Faith Aldridge wants answers. Bramble, Texas is the only place she can find them . . . as well as Hope, the identical twin sister she never knew she had. But the townsfolk reckon that shy city-girl Faith is really her long-lost sister Hope, back in Bramble at last. And they're fixin' to do whatever it takes to heat things up between her and Hope's long-time flame, Slate Calhoun. If that means rustling her car, spreading rumors like wildfire, and reining in some explosive secrets, well, there's no way like the Lone Star way...

But Slate's no fool. The woman in his truck may look like Hope, yet the way she feels in his arms is altogether new. He's determined to keep this twin in his bed and out of his heart. Trouble is, the real Hope is headed home, and she's got her own designs on Slate. If Faith wants to avoid heartbreak, she'll have to show a certain ruggedly handsome cowboy that this crazy-impossible love is worth fighting for.

Upon the death of her mother, Faith finds out that she has a twin sister. She heads out to Bramble in search of her long lost sister, Hope. Everyone in Bramble mistakes her for Hope except for Slate.

From the start I was totally engrossed in the story. I really liked Faith and Slate as individuals. Both were very likable in their own right. The people of Bramble were a laugh a minute and so set in their ways of believing what they wanted to believe. Also Faith’s interactions with the animals she came into contact with were a total riot. The vast majority of Slate and Faith’s relationship was spent laughing at whatever situation they were in.

I however did not care for Faith’s biological family. I didn’t buy her parents reasoning for giving up Faith for adoption and keeping Hope. Faith’s acceptance of them seemed a little too sudden and her additional siblings didn’t seem at all welcoming to her. Hope came across as being spoiled and very selfish.

I've heard of so many twins named Faith and Hope. Guess because the two words go hand in hand?

It sounds like a cute read!
