Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Pepper's newest whodunit (following last year's One Cold Night) is a suspenseful, well-written yarn that will leave most readers guessing until the final (albeit derivative) twist. Narrator Annie Milliken, a young mother, having recently found evidence that her husband, Bobby, has been cheating, decides to leave him for a new life in New York State with her identical twin sister, Julie. The happy reunion is marred when a murdered woman—who bears a striking resemblance to the Milliken twins—is found on Julie's property, just as Annie and her infant daughter arrive. Uncertain whether the killer was targeting them, and unsettled by Bobby's presence at the scene, Annie finds things going from bad to worse when she herself becomes a suspect. Though the plot may be a little hard to swallow, and the villain's motivation is a little undercooked, those looking for a quick, distracting thrill will find it here. (May)

Product Description

“Suspense at a high level.” –Midwest Book Review

WHERE DOES THE TRUTH END—AND THE ULTIMATE BETRAYAL BEGIN?

When she discovers e-mail evidence of her husband’s infidelity, Annie Milliken is shattered. Dismissing his pleas of innocence, she takes their baby daughter and goes to the one person she has always trusted: her twin sister, Julie. Annie and her sister soon become as close as they were growing up, spending their days together, dressing the same, sharing the baby. But when Annie applies for a job, everything comes undone. Her credit cards are stolen just a she’s arrested for grand larceny. The police realize she is the victim of identity theft, but she has yet to understand the true scale of the crime. For when Annie turns to Julie for help, she finds that her twin sister has disappeared…along with her baby.

Now with her daughter—and her own life—on the line, Annie is going to fight for what is hers.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars May 1 2007
By AK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Annie Milliken's world begins to fall apart when she discovers that her husband has been unfaithful. Over his protestations of innocence, she leaves him, seeking shelter with her twin sister, Julie. Things continue to go downhill; a woman who bears a resemblance to the sisters is killed, Annie is arrested for grand larceny, Julie vanishes, taking Annie's baby with her, and Annie is charged with murder. Someone is trying to destroy Annie, but who? And why?

***** If you love Alfred Hitchcock classic mysteries, then do not hesitate to buy this book. Just when you think you know what is going on, a new twist springs a fresh revelation on you. Not until the very last page do the shocks end. This is a fascinating read, plain and simple. *****

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much, yet not enough Jan. 13 2012
By L. Henelsy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I really wanted to like this book and stuck with it the whole way through, mostly because I knew what the outcome was going to be, and I really do like giving books a chance to get better or add a twist that I didn't see coming. But I found myself skipping over 2-3 pages of nothing but details about stuff that didn't matter at all. The biggest issue I had, was the constant detail about breastfeeding. I'm not anti-nursing as I'm a nursing mother myself, but the way it was written into the story, a detail that kept coming up over and over again, was just not necessary.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring and Predictable Jan. 8 2012
By josie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As a rule, I always download a sample before I purchase a book and this title was no exception. This book started out ok with likable characters, however, became so bogged down with insignificant boring details. Of note, there are at least 42 references of the main character Annie and her breast feeding routines with her only child Lexy. Please, who cares? I bought this book to read a crime novel and instead I'm reading about breast pumping and feeding schedules. The book itself is narrated by the main character Annie and is too one dimensional to keep my interest. Annie thinks Bobby (her husband) is having an affair, based on CC bills and emails he is receiving from his lover. However, before Bobby can jump into action, Annie has to leave him first. He has been confronted numerous times about this, but does nothing about it? I don't know about you, but if my spouse came to me about erroneous CC bills and lover emails, I'd be all over that.

Sorry, I would not recommend this book, even for only 0.99.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Little Disturbing... July 25 2009
By C. Swayne - Published on Amazon.com
So once I got halfway through Here She Lies, I was convinced I knew the ending. Absolutely convinced. I was definitely wrong. What a twist! Anyway, this is a pretty disturbing tale about twin sisters and identity theft. Definitely will make you paranoid for a few nights, but it's an excellent read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ho hum ... **contains spoilers** Feb. 13 2013
By R. G. Rowlands - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
In a fit of idiocy I bought several Katia Lief books last week on a friend's recommendation. I randomly chose this one to read first - I see another reviewer remarked that this was by far Lief's worst book, so hopefully I have not completely wasted my money. (Oh, I see it was only $2.99 - and that's about what it's worth.)

This novel is ... well, amateur, I think, describes it best. There are moments where Lief writes well enough, and the plot occasionally engaged this reader -- hence the second star -- but by and large I found myself skip-reading and getting really irritated with the overload of spurious detail, especially, as others have noted, the whole breast-feeding thing. **Yawn** Then, although I had long since guessed the majority of the plot and was eager to get to the end so I could move on to a "real" mystery/thriller, Lief actually managed to surprise me by closing the book with a thrown-together, ill-conceived ending. After enduring Annie's fixation with her twin and her undying but wounded love for her husband (for I forget how many pages) the reader is expected to believe that she just said, "Oh well, let's forget this (insert adjectives) stuff all happened, I'm out of here." And off she goes, leaving her traitorous, snivelling husband and vile, murdering sister to live on in peace. Huh? That's IT? Ridiculous.

Sorry, Katia - I really hope your other books have more substance and better plotting.
