My book, Second Chances, continues the intriguing story of Darcy and Danielle, identical twin sisters, who have inherited a fortune from their deceased father, Fred Coulter. They live luxuriously in the same condominiums building in Manhattan with their respective husbands. Their story begins five years after Despicable Lies left off.
Darcy is married to Mark Donovan, a nationally acclaimed sportscaster and Danielle is the wife of Alex Stone, a renowned trauma surgeon and professor of surgery at a prestigious New York hospital. The girls reconnected in the last book, after a fifteen-year estrangement and have reaffirmed their “twin connection”. However, soon circumstances in their own professional lives and in their marriages separate them again – but this time geographically, not emotionally.
The intriguing thing about these “girls” is their resiliency. No matter what is thrown at them, they eventually overcome it and become victorious.
Since the book just recently came out, I don’t want to spoil the story for my readers. Please buy Second Chances, so you can follow along with them and me in future blogs. In the spirit of fun, I will list some facts about the girls that may or may not appear in the books about them, but may help them become more real to you.
