For 35 years, identical twins Anna and Amelia lived separate lives, each unaware that the other existed. When Amelia finds Anna on a DNA testing website, she travels from Chicago to Moonglow Cove, the small Texas town where Anna has lived her entire life. Amelia’s visit is a shock to Anna and her family. And while the twins look alike, their personalities couldn’t be more dissimilar. Anna is loving and gregarious, while Amelia is reserved and standoffish. Anna is quick to welcome her newfound sister and excited to get to know her, but the mystery of how they became separated at birth and Anna’s family’s reservations about Amelia cast a shadow over their reunion. When Amelia reveals the real reason she sought out her twin, it seems that the fears of Anna’s relatives are valid. But Anna is determined to keep her newfound sister in her life forever, even if it means risking her own life to do it.
VERDICT Wilde’s second novel set in Moonglow Cove (after The Moonglow Sisters) is a redemptive story of the healing power of unconditional familial love and the potential to grow through life’s struggles. It’s sure to please the author’s many devoted readers, and fans of similar authors, like Susan Mallery and Kristan Higgins.
