Pieces of Dreams by Jennifer Blake
and Caleb are set to be married in a few weeks. But then Caleb’s
identical twin brother, Conrad, shows up in town for the wedding and
life gets more interesting. Melly is one of the only people who can
tell them apart which works for Conrad as he impersonates Caleb once or
twice to keep the local tongues from wagging. But when Conrad kidnaps
Melly and takes her down the river, not only do they have to deal with
her being terrified of the water but their feelings for each other. Can
they survive the trip down the river and all that comes with it or will
their relationship be over?
The mischief that Conrad can cause due to being an identical twin
propriety is ignored – book is set in 1800s. But it is explained
usually due to Conrad being out of town for years and not having to be
concerned with it.
Caleb is not always portrayed nicely due to how the author wants to make him look.
