The book opens with what life is like for twins Aaron and Evangeline Braults. Their mother Bonnie has them on a strict routine with little time for them to just have fun. She rules the family. Their father Richard goes along with whatever she wants following a mistake he made years ago. The family are heading for Italy for two weeks holiday before the twins get back to preparing for the next school year. They go to stay with good friends Lilith and Antonio Mianis who also have twins Called Giovanni and Giuseppe. Over the two weeks Aaron spends time with Giuseppe and gets up to no good, unknown to his parents. While Giuseppe’s parents know he can be difficult to deal with and hope that Aaron will be a calming influence. Meanwhile Evangeline sneaks around to spend time with Giovanni who she falls in love with. The story follows along nicely and is an easy read. The scene is set for magical mystery throughout the book with just enough information to wet your appetite. It ends nicely with you knowing that there is going to be a sequel, which I am looking forward to reading.

I love to travel and found myself in areas I have visited all over again. You can tell that Emily writes from the heart in the areas she has visited or she has done some excellent research. The plot held me the entire time and allowed for a quick read over the weekend. I am only hoping that she has plans for another book, as I have so many questions about what will come of the characters in this delightful story.
