Within a year Sandra sold her first novel, Love's Encore, under the name Rachel Ryan taken from the first names of her two children. June 29, Want to Read saving…. Thanks for telling us about the problem. They had two children, Rachel and Ryan. In Brown detoured from romantic suspense to write, Rainwater, a much acclaimed, powerfully moving historical fiction story about honor and sacrifice during the Great Depression.
What Melina never expected was to be awakened by the police notifying her of her sister's murder with clues left that point to her being the original target.
The last person to see Gillian alive was Melina's celebrity client and the two end up joining forces to hunt down whoever killed Gillian. The Switch was one of those books that easily should have been a five star as it definitely gained my interest from the opening pages and kept it throughout the story.
However, as much as I am a fan of those twists and turns and shocking the reader as the last moment there was just one little detail in those final moments I don't think really added up. I received a free copy of this novel from the publisher. For more reviews please visit https: I wasn't sure if this was going to work for me. But I persevered and I must say this lady can spin a yarn. As with most books by Sandra Brown, you are better off not knowing too much about them, except maybe the premise.
It isn't the first time that identical twins Gillian and Melina Lloyd have switched iden I wasn't sure if this was going to work for me. Melina, the more impetuous twin, proposes that her circumspect sister take her place as a media escort to NASA astronaut and national hero Colonel Christopher "Chief" Hart.. Wine, she thought. Maybe it would relax her enough to sleep View all 23 comments. I'm never disappointed when I read a Sandra Brown's book. She has become synonymous with a one-click for me.
The Switch was an addictive story with enough suspense and romance to make me want to stop doing anything else but read, The Setting: A pair of twins, Melina and Gillian Lloyd are having lunch together. During it, Gillian informs Melina that she has gone through an artificial insemination that morning.
Melina is happy for her sister and she knows Gillian's current boyfriend is fine with i I'm never disappointed when I read a Sandra Brown's book. Melina is happy for her sister and she knows Gillian's current boyfriend is fine with it too.
Melina advises she should do something to distract herself. She proposes switching places just like they used to do when they were little. The twins are so identical that no one can tell them apart.
Gillian declines. She's not about to behave like a kid again and she heads home instead. Chief is a well-known NASA astronaut whom everyone loves. Melina and "Chief" hit it off from the get-go. They are attracted to each other and by the end of the night, moving to his suite to end the night together sounded like the perfect plan.
The next morning, Melina's nightmare begins. Her twin sister is found stabbed to death. The writing on the wall implies that someone had seen Melina and Chief together and they had assumed it was Gillian. The twin is devastated by her loss and she wants answers. Chief is stricken too. Together they will look for the truth behind the murder.
What they discover is something dark and twisted. My thoughts: I hated to see one of the twins go. Together they were fun and so very close to each other. But, I guess it was necessary in order for the remaining twin and Chief to go looking for the killer.
I liked Chief. He was there for her to the end. Chief had his own turmoils in regards to his race and what to do with his future after NASA. He was slow to admit his true feelings but I understood his conflicting emotions.
The big baddie was truly an ugly human if you can call him that. Talk about Narcissistic personality. He checked all the boxes with his grandiose ideas. Sadly, I'm sure there's a crazy guy out there just like him. The Switch had two good twists or maybe just one. I guess I can say, I saw it coming but I still enjoyed the reactions it provoked. As a side note, I thought The Switch's audio was well done.

I'd rather spend my precious reading time on something I really enjoy. My summary can best be summed up by this discussion: All in 1 day. As a side note, this book seemed more like a vehicle for the author to write repressed sexual fantasies from 9th grade versus a real story. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

There's an underlying premise that the astronaut called Chief the H of the story slept with one sister and then spends the rest of the story lusting after the other twin. This had an ick factor for me even while I tried to wait for the ick to go away. Took way too long to get there. I simply don't buy that they didn't stay at the house after the twin chat. There was a guest bedroom, you wouldn't 2.
There was a guest bedroom, you wouldn't drive back to a house that wasn't yours. But then the whole story of them on the run would just go away. This felt stupid and contrived. So two of the primary premises failed for me and it's hard to buy into the plot which had so much potential.

The following day, Melina receives terrible news that her twin has been murdered brutally and the Col is the prime suspect.
This book is a fast pacer, turn pager Too far-fetched and the romance was meh. Jan 24, -ya rated it liked it Shelves: An unbelievable premise can sometimes turn into an entertaining book. The romance and storyline seem contrived despite the ambitious plot point like a villain with a delusional god complex and nefarious enterprise. Not my favorite. View all 10 comments. Tem um estilo que me agrada muito. Sobre o livro, tenho alguma coisas a dizer.
Portanto, gostei mesmo do livro. A autora conseguiu isso. Que ideia macabra. Gostava que eles tivessem ficado juntos. Concluindo, outro livro muito bom. View 2 comments. Sandra Brown tem aquele toque de ligar o romance ao policial que ela bem sabe e por isso torna o enredo deveras apelativo.
Vou ler mais obras desta senhora! Principalmente se comparar com o "Uma Voz na Noite". Aug 02, Rissa rated it liked it. Aug 04, Hava rated it liked it Recommends it for: Sandra Brown fans.
I quite enjoyed this book, but with some caveats. I sat in the bathroom on the floor for almost an hour, reading, convincing myself that it wouldn't hurt to read for "just" five more minutes. I finally made myself go to bed. However, when I got to the end of the book and realized what Sandra Brown had done, I started to think back on the book, and I wasn't so in love with it. I don't want to give anything aw I quite enjoyed this book, but with some caveats.
I don't want to give anything away, but if it really happened the way that Sandra was saying that it did, then the inner narration on the part of the surviving twin doesn't make any sense.
She thought things that she wouldn't have, because she'd have already known the truth. In other words, she was confused by things that she shouldn't have been confused by. However, if you want a fast read that enjoyable, then go for it. He had just left a career as a news anchor and talk-show host to form his own production company, so why shouldn't she take a creative risk, too?
