Shadow Woman by Linda Howard

Shadow WomanShadow Woman by Linda Howard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Description: Lizette Henry wakes up one morning and doesn't recognise the reflection staring back at her in the mirror. She isn't suffering from amnesia; she remembers who she is, what she did the day before, her parents, where she grew up - everything. But who she is, is not who she sees. Alarmed, she begins searching her house for something - anything - that will match what she remembers. There is nothing. And yet there is nothing in her life that seems abnormal, except herself. She could be crazy, but her instincts are telling her this isn't the case. Some women might make an appointment with a psychiatrist, but Zette isn't 'some women.' Deep inside she knows she isn't the face in the mirror, and that she has to find out the truth, before it's too late.

My thoughts: I enjoyed the plot line. A boring and predictable woman wakes up one morning and realizes her face is wrong. Pieces of her life unravel as she remembers that she doesn't remember things. Then she remembers that she sort of remembers other things that didn't happen. Or did it?

Excellent thriller with car chases, spy equipment, guns and a hot romance. Actually, the hot romance was disturbingly descriptive and a little out of place for what I thought was a mystery/spy/thriller. It was somewhat distracting from the story.

Besides that point, it's a good read.
