Book Club: Twin Piques

I received a free copy of this book in return for my honest, unbiased review.  I received no compensation whatsoever in return for this review.

This week I'm sharing:

Here's the synopsis:

Forensic accountant Sloane Tobin and kooky pet psychic Willa may have the same face, but that’s the only thing these identical twins have in common.

How she can read the hearts and minds of animals has always been a mystery to Willa, and her rotten luck with men is equally baffling. Although she’s been looking for “The One” for what feels like forever (A teenage marriage to a French mime and dating a guy named Spider seemed like good ideas at the time!), optimistic Willa refuses to give up on love. When she meets Brody, the handsome rose expert hired to save her grandmother’s garden, she’s instantly smitten, but why does he keep sending her mixed signals? Does he return her feelings, or is their attraction all in her fanciful head?

Unlike her twin, Sloane has zero interest in romance. Her passion is her job, where she uses her gift for numbers to take down slimy embezzlers and asset-hiding spouses. When she’s assigned two high profile cases, Sloane feels confident the promotion she’s been angling for is within her grasp. But will her plan to climb the corporate ladder be thwarted by difficult clients, her co-worker-with-benefits, or – most surprisingly of all – her own sister? And how’s she supposed to stay focused on the drama at work when her childhood friend, Gav, moves in next door and the spark between them becomes impossible to ignore?

To get what they both want, can Willa and Sloane band together and rely on each other’s strengths? Or will their differences drive them apart once and for all?

Here are my thoughts:

Twin Piques is told from the alternating points of view of twin sisters Sloane and Willa.  They have polar personalities and I found that I enjoyed Sloane's character more while I related more with Willa (despite my inability to read my pets' minds).  Overall, the characters in this book are some of my favorite I've read in a long time.  They all are easily likable and memorable.

This book had some moments that were predictable, but most were not.  There was a big twist I didn't see coming, but was a pleasant surprise.  And about 3/4 of the way through the book, I started to guess that everything would all tie together, but I couldn't for the life of me figure out how.

I am very glad that I've been introduced to Tracie Banister as an author and look forward to more from her in the near future!

What are you currently reading??
