Title: DEAD RINGER
Author: Sharon Dunn
Publisher: Love Inspired Suspense
Genre: Inspirational/romantic suspense
Lucy Kimbol is upstairs in her loft typing flies for her fishing class when she hears noises downstairs. When she investigates, she catches somebody crawling outside her bedroom window. The intruder gets away with her most valuable fishing rod, and some jewelry. Lucy calls the police, but doesn’t expect that they will help her. She doesn’t have a good relation ship with them.
Detective Eli Hawkins is new to the small town, transferred over to help solve a string of serial killers. He is shocked to discover that Lucy is a dead ringer to the other girls that were murdered. And she’s a member of the on-line dating service that the killer frequents.
Determined to keep Lucy from being the next target, Eli rents the duplex next door to her, while stalking her when she goes on dates. But Lucy is reluctant to believe Eli’s warnings. Winning her trust is the only way to keep her safe—if he isn’t already too late.
DEAD RINGER is the most recent book by mystery writer, Sharon Dunn. I guess who the killer might be early on, but it still didn’t distract from a good read. I enjoyed getting to know suspicious, reserved Lucy, and kind considerate Eli.
If you are looking for a good romantic suspense, then DEAD RINGER would be a book to consider. Available at www.steeplehill.com, or at www.amazon.com. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $5.50. 213 pages.
