a book in review!

Title:  Twin Piques 
Author:  Tracie Banister
Genre:  Chick Lit
Book blurb: 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?

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. First I have to say that I loved this book! The author's writing style is so descriptive, you can really develop each part of every scene in your head. The way she writes makes you want to keep turning the pages. This story has everything you could ever want in a chick lit novel, love, comedy, drama, and it's all mixed together for a perfect weekend read. I can't wait to read more from Tracie, I really love her storytelling style. I recommend this 5 star book to anyone who loves really, really great chick lit. Pick Twin Piques up, I promise you won't be disappointed, xo!
