Think Twice (Rosato & Associates #11)
Bennie Rosato may look exactly like her identical twin but the darkness in Alice Connolly's soul makes them two very different women. Or that's what Bennie believes until she finds herself buried alive at the hands of her twin. Alice tak
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?
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 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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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, ...more
Author Scottoline must have had a wonderful time plotting this one out. Inc ...more

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 ...more
this book goes between 3 people. alice, mary, and bennie. alice and bennie are twins. they have the same mom but alice was given away for adopt ...more
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 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 ...more
Bennie Rosato and her law firm full of female lawyers is back for what may very well be the last installment of this long-running series.
This will seem like a series of spoilers, but you can find all of these items on the back cover of the book: Bennie Rosato's long-lost twin (introduced in the book Mistaken Identity ) turns out to be an evil twin who kidnaps Bennie, buries her alive and takes over her life.
So, ignoring the fact that seems that the premise was ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
It was hard to put down at times! I had to remind myself to do my work.
I hated the fact that Alice got away.
I was shooting her square in the forehead and making sure she saw ot and me coming and let it be over with....She caused way too much grief.
But I understand why Fiorella didn't let Bennie do i ...more

2. I can't believe that I actually finished the book
3. The book was about 100 chapters to long given the story.
4. Even with the book being 100 chapters to long, they still couldn't given it anything but an super cheezy ending.
