Right from the start this book became a page turner, but I will have to read some more books for all the answers.
Violet Colby's Mom is in a coma after being injured in a horse ridding accident..she had just had a fight with her brother Jack. Her brother had wanted information about his Dad!!
We find Violet in Fort Worth TX...looking for information on their Dad. What happens could only be with God looking out for her...I can't even imagine. Putting myself in her place...after all those years...finding out she has a sister...and identical at that!
We find out that Violet and Maddie were infants when the family?? broke up...but even more amazing is that there are another set of twins?
We don't find out any answers, but keep reading. Belle, Violets and Jack's Mom doesn't come out of her coma, and their Dad has not yet been reached.
I want to read the next book in this series, they have pulled me in.
I received this book from Netgalley and the Publisher Love Inspired, and was not required to give a positive review.

The plot is far fetched. I read all 163 pages, which in my view is too short to be called a novel. You are left on the last sentence feeling totally cheated. You have no idea what happens to any of the characters except perhaps Violet and Landen, but worse you don't care because there is no conclusion. You are just supposed to buy another book, which may end up as disappointing as this onelWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Her Surprise Sister by Marta Perry
Texas Twins Book 1
Violet Colby was minding her own business while sitting in a coffee shop when a man came up to her acting as if he knew her. One thing led to another and she soon was face to face with Maddie Wallace...a woman who looked identical to her. The two soon find out they are twins and the journey begins to find out what happened. Maddie’s dad is out of the country and can’t be reached and Violet’s mom is in a coma. Why the secrets and separation?
Landon Derringer had promised Maddie’s father and brothers he would protect her while they were gone. He had failed his own sister but wouldn’t fail Maddie. As identical as the two women were, Landon found himself seeing how different they were on the inside. As the mystery of their separation grows, so does his protective nature. He soon finds himself watching over both of them.
This was such a great story and the beginning of what seems to be an exciting series. We meet the first of the characters in this book and the beginning of the mystery. The people who can solve the mystery are not around to answer questions. The next book is Maddie’s story, Mirror Image Bride by Barbara McMahon, Book 3 is Carbon Copy Cowboy by Arlene James, 4 is Look-Alike Lawman by Glynna Kaye, 5 is The Soldier’s Newfound Family by Kathryn Springer and the final book will come out in December, Reunited for the Holidays by Jillian Hart. I’m looking forward to the rest of the stories and seeing the puzzle pieces come together.

Stars Now I have to wait for the next book in the Texas Twins series. I hate to have to wait. The first book in the Texas Twins is Surprise Sister was a hit in my eyes. It has mysteries,romance,caring community, no sex scenes or swearing to make me cringe. Loved the characters and can not wait to meet the others brothers & see why it happens. It looks like thier are 5 books in the series by 5 different authors. Violet Colby's come to the big city of Fort Worth, Texas to see if she can find who and where her father is. She stops first at a coffee shop she needs the caffine to help her think what to do next. Violet is sitting by the window looking out when A guy comes in and starts to talk to her in a rude way. Tells her that he still wants to marry her. She knew he was coming to her apartment in 5 minutes how come she is not home waiting for him. Violet thinks this guy is crazy and tries to leave and he grabs her by her arm. She has no idea who this guy is. Finally he realizes that she is not Violet and asks her to give him 5 min. to explain. Landon Derringer makes a call and tells who ever is on the phone that he might have the answer to the letter she got awhile ago. To come to the coffee shop right away to meet someone. Landon tells Violet to wait till Maggie comes. Maggie is still mad at Landon when she walks into the coffee shop and stares at Violet. Violet stares back at her in shock. Except for hair and clothes they are the exactly the same. They figure they are identical twins. Maggie dismisses Landon and invites Violet to her apartment to talk. Violet tells Maggie that her mom is in a hospital in a coma and she knew she was born in Fort Worth. Violet looking at a picture on the wall and asks who the younger guy is. Maggie tells her thats her big brother. Violet gets her phone out and shows a picture of her big brother Jackson. They are the same another set of identical twins. Maggie shows Violet her younger brother picture and wants to make sure that thier is not another twin. Maggie comes to the ranch with Violet so she can meet her brother and tomorrow go to the hospital and as least see her mom. Her older brother is a cop working undercover and can't be reached. Her father is a doctor helping in another country right away and is not reachable by cell but he will check emails when he can get to a different place that has service. Her younger brother is in the milatary over seas and just tells him to call when he can. Landon gets a P.I. he has worked for him to check the hospitals for twins born that day. He is upset that Maggie just took off with someone they just met an hour ago and follows her. He has promised his best friend and Maggie brother that he would watch over her when he is undercover. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley. 06/26/2012 PUB Harlequin Love InspiredWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
