Oh! You can’t help but love this witty, entertaining romance featuring more twins than you can count. Oh! Oh! 😊 This author’s stories are always fun to read because the stories are entertaining and the characters are so very likable. While we always get two romances in each book, this one is special because the two romances are between two sets of identical twins. WOOT! Oh! Did I also mention there is a ghost? Yep, and you’ll love him.

Andrew Comber and his twin brother Anthony are in trouble – big trouble. They are the heir and spare to the Aimsley earldom – and they’ve just been expelled from Cambridge. They have never, ever, taken advantage of being identical before – and this one time when they did, they were caught. Though the professor understood, the dean did not. Now, home in disgrace, they have heard their father’s punishment and it is a harsh one. Their allowances have been stopped immediately and they must both wed this season.

Dahlia and Diana Fitzwilliam are the identical twin daughters of the Earl of Norwich and much to their parents’ chagrin, they have decided they will not marry. It isn’t that they have anything against marriage or men, their objection is to the duties of the marriage bed. Oh!

When Andrew and Anthony decide that Dahlia and Diana are the women for them, they set out with determination – and the help of the girl’s dead father – to woo and wed the ladies. While there aren’t a lot of pitfalls along the way, the advice and candid ‘chats’ with the ghost could certainly go awry.

You’ll love the cameo appearances – mostly in name only – by the characters from previous books. While the Comber and Fitzwilliam families are a bit unconventional in their discussions, you’ll find them delightfully refreshing – and a whole lot of fun.

I can definitely recommend this book and I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I did. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars outright is the nonchalant way the girls accepted learning that the man they thought was their father was actually their uncle. Also, I thought the boys accepted their fate a bit too easily. No push back – no exploring other options before bowing to their father’s wishes.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
