The Sherbrooke family saga continues with the story of James and Jason Sherbrooke, identical twins sons of Douglas and Alexandra, the Earl and Countess of Northcliffe. The twinsí uncanny resemblance to their Aunt Melissande, is a constant source of irritation to the Earl. James, the heir, is the eldest by twenty-eight minutes. He is as solid as a rock, loves star gazing, and as his father has said many times, rides like a centaur. Thankfully, James has an incredible aptitude for managing the finances of his fatherís many estates. He also enjoys a shall we say healthy sexual appetite and sows more than his fair share of wild oats.

Jason, on the other hand, enjoys his many other pursuits, he swims like fish, loves horses and wants to start his own stud farm. Like his brother he also sows a field full of wild oats, however, when he meets a stunning young lady he is at a loss as to how to handle the situation. While the twins are following their paths, someone tries to kill their father.

On the trail of their fatherís assailant, they are lead to Georges Cadoudal, a French man employed by the English War Ministry with whom Douglas once had dealings. Though the possibility seems thin that it could be Cadoudal, as Douglas believes that they had parted as friends. Nevertheless, George Cadoudal died fifteen years before, but it is rumoured that he had children who might want revenge against Douglas. Time is running out as an assasin grows closer to the Sherbrookes.

Reading The Sherbrooke Twins was a fabulous, amazing, thrilling ride. Like a cross between a roller-coaster and a fun house after ten cups of coffee and three Hershey bars. With Ms. Coulterís trademark rich witty, lively characterization, non-stop action and captivating writing style you can't go wrong with this book. I have already read it twice and Iím sure you will read it many more times than that.

But donít take my word for it see for yourself.
