Stars: 4 out of 5
Pros: Humor and characters
Cons: Pacing a bit slow
The Bottom Line:
Characters are great
But the pace is uneven
Still, it's a great read
Nan and Bert are at it Again
Double Cross is the third book in a series about identical twin sisters
Nan and Bert.
Bert is still trying to get back on her feet after her divorce. Living next door to her identical twin,
she's currently working as a secretary for a nasty divorce lawyer, Stephanie.
The only reason she hasn't quit in search of a better boss is that her Mom and
Stephanie's Mom are good friends. But one morning, she goes into work to find
that her boss has been shot. Having solved two previous murders, Bert and Nan try to sift through the many people with grudges
against Stephanie to find the killer. Meanwhile, Bert is feeling insecure about
her relationship with her boyfriend, homicide detective Hank Goetzmann. Does
she really want to be in another relationship?
It's great to see the twins back in action. As always, they tackle their latest case with humor. However, this book was a bit slow compared to the others, which is why I'm only giving it four stars. It's enjoyable, but just not quite as good as the first two.
