Pretty much everything I wanted from an enemies to lovers, forced proximity romantic comedy. And just what I needed after a run of bad books.

3.5 stars. Totally fun "brain candy" reading. It's a rom com, but a little more "open door" than I was expecting, so beware if you are sensitive to that. A perfect beach read or palette cleanser between heavier books.

So, I‘ve had this book on my table for a couple of mths. While my kindle was charging last night, I picked it up to read a little, not meaning to read more than a few pages. Hours later, I finished it. It was funny and creative. Liked the characters & the big family. Now at about 14.5 hours for #24b4monday don‘t think I‘ll hit 24 but maybe 20.

I am so sorry that I didn‘t have time for this one during October. Not only because I missed discussing it with the fabulous #NYRBBookClub, but also because it was a perfectly terrifying read. I‘m going to have to watch several comforting Christmas movies to shake this one off.

vivastory Ha! It was somehow more unsettling the second time I read it. Great review 👍 4d
Leftcoastzen Nice review ! I was late too ! Sang happy songs so I could go to sleep after finishing it.😳 4d
mklong @vivastory @Leftcoastzen Thanks! It‘s tough to leave a review because I didn‘t want to spoil anything. Happy songs are a great idea. Might use that one. 4d

LeahBergen Haha! Yes, it was a bit unsettling, wasn‘t it? And look at all your pretty NYRBs! 😍😍 4d
BarbaraBB What did you think of the ending? You should read @Billypar ‘s post about the book and the comments below. Really unsettling 😱😱 4d
mklong @BarbaraBB When I read the “I am Holland” part, I thought maybe I missed a twin switch, and like so many others was flipping back to see what I missed. I think I landed on insanity. The idea of the monster being within the “good” twin, is scarier to me. Such a great discussion about it though. Thanks for pointing me to it! 3d

After the disappointment of Royal Holiday, I‘m hoping this will be the romance novel I need this week! And yes, I‘m catching up on my posts tonight - sorry if it feels like your feed is full of me!

Kimberlone I don‘t read a lot in the Romance genre, but I really liked this one! 4d

I was swamped with guests and did not finish in time for #NYRBbookclub discussion,I just finished last night.Gothic & Atmospheric,I kept trying to figure out is it good twin /evil twin or something else all together?I also wanted the adults to pay attention to the children,maybe they wouldn‘t be so weird!

vivastory I actually raised my rating after rereading it. I thought it was a great Halloween read. I don't know if you saw my message, but I need to touch base with you about the Nov discussion. Are you on Goodreads? 4d
Leftcoastzen I am ! Same name . yes , we need to discuss. 4d
batsy Great point about the adults paying attention! I felt the same. Felt like shaking them a bit 😆 4d

Leftcoastzen @batsy Right?! If I was acting that weird my parents would have been on me like stink on a skunk!And I was a pretty free range child back in the day. 😁 4d
LeahBergen @Leftcoastzen @batsy But the adults were super weird themselves. 😆😆 4d
batsy @LeahBergen True! 😂 Tryon was showing just how rotten their environment is. A part of me just wants to feed the twins some cornflakes, make sure they have a hot bath, and send them to bed with some Hardy Boys books 😅 4d
