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...
Nicely written, interesting, fun.
The Coxwell Series
These books, all of them, have decent storylines but they are too wordy. I found myself skipping LOTS of pages just to keep reading the story. If the author was not so wordy the books wouldn't be half bad but I found myself not caring about the end because the books were too wordy. Phillipa's book is horrible...wordy and bad storyline. If you read that book just skip to the last 30 pages.
I absolutely loved this book. First, the author's style is perfect in so many ways --- clever, funny, sidebar info, moving, well-developed characters -- from the very young children to the aging parent, to mention a few. So many emotions were evoked. I can't wait to read more of Deborah Cooke's stories.
