Hello everyone!! Today I have another guest that I am so glad is returning! This author had an excellent series that I loved so much, and with this new book I was so excited to help her share it! So let me show you some goodies!! 🙂
Synopsis for All Of Us Were Sophie
What if the only way you could save your own life was to kill yourself?
Someone is trying to kill Sophie Rippetoe, and she has no place to hide. But Sophie has a unique option. Her husband designed and built a duplicator machine to make exact copies of complicated and sophisticated machine parts. She knows how the duplicator works.
Will it work for people? No one knows.
There’s just one problem: the duplication process destroys the original. The only thing Sophie knows for sure is that trying to make copies of herself will end up killing her.
Sophie isn’t sure who’s trying to kill her or why – but she has her suspicions and has gathered some evidence. Before she takes the leap of faith to use the duplicator on herself, she creates a trail of clues, hopeful that at least one of the Sophies she creates will figure it out in time to save herself.
Ok, so if I could clone myself, I am pretty sure I wouldn’t, LAWD there’s enough with only ONE of me hahahaha LOL BUT this concept and the way it was written is totally cool! Because, in order to save herself, or well one of her self, Sophie must create clones of herself to save at least one, because some one is trying to kill her. Each clone, a piece of Sophie included, will have to work to find out who is trying to kill her, why, and how to stop them from being successful. And her husband was the original person to create the duplicator, and needless to say, they both kept secrets from each other, which only adds to the mystery.
Jeromy’s wife died and he wants to raise his daughters in a safe place. And somehow, he’s landed in the middle of the crazy that is Sophie and her mystery. All he wanted was normalcy and he definitely didn’t bargain for this. He’s the one called to the scene when a woman-Sophie- tells the police someone keeps trying to kill her. And she also can’t recall the last two weeks of her life, so she isn’t really helping. And the duplicates of Sophie now have different names and lightly differences in personality, and they are following all evidence that the original Sophie left for them.
The writing is so imaginative, and this story line will grab you from the start. The first sentence will hook you. It’s a fantasy concept with a mystery plot line, and there’s so much to the story and the plot twists were excellent. And there’s some secondary characters that play to the suspense and suspect list of killers that made the story so much more unique. And not only that, but it’s fast paced, it has to be, because Sophie not only has to keep the killer from killing her, but to keep these other characters from becoming a victim in the cross hairs. I am quite intrigued. LOL
This is definitely going to appeal to those mystery lovers, but the concept of cloning yourself, and then using the clones to solve your future murder plot was so new and fresh. I’ve loved this author’s writing style, and though it’s different from her other series, the feel of her flow just gets you caught up in the world that she’s created. A very imaginative, very entertaining, well written story! 5 PAWS!
Theme Song for All Of Us Were Sophie By Resa Nelson
My newest novel is All Of Us Were Sophie, a murder mystery with the science fiction idea that in today’s world it’s possible to make exact copies of yourself in an instant. Those copies would be human beings who are exactly like you with your personality and life experience intact.
The story begins with Sophie knowing that someone is trying to murder her, and the killer is closing in fast. She uses a machine her husband recently invented to make copies of herself, hoping at least one of them will escape whoever is trying to kill her.
There’s one problem. The act of duplication destroys the original. Sophie knows the only way to save her own life is to allow the duplicating machine to kill her.
For that reason, the theme song I’ve chosen is “You Only Live Twice” from the James Bond movie by the same name. I think it captures Sophie’s dilemma as well as the danger and adventure in All Of Us Were Sophie.
