    The Switch by Sandra Brown is a 2013 Grand Central Publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This book was originally published back in 2000 but was reissued by Grand Central a few years ago. I have read many of Sandra Brown’s romantic suspense novels, but this one slipped by me somehow. The temptation identical twins have to switch places with one another usually loses its ...

    I wasn't sure if this was going to work for me. For about 90% of the book there was this one aspect of the book that was just getting to me and I knew I wouldn't be able to get past it.But I persevered and I must say this lady can spin a yarn. For the last 10% I was totally engrossed in the story.As with most books by Sandra Brown, you are better off not knowing too much about them, except maybe the premise. It isn't the first time that identical...

    Yes, 5 stars for me! I can never go wrong with SB. This book had me hooked from the start. I binge read it til 2am. It was near the last chapter when I sorta figured it out. I was right on my who but not my what.....makes no sense to others I know :) I would recommend this book to all SB fans who have not read it yet and any other fans of romantic/suspense. The plot was awesome!

    I'm never disappointed when I read a Sandra Brown's book. She has become synonymous with a one-click for me. The Switch was an addictive story with enough suspense and romance to make me want to stop doing anything else but read, The Setting:A pair of twins, Melina and Gillian Lloyd are having lunch together. During it, Gillian informs Melina that she has gone through an artificial insemination that morning. Melina is happy for her sister and she...

    I'm going to be really honest here: my reading time is pretty much limited to how long I can be in the bathroom by myself. Since that is (usually) an extremely small portion of my day, I try to be very selective in my reading choices. I'd rather spend my precious reading time on something I really enjoy."The Switch" was not bathroom worthy.My summary can best be summed up by this discussion:Husband: "What's that book about?"Me: "It's about an ast...

    2.5 stars rounded down.There's an underlying premise that the astronaut called Chief (the H of the story) slept with one sister and then spends the rest of the story lusting after the other twin. This had an ick factor for me even while I tried to wait for the ick to go away. Took way too long to get there. And even though you know SB will show how it's OK, I didn't buy that either. I simply don't buy that they didn't stay at the house after the ...

    O livro anterior que li da autora foi um pouco decepcionante mas este compensou em tudo. Muito bem estruturado e uma narrativa inteligente. Adorei de início ao fim.

    WOW! É uma palavra (sigla? expressão?) que define na perfeição este livro. Nunca tinha lido nada da autora mas comecei extremamente bem! É daquele livros de dar a volta ao cérebro. Desde a primeira página até à última o enredo tem o dom de prender o leitor. A acção é constante, é activa e tem dinâmica. As personagens estão muito bem construídas e dão um certo mistério a toda a história, que só é descoberto no final. E até a...

    An unbelievable premise can sometimes turn into an entertaining book. Mirror Image (1990) and Play Dirty (2007) are two of Sandra Brown’s books I can recall. Unfortunately, the protagonists in The Switch don’t have characteristics that I find attractive. The romance and storyline seem contrived despite the ambitious plot point like a villain with a delusional god complex and nefarious enterprise. Not my favorite.

    I am so addicted to Sandra Brown's Romance Thrillers!!!!!! What an author she is, keeps ya guessing till the end and this book had a very big surprise ending!!Sisters, twins, identical in every way, Melina push's her twin Gillian to take her place in entertaining a celeb, for this is her business. The celeb is an astronaut Col. "Chief" Hart, but she turns her down, but changes her mind the last minute. The following day, Melina receives terrible ...

    Já acabei então o Vidas Trocadas e posso afirmar que foi outra leitura fantástica. Estou completamente rendida às intrigas e mistérios que a autora cria. E à sua escrita também. Tem um estilo que me agrada muito. Sobre o livro, tenho alguma coisas a dizer. A primeira é que eu descobri a revelação, aquele pormenor que é revelado a umas escassas páginas do fim. Sempre estive muito reticente em acreditar nas palavras dela e eu cá tinha ...

    Esta é a minha estreia com a autora e foi uma bela estreia! Este é um policial menos sangrento que alguns mas não deixa de cativar o leitor fazendo-o perder umas belas horas de sono!Sandra Brown tem aquele toque de ligar o romance ao policial que ela bem sabe e por isso torna o enredo deveras apelativo.Nesta obra temos duas irmãs gémeas: Melina e Gillian e estas são quase indistinguíveis. Depois de uma ser brutalmente assassinada, a outra ...

    One of the few SB which didn't work for me. There is no objective reason for not liking it, true, the plotting was smart, the dialogue as great as it can be, the mystery was tick and with a multi-layered approach, still, I couldn't cope with the characters. Or the (stupid) premise. (view spoiler)[I cannot get behind the idea of a two thirty something old twins switching places in social situations just because they can. (hide spoiler)] But that's...

    A classificação correcta seria um 3,5*. Principalmente se comparar com o "Uma Voz na Noite".Gostei da estória, mas tive pena de ter adivinhado o desfecho logo a meio do livro, o que tirou o "encanto". Além de que só a meio do livro este se tornou de leitura compulsiva, para descobrir se as minhas suposições estariam correctas.No entanto não deixa de ser um bom policial, com o toque certo de romance-Uma autora a seguir.

    Sandra Brown não desilude! Muito bom mas cansativo, já estava doida com estas gêmeas e sempre atenta a perceber as trocas que fizeram ou não fizeram... vi logo como ia ser possível saber quem era quem mas claro só no final é que se desvendou

    I quite enjoyed this book, but with some caveats. First off, the pacing was awesome - it was PAINFUL to go to bed with the book unfinished. I sat in the bathroom on the floor for almost an hour, reading, convincing myself that it wouldn't hurt to read for "just" five more minutes. I finally made myself go to bed.However, when I got to the end of the book and realized what Sandra Brown had done, I started to think back on the book, and I wasn't so...

    This is another book that I've had forever but put it back every time I started to read it. I think the plot of this story was very good but the romance portion was very disturbing to me even after the plot twist that should've saved it. I really can't say more without giving spoilers but if the book had been without the romance it probably would've been a four star read. Brown is a fantastic writer and I loved the plot though the number of plot ...

    (...)Embora este livro tenha os mesmos ingredientes que todos os livros da autora, nota-se uma importância muito diminuta relativamente à parte romântica neste livro, sendo que esta, pelo menos para mim, foi deveras estranha. O Chefe, um homem determinado e que acaba por criar uma paixão mal conhece Gillian, fica em choque com a descoberta da morte desta, mas fica ainda mais em choque ao descobrir que Gillian tinha uma gémea igualzinha a est...

    I received “The Switch” by Sandra Brown as a Good Reads First Read. Thank You!I really enjoyed this book. One of my friends told me she is not a fan of Sandra Brown because she doesn’t enjoy the level of details Sandra uses when writing. My friend prefers it when an author just gets to the point and lets the reader use his or her own creativity to fill in the details and create an image themselves. I would have to say I disagree. Many of th...

    3 1/2 stars.Gillian and Melina are identical twins.They switched identities regularly as children, but now approaching 40, they decide to do it one more time - with tragic results.But Melina feels deep inside her that there is more to Gillian's murder than the sheriff, who has quickly wrapped up the case, realises - and she continues to investigate.This is a good story line with two twists at the end (one I saw coming and one I didn't).I became q...

    Sandra Brown was very close to a 5 star rating this time! Man, she really kept me guessing on this one. Usually I get a hint of what the end result might be on a novel but not with Sandra Brown. Dang it!! I really thought that I knew who the bad guy was. Hell, I really thought that I knew what was going on. I was totally wrong.As usual, Brown really delivers on the character development within the story, she delivers on the premise (how in the wo...
