The Girl From Her Mirror Book Review

The Girl from Her Mirror (Mirrors Don't Lie Book 1)

by Becki Willis

Helping a friend has never been so dangerous… 

When Makenna Reagan agrees to pose as her best friend for the week, she never dreams she could be putting her own life at stake. Injured in a car wreck, photojournalist Kenzie Reese can’t complete her assignment for Now Magazine and begs Makenna to take her place. After all, the women look so much alike people are always mistaking them for sisters. Aside from using a false identity to board the plane, the switch seems harmless enough, and Makenna reluctantly agrees to the scheme. 

At first, things seem to be going well; no one suspects she’s not who she claims to be, the New Hampshire White Mountains are enchanting, and she even meets a handsome man on the plane who just happens to be staying at her hotel. 

The first time a car runs her off the road, Makenna shrugs it off as a misguided case of road rage. The second time, she knows she has a problem. And the troubles keep coming; a man with a gun is following her, strangers are delivering cryptic messages, and she is almost kidnapped. Makenna suddenly finds herself in the middle of a mysterious past … and it’s not even hers. 

Out of her element and far from home, Makenna doesn't know who to trust - the handsome and charming Hardin Kaczmarek, or the odd couple from Texas who has befriended her? Trapped in her own web of deceit, Makenna knows trusting the wrong person could prove fatal.


Makenna Reagan and Kenzie Reese have been best friends since college. They look and act so much alike that everyone thinks they are sisters. When Kenzie has a car wreck and needs surgery, she talks Makenna into taking her place on a job assignment in New Hampshire.

Makenna meets Hardin on the plane and feels a mutual attraction. Once there, they make friends with Bob and Lesa Lewis who were also on the plane. By now, things have been getting strange around Makenna. It starts with her being chased and almost run off the road. She gets strange messages about her estranged father, and more. All this happens with everyone thinking she is Kenzie Reese.

Can she believe that Hardin is being truthful with her, and can she trust Bob and Lesa? More importantly, will she make it back home alive?

This story had many twists and turns, but was easy to keep up with. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Makenna. I don’t believe I could have taken someone else’s place without giving myself away. Especially with romance involved. I liked that Makenna and Hardin’s relationship was drawn out so long, and not just steamy sex scenes. I’m glad it ended the way I was hoping. I look forward to the next book in the series.
