I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Copycat by Kimberla Lawson Roby
Copycat is the story of Simone Phillips who when she has a hair appointment at the same salon as nationally known Author Traci Calloway Cole does, both lives will never be the same. When Simone strikes up a conversation with Traci, it leads to them becoming fast friends until it crosses a line that sends one into a spiral of darkness that could cause her to lose everything.
From the moment Simone meets Traci she decides that she likes what Traci was wearing and what was that purse? Gucci. Oh boy.
Simone has a fiance who doesn’t understand why she will not commit to him like he is committed to her but she has a good reason, in her mind. Why would she want to attend Rev Black’s church but not his church? He starts to question everything about her, and the answers leave him with more questions.
Traci tells her family about her new friend, and immediately they are concerned because of what happened with the last friend. Will she heed the concern or will she ignore them because who doesn’t want a friend who is also a writer like she is? Win WIN!
Ms. Roby has written a compelling work that takes the reader into the twisted workings of the character’s mind and makes her strange and devious behavior understandable. I LOVED it, and I know you will also. This will make an excellent book club read. Buy this book!
