My name is Isabel Butterworth. Your name is Isabel Butterworth.

We’re around the same age. We live in the same town.

But your life is more exciting than mine, isn’t it? Richer, dramatic, more fulfilling.

Imagine if I’d never found out about you…

But I have. Because someone mistook me for you.

And now I can’t stop thinking about you because I know you’re in trouble. You need my help.

And I need a way to get to know you.

To save you.

To be you

Two women, with the same name–Isabella Butterworth. One is leading a sort of fancy life even though her marriage is failing. The other not much of a fancy life. Then one of them gets mistakenly attacked by a man and then the other one is determined to find out more about the other person.

This was a gripping psychological thriller. It was truly engaging and fast paced and towards the fifty percent of the book, it got more and more intriguing and interesting with the twists and turns along the way. I like the fact that the author gave the reader an unexpected twist which also made the reader wanting to know what is going to happen next. But unfortunately, the book which I was going to give five stars dropped down to four stars as I didn’t really like the ending. However, the twists and turns in each of the chapter made me hook into the story and I actually enjoyed reading the book. I have read books written by this author before and this book was a complete surprise.

So if you like a gripping twisty and unputdownable thriller then this book is one for you–worth four stars.

Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
