I’m tired this morning. “Why?” you might ask. Well, you see, yesterday afternoon I started reading this book and I couldn’t put it down. Finally, at 2:00 am, I closed the book because I knew I needed to get some sleep since I had to come in to work today. Mirror Images by Laurel Norlander definitely drew my attention. I kept reading because I really wanted to get to the bottom of what was going on in this strange small town.
Madison James Kawolski has left her home in Chicago to attend the funeral of a man she once loved, Ross Bauer. This man had hurt her deeply when he took all of her savings and left her without a backward glance. Madison is shocked to see the man she believed was dead standing at the graveside. When one of the locals sees her reaction, she learns the man she knew had a twin and she began to realize that maybe she didn’t know Ross Bauer at all. The small town seems to have its share of gossips and soon Madison finds it’s also got its share of secrets. What happened to Ross Bauer? Will Madison ever get the money that was stolen from her back? Will she ever fill the hole in her life?
Norlander does a wonderful job of keeping you guessing throughout this book. Just when you think you might have something figured out, another twist is thrown at you and you are as confused and frustrated as the main character is in her search for the truth. But through it all, there is the underlying theme of letting go of the past and looking forward to a future.
I give this book four and a half out of five stars
