Urban legend says that everyone has a double, or exact look-alike. Would you search for yours? And if you found them, would you risk your life for theirs?
When a chance encounter outside the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan results in mistaken identity, wedding planner Gia Russo is curious to find the person whose cell phone picture has been shown her—veterinarian Dr. Danielle Murano, her exact look-alike. A Facebook private message blossoms into a budding, long-distance friendship, and the two women agree to meet in New York and see the truth for their own eyes.
Shocked at the sight of one another, they quickly bond over drinks, childhood pictures and an uncanny feeling that they share more than just a visual resemblance. Together they decide to end the speculation and undergo DNA testing for siblingship. But when the tests confirm they’re identical twins, more questions are raised than answered.
And with good reason. The same mysterious forces that separated the sisters years ago are still at large, frantic to keep the two women apart. Their attempts to do so become more violent once it becomes clear that the two sisters have found each other. But when the danger escalates and the sisters fear for their lives, Gia turns to a former client of her wedding planning company, Marc Devereraux of Forensic Instincts, for help.
Despite being embroiled in another case, Forensic Instincts agrees to help Gia and Danielle discover who has been threatening them. And when Forensic Instincts discovers that this case is linked to the [Mafia, Organized Crime], they must dig up skeletons better left buried, and get at the frightening truth without destroying the sisters and the families they have grown to love.

I’ve read a few of Ms. Kane’s historical suspense novels and enjoyed them. I’ve seen the rave reviews of her Forensic Instincts novels. Still, I wasn’t going to read A Face to Die For… until I read the excerpt. It pulled my in so thoroughly I couldn’t say no. Now, I’m left wondering, what took me so long… and how am I going to catch up!?!?
What I liked: I really enjoyed how A Face to Die For began from several separate perspectives and was pulled together slowly as the characters intertwined. It may have been a bit confusing in the first couple of pages but it makes for a much deeper and more intricate plot.
Gosh! It’s hard to write this review without spoiling it! What I can say is that A Face to Die For is going down as a favorite and I’ll absolutely read this again. I think I’ll love it even more the second time knowing the twists are coming!
I really loved how the cases were linked and how cleverly the girls lives have been manipulated. To me, A Face to Die For was so much more scary because of how plausible Ms Kane made this. There were many times I had to remind myself it was fiction!
What I didn’t like: Not only was it really difficult to put A Face to Die For down, I found myself adjusting my book budget & schedule to read the Forensic Instincts novels I’ve missed!
