Summary

The sun breaks through the clouds to shine on a little cottage where a mossy path leads to the front door, but inside something terrible has happened....

Police photographer Sukey Reynolds is looking forward to a quiet weekend gardening at home, when she gets a call that there has been a shocking break-in at a local manor house. Once she begins to gather evidence, Sukey realizes that this is the latest in a spate of well-crafted burglaries in the Cotswolds. Someone is targeting expensive houses with valuable art collections....

Thankfully, the police soon have a suspect in custody. But, during questioning, he suddenly catches a glimpse of Sukey, turns deathly pale and calls out to her. Sukey is sure she has never met this man before.... Is this a bizarre joke, or is there a stranger out there who is Sukey’s perfect double in every way?

Just as Sukey begins to suspect she’s being followed, the police are baffled by a spate of local murders. With the body count rising, and the police unsure of where to turn, is Sukey herself a clue in this strange case? Can she unmask the killer before she becomes the next victim?  

A murder mystery for fans of Agatha Christie, Joy Ellis, and Faith Martin from the best-selling queen of cozy crime.  

This book was previously published as Copycat.

Very entertaining

This is a very entertaining cozy mystery with a well written plot. There are several twists but Sukey and the police finally sort everything out. I enjoyed this one and will get the next book.

the main character was just too dumb.

I could not figure out how the author picked his heroin. she was just too dumb to be believed. I don't enjoy a character that is so obviously obtuse but not at all funny.
