Two sisters. One disaster.
First things first: I'm the bad twin. While my sister, Marcia, has the perfect family in the perfect suburb, I've been making my living as an Internet advice columnist and designing Web sites in my downtown loft. I always thought I had the right answer—and hair color—for any occasion. That is, until Marcia ran up loads of debt and ran out on her husband and kids, and I was left helping to pick up the pieces. Her husband, James, is a lawyer who I hate on principle alone.
But for a guy who's just lost his job, his marriage, and his expensive toys, he's keeping it together—and making me rethink my feelings toward him. It's not that he's traded in his conservative suits for sexy jeans. It's that he's not giving up what's important to him, and oh baby, I'm a sucker for a guy who hangs tough.
That doesn't mean I'm ready to step into Marcia's designer shoes now that she's gone A.W.O.L.
And it doesn't mean that I'm going to fall for James' easy charm…not again, anyhow. Besides, I've had a lifelong policy of not being mistaken for my twin and I'm not backing down on that one now—no matter how convenient it might be for a certain sexy (and persuasive) man...
I enjoyed the storyline, but did find the writing to be wordy and there were parts I skimmed through.
I loved reading this story. The idea of twin sisters finding the same man even though one of them was after what the first one had is very instructive.
I don’t give 5 stars very often, but this was an exceptional book, definitely my kind of story. I did not want to put it down. Not only that, it was satisfyingly long, and very well imagined. I can’t believe I have never read this author before, and I will certainly be reading more.
