Imposter for Hire by Sandra Levy Ceren

Available on Amazon

Because this is book three in the Dr. Cory Cohen mystery series, I feel I missed the beginning of a great but awkward relationship with Ben Fortuna. Besides that, this book does a good job of standing on its own. The story is fresh and doesn’t involve a lot of flashbacks causing the reader to get lost if they haven’t picked up the previous two novels.

Imposter for Hire: A Dr. Cory Cohen Mystery
Psychologist Dr. Corey Cohen teamed up with private investigator (and love interest) Ben Fortuna. This secret case has them helping a young mother who suffers from anorexia and her missing Iranian husband. The book has many twists and turns as the due work through kidnapping, murder, disasters, and greed to save Allison, her husband, and their children.
While there wasn’t much about this novel that pertained to my own life other than battling an eating disorder, I found the author fascinating. I found her fascinating because she is a mirror image of the main character. Sandra Ceren is a clinical psychologist, just like Cory. As I read the novel, I wondered if Dr. Ceren was living out her adventures through Cory. I always think of this about the author when there is a book or a character I really like.
The book was an easy, quick read. I felt she did a wonderful job of building the characters and giving the reader enough information to form a bond. Often, series writers get too bogged down with facts from previous novels in the series, which takes away from the overall content of the current novel. Ceren did a brilliant job of giving you peeks without taking away from the action.
I found Imposter for Hire to be a real page turned and I really enjoyed the quirkiness of Dr. Cory Cohen. I love mysteries where you spend time sorting it all out in your head, only to find out you were wrong! In my eyes, a great mystery will always prove me wrong because if I can figure it out, then it’s just too cliche and predictable. I can’t wait to read more because I am dying to know what becomes of her and Ben!
