Mirror Images by Laurel Norlander has a great idea and sounds intriguing. This story is sort of a mystery, sort of a romance and mixed together. Right off the bat I like the voice of the main girl. She sounds like she is coming from riches to rags and trying to bust out of a bunch of bad luck. This story is about the city girl who goes to a small town and discovers how things run on the other side of the tracks.
I was disappointed in the constant talk of bars and drinking and birth control. Just because she is from a big city doesn’t mean the first thing she thinks of when driving down the street of this little town is how the teenage girls are getting their birth control. I was put off by it. Old towns have their charms and city girls don’t constantly wonder how and where to get the next pack of birth control. I was confused the entire time at the funeral about who she was talking about – her ex-boyfriend or his brother.
The story had potential but bottom line, I was not pulled in and taken away into their world. I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
