Book Review: The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand

The IdenticalsHappy Fourth of July!

I hope you all have enjoyed some time at the beach like me.  And, of course, I used it to catch up on some fun summer reads – including this 4⭐️ Novel!

Goodreads Summary: Nantucket is only two and a half hours away from Martha’s Vineyard by ferry. But the two islands might as well be worlds apart for a set of identical twin sisters who have been at odds for years. Just because twins look exactly the same doesn’t mean they’re anything alike–and Tabitha and Harper Frost have spent their whole lives trying to prove this point. When a family crisis forces them to band together–or at least appear to–the twins come to realize that the special bond that they share is more important than the resentments that have driven them apart.

My Review:

By now I know if I need a good summer read, Elin Hilderbrand is a sure bet. Her newest novel, The Identicals, is complete with the summer beach setting and family drama. The twin theme was a great conflict to base the novel around – and the characterization some how has the reader sympathize with both sides, almost begging for a reconciliation between the sisters. Hilderbrand mirrors the sisters’ differences and similarities with the differences between Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard to keep you turning each and every page. Family drama, love, revenge, deception, lies, and the beach – all the magical elements of a great beach read!
