Tess has a quiet life. She's working at the local library and spends as much time as she can with her alcoholic father. Tess's world is being turned upside down when she spots her doppelganger walking down the street, entering a hotel. Tess decides to follow her and that is how she meets Mimi. Mimi is bolder than Tess, she isn't afraid to go after what she wants, but there are also many similarities. Mimi and Tess even share a birthday. They have so much in common that it isn't likely that their extreme likeness is just a coincidence. Who is this woman and why has she suddenly entered Tess's life?
Having a lookalike doesn't mean Tess can trust Mimi though. When Tess is at the police station answering questions about a body that has been found in a local marsh she doesn't have a choice and has to share her story about Mimi. What is Mimi's involvement in this tragedy and will she be believed? According to Mimi they are identical twins. Tess hasn't seen her mother in years, so is it possible she was gone raising another daughter all this time? Will Tess be able to get to the truth before it's too late to prove her innocence?
The Wrong Sister is a fantastic gripping story. Mimi is a complete mystery, which is something I absolutely loved. I was totally mesmerized by the secrets that surround her and couldn't wait to find out more about her fascinating personality. Mimi encourages Tess to step out of her comfort zone, to be bolder and more forward. They are opposites in some ways, but there are also many common characteristics. Tess is reluctant to let Mimi in, but the woman's persistence wins her over every single time. I was anxious to find out more about their connection, their past and the revelations that are being done. Each step of their journey kept me on the edge of my seat.
T. E. Woods has a fabulous compelling writing style. Her vivid descriptions, skillful distribution of the exact right amount of tension and amazing presentation of a large number of interesting puzzles kept me intrigued from beginning to end. The Wrong Sister constantly surprised me, which made me eager to keep reading. The story has a great fast pace and there are plenty of terrific twists and turns that constantly piqued my curiosity. I really enjoyed reading this marvelous thrilling book and can't recommend it enough.
