Katie Fields needs answers about her missing mother even if she has to go to Alaska to find them. She knows Nick is the only one that can help locate her mother but he is not to gung-ho in offering much assistance. Instead, she finds a dedicated father who goes out of the way to protect his daughter.

Nick Pierce lost his wife in a tragic accident and was left alone to raise their daughter, Lily. She is the number one priority in his life. When Katie arrives, he never expected his father to have two stepdaughters.

Katie is surprised by Nick’s brush off when she arrives for answers but she will not allow his attitude to send her back home. Her twin sister, Tess was unable to take the trip because of a wound. As she searched for answers about their mother and father, so Katie took her place. Caroline, their mother was suppose to be on her honeymoon but no one can seem to locate her or her husband, Bill, which is Nick’s father. Bill often uses an alias and can get into mounds of trouble anywhere. Nick would have preferred Katie to leave. He enjoys the quiet lifestyle with his daughter and housekeeper and chooses to keep it that way. The arrival of Katie and the stirring of events have his head spinning just as much as it does Katie. He knows Katie has every right to be worried about her mother especially if she married his father. Katie continues to pursue the matter until Nick agrees to offer help in her search. But the inclement icy weather and someone out to stop them at every turn, is not the only things facing the couple as they try to fight their growing desire for the other.

Duplicate Daughter follows Tess's story from My Sister, Myself and had me on the edge of my seat in anticipation to Katie and Nick’s next move. The storyline keeps a smooth flow with the characters and the way Katie and Nick respond to each other when they are introduced kept this reader flipping the pages. Their emotions can practically be felt each time they gaze at one another. I loved the way Nick was a caring father and went out of his way to keep Lily safe. When the phone line went dead and he needed to know if she was all right, I think my heart dropped to my feet. I could practically see the worry on his face. I loved how Katie interacted with Lily, too. Ms Sharpe pens a great read with a cast of secondary characters that keep this book moving right along with action, adventure and some wonderful romance. This reader could almost visualize the setting and landscape she fashions in this captivating read that is quite satisfying.
