From the blockbuster New York Times bestselling author of Look Again comes a novel that makes you question the nature of evil: is it born in us or is it bred? Bennie Rosato looks exactly like her identical twin, Alice Connolly, but the darkness in Alice's soul makes them two very different women. Or at least that's what Bennie believes, until she finds herself buried alive ...more

I am reading this for my SD bookclub. Under protest. They haven't been able to pick a halfway decent book yet.

Book finished. There are so many ridiculous and stupid things in this book (I'm the real twin, no I'm the real twin!) wont even try to name them all. I'll just sum it up : Anyone ever heard of FINGERPRINTS?

I haven’t read a book quite this bad in a long time, and once again I notice when reading a terrible book that there is an author note at the end. Unfortunately even with the guilting I cannot hold back from a scathing review.

The book begins with the introduction of twins, nobody and nobody. One is an ultra-slut, the other a prim and proper successful lawyer. As predicted by the blurb, prim is drugged and thrown in a coffin, while slutty goes out and steals her life.

The story continues from here

This was not a bad book but it wasn't so good I would run out and tell everyone to read it either. It was very reminiscent of James Patterson in style - short, choppy chapters, in this case alternating between the two parallel story lines, maintaining momentum so that it was hard to put the book down. The characters were not well developed so it was hard to care what happened to them. I was more upset about the dog being hurt than I was about the leading character, but then I am a softy for anim ...more

I think I've had about enough of Alice Connelly to last me a lifetime. What a despicable character!!! To be perfectly honest, I've had about enough of this series, period.

My advice to those wanting to dip their toes into the world of Rosato and Associates...

1)Be prepared for painful Italian stereotypes
2) Have a punching bag ready for the annoying male characters
3 Roll your eyes at the immaturity level of grown women who supposedly are hot shot lawyers

I’m not sure why I keep reading Lisa Scottoline. Could be for the unintended humor in her books with their “pulse-pounding” action. I had not read any of her Rosato and Associates series so I’m not sure about the back story for this book. However, in this installment, lawyer Bennie Rosato’s evil identical twin, Alice, tries to assume Bennie’s identity to steal her money. Alice either murders or tries to murder several people, including Bennie who is taken out of action by being buried in a box ( ...more

Well, wasn't this a disappointment? As of late, Lisa's writing has slipped some in her plotting. In this book in the series about the all female law firm headed by Bennie Rosato, her evil twin Alice shows back up. When last we saw her, Alice was on a paralegal job Bennie got for her. I knew it wouldn't last long because Alice is a sociopath/psychopath killer. This book starts with Alice inviting Bennie over for dinner and telling her she has quit her job and saying she'll come work for Bennie fo ...more

Grade: C+

The premise of this book is really intriguing. It definitely had a lot of potential. I have read a few of Lisa Scottoline's novels before and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Although I enjoyed this book, I felt it was lacking some of the suspenseful elements that kept me interested in the past.

The character development was seriously lacking in this book. I didn't care about any of the characters, and I was seriously irked by how clueless some of them were. We didn't get to see much of our

First of all, I love Lisa Scottoline and her books with her wonderfully written characters. I've been to numerous events of hers in Pennsylvania. However this isn't one of her better books. This could be a stand alone book, but most will enjoy it more if they read the entire series. This book is very unbelievable especially considering it is about her long standing characters. I was shocked at the amount of liberties that Ms. Scottoline took. Bennie Rosato is a lawyer and founder of her own law ...more

Let's get this over with. I'm going to skip right to the point: I did not like it at all. I've never been one for crime novels or anything similar, but this book has been lying around my house for awhile now and I decided to give it a read.

Worst decision ever.

First off, the book started off quick-based but that only lasted for like, one chapter. I thought the tone and mood was just lifeless and dull for pretty much the whole story. And the constant shifts between character focuses? Come on, th

Horsefeathers! I don't know where that came from but I don't know where the plot for this book came from either. I love Lisa Scottoline and her characters too. I'm willing to give her a tiny bit of latitude in stretching credulity but this was absurd. If it hadn't been for the strength of her writing, her ability to move the plot along and familiar characters, I'd have thought I was reading the script for a soap opera. We didn't have amnesia but we did have the evil twin. Actually, we'd had the ...more

Why do I keep reading Lisa Scottoline? Because once upon a time she was a great mystery writer, funny, intricate, with unusual characters...
But this is the worst! Do not try it: it is trite, simplistic, soap-opera-ish. One more mistaken identity evil twin twist, and I was going to scream! One step away from the "amnesia" plot device. Horrible!
Your classic soap storyline ...

That review headline isn't exactly a criticism; it's more of a term of endearment. Because the fact is that this book is VERY easy to read and goes like lightning. I started it in the sun on July 5 and finished it that same evening, and was entertained most of the time.

