Twin sisters Tabitha and Harper Frost, who have been at odds for years, are forced together in the wake of a family crisis and reevaluate the resentments that drove them apart. - (Baker & Taylor)

Forced to call a truce by a family crisis, estranged identical twins Tabitha and Harper reevaluate their bond and the resentments that drove them apart from their respective homes on Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. By the best-selling author of The Rumor. - (Baker & Taylor)

The instant New York Times and USA Today bestseller about two identical twin sisters who couldn't look more alike . . . or live more differently.

Nantucket is only eleven miles away from Martha's Vineyard. But they may as well be worlds apart for estranged twin sisters Harper and Tabitha Frost.

After not speaking for more than a decade, Harper and Tabitha switch islands-and lives-to save what's left of their splintered family. But the twins quickly discover that the secrets, lies, and gossip they thought they'd outrun can travel between islands just as easily as they can. Will Harper and Tabitha be able to bury the hatchet and end their sibling rivalry once and for all?
Before the last beach picnic of the season, there will be enough old resentments, new loves, and cases of mistaken identity to make this the most talked-about summer that Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket have experienced in ages.

Author Biography

Elin Hilderbrand is six minutes older than her twin brother, Eric. She spent time on Martha's Vineyard (summer 1989) before she ever discovered Nantucket (summer 1993), the island she has called home for twenty-four years. Hilderbrand is the mother of three busy teenagers (pause and consider what a miracle it is that this novel even exists). The Identicals is her nineteenth novel.

The magic of a Hilderbrand novel is that any problem can be solved by some time on an island. In her latest, she takes on twice the problems, but don't worry—she's got twice the islands. Identical twins Harper and Tabitha Frost split up when they were 17: Harper went with their charismatic, blue-collar dad, Billy, to Martha's Vineyard, and Tabitha with their controlling fashion-designer mother, Eleanor, to Nantucket. As they grow up, apart, things happen that make the separation permanent. That is, until the summer before their 40th birthday, when Billy's death and Harper's affair with a married doctor make life on the Vineyard untenable, and Tabitha's 16-year-old daughter, Ainsley, grows beyond her Tabitha's control over on Nantucket. Despite their reluctance, the sisters switch places—Harper takes on Ainsley, as well as Eleanor's failing Nantucket boutique, while Tabitha remodels Billy's house so they can sell it for a much-needed profit. High jinks, emotional reckonings, a little romance, and a dog named Fish. Just go ahead and put this one in your beach bag; it's a perfect summer escape. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
