Descripción

When they first met Lord Jeremy William Radcliffe, Charlie and her twin sister, Elizabeth were escaping from their uncle-taking turns acting the young gentleman to avoid detection. But Charlie couldn’t help falling head over heels-and out of a window-for the handsome lord. Of course, that was only the beginning; Lord Radcliffe insisted on showing “him” and her lovely sister to London.

But how could he do that? With every touch, Radcliffe seemed unknowingly to incite indecent desires in Charlie, and his fraternal intent was certain to land her in a fine mess. Though it was a great game to play a boy, there was more fun in being female. And after one brush of his fiery lips when her guise was gone, Charlie swore to be nothing but his fiery woman forevermore.

    Twins Charlotte ("Charlie") and Beth are running away from their horrid uncle who is marrying them off to the highest, and most scoundrel, bidder to pay off his steep debt. They are caught in the act of running away by a Lord Radcliffe who decides to take them under his wing for awhile until they can get on their feet and get to London. He doesn't know the half of the story, however, as he believes he is helping a lad named Charles (Charlie disguised as a man) and his sister Beth. Hooray for another fun romance and adventure story from Lynsay Sands! This author is quickly climbing up the charts of my favorite authors and I am so glad my friend recommended her to me (Thanks Laura! :) ). There was adventure, surprise twists, embarrassing moments that had me blushing for the characters, mixed with warmth of friendship and steamy romantic scenes. The concept of the twin girls playing brother and sister and switching roles was unique. Especially as the romance is concerned when Radcliffe finds himself attracted to the sister at times and confused by his attraction to the brother at other times. The bond of sisterhood between Beth and Charlie was very relatable. The compromises that they made for each other and their strong sense of loyalty to one another reminded me fondly of the relationship with my sister and I. Although I am not a twin as they are, how they developed separately yet still tied to one another resonated with me. The only thing that I had to take one star away for was that the narrative would switch between Charlie and Radcliffe without distinction which I found to be confusing at times. It was also confusing when Radcliffe was called Jeremy only in the last few pages when he had been called Lord Radcliffe the entire book. That being said, I did really enjoy the book! I loved the main character, Charlie, and how strong, fearless, selfless, and full of integrity she was throughout the story. I found it incredibly endearing how Radcliffe took Beth and Charlie under his wing and then Charlie took Bessie, puppies, and a mother and her 2 children and then another orphan under her wing, that was still under Radcliffe's wing. It was like an umbrella effect and my love for the book grew as their troop expanded.I would recommend this book for those who enjoy a hilarious love story with an underlying theme of loyalty. Furthermore, I would recommend this book for readers who enjoy historical romances with adventure, twists, and puppies! I would not recommend this book for readers who may be triggered or offended by gambling addiction, prostitution, suicide, alcohol addiction, explicitly sexual scenarios, kidnapping, violence, mild foul language, and murder.

    Twin sisters, Charlotte “Charlie” and Elizabeth Westerly, are on the run from an uncle determined to marry them off to the highest bidders. Escaping out a window, Charlie, disguised as a boy, collides with Lord Jeremy Radcliffe, who takes it upon himself to aid the “brother” and sister. Alternating between male and female costumes, Charlie’s attraction to Radcliffe only increases the more time they spend together, but can she trust him with her secret?

    Utterly ridiculous!

    Lynsay Sands Devil of the Highlands is an engaging historical romance series, which led me to expect more of the same from another of her historical books. Unfortunately, The Switch does not even come close to meeting these expectations.

    The cross-dressing plot goes on for a tedious amount of time and when the secret is finally revealed in a haphazard manner, there is virtually no reaction on the part of the hero. Shouldn’t he be angry at being duped for so long? Moreover, for a supposedly intelligent and worldly man, Radcliffe is blind to the ruse and does not understand his on/off attraction to Charlie and her sister, Beth. This is completely unbelievable, especially considering the fact that other characters catch on more quickly.

    Charlie and Radcliffe’s romance is tepid to say the least. They have absolutely no chemistry whatsoever and the fact that Charlie is dressed as a boy for much of the book adds a rather uncomfortable tone to their relationship.

