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. When a family crisis forces them to band together, or at least appear to, the twins slowly come to realize that the special bond that they share is more important than the sibling rivalry that's driven them apart for the better part of their lives.

Just not interested.

Elin Hilderbrand disappointed me with The Identicals.

I was disappointed in this book. I expected so much more from one of my favorite authors.

Extremely Unlikeable people making bad decisions; not at all what I expected. Very disappointed.

Identical twins are as different as night and day in their upbringing, their attitude, and lifestyle. The conflict between them has resulted in ten years separation despite living only 11 miles apart. What happens when their father dies brings about a clash between the two with mother and rebellious 16 year old granddaughter caught in the middle. Great summer read with the inevitable happy ending.

I was excited to see a new book coming out from one of my favorite authors. I wasn't so excited when I started reading it. It seems like Elin's writing has changed and not for the better. I hope her future books aren't written in the same tone as this one.

This is an "ok" book. I just don't think this author's books are as good as they used to be.

As a twin herself, Elin Hildebrand, has a great perspective on writing a story which involves the unique relationship between twins. Harper, and Tabitha however, are portrayed in a combative role.
Harper lives most of her life in Martha's Vineyard with her father after the divorce of their parents, while Tabitha lives in Nantucket with her mother.
The plot revolves around the disparity in personality traits between the twins and their relationships.
There are lots of twists and turns in the story. Will it be a happy ending for all? Reading the book is a great way to find the answer.

A cute summer read. About a set of twins who were split up when parents divorced. Death of their father puts a strain on everyone but has an interesting ending.

Twins trading places - remember the Parent Trap movies? A fun summer read.
