Before she was Helen by Caroline B. Cooney

Like other readers I thought I was going to read a cozy mystery but ended up with something quite different. Clemmie turns out to another character to make another life for herself. She sails through her entire life with two different identities and everything is very smooth sailing till she unexpectedly gets caught in the activities of a neighbour who incidentally is also have double identities! The story unfolding through a series of unexpected scenarios, with murder being just a part of the story. You root for Clemmie, a hardened campaigner in this game!
