From what I could gather, The Doppelganger is about a young woman named Darcy who sees someone who looks like her and then events start to spiral out of control. The lookalike starts writing a blog that details events from Darcy’s life that she shouldn’t be able to know. People around her start dying and she can’t distinguish memories from reality.
It is very possible that this plot could have been interesting. However, it was not very well written. Characters are named without being introduced and the spelling is so horrific that you have to read quite a few sentences over to try to understand what the author is trying to convey. I thought for sure this book maybe hadn’t been edited yet since it was an eBook, but at the end she acknowledges her proof reader. The story takes place in Chicago, but all of a sudden in the middle, it takes place in London with no explanation and then back to Chicago like the author couldn’t remember which setting she had chosen. There were so many incomplete sentences, it was at times incoherent. Hopefully this author’s next book will be better and her proof reader will do a better job.
