Twin sisters. One scorching summer.

A bucketful of secrets.

Diana’s life is perfect. Her twin sister, Josie’s – not so much.

Diana has a rich and successful husband, two talented youngsters and an adorable dog. She always looks as if she’s stepped from the cover of a magazine. Her immaculate second home by the sea, for idyllic summers with her perfect family, was actually featured in one.

Josie has a messy, compact flat, dates, but not relationships, and she can’t even keep a houseplant alive. She moves from job to job, goes clubbing with her friends and often looks as if she’s fallen through a hedge.

Although Josie loves Diana deeply, each year she declines the invitation to spend the summer with her sister. Or any other family holiday. Because Josie has a secret.

But is Diana’s life so perfect? Or is she also hiding something? When secrets are revealed this summer, everything will change. Josie could finally have the life she’s always wanted … if she’s brave enough to take a chance.

My Review

Based on what I thought of Emily Harvale’s books I had previously read, I knew there was a higher possibility for me to enjoy this book. With that in mind I decided to join the blog tour. Was I right? Of course! I had fun with this book. From the characters to the various warming and exciting moments that happened.

In this book we follow Diana and Josie. If you read the blurb before reading this review, you know that they are sisters, actually… twins. As someone that has family members that are not- identical twin (my dad and his twin sister), this was something that immediately got me to feel as if I knew this story.

The idea of twins, identical or not, is quite fascinating and I have always found it intriguing. Diana and Josie… Two opposites. Two different lives. And so many secrets.

I loved the family relationships, the uncovering of the mysteries in the family, seeing the love grow between on another, as well as the twin bond. I always love a book that follows a family because it makes me feel as if I am a part of the family, or at least, part of the community.

It was a fantastic setting, something I was always loved about Emily Harvale’s books is the brilliant settings, the feel of the small town and the community, that she writes in her stories. It makes us want to vacation there, and get to see everything with our own eyes, not just our mind.

Overall, I loved it and I hope that we can get to see more stories in this setting. I now don’t want to just spend the summer at the sister’s house, I want to go there for Christmas, Easter, maybe a crazy birthday. It doesn’t even have to be at this sister’s, it can be at any other character’s house. Anyway, I can’t wait to see what Emily Harvale comes up with next.