    The secondary suspense storylines have potential, but are poorly executed with no real tension or action to speak of and the resolutions feel very contrived.

    All in all, this is way to farcical and implausible to be entertaining.

    Lynsay Sands is always amusing and this book was no exception. Despite being utterly implausible, I chuckled and was amused.

    After reading 13 Reasons Why, I felt a need to read lighter books-and one that I could finish quickly. Switch by Carol Snow was my ultimate choice.Here's a synopsis from the author's site:Not much happens in Claire Martin’s sleepy little beach town, but that’s okay.Let her hang out with her best friend, dream about her favorite lifeguard, andswim on the high school team, and she’ll be happy.Only one little problem:Whenever Claire she gets too close to lightning, her spirit shoots into anothergirl’s body. Usually she’s back to her old self in no time – but suddenly shefinds herself stuck as someone else: a breathtaking summer visitor who hascaught her crush’s eye.Will Claire ever figure out how to get back to her old life? And, more importantly, will she want to?Switch wasn't a book that's going to really change anyone's life or pose any earth shattering questions...but it is a fun litle book (I read it during the course of one day). As the title might suggest, most of the story transpires during Claire's big 'switch' so you dont' get a lot of her life before she switches with Larissa.While Larissa and Claire are switched you do learn a good bit about both girl's lives-but most of it is pretty superficial. ..A lot of it was pretty predictable stuff (from the rich family Larissa's acting as nanny for to Larissa and her parents to Claire--though saying how would be spoilery).So, while this book doesn't present anything new and some of the characters seem to be (slightly) formulaic/predictable, there were also well thought out points around the entire 'switching' events and I liked that the book centered on a longer switch but also explained why it was longer. It would have been possible to just say that the entire switching bodies in general was strange and unpredictable so the long-term switch was just a fluke. That would have detracted from my enjoyment of the book, though, so I'm glad that Ms Snow kept up a consistent reason for why Claire wasn't switching back.I also quite enjoyed the secondary story surrounding Claire's grandmother and the way it (and she) developed through the book.Switch wasn't a book that's likely to change your life, but it is a book that you can read when you want to enjoy something that won't take too long to read and won't depreess you either (like I said, I read it after 13 Reasons Why).

    Author: Carol SnowPages: 224Source: Purchased from Barnes and NobleSeries or Standalone?: StandaloneWhen lightning strikes and electric currents are in the air, Claire Martin temporarily switches into the body of any nearby girl born under the same moon as her. She knows she’s not normal ... but she’s dealing with it. Besides, it usually only lasts for a few hours and then she wakes up in her own body. So when she finds herself trapped in the body of the beautiful new girl in town, her whole world is turned upside down. This emotional story with a sense of humor explores the bonds between friends, crushes and family and the meaning of identity as Claire struggles to hold on to her own.* * *This book was different than how I thought it would be, but not in a bad way. Instead of being so focused on the fact that Claire was a body switcher, it was more focused on her relationship with her mother, and her feelings on not knowing who her father was. The whole story was more geared towards making Claire thankful for what she had- - because some people did have it worse than her, even if it didn’t seem like it.It also sort of surprised me how her “relationship” (does it count as a relationship when it’s not your body?) between Claire and Nate never developed into anything. This story was more suited for a younger grade audience, I think. Teens from 12-14 would be the ideal audience, maybe some 15 year olds.Overall, the concept of the book was extremely interesting. I just wish the idea of body switchers had been delved into further. It could have been a much more exhilarating story, even though it was a great story already.As for the cover, I feel like it completely misrepresents the book. Claire is a swimmer, and as she describes it herself, she is not girly at all. She has a swimmer’s body, which is, again, not girly. The whole point is that she traded places with Larissa who is the uber-beauty. They missed the whole meaning of the book with the cover.Other books by this author:Getting WarmerBeen There, Done ThatJust Like Me, Only BetterSnapHere Today, Gone To MauiPlot: 2.5/5Cover: 1/5Writing: 4/5Uniqueness: 4.5/5Characters: 4/5
