I couldn't put it down...I like the way this author develops her characters with so much detail. This book is written in the format of back and forth to each women's story, in case you don't like that. It doesn't bother me at all, BUT I would get wrapped up in one particular character and just have to skip to all her chapters...not the way the author meant the reader to read it, of course. Didn't matter at all though because once they all began to merge I read straight through and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very entertaining story.

This book was ok, just too predictible for my taste. Three identical twin girls are separated at birth and they all go on to be incredibly famous/successful/rich in their chosen fields. Naturally! They meet up by accident and find out the truth behind their separation and vow to right the wrongs.

The author wrote of a lot hard rock bands from the 80's but she needed to do a bit more research. There were some errors in her references which really annoyed me on a personal level, but didn't really detract from the story. A LOT of product/designer name-dropping that made me wonder if the author got a kickback from the companies for multiple mentions. Overall, a great way to lose yourself in the fantasy of poor little girls growing up to be incredibly rich AND beautiful women. Not very original, I'll admit, but the writer still drew me in and made me want to find out what happened next. If you enjoy "trashy novels" (not necessarily a bad thing!)then this would be for you!

I loved this book! Of course it's unrealistic, it's fiction. I like to think of these kinds of books as "junk food for the mind" - juicy and delicious! This was the first Louise Bagshawe book that I have read. I like her writing style and can't wait to read more of her books.

Quick and witty. A great story that keeps getting better. Jumps from one sister to another every few chapters, it would always take me a minute to figure out which sister I was reading about. First I've read by this author and it has me looking for more.

This book has been sitting in my closet for years. It looked good but there was always another book that I wanted to read more. I finally had a break from my favorite authors and decided to give this one a chance. I wish I had picked it up sooner. It was well written and kept me wanting to read more. I liked the characters right away and the story was interesting. I thought more thought could have gone into the ending and not rush it in 50 pages.

I would like to tell you about the book, but I had no clue what it was about and I felt it captivated me more. I think if I knew about certain things I would have kept looking for it to happen and not enjoyed the story from the beginning. The book is about family and revenge.
