My Rating: 4/5

I found the premise of this book to be very intriguing. Although completely fiction, it is based on a true case of mistaken identity between two individuals. Jacquelyn is a really great writer. This was the first time I'd read anything by her and I really enjoyed it. I found the entire book very realistic from the characters, to the reactions of those surrounding Bridget and Maureen etc. It took me a little while to read so if you're reading it now or plan to do so in the future, don't get discouraged if it doesn't grab your attention immediately. It was one of those books that takes a little while to get started.
