A romance novel with a twist. Clara’s life is perfect: she has a gorgeous boyfriend, Paolo, she lives on a wonderful Mediterranean island, Sardinia, and she has great family and friends. What more could she possibly want? A wedding, of course.
Paolo is bound to propose soon, probably on the occasion of her 25th birthday. However, things turn out differently as Paolo unexpectedly leaves Clara. Her whole world crumbles, and from that point on things start to take an unusual turn.
Clara is approached by Lucilla, a mysterious girl who offers to help. She can win Paolo back for her, but in return Clara has to fulfil a bizarre request. Nothing makes sense to Clara, but she’s prepared to fight to get Paolo back.
Lucy and Poppy are identical twins. They are in their twenties and live in London. Even though they look similar, their personalities are quite different, if not opposite.
Poppy has been travelling the world after graduating, whilst Lucy has settled down, got a job and bought a lovely flat. The only thing missing in Lucy’s life is romance. Poppy offers to help. After all, she’s seen the whole world so surely she knows how to handle this?
The perils of metropolitan London prove harder than those of the Columbian jungle. Poppy soon realizes that finding Mr Right for her sister will take a lot more than she bargained for, but she’s not going to give up.
This is more a chick-lit novella than a romance novel. The love–hate relationship of the twins is evident in their humorous conversations, and will make you wonder who to root for – Poppy or Lucy. There’s only one way to find out.
