OH!!! EM!!! GEE!!!!! Wowwy...wow...wow!!! This book had me sitting on pins and needles from beginning to end!! I could not put it down and when I had to.... it was all I thought about! I couldn't wait to pick it back up and see where Tyler was going or what he was going to do next. I have never yelled at my iPad, held my breath, or needed anxiety medication as much as when I was reading The Mistaken! Nancy S. Thompson knows exactly what she is doing and this story sucked me in and made me worship the book queen that is Nancy!!
The Mistaken is about two brothers.... One is a Dudley- Do- Right, the other is a bad boy who gets involved in the Russian mafia! Tyler and his brother Nick, are about as opposite as opposites can be! Tyler is a straight laced, law abiding, goal oriented, boy next door... With amazing blue eyes and a super sexy accent. Nick is a gun wielding, hard living, full of angst and guilt ridden bad boy who has had to live his life in his brother's shadow. How could you not want to instantly root for each of them???
Tyler is living the American dream. He has a great job, just married the love of his life (Jillian), came home from his honeymoon and found out he is going to be a first time Daddy. He is on cloud 9 and doesn't know how his life could possibly be any better. That is until a spa worker steals his wife's identity and puts a damper on them buying their dream home to raise their family in. Tyler's wife isn't satisfied with his decision on how to handle the person who she views as ruining her life. Now enter the spa worker who stole Jillian's identity.... Trashy, manipulating, low down Erin Anderson! Jillian decides to take matters into her own hands and who better to assist her with putting a little fear into Erin than.... Nick the Russian mafia bad boy.. AND Tyler's brother!!! When Tyler finds out about Jillian and Nick's plan... He flips out and that is putting it lightly! Tyler forbids Nick from helping and Jillian is left to handle the situation on her own. She decides to try to scare Erin into admitting her guilt, but ends up getting into a car accident and getting killed while pregnant with Tyler's baby. Tyler is full of guilt, grief, rage, and now some very unhealthy habits and decides that he is going to kidnap Erin and trade her to the Russian Mafia for his brother's freedom. Of course Tyler, being the all around golden boy, really has no clue how to do this and just lets his distraught emotions consume him. He stalks Erin at the spa, sees her arguing with her "husband", follows her home, and waits. Little does Tyler know that Erin is having an affair with a married man, and this man's wife is a doppleganger for Erin! The woman Tyler follows home and kidnaps is not Erin, but Hannah, a totally innocent bystander who was just trying to bust her no good, cheating husband! This is where The Mistaken takes a drastic turn, kept me up for un-Godly hours, made me want to pull Tyler's and my own hair out, and suckered me in to the characters and their story!!!
The Mistaken takes a horrendous chain of events and weaves in love, heartache, friendship, grief, humor, happiness, and pure rage all into one nice package and delivers an outstanding story!!! I was about 10% into the story when I was already crying, laughing, and irritated with the men in this book! Nancy S. Thompson took me on a ride that I would do over and over again!! Before reading The Mistaken, I was not a sold out fan on the mystery/suspense/romance genre. I really didn't understand how those three genres could be intertwined into one story line. I now worship the throne of the queen of mystery/suspense/romance and that person is Nancy S. Thompson!! I give The Mistaken a very well deserved 5 stars and encourage everyone to read it ASAP!!! Trust me... You will find it all in this story and you too will get the chance to yell obscenities at your iPad/Kindle/book, whatever device you read on, and experience the utter frustration that is Tyler!! ;)
