Storyline

Peter Milton and Lisa Cleasant are engaged and will soon be getting married. Peter is a brash stockbroker in the City and Lisa is timid and very superstitious. One day they meet Zoe, who is the spitting image of Lisa but very different in personality: she is confident, flirtatious and daring. Being superstitious, Lisa believes that if you meet someone who is your double, you will die within the month. While she is on holiday in Mexico with her equally superstitious mother, Peter and Zoe have a brief but torrid affair. When Lisa returns, she arranges to meet Peter at their "special place" in the woods. But when Zoe also turns up, it looks as if Lisa's superstition might actually happen. Written by Anonymous

Is the whole series this bad?
12 September 2017 | by raventhomSee all my reviews

I watched one RR show that was pretty decent about the Moors, however this one and the other ones we watched are terrible. The acting is wooden, no real inventive plots, I must say, that I am not tempted to read her novels Stick to Lynley for decent detective novels, I would not recommend these to anyone
