I am not a big fan if historical fiction. There are a few books here & there that I have enjoyed, but I am definitely more of a modern fiction fan. Fortunately, Jude Deveraux writes both.
Carolina Isle is the story of 2 cousins from very different backgrounds who are tired of their respective lives. Luckily, it just to happens that they look almost exactly alike, so they hatch a plan to trade places, both imagining the other girl’s life to be more desirable.
I have to say that there were elements of this book that were a bit predictable, but the over all storyline had me captivated right up ‘til the end. In my opinion, Jude Deveraux has a real gift of hooking the reader & keeping them on tenterhooks through to the last page.
