Great Set of Twins Back for a Second Date with Murder

Solving the Double Murder in the first book has made identical twins Nan and Bert local celebrities. Still, they have no desire to investigate another murder. But then Nan meets Crane Morgan. He's handsome and romantic, and Nan is swept completely off her feet. But Bert has reservations, especially when Louise Eagleston tells her that Crane's identical twin was accused of murder but committed suicide. When Bert goes to hear more from Louise, she finds Louise shot. Now, Bert wants to know more about what's going on, but Nan doesn't want to hear anything bad about Crane or his late brother. Can Bert find the truth while keeping both herself and Nan alive?

This is a fun book. The twins alternating narration is a nice and often funny touch and their personalities get better defined. The authors, twins themselves, have obviously gone to a lot of trouble to create these characters, and it shows. These twins have that sister dynamic down pat. They drive each other crazy but they can't live apart either. I figured out the ending before the twins, but by then I was so concerned for them that I had to keep reading.

These are great characters. I highly recommend finding these books and reading them.  And after you've read the first, you'll want to track down Double Exposure.

You'll enjoy spending more time with these characters in the Tatum Twins Mysteries in order.
