Amber and Brandy McMillan are thirty-year-old identical twins with opposite personalities. When their parents die in a house fire, Brandy blames their Uncle Russell. She thinks he wants to kill her too, so she - the undisciplined twin - disappears by using responsible Amber’s identity. Until one of the twins is found murdered in Amber’s under-construction home in quiet Blessington, Illinois. The contractor and his wife become prime suspects. They are also Max and Michelle’s good friends.
Amateur sleuths Max and Michelle risk their lives as they sift through scenarios in search of this clever killer. Before the mystery unravels, though, they are forced to manage quirky family and friends while also assessing the twins’ estranged Uncle Russell and their attractive realtor who recently arrived in town with his unusually seductive assistant.
