due to the fact that it was a short story, and her writing style works more efficiently for a long novel, b ...more

This is a good idea for readers who haven't recently read the earlier books in Scottoline's Rosato & Associates series. It repeats the initial meeting between Bennie Rosato and her evil twin, Alice Connolly, and tells the story of the first meeting from Alice's point of view, which is the only new material in this brief "bonus" book. Then it gives the first chapter or two of Think Twice. It's a good refresher if you don't remember the earlier books in the series; otherwise, just dive into Th ...more

3.5 stars - This was a Kindle Freebie. The first part tells the meeting between Bennie and Alice from both their points of view, then it includes the first 2 chapters from the book. It was interesting reading about their meeting from their opposites viewpoints and opposing personalities. I read this book a while ago, so it was a good refresher into the characters. It's basically like the extras on a movie DVD, a deleted scene.
Well this teaser short story did it's job. It whet my appetite for more. I just put the audio book of Think Twice on hold at the library. So if publishers are wondering if releasing these free short story prequels works to sell more books... Well kind of. LOL book budget quite limited at the moment but if it weren't, yeah I'd be buying instead of using the library. :-)

Great prequel story to hook your interest. Glad I read Think Twice before this one, because otherwise the cliff hanger would have irritated me. What I really want to read is the story of the trial that happens between this one and the beginning of Think Twice! Once again I find myself liking Alice more than Bennie.

It didn't add anything to the main "Think Twice" story. It just reconfirmed that Alice is a manipulator and had been planning to play Bennie since before they met. One good point-it let you know that Bear is a Golden Retriever.

This book give the background for the first book in a series or something like that. Sorry but this book did not make me want to buy the Think Twice book. The book just did not interest me enough to wonder what happened to either woman. This was a free book in the Kindle Store.

In this short part we get to see how Bennie and Alice met.

This story didn't really add much to the main book, having read that first. Finished it on the train ride into the city.
