Overview

Dear Reader:

The Sherbrooke family saga continues with James and Jason Sherbrooke, identical male twins who look exactly like their beautiful Aunt Melissande, and not at all like their father, the earl, which riles him no end.

James, twenty-eight minutes older than his brother, is the heir. He is solid, is James. He’s a student of astronomy, rides like a centaur, and, unlike his brother, Jason, enjoys learning the ropes of managing his father’s estates. He no longer sows excessive wild oats, as his neighbor, Corrie Tybourne Barrett, a brat he’s known since she was three-years-old, looks forward to doing since she turned eighteen. When she nearly shoves him off a cliff, sneering all the while, James hauls off and spanks her.

A promising start. Then, unfortunately, the earl, Douglas Sherbrooke, is shot at. This leads to Georges Cadoudal, a Frenchman in the employ of the English war ministry with whom Douglas had dealings with some years before. But Cadoudal died in 1815, fifteen years before. Were there children who might want revenge against Douglas? But the question is why: Georges and Douglas parted friends, at least Douglas believed that they had.

Adventures compound; Corrie hurls herself into the thick of things. As for Jason, not quite a half an hour younger, he loves horses, wants to start a stud farm, still sows more oats than a man should be allowed, but finally meets a girl who stops him in his tracks. And then what happens?

You will have to listen to the book to find out. I hope you enjoy yourself. The characters are rich, colorful, and a hoot to boot. The mystery will confound you.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Those who are drawn to the humor and cozy family dynamics of Coulter's Bride series (The Sherbrooke Bride, etc.), starring the lovable Sherbrooke family, will relish this new installment, which focuses on dashing identical twins James and Jason. The twins have had their share of sexual escapades, and though they think they still have a few more years to sow their "wild oats," romance sneaks up on them. James finds himself drawn to his tomboy neighbor, Corrie, who transforms from duckling to swan for her first season in London. Meanwhile, Jason waltzes into love with the alluring and mysterious Judith McCrae. But the twins' romances are put on hold when someone tries to kill their father, Douglas. Suspicion revolves around a man named Georges Cadoudal, a French spy who died 15 years earlier. Douglas suspects that Cadoudal's children may be trying to seek revenge, but he doesn't know how to track them down. Those new to the Sherbrooke family may be baffled by the mystery surrounding Cadoudal, but they'll be thoroughly charmed by James and Corrie and the affectionate banter among the family members, though some of their gags grow old after a while. A clever surprise ending wraps up the mystery subplot neatly and will ensure that many readers return for the next entry in Coulter's Sherbrooke saga. (Mar.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
In this continuation of the Sherbrooke family story begun in her "Bride" saga, Coulter focuses on identical twins Jason and James and their romantic lives. Jason is drawn to his young neighbor Corrie, who is in her first London season. The tale switches to the men's father, the earl, after someone shoots at him. A large part of the novel involves protecting the earl from further harm while trying to find out who shot him and why. Jason is kidnapped and rescued by Corrie, while James meanwhile falls in love with the mysterious Judith. The ending wraps up the mystery very neatly while allowing for more books in the series, ones that will likely feature James. Anne Flosnik reads professionally and competently, although there are no pauses between chapters, which can make plot changes confusing. For romance and popular fiction collections.-Mary Knapp, Madison P.L., WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
