Sahara Taylor-Hughes has her business to run and when a gun-toting villain comes into her shop, her life is no longer her own. Because she looks very much like Logan’s dead wife, Micky, she will now become a part of a plan to retrieve vital information that could help the world. What she is not aware of is that Logan may be more trouble than she thought and her heart will become engaged with too many feelings of love for him.

Logan Wilde is into government espionage and doing some serious contemplating of quitting his job before another mission comes up. When he happens to meet Sahara, who he thought was someone else, while out for a walk, he knows that she is his chance at a peaceful life. He is angry with his ex-wife for becoming a double agent and he is trying hard not to take those feeling out on Sahara.

Dead Double is quite a story that takes you to some very exotic places, while still putting the main characters in danger. I am extremely proud of Sahara’s determination to see the mission through, even when she is given the information that can help or hurt the world as a whole. Her strength to go on, even after being injured on the hip, spoke volumes about her willingness to help. One thing was interesting for me is the true villain is never seen, but his flunkies were doing most of his dirty work.

Ms. Cooper-Posey had done it again by creating a wonderful story that could have ended very badly. What she did was give a lot of hope for a better future for most of the characters involved, and I was wondering about Sahara after completing her mission. I was not disappointed! There is one other surprise, and I won’t give it away here. I will say that you will want to rush to the end and it was hard for me not to.
