From Mara, a wardrobe malfunction about to happen:
I’d like to appeal to the collective knowledge of the Bitchery. I’m
looking for a book (a Harlequin, I believe) that I read in the mid-to-late
90’s or early 00’s.
It was about a pair of twins (identical, of course) separated in
toddlerhood by divorcing parents. The story follows the twin who ended up
with Mom, who later remarried, I think she grows up in Florida? In the
States for certain. She is a model whose career is destroyed when she is in
a car accident and has to relearn how to walk. She also loses her fiance
because of this (because he’s a jackass and leaves her not because he
She goes to England where her father and twin live and some strange man
accosts her on the street calling her by a name that’s not hers and
insisting that he knows her and why is she being so cruel to him? She is
understandably confused. And then somehow she discovers that her stepfather
isn’t her real father and that she has a long lost twin.
The twin has been engaged to the man who accosted the MC but was injured or
something when she fell down the stairs at the same moment that MC was in
the car accident. Twin broke off engagement and got “engaged” to original
fiance’s brother (cousin?). Fake fiance falls in love with MC who is in
love with him! Angst ensues.
For some strange reason I also remember some scene near the end where the
twins are dressed identically and the author describes their dresses as
being held up only by the pertness of their breasts or something. I remember
waiting for them to breathe injudiciously and have their tops fall down. And
fake fiance can tell the twins apart because they smell differently or
Anyone know what book I’m talking about?
You know what they say: you marry the one who can smell the twins apart, right? Right.
