An interesting story, but not without its flaws

MIRROR IMAGE is about Miss Avery Daniels, television reporter, who boards a flight which crashes soon after takeoff. As she awakens terribly injured in the hospital everyone adresses her as Mrs. Carole Rutledge. Apparently Ms. Daniels died in that planecrash an Mrs. Rutledge survived rescuing also her 3 year old daughter. Unfortunately her body took severe damage and her face is almost unrecognizable. Her vocal cords are damaged as are her hands and fingers. So she has no means to tell the husband of Carole Rutledge, Tate, that she isn't Carole and the face surgery which shall restore her beauty comes ever closer. One evening there is a person in her room, telling her that she shall not confess on her deadbed and that the plan to kill Tate was still on. Because her face is so bandaged she cant see who spoke. So she decides to go along and play Carole till she can be sure of the identity of the person who wants to kill Tate.
I enjoyed reading MIRROR IMAGE because the story is basically sound and reliable. Carole, Avery and Tate's charakters are painted clearly and honest even if its not to their best. There is a constant thrill that makes you turn the page again and again and hope that everything will turn out ok in the end. The identity of the attacker is conceiled till the end and defies your wildest guessings.
Now, at the end of the book, I realise I'm at a loss as to Tates exact looks though. I dont know his hair colour or the colour of his eyes. Its the same with all the charakters. Their traits and behavings I remember, but nothing about how they look like. I think its a pity that the author hasnt painted these things clearer so you can identify with them. I like a good female heroine but Avery has so much success with basically everything shes doing that afterwards your asking yourself why there are doctors to heal illnesses when you can have Avery? Shes knitting the marage of her brother-in law, shes bringing her niece back onto the right path, she cures her sister-in law of her alcoholism... That took some credibility off the book.
