Summary

Someone, somewhere, looks exactly like you....

What are the chances of meeting your double? Impossible, Jess used to say, until the day she met hers on a train. But although they looked like identical twins, their lives couldn’t be more different. Jess has no money, no job, and few prospects; her double has a fabulous life and everything that anyone could possibly wish for.

Jess is envious of her double but reasons that it’s just the way life is; that’s the way of the world, and there’s nothing she can do to change it.

Her boyfriend, Mac, has other ideas.

Secretive and elusive, she’s never sure where he is or what he’s doing, but he always has money and he always has an angle.

And now, he tells Jess, he has a plan.

Events move swiftly, and Jess thinks that maybe she’s in over her head, maybe she doesn’t want to do what Mac says.

Maybe, it’s all too risky.

But she can’t stop because she’ll lose Mac.

And she doesn’t think that she can live without him.

Nothing happens!

This never really gets going and the main character is weak and pathetic. Also a waste of a credit as it’s only 4 hours long! Such a shame as I enjoyed this author’s other book, which is why I tried this one.
