Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Those who are drawn to the humor and cozy family dynamics of Coulter's Bride series (The Sherbrooke Bride, etc.), starring the lovable Sherbrooke family, will relish this new installment, which focuses on dashing identical twins James and Jason. The twins have had their share of sexual escapades, and though they think they still have a few more years to sow their "wild oats," romance sneaks up on them. James finds himself drawn to his tomboy neighbor, Corrie, who transforms from duckling to swan for her first season in London. Meanwhile, Jason waltzes into love with the alluring and mysterious Judith McCrae. But the twins' romances are put on hold when someone tries to kill their father, Douglas. Suspicion revolves around a man named Georges Cadoudal, a French spy who died 15 years earlier. Douglas suspects that Cadoudal's children may be trying to seek revenge, but he doesn't know how to track them down. Those new to the Sherbrooke family may be baffled by the mystery surrounding Cadoudal, but they'll be thoroughly charmed by James and Corrie and the affectionate banter among the family members, though some of their gags grow old after a while. A clever surprise ending wraps up the mystery subplot neatly and will ensure that many readers return for the next entry in Coulter's Sherbrooke saga.

From Booklist

In her latest Bride series installment, Coulter presents two identically handsome twins, James and Jason Sherbrooke. James has been tormented by Corrie ever since she was three years old, and is hoping that she will no longer be a thorn in his side now that she's about to set off for her first Season in London, but when James discovers what a lovely young lady the hoydenish Corrie has become, he realizes he has a whole new set of problems. As though the new and improved Corrie isn't enough to contend with, someone is trying to kill James and Jason's father. The twins must find out who wants their father dead, but James is distracted by Corrie, and Jason finds himself thinking about the beautiful and charming Judith, the one woman who just might tempt him into giving up his rakish ways. Coulter whips up another madly romantic, supremely sexy adventure, rich with eccentric characters and the author's special brand of fanciful humor. John Charles

Coulter's recent historical romances have been pretty half-hearted, when compared to her "classics," but this was a true low point.
This book, in short, has the flaws of her other work without any of the charms. These flaws include the strange, stilted dialogue which she seems to feel is endlessly witty (curses using animal parts, characters "hitting each other over the head" with zingers or suggestive asides, male characters insulting female characters' intelligence based on their "womens' parts," etc.) as well as the strange tendency towards sexual violence that Coulter has always been drawn to. Many of her erotic scenes over the years have been, effectively, rapes and the love scene in Sherbrooke Twins is no exception. While a little excess passion once in a while can be interesting, a lot starts looking kind of dark and unhealthy. Why does Coulter think her reader wants her heroes to turn every wedding night into a scary, sticky, sore, demeaning experience for her heroines? It's 2004-- it's okay for female characters, even regency females, to enjoy sex right off the bat now! They don't have to get through a gauntlet of pain and humiliation first. They don't have to get abused by hubby just so we can feel bad for them and then revel with them in hubby's guilty and sincere apology (and his generous peace offering of belated foreplay and tender lovin'). I just don't find that all that sexy time after time. In fact, I find it a little medieval and mysogynistic. Paging Dr. Freud!
You'll also find some overused Coulter phrases in this one, such as the infamous "fat as a stoat." Catherine, a stoat is a weasel. A weasel is a relatively thin animal. Why must you use this expression in every novel? Why the constant comparisons to animals in general?

Let me start by saying that it was a challenge to keep reading this book. The first half was just awful but the second half made for an easier read. The main characters made me feel as if I was reading a teen novel. The twins especially James came across as a nineteen year old and Connie well, she acted like a spoiled twelve year old tomboy who never matured into a woman mentally. James practically raised her, really raised her and taught her about her body. The girl dogged his heals thirteen years to the point where he found her pathetic and childish. The girl was obsessed with James. It seemed like they only got together because they were compromised and they were comfortable with each other. It was remarked upon on several different occasions they were like brother and sister and how weird it might be on there wedding night. The whole romance to me was incestuous. As for James and Jason at age twenty-five, living at home with there parents instead of having there own place and becoming independent men. What was that about? Maybe if they had moved away and came back five or more years later and saw the girl who'd become a woman it would have been different. I agree that this by far the worst Catherine Coulter book I've read.

This is mediocre at best. I have read many works of Coulter's, and this simply is not among her greater novels. The back plot detracted from the love story of James and Corrie, and I never got a sense for why Jason loved Judith. I admit, the ending was very nice and sad, but it was too obvious a set up for a sequel. I'll read the sequel, of course, because I think Jason will prove to be the more compelling twin now that his heart has been broken already. My only disappointment is that James and Jessie Wyndham are going to be involved, apparently, and I hated the Valentine Legacy with a passion. Ugh. I just don't like those Wyndhams. Especially the Duchess. I could have sworn I'd scream if I read the word "ditty" one more time. Hopefully they won't figure too much into the novel. I guess my biggest complaint is that I wish I could have seen more of the romance developing and a more coherent back story. It was easy enough to see there was something shady about a certain handful of characters that I won't name so as to not spoil the novel for others, but it just left me flat. This was no Sherbrooke Bride or Scottish Bride. It was nice to see Alex and Douglas still happy together--but I still believe they would have booted that old woman out of the house much sooner than that. This novel was a nice attempt and a decent way to kill some time on an airplane, but little more than that. I wanted more of the twins than what I had received.

I thought it was pretty good - not as good as the original Sherbrooke Series. There were some really funny parts with the Cinnamon Bread that had me laughing out loud but I saw another reviewer say they thought this was a filler book for the next book which will probably be about Jason the younger twin. I think she is right.
I was left thinking that Catherine wasn't really into writing this book.
I agree with other reviewers too that poor James and Corrie's story could have been amazing but was just boring since they were basically part of a filler story. I would have much rather had the story without all the other junk put in there; At least with more of James and Corrie's thoughts. There was no thoughts from either of them for example James struggling with his new found attraction for Corrie or vice versa. It was like oh we need to get married - okay. I felt really cheated by that - and I know Catherine has it in her to write amazing books with great characters! I just felt that she made James and Corrie 2 dimensional and boring because she wanted to use the book to build up to Jason's story.
The sex was so glossed over too - first off there was no sexual tension - no even with the first kiss - for either twin and their beloveds in the books. And I know Catherine can write better love scenes. Once again I just think this was a book to fill people in on what was going on to start the next generation of Sherbrooke stories - and poor James and Corrie's characters were the sacrificial lambs -with a shabby love story - that could have been amazing!
Of course I will read the next one though - because I think it will be much better.
I also hope that Devlin gets his own story too!
