Carbon Copy Cowboy by Arlene James
Texas Twins Series Book 3
Jack Colby was never quite satisfied that he didn't know more of his past. Who was his father? Did he have other relatives? But his mom, Belle, refused to answer. On the final day he asked they argued and she took off on her horse, ended up being thrown and has been in a coma ever since. Jack has carried the guilt and blame for that day. Refusing to look for the past didn't work when his new sister showed up and he found out about his twin brother. The last thing he needed was the beautiful blonde who was in a car wreck with no money, nowhere to go and no memories of who she is or where she came from.
"Kendra" as she was named by a young girl in the hospital, was frustrated not remembering but she knew she had faith and also that she wanted to help Jack find peace in his life. Only the moody handsome cowboy just became more distressed with each failure to find information. Worse yet she was falling for him and knew she couldn't, not without knowing who might be out there waiting for her to come home. A fiance or worse yet_.a husband.
In this third book of the series we still have a missing father and a comatose mother. Jack seems to take on all the anger and guilt for everyone along with feeling inadequate every time he hears about his twin brother, Grayson the undercover cop. Not to mention some mystery person leaving Bibles with each twin and a mysterious note along with them. The fourth book, Look Alike Lawmen, introduces us to Grayson and maybe more answers to their past. A really enjoyable series that makes it hard to put the book down.
I don't know how Arlene does it, having written more than seventy books, but she does know how to create a good, believable story. I loved the description used in this story and just wanted to keep on reading to the end of the current chapter_
Everyone in the area knew that the sharp curve at the base of Blackberry Hill was a dangerous spot. More than one driver had missed the turn and careened off the road. Some cars flipped, and one had even flown right over the bar ditch and plowed into the massive hickory tree on the other side. Nearly all of the accidents happened at night or in poor weather, but unless this particular driver slowed down, they were going to have a crash in broad daylight on a warm Monday afternoon in early September.
"Lord, help whomever's in that car," Jack prayed, "before it's too late_ Despite its precarious position, the vehicle didn't appear to have suffered much damage. A female with long blond hair slumped over the steering wheel and through the open window trailed what looked like a long, white wedding veil.
"Hey!" Jack called. "You okay?"
The woman lay still as death, her head all but wedged into the steering wheel. Finding that he couldn't reach the driver's window from the bottom or side of the ditch, Jack quickly ran around the car. He dragged a fallen tree limb over and positioned it so that he could ease out to the passenger door, which he thankfully found unlocked."
Jack Colby finds out that he has a twin brother, whom he never knew about. Despite the bond that is believed to exist between twins, Jack is not keen to meet his twin. He has already had a hard time adjusting to a twin sister who has come to live with them. It is not so much that he has siblings that have unsettled him, but that now there are more unanswered questions surrounding his life.
Suffering from amnesia, and not being able to remember anything about herself or her name, the beautiful blond takes on the name Kendra, from one of the girls at the hospital. Since she has no identity, no one knows where she comes from. When the time comes for her to be dismissed from the hospital, Jack offers to given Kendra a place to stay.
As Jack and Kendra have opportunity to spend more time together, a friendship forms. Each of them have a longing for something more_ but until the truth is out as to who she is and whether she already has past connections, neither of them are free to move on in the relationship and keep it just as friendship. As much as friendship can truly exist between a man and woman when there are deeper feelings involved_
