Getting Away With It – Julie Cohen

imagesCA88UTSK

  Liza Haven couldn’t wait to escape the small village where she grew up with her perfect identical twin sister, Lee. Her life in LA as a stunt woman is reckless, fast and free – and that’s just the way she likes it. But when a near-fatal mistake drives her home, she finds Lee gone and everyone in the village mistaking her for her twin sister. Liza has to deal with her ailing mother, the family ice cream business, and Lee’s dangerously attractive boyfriend. Liza’s always been the bad twin, but as she struggles to keep up the masquerade and puzzle out where her sister has gone, she realises it’s not so simple. She’s spent her whole life getting away with it – is it finally time to face up to who she really is and where she really belongs?

 

So the gist of this book is there are two twins, one a “good” (Lee) then other “bad” (Liz).  Lee disappears and Liz returns home to take her place running the family ice cream business.  Liz takes her place because in their home village she’s not liked at all and feels it’s easier to pretend to be the good twin.  I thought that it would be confusing as the twins have quite similar names but the story when following Liz is in first person where when following Lee it’s in third person.  There’s also the standard complication of a love interest for Liz who happens to be Lee’s boyfriend!  It’s a good read, something to save for a rainy day.
