I liked this story very much. I'm glad it turned out the way it did. I gave it 4 stars and I would recommend reading this book. ( )

East coast twins Amanda and Marian can't stand one another. Spoiled and petted by her father, Amanda's used to getting exactly what she wants. Marian's used to hiding her looks and blending into the background to minimize conflict. When their father dies and they're sent willy-nilly to reside with their aunt in the wilds of Texas, both girls are in for a shock - but only one of them will end up with a handsome cowboy.

The good twin's disguise is pretty transparent, and the bad twin's more spoiled rotten than truly bad. The plot's needlessly convoluted, and there's almost no suspense involved in reaching the happily ever after. Not up to par. ( )

This book looks at the lives of twin sisters-Amanda and Miriam. Both were treated very differently by thier father. Amanda was overindulged and grew into a spoiled, manipulative, and self-centered young woman. Mirium, on the other hand, was emotionally ignored and grew into a woman with a low opinion of herself, questioning the motive of others. Although she has many positive attributes-she is talented, adventurous, kind hearted, and seeks the good qualities of others; many can not get passed her hedious disguise that she wears in order to avoid attention, thus keeping her sister's jealousy at bay. Losing thier father forces the girls to move to Texas where thier new guardian, thier father's sister, who will select a favorable husband before they can control their inheritance. They mee a charming cowboy Chad, who is infatuated with Amanda and is constantly confused as to which sister he is dealing with. He prefers to deal with Mirium, but Amanda tests his limits and confidence. Mirium is in love with Cad, but Amanda has an ulterior motive-one that surprises everyone. This book has a great twist towards the end that forces Amanda to humble herself while Mirium musters the courage to get what she wants. ( )

I have read a lot of novels by Johanna Lindsey and this seemed like all the others. I think Ms. Lindsey is having a difficult time coming up with new and interesting plots. Her books have always relied on a series of misunderstandings, coincidences and even outright lies to keep the hero and heroine apart. The resolution of the tale is always the explaining of what really happened from both parties points of view, and then they love each other and get married, the end. Pretty much the same stuff here. Also features the "pretty girl who tries to look ugly/plain by wearing glasses and shapeless clothes and tying her (super-long) hair up really tight" cliche.
Also a non-challenging book to read on Caribbean vacation. ( )
