Two young women who look exactly alike change places each after what the other posseses. This was a good "beach" read and I enjoyed it. I am a fan of Jude Deveraux, but I honestly felt that this was not her greatest but certainly not her worst.

A very light read, a book to take along when you're sitting in the doctor's office, etc. Not one of Jude Deveraux's best. But it does have it's moments and some funny [?] circumstances.

I was very disappointed in this book. Others by her were great; it was a cute idea, but very boring to read.

The storyline in this book was really strange, but I can't say it wasn't unique. I liked it ok, but not as well as others by Deveraux.

Typically Jude Deveraux. A great summer read. Two cousins switch lives, find true love and almost get themselves and everyone else killed in the process. A spoiled Southern belle and a New York working girl fall out of the same family tree, and head into adventure.

This really is a nice read, although not one of Jude Deveraux's best. The ending seems hurried and a little weird. I am still glad I read it, though, because I thought other parts of it were great.

Deveraux's books are just... unexpected. You read the synopsis and expect a cute light read, but they are not like that at all! I love it. There is unexpected mystery, murder, mayhem... Stories you'll remember for a long time!

The lifelong pen apls, who look exactly alike, meet for the first time in their twenties and embark on a daring adventure of changing identities. Southern belle Ariel is determined to win the heart of a man who doesn't know she exists, while Sara yearns to leave behind her hardscrabble existence and taste the goof life that fate has denied her.

This was a very light read which had both intrigue, humor and a touch of romance wrapped up inside it. The story was very enjoyable. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a Jude Deveraux fan. She does not disappoint us with this novel. Enjoy!

I normally don't "review" a book, I just make sure there's a synopsis. But this was my first Deveraux book---and my last. What a waste of $8.00. Immature plot, poorly developed characters, juvenile writing...how do these people get to be best selling writers? Must have a HUGE family. Please, someone---get this off my bookshelf!