However, it's definitely a plot I've seen on CSI and most certainly a plot that's been used on many a soap. It's the classic good twin/evil twin story, and of course the evil twin tries to take over

Another doppelganger tale..., February 5, 2010

OK -- does anyone but me have a problem with a book that uses the old "switched places" thing between identical twins? I remember this ploy from way back in the old Patty Duke Show days (sorry, I date myself), and it was lame then and remains so now. I don't care if Alice and Bennie are IDENTICAL twins -- they are NOT so much of a mirror image that their intimate friends can't tell the difference! The most recent novel I read that uses this device,

Lisa Scottoline is one of my favorite authors and so I was very excited to begin reading this latest book revolving around the Rosato and Associates law firm. It did not disappoint. Revolving around the fact that Alice, Bennie's twin sister, takes over Bennie's life and attempts to completely ruin it. The chapters were very short, which is the case in many of her books, and although this structure might make most books come across as very choppy, it only helped to enhance the book. Each chapter ...more

Fast action, unlikely plot with somewhat predictable outcomes, but this book grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go. Identical twins Bennie Rosato and Alice Connelly were separated at birth and raised in entirely different circumstances. Bennie became a powerful Philadelphia attorney and Alice became a brilliant but pathological thief, drug seller, and con artist. Alice devises a plan to take over Bennie's life just long enough to get her money and escape to another country. This involv ...more

This book was amazing! I couldn't put it down, and read it in three days. I even got scolded by some of my teachers. Everything about this book kept me hooked. I can't wait to read more books by her!
In the story Bennie helps her identical twin sister she (didn't know she had) Alice escape a jail sentence and now Alice is jealous of everything Bennie has. Alice tries to murder Bennie and buries her alive in a box, thinking she is dead. Alice starts to live Bennie's life and takes over completely

Park your sense of reality in the garage and jump right into Think Twice, a suspense novel built upon an incredible premise, but fun anyway. Benny Rosato, head of an all female law firm, is blindsided by her identical twin, Alice. No matter that Benny saved her from a murder rap; Alice is insanely jealous of her sister's hard earned fortune, and cooks up an intricate plot to put herself, literally, in her sister's place.

Author Scottoline must have had a wonderful time plotting this one out. Inc

This was not a bad mystery/thriller, but it was particularly great either. It was entertaining, if far-fetched. There were enough plot holes to drive a trailer truck through - starting with a person who had little legal training impersonating a lawyer and ending with a person with no ID and no passport being allowed to board an airplane and enter another country. Holy moly - I can suspend disbelief on many counts, but there are limits. The storyline is simple enough - twins sisters, one good and ...more

I got this book for next to nothing at a used book sale at my library. I picked up several authors I had not read before/knew nothing about. I would have to say I would probably pass on this author again. I wasn't a huge fan of her writing style, and the chapter arrangement was a little over the top. At one point I was looking at two separate chapters while the book was open(one on the left page, another on the right?). I think when I finished I had read through chapter 1,000.

Recommends it for: Any mystery, adventure, legal fiction lover.
Recommended to Richard by: I read all her work.
Wow! The pace of this new outing of good twin Bennie Rosato/evil twin Alice Connelly makes Jack Bauer look like Rip van Winkle.

Warning...if you tend to claustrophobia, do not read this book. The vivid descriptions of being locked in a box are enough to give you the cold sweats. However, if you do read it, you will be greatly entertained by the antics of Bennie and her merry band from her legal office, their families and friends. Or is it Alice entertaining you with Bennie's merry band?

This is my second book of Lisa Scottline. The plot was very predictable but the story line really grabs you from the beginning till the end. The story about identical twins Bennnie Rosato- a successful lawyer and the Alice Connolly with lots of trouble in life. Alice tries to impersonate Bennie taking over her work,seducing her boy friend and her apartment. It is fast quick crime thriller. It reminded me of old Bollywood movies. It was entertaining but I was not wowed by it.

This was my first Lisa Scottoline book. I bought it at a book sale for only a hundred peso and I can say that it was worth it! There are two main characters in the story. One was Bennie Rosato and the other was Alice Conelly. They are identical twins. Bennie was the good guy and Alice was the bad. I really like Alice more because she is smart and cannot be fooled easily. In the other hand, Bennie has the driven personality who concentrates mainly on her profession.

Somewhat a sequel to the earlier "Mistaken Identity", this story again features the principal of Rosato and Associates, Bennie Rosato, and yet another run-in with the woman claiming to be her lookalike twin. Unfortunately, it lacked the suspense of the earlier novel, and the constant claims and counterclaims of each lady that the other was trying to impersonate the other, got very tiresome. While the situation was at first good for a few laughs, you can only run a gag like that for so long -- th ...more

This book was a fast and enjoyable read. The first few pages did not tip me off to the storm of action that was to follow. The characters were likable and well crafted, the scenes were well set, and the voices were strong and distinct--all the things I look for in a quick, easy read.

This was my first Lisa Scottoline book, and I was introduced to her books through a fellow author who suggested that our voices were similar. I had to take a peek. I'm glad I read Think Twice, and I'll look for othe
