Synopsis provided by Goodreads
Imagine her shock when Violet Colby discovers she has an identical twin sister she never knew existed. Why her family was torn apart remains a secret no one can answer--yet. Hoping to develop a sisterly bond, Violet invites her sophisticated city twin to the Colby Ranch in tiny Grasslands, Texas. But when her sister's former fiancé arrives with questions of his own, country girl Violet finds herself drawn to handsome businessman Landon Derringer. And learns that true love requires faith--and a heart as big as Texas

First Thoughts
What first attracted me to this book was the multiples aspect. One because I’m fascinated by them! I could study the subject all-day! Plus since I’m an only child I tell myself I have a twin out there somewhere…haha. Second reason this story caught my eye was because it is based in Texas, where I’m born and raised: D but Imagine my surprise when I start reading the story and one sister lives in Ft. Worth, Texas. Where I was born!!!  How cool is that?

My Thoughts
This story is about two sets of twins that don’t know there’re twins. They basically live in separate worlds. But were so close to each other the entire time. Violet is the “Country girl” who was raised on a ranch with her mother and brother. After her mother is put into a coma from a serious horse riding accident she goes to search for her biologically father. Only to meet a guy that keeps calling her Maddie.  Whom she soon discovers is her twin sister and the mysterious guy is Landon Derringer, her twin’s ex-fiancé. Soon after that discovery, they found out weren’t the only twins separated from each other, and now their life it surrounded around discovering the mysteries that have yet to unfold.

I really liked this story. I loved watching Violet and Maddie’s relationship grow from random stranger that just happened to look like you, to friendship, to love, and accepted of being sisters. The Mystery also keep be intrigued the entire way through. From the very beginning I wanted to know what caused this family to split up, why was two sets of Identical twin separated. Plus not only was it a mystery it was also a romance, which I loved, because I love a good romance and this story delivered.
What I didn't like was how nothing was resolved at the end of the story.Overall this was a good story that I really adored!  It had mystery, romance; it was a fun and easy read. It was also Book 1 in the series so I look forward to the rest of the series. Where I guess all remaining questions will be answered.

    Thanks for the review.... :)

  2. This sounds so good! I'm adding this to my TBR list right now - Amazon has it cheap enough for the kindle, so I'll probably get it there. Thanks for the review!
