#BookReview: Twin Piques by Tracie Banister #ChickLit

I received a review copy

twin piquesSummary:

Forensic accountant Sloane Tobin and kooky pet psychic Willa may have the same face, but that’s the only thing these identical twins have in common.

How she can read the hearts and minds of animals has always been a mystery to Willa, and her rotten luck with men is equally baffling. Although she’s been looking for “The One” for what feels like forever (A teenage marriage to a French mime and dating a guy named Spider seemed like good ideas at the time!), optimistic Willa refuses to give up on love. When she meets Brody, the handsome rose expert hired to save her grandmother’s garden, she’s instantly smitten, but why does he keep sending her mixed signals? Does he return her feelings, or is their attraction all in her fanciful head?

Unlike her twin, Sloane has zero interest in romance. Her passion is her job, where she uses her gift for numbers to take down slimy embezzlers and asset-hiding spouses. When she’s assigned two high profile cases, Sloane feels confident the promotion she’s been angling for is within her grasp. But will her plan to climb the corporate ladder be thwarted by difficult clients, her co-worker-with-benefits, or – most surprisingly of all – her own sister? And how’s she supposed to stay focused on the drama at work when her childhood friend, Gav, moves in next door and the spark between them becomes impossible to ignore?

To get what they both want, can Willa and Sloane band together and rely on each other’s strengths? Or will their differences drive them apart once and for all?

Review:

When reading this blurb, I knew without a doubt that I was going to love this book. I mean – a pet psychic? Yes, please! That alone seriously had me hooked, but I knew I was going to get a fun and funny chick lit story from Tracie Banister as well. I wasn’t wrong, folks – I absolutely loved it! Laugh out loud funny and fast-paced, I followed twins Willa and Sloane without abandon along the way. I loved each character equally, and they are both so well-written and different, yet loveable. Okay, Sloane can be a little rough around the edges and Willa sometimes had her head in the clouds, but two very loveable sisters none the less. The pet psychic parts nearly had me in stitches (and I really wish I had one in this area to help me out with Aries!) and all the romances along the way were quite interesting! Just when I thought something was going down the predictable route – wahbam! – a new twist occurred. A chick lit treat not to be missed!
