Publisher's Summary

A "fresh, funny, and satisfying" (New York Times best-selling author Jennifer Weiner) story about the complicated bonds of sisterhood. 

Twenty-nine-year-old Lindsey Rose has, for as long as she can remember, lived in the shadow of her ravishingly beautiful fraternal twin sister, Alex. Determined to get noticed, Lindsey is finally on the cusp of being named VP creative director of an elite New York advertising agency, after years of 80-plus-hour weeks, migraines, and profound loneliness. But during the course of one devastating night, Lindsey’s carefully constructed life implodes. Humiliated, she flees the glitter of Manhattan and retreats to the time warp of her parents’ Maryland home. As her sister plans her lavish wedding to her Prince Charming, Lindsey struggles to maintain her identity as the smart, responsible twin while she furtively tries to piece her career back together. But things get more complicated when a long-held family secret is unleashed that forces both sisters to reconsider who they are and who they are meant to be.

Terrible Narration

Darnit! I tried ignoring the stilted narration but it completely ruined the whole story for me. I couldn't handle it. Finally I just turned it off. Wasted my money. I liked "The Wife Between Us" so much. They should redo this one using someone else. Maybe I will read if I ever get time. I have a long drive to work and listen every day. I can only comment on the performance as I never made it past Ch 1.

Enjoyed this book.

The narrator sounded kind of pissed off the entire book which did not add to the audible experience. The story itself though was insightful, interesting and unexpected enough to make it hard to ‘put down’. I’ll look for more by this author.

not nearly as good as expected

Jennifer Weiner praises the book on the cover but this book is not remotely in her league. The author writes decently well, but the characters are fairly shallow, entitled and not very self aware... it gets better as it goes on...
