This book was definitely a character builder! At the beginning of the story, Doris is this boring woman who's life seems to be the same thing day to day...not really living, merely just functioning. And then it all changes with a quick moment of choice on a blind date. Who Doris is by the end of the book is far more fascinating than what I ever expected when starting this book! She turns out to be quick the bad ass!
It was a unique read-I almost felt like I was reading two stories as there were two different plots going on for most of the book (hence the double part of the title)...yet it was not confusing for me to read,it made it more exciting and it kept me wondering how it would all tie together in the end.
I loved the Della character and her sassy relationship with Doris...although I pictured her as a full figured black woman and not the petite one described in the book. On the other side of the story, I was also drawn to the quick love that you could feel between Doris and Linda, the sweet little girl quickly found someone to attach too during her troubled time and it was an instant connection.
The story was a good read, adding the intelligent engineering side to it all, helped to see who Doris really was and how her brain worked, which for her was often a life saver.
If you enjoy a good mystery/romance/paranormal this is a must read!
That being said, the book did improve with several unexpected twists and a nice mix of tension with moments to breath that sprinkled in humor and some romance to more fully develop and establish Doris’ character: a strong woman with brains and a heart, and the fortunate advantage of having some military training that will aid her in the trials to come. I enjoyed the doppelganger element, and the faster pace, although I did think that so many elements were converging to create havoc and threat that losing one or two wouldn’t have harmed the story.
When I finished this book, I went back to see if I had missed great swathes of important information divulged early on, and I didn’t find it any more navigable: even knowing the players in the game. While I loved the writing because it was clever and nuanced with exceptional choices that helped fuel tension and emotion, I still feel as if there were just a few too many elements added.
I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Pretty entertaining story. I wasn't completely thrilled with Doris being a good looking female that kicks some ass, but it...Read more
