Kimberly and Marci are identical twins. Kimberly is the practical, kind-hearted, stay-in-with-a-good-book kind of girl while her sister, Marci, is the party type, the one with the tattoo and belly-button ring. Marci works as a waitress in a restaurant where she wears skimpy outfits and flirts with all the guys. Kimberly would never do that.
So "playing" the part of a fiancee to someone she's never met is a very far stretch for Kimberly.
Austin is a hard-working, workaholic, an architect by trade. He's not into the long term relationship thing...that's why he chose Marci to go with him to play his fiancee for his family. He figured he could announce their engagement to his family, then when they got home, he could take back the ring he bought her and give her the money. No strings attached.
What he doesn't expect is to fall in love with who he thinks is Marci in just one weekend.
What happens when they get back home? The lies have snow-balled over the weekend, and now, it just seems they're getting worse. Will Austin forgive Kimberly and Marci for lying to him, even though he lied to his own parents? You'll have to read this one to find out.
I love the style in which this author writes. She shows both character's angst over ill-perceived ideas/thoughts. Both are thinking the same thing, yet both are afraid to shout out their feelings to the other. The sexual tension was paramount and the sex scenes were just right.
If you get a chance, definitely read something from this author. So far I've read Husband Hunting 101 and Single And Searching. Two great books. This one is too.
They meet day one, most of which is taken up by the drive to Austin's home and then the evening is spent together but apart because of a party they are attending. Day two they have each gone their separate ways a good bit of the day because she is at the wedding shower of Austin's former gf. Day three they are getting married and he's telling her he loves her! He convinces her to marry him in a double wedding with his best friend because his family--who does not know she's his fake fiancee--would be sooooooooo disappointed if they didn't marry, according to Austin. GMAB. And for Austin to say that he "could never trust someone who lied" to him was downright insane considering all the lying he did to his family!
I won't deny the story is well written but the time lapse from start to marriage is ludicrous, as well as marrying to please your family instead of simply making an excuse.
The only thing I didn't like was how "abrubt" the ending was! I would have given this book 5 Stars if there would have been an Epilogue! The end of the book advertises a sequel to "Here Comes the Bride" called: "There Goes the Groom" (Marci's story) -- and contains a link to the author's website. Went the author's website & there isn't a single entry mentioning "There Goes the Groom"! Aargh! Frustrating! If an author advertises a sequel, the least they can do is have info on their website about it, even if it is to say that something happened and the sequel won't be published after all!
This book is about a pair of twins that sometimes switch places because they are identical. Their identical-ness is limited to their physical attributes and they consider themselves "mirror twins" because of this. It just so turns out that the author is a "mirror twin" herself!
Makes me wonder how many influences from this book are based off of true life?! :)
I enjoyed reading this novel. I had to do a double take at the year this novel was written because I didn't see anything about a cell phone! Lol I was thinking "why doesn't this character just text her sister?!" Duh! It was written/published in 1999!
It's a well written book but I felt like the plot was too obvious. I liked that at least this book wasn't "I hate him so much I love him" kind of story.
It's a fun read but I don't find myself pondering about what is going to happen to the characters... I know there is a sequel-sort of -- about through character's twin & I might buy that but it's not on my "I need to read this" list.
