This was a dark, romantic thriller with an intriguing and original plot full of suspense as well as a fair amount of graphic violence, so be warned..... in the format of a whodunnit murder mystery it was fast paced throughout, and kept it's secrets hidden away right up until the final reveal at the end.......

Told from the male antagonist's point of view the narrative incorporated his reflections on events that occurred ten years previously as well as the current state of play...the characters were believable but at times I felt the interactions between them were slightly stilted and unrealistic particularly between the male characters who spent a lot of time threatening each other or conversely bromancing; this was a shame because in fact the group of guys have really interesting back stories and I can easily see how they can be incorporated into future instalments in the series..

The two main characters were great together and their sexual chemistry suitably steamy but they frustrated me for two reasons firstly because they were frequently vocal about their romantic feelings for each other and it didn't seem genuine.. and secondly they seemed to pick the most inappropriate moments to get down and dirty...I felt like saying ok I get it you love each other and the sex is great but now is not the time for this ...there is a serial killer to catch...

I thought this was an engrossing and somewhat unnerving thriller and although there were flaws in the characterisation I loved the group of investigators and friends that has been developed and I am looking forward to reading more about them in future books in this series....This book was reviewed for Summer's Eve Reads...

I have been given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Allie Redman is a new author on the block and I have to say I am seriously looking forward to what she has to offer.

Her book starts in the thick of it and I love it. The story starts fast and keeps up the pace. I did want the relationships to take more to make, with people with the hardships that they had gone through I did expect it to take just a bit more to break down the barriers. However, that being said, they made sense considering the situation and the fast pace of the story itself. A bit of grammar and layout tweaking needed but all in all I genuinely enjoyed how the book was written and how the story unfolded.

It has left me wanting to know how Shane and Macy’s story began and I look forward to book two coming out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spine Tingling Page Turner 21 Mar. 2017
By Ralph L mesa JR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Within pages of the first chapter, I was captured by Allie Redman's Double Take! I had to know what would happen next! The lead character, Dawson, (and later his team of colleagues and friends) was interesting and well developed. Most of all, he was driven to discover the truth behind the gruesome murders about which the book began. It was Dawson's sister, after all, where it began.
Several years later, a murder that's a serial to the first, pulls Dawson back into the investigation and to his home town. The killer stays just steps ahead of Dawson and his team at every turn and more people continue to die. After a stroke of genius, and a bit of luck, Dawson catches a break, and narrows his hunt. The ending came as a total surprise!
Most detective books I read, I can decipher the ending as well as twists along the way. This was not the case with Author, Allie Redman's Double Take. I was on the edge of my seat and even held my breath at times. Each revelation, was a surprise. She did a fantastic job with the storyline of this book!
On top of the masterful mystery, there is a bit of romance between a few characters and even some insta-love. Some romantic scenes, and some graphic details of those are also peppered throughout.
I'll mention situations that may be triggering: graphic portrayals of violence and sexual violence, murders with gore and description of blood at the scene, terrorizing messages and abuse, and torture.
I read an ARC copy of this book and found some errors and a few issues in timing and content. After contacting the author, I was advised there had been further editing and another copy of the book had been released. While I have not read that copy, I am hopeful it only makes this book better than it was.
I enjoyed this book--from finding myself holding my breath to reading faster and faster to catch a killer! Allie Redman was a new author for me but I am looking forward to reading more of her work!
3.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling Suspense 15 Mar. 2017
By Janine D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Double Take tells the tale of a small town being terrorized by a serial killer. As a rookie, Dawson Freeman walks into his first murder, only to discover his sister and her best friend were the victims. Unable to walk away from the case or the failure and guilt he feels, Dawson instead lets the cold case consume his life for the next ten years, cutting off those he cares about most.

Flash forward ten years when a middle of the night call brings Dawson back to the small town he left behind to chase a killer . . . It seems, however, that the serial killer has upped his game this round and has targeted those Dawson loves.

While back in his home town, Dawson begins to realize just how much he has been missing the past decade. Friends and family rally around him to beat the killer at his own game before he strikes again. Dawson also reconnects with an old high school crush . . . quickly realizing that there is more to life than he has been living.

If you are a fan of serial killer / thriller / suspense, this is a great story line that will keep you guessing until the very end of the book. Watching Dawson and his team track the killer is a great mind game. It was also enjoyable watching Dawson grow emotionally when he realizes there is more to life that his sister’s murder case. That being said, I feel the need to add that this book needs a good dose of editing. There are a lot of issues with incorrect word usage, tense and grammar. I found it distracting as it pulled me out of what is an interesting plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars #IMHOOKED 4 April 2017
By Jennifer Pierson: The Power of Three Readers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Dawson Freeman was happily leading a simple life as a police officer in his hometown when tragedy struck his family. It shook up his world when his sister is murdered in a very gruesome way. He becomes obsessed with catching the person who did it, but he's lived a life of solitude for 10 years when a call at 3 am changes it all up. He finds himself going home to find the psychotic killer who is baiting him by trying to destroy everyone he loves. HOLY HELL BATMAN! This book took me on the craziest ride of my life, and I didn't want to get off. I stayed on the edge of my seat, while my heart raced cover to cover. The diabolically brilliant Allie Redman held me hostage, and I felt like I was trying to chase down the killer myself. Twists and turns came out of every direction, and when I couldn't untangle them, I just dropped f-bombs loudly instead. In between all of the high octane intensity, fiery flames of sexy scene goodness gave me a breather while destroying my drawers. WHAT A GREAT START to what is shaping up to be an EXPLOSIVE series that I'm fully committed to as I'm completely hooked! HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
