This was pretty fun to read, though a few recurring themes/grudges/assumptions carried on too long IMO, or perhaps were mentioned too frequently for it to be a rollicking, who-is-she and what-the-hell-happened-while-I-was-gone read. 3.5 stars. Also no kilts, but no deduction due to my assumption, leghose can be hot, too.

The story involves some great weaving in of 12th century historical figures (not 'present' in the story but influential on events) and a switched-at-death premise that kept me re...more

Me pareció que fue un libro que prometía, sin embargo no lo logro del todo. La narración estuvo bien y el argumento también, sin embargo la forma en que se desenvolvió la historia fue mala, a mi parecer. El modo en que todo era un secreto, un misterio y luego de repente el protagonista simplemente descubre todo por suposiciones, no hubo nada que se lo confirmara mas que unas vagas declaraciones de la protagonista.

Clare is forced into an affair with the Scottish prince to protect her husband, but earns his scorn and his death sentence. Dying herself, Clare begs her identical twin sister Johanna to take her place and raise her son. Now seven years later, Johanna is shocked when Drummond returns.

Amazingly, the whole 'taking her sister's place' scenario doesn't lead to any bad blood or mistrust between Johanna and Drummond. That in itself is a novelty. However, this just seemed a little on the bland side.
I quite enjoyed this book. It had a good storyline and quite a few witty comments here and there. The only real problem I had with this was Drummond's constant need to accuse his "wife" of infidelity and to hear her admit to the transgression. That part got a bit tiresome but the rest of the story was quite entertaining.

Overall, I'd rate this 3.5 stars.

I'm a fan of switching places books. They create all sorts of mayhem you just can't get any other way.

It's a sweet love story about forgiveness.
