Publisher's Summary

A "fresh, funny, and satisfying" (New York Times best-selling author Jennifer Weiner) story about the complicated bonds of sisterhood. 

Twenty-nine-year-old Lindsey Rose has, for as long as she can remember, lived in the shadow of her ravishingly beautiful fraternal twin sister, Alex. Determined to get noticed, Lindsey is finally on the cusp of being named VP creative director of an elite New York advertising agency, after years of 80-plus-hour weeks, migraines, and profound loneliness. But during the course of one devastating night, Lindsey’s carefully constructed life implodes. Humiliated, she flees the glitter of Manhattan and retreats to the time warp of her parents’ Maryland home. As her sister plans her lavish wedding to her Prince Charming, Lindsey struggles to maintain her identity as the smart, responsible twin while she furtively tries to piece her career back together. But things get more complicated when a long-held family secret is unleashed that forces both sisters to reconsider who they are and who they are meant to be.

I'm sorry I wasted my money

This was one of the few books I have not finished. I didn't get past 5 chapters. I found the story line boring and the narrator irritating.

Wonderful Story of Sisters

I loved this book. It to me is about 2 sisters who thought each other had a perfect life and each was wrong. Unfortunately it took a tragedy to bring them together. It resonated with me because my sister and I were totally different and when I lost her at an early age, as I age, I find myself wondering what would have happened it we had just talked.

UGH - kept waiting for the story to get better

This was not worth listening to. I liked another book by this author, so I thought I’d give this a try. Maybe it was the narrator that made it so hard to get through? Wouldn’t recommend.

Ugh

The story was pretty good, but for the first time I almost stopped listening because I could not stand the narration! Wish I would have just read it!

A nice ride

I felt like I was losing a friend when this book was over. You will definitely cheer Lindsey on as she walks her unexpected path of self discovery.

Couldn’t stop listening

This was May 3rd book written by this author. I was absolutely emerged in the story. I would definitely suggest this book. It taught me to “jump” and take chances.

Just another hallmark movie plot.

I couldn’t stand the main character. Nobody who is that successful would be that insecure and that delusional about everyone around her.

Terrible Narration

Darnit! I tried ignoring the stilted narration but it completely ruined the whole story for me. I couldn't handle it. Finally I just turned it off. Wasted my money. I liked "The Wife Between Us" so much. They should redo this one using someone else. Maybe I will read if I ever get time. I have a long drive to work and listen every day. I can only comment on the performance as I never made it past Ch 1.
