Pretending she’s her twin gets complicated when Hope is shipwrecked with a handsome castaway. When rescue comes, will she risk her heart to confess the truth or will they part forever?
Pretending to be her sister, Hope Everly finds an adventure at last. The Caribbean’s warm waters and tropical islands fulfill nearly all her dreams. When an excursion to visit another island with a naturalist expedition is interrupted by a storm, Hope is stranded on a desert island where she and her fellow castaways are dependent on a handsome stranger for their survival.
Alejandro Córdoba, trapped and alone on the island long enough to give up all dreams of rescue, knows nothing of what has become of his war-torn homeland or his family. When he finds the beautiful Miss Everly washed up on the shore, along with her companions, he does not know if their arrival is a blessing or a curse.
Hope’s behavior, acting one way with Alejandro and another with her friends, further confuses things when they begin to fall in love. If rescue ever comes, will telling Alejandro the truth mean losing him forever?
Alejandro Córdoba has been alone and stranded on an island. He believes that his dream has come true when an “angel” washes up on the shore. However, this angel is not alone.
Hope Everly is torn between pretending to be her twin sister in front of her friends and wanting to be herself with Alejandro.
I loved the character of Alejandro, and he was so perfect for Hope. Hope has spent her entire life being compared to her sister and found wanting. Alejandro sees her for who she really is.
I liked that there were a number of challenges and everything didn’t wrap up neatly. I also found Grace’s first meeting with Alejandro very funny.
I have never read a book about people being shipwrecked during this time period. It was an interesting take on the concept.
Returning to this little club of friends from previous books felt so familiar. I am looking forward to reading Isaac’s story.
