If I had to describe The Identicals, the newest release by the Queen of Summer Novels, Elin Hilderbrand, I would have to say drama.
Drama, drama, drama.
Estranged sisters, wild teenaged daughters, love affair, family betrayal, loss and good ol’ fashion gossip surrounds the core of this plot making it a delicious summer, beach read!
When Billy dies in Martha’s Vineyard, his daughter Harper is forced to call up Tabitha and Eleanor. Her identical twin sister and mother, whom she hasn’t spoken to in years. Making the trip from Nantucket, Tabitha arrives with her rebellious daughter, Ainsley in tow. A bit of mistaken identity and mishaps ensue as the girl’s struggle with old demons and to help tie up their father’s estate. A story of lost loves, once buried battles and the importance of family, Tabitha and Harper come to realize their bond is more important than the resentments that tore them apart.
