Waking up in a mental hospital without any knowledge of how
she got there and why, Josie is sure of only one thing, she
is not Michelle Andrews. However, no one believes her and
she has no way of proving her identity.
Dr. William Hayes is the only person in the hospital who
does believes Michelle is actually Josephine because sixteen
years ago he fell in love with her in Paris. After failing
to convince one of the doctors at the hospital that she
isn't Michelle, he puts his career and his freedom on the
line by kidnapping Josie and taking her to his brothers'
secluded house in the mountains. Once there, he helps wean
her off the drugs that have been steadily pumped into her
body and tries to come up with some way to prove she's
really the woman he knows her to be.
With the murders of two doctors that worked in the hospital
Josie was being kept at, the police are busy trying to
figure out if she's a cold-blooded murderer, an escaped
mental patient or a kidnap victim. Josie knows in order to
get her life back she's going to have to rely on Will, hide
from the police and most of all, outsmart her double, who's
determined to have her killed and take over her life.
DEADLY DOUBLE was an enjoyable read. There were a few
things I didn't quite understand, like exactly why Josie

broke off the relationship in the first place sixteen years
ago, thus breaking his heart. I found I didn't get fully
engrossed in the book, as I tend to do with some others, but
nonetheless still a good book. For everyone who's ever
wanted a twin, there is a good lesson to be learned. You
may get more than you ever bargained for.
Instead of lounging in the luxury of her Atlanta home,
Josie opens her eyes to find herself in a mental hospital
with no memory of how she got there. Why won't they let her
leave? Why do they think she's dangerous? And why does
everyone insist on calling her "Michelle"?
Only one man believes that the beautiful imprisoned patient
is Josephine Ferrell -- a doctor, William Hayes, who's
willing to risk his career and his safety to help her
escape. Spiriting the frightened young woman to a temporary
sanctuary, they join forces in a desperate hunt for
answers, keeping one step ahead of an intensive police
manhunt for a missing patient they believe is a cold-
