Pg. 69: Kate Pepper's "Here She Lies"

Today's feature at the Page 69 Test: Here She Lies by Kate Pepper.

About the book, from the author's website:
When she discovers e-mail evidence of her husband's infidelity, Annie Milliken is shattered. Dismissing his pleas of innocence, she takes their baby daughter and goes to the one person she has always trusted: her twin sister, Julie. Annie and her sister soon become as close as they were growing up, spending their days together, dressing the same, sharing the baby. But when Annie applies for a job, everything comes undone. Her credit cards are stolen just as she's arrested for grand larceny. The police realize she is the victim of identity theft, but she has yet to understand the true scale of the crime. For when Annie turns to Julie for help, she finds that her twin sister has disappeared ... along with her baby. Now, with her daughter -- and her own life -- on the line, Annie is going to fight for what is hers.
Among the advance praise for Here She Lies:

"Besides being a great thriller, Here She Lies gives readers an incredible look at the consequences of identity theft and how it impacts the victims. Annie’s love for her sterile twin is so strong and so deep that thinking bad thoughts about her sibling feels like a betrayal of the person she loves most next to her daughter. Bobby is a great character willing to be dominated by a stronger woman. Kate Pepper rolls up the tension in this cleverly written suspense laden urban crime thriller."
-–Harriet Klausner, Amazon’s #1 reviewer

"Pepper's newest whodunit…is a suspenseful, well-written yarn that will leave most readers guessing until the final twist."
--Publishers Weekly
