Great Fun!

This clever mystery has all the elements of a ripping good story - lost heiress, a greedy uncle, sinister cousins, and a spunky, likable heroine. Reminiscent of Agatha Christie's work, The Impersonator is a rollicking good read and apparently first in a series. I have a fondness for Old Hollywood mysteries, and I have a feeling that's where Jessie/Leah might be headed. Can't wait to find out!

There was lots to like about this book (especially in the narrated Audible version), but in the end it's just a high 3 for me--I'm certainly not going to run around recommending it, or wait on tenterhooks for upcoming tomes from the same author. But it was a fun, enjoyable read, so a "high 3" on the scale.

Quibbles: yes, the main character was a bit Mary-Sue-ish, and it's hard to accept some aspects of the central premise (I know if I showed up after a bazillion year absence, I'd been Apologizing like crazy for making everyone think I was dead, something that never happened here, and I couldn't get over the protagonist, her uncle, and the author's belief that if one can account fully for one's actions in the last seven years, and prove it, then one will automatically be accepted as a completely different person prior to the last seven years--it maketh no sense.

The baddie in the book was so easy to spot I was hopeful the author was tricking me, but no. And it could have gone faster, but maybe that's just because of the mode in which I was reading the story. ( )

(Fiction, Roaring Twenties Mystery #1)

Shades of Brat Farrar! In the 1920s Oliver Carr, an uncle to missing heiress Jessie, approaches vaudeville actress Leah Randall with a proposition: impersonate the missing woman, for whom she is a dead ringer, with the aid of his coaching, and split the fortune.

Well thought out and suspenseful.
