Publisher's Summary

Identical twin sisters who couldn't look more alike...or live more differently.

Harper Frost is laid back, easygoing. She doesn't care what anyone thinks of her. She likes a beer and a shot and wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything fashionable. She's inherited her father's run-down house on Martha's Vineyard, but she can't hold down a job, and her latest romantic disaster has the entire island talking.

Two beautiful islands only 11 miles apart.

Tabitha Frost is dignified, refined. She prefers a fine wine and has inherited the impeccable taste of her mother, the iconic fashion designer Eleanor Roxie-Frost. She's also inherited her mother's questionable parenting skills - Tabitha's teenage daughter, Ainsley, is in full rebellion mode - and a flailing fashion boutique on Nantucket in desperate need of a cash infusion.

One unforgettable summer that will change their lives forever.

After more than a decade apart, Harper and Tabitha switch islands - and lives - to save what's left of their splintered family. But the twins quickly discover that the secrets, lies, and gossip they thought they'd outrun can travel between islands just as easily as they can. Will Harper and Tabitha be able to bury the hatchet and end their sibling rivalry once and for all? Before the last beach picnic of the season, there will be enough old resentments, new loves, and cases of mistaken identity to make this the most talked about summer that Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket have experienced in ages.

    Story
    "No longer a fan... and Huskies definitely do shed!"

    I think I have read or listened to every Elin Hilderbrand novel in existence, and use to be a big fan, but this one is SO awful that I only made it half way through, and just couldn't finish. The story is whiny and very immature , as if it were written by a new writer, and the characters are completely unlikable. At times, the book reminded me of a very long commercial, name dropping brands as often as possible. The little voice in my head kept screaming "who cares??"
    And last but not least, the dog... a Siberian Husky who doesn't shed. I assure you there is no such thing. For someone who seems to know so much about the Nantucket/ Martha's Vineyard part of the country, and way too much about all the pricey items she calls out by name, the author should definitely have done better research on the dog breed she chose for this story. Overall, and epic E.H. FAIL in my opinion. What happened to the author of Beautiful Day??

    "Modify"

    It would be more enjoyable listening if "he says, she says" were dropped. It gets a bit redundant and distracting.

    Story
    "I love this author"

    I loved the book and this author but I have to agree with some of the other comments. When listening to a book ,the "he said, she said" dialogue is monotonous. I've noticed it on every book I've listened to. I would think the author's editor would have fixed this problem by now. There are a lot of words in the English language to replace "said"! Still I never miss any of her books and they never disappoint. I love her description of food and , of course, Nantucket. It makes me want to live there!

    "Great Beach read."

    This was a fun read, lots of back and forth between the characters. I do wish Ms. Hildebrand hadn't made the grandmother seem so feeble. She's only 71 and that's not old these days!

    "Started low but then I loved it!"

    I would recommend this audio book. It started a little slow for me but once I got into it the characters developed and I couldn't wait to be back in my car listening!

    "Elin Hilderbrand Has Done it Again"

    I didn't think Elin Hilderbrand could get any better, but "The Identicals" was terrific. Maybe her best yet. I'm only sorry that I have read all of her books, so I will have to wait patiently for her next. This book is an absolute must!

    The reader's voice was not the best, but I enjoyed the story overall. She sounded almost electronic.
