“The one with the straight hair is Ben – just like my nephew Ben has straight hair,” I tell myself when I see the twins at church.
The first set of twins I remember were identical twins who lived across the street from my family when I was growing up. We walked to and from the bus together almost every day. There were subtle differences between them, though their personalities were very different. Eventually, they began to dress differently and one even cut her hair short which made it so much easier to tell them apart.
Through the years, I’ve known several sets of twins. And it still bothers me when I can’t remember who is who unless they are both standing in front of me. I really want them to know they are important enough for me to distinguish them. . .

But it's been eighteen months since she last saw Logan, and he claims he's not the same guy she used to hate. When they're thrown together for a Christmas charity event, Logan seems determined to prove he's nicer than he used to be. But can a bad boy really change his ways enough to change her heart?

Logan and his twin, Jake, were identical. Well, except their personalities and the fact Logan wore his hair in a messy, “just-ran-his-fingers-through-it” style. Raven was confident she could tell them apart. After all, she had a sixth sense about them.
Famous last words.
My Mistletoe Mix-Up a delightful addition to the Ridgewater High Romance series.
You might remember Raven from It Was Always You. Yeah, she was the girl who caused Noah to pretend Date Lexi in an effort to get her to leave him alone. I’m glad her story got to be told. Knowing how she always felt like the rebound girl that no one really ever loved helped me understand why she had behaved as she did.
In her typical fashion, the author deals with some heavy issues but in a manner that doesn’t drag the story down or make it sad. I was surprised to find out about Logan’s past. Wow! His turn-around from bad boy to the young man he became was admirable and made him more endearing.
If you enjoy high-school romances that aren’t angsty, then you will enjoy this one.
