Naïve, country girl, Cynthia Freitas, moves to the big city with high hopes, but her starting salary barely makes rent in a run-down tenement. Newspaper headlines warn of a serial killer in the neighborhood, and the article grabs her attention when she recognizes the victims bear a striking resemblance to her. Alex Carlyle is assigned to assist detectives in one of the toughest cases he’s ever experienced as a cop. Despondent over a recent break-up with his fiancé, he buries himself in his work until he meets the cute new tenant next door who gives him something else to think about except kidnap and murder. The aftermath of their first “jolting” kiss places the burden on Cynthia to solve Alex’s case and keep him from potentially becoming the next victim. Previously published as Beside MyselfReviews:A fun, sometimes tongue-in-cheek tale, cleverly written so that the reader is never confused as to who is who and in which body--sounds complicated just explaining it, but Ginger Simpson was on the ball. Excellent, thoroughly enjoying…was fun to read. Four Cats from Wild Child Publishing …I had to keep a tissue handy to wipe away the tears. This is one of the most entertaining suspense novels that I have ever read. 5 Cups from Coffee Time …A truly enjoyable read that will keep you reading the whole way through. This story not only had a great suspenseful plot that kept me intrigued, it also had some really great humor. When Alex was learning to walk in heels and put on make-up, I was laughing so hard brought tears to my eyes. Ginger Simpson has done a remarkable job in creating a story that I would highly recommend. 4.5 Blue Ribbons from Romance Junkies
