Lurleen and Lurlette...good golly! We must be in Texas! Sorry...I had to get that out my system. Now that I have your attention, we can get on with the story. Lee and Lurlette are identical twins in looks, but nothing alike in terms of fashion, lifestyle and temperament and marital status. Well come to think of it, they are completely different in every way except for looks.
Lee lives a quiet life in San Pablo as a French teacher at the local high school. Lurlette is married, again, to some millionaire. What is this? Her third or fourth attempt...whatever. Lee's barely had a date and she's harboring feelings for a co-worker her sister has nicknamed "The Halibut".
Now Lurlette is coming back to town, marriage over, and bringing with her an assortment of trinkets she just can't leave behind. Trinkets...hmmm! More like running off with the valuables. She's the epitome of royalty as far as her hometown is concerned. Now she has to figure out what she is going to do. She'll just conveniently stay with her sister Lee and let her deal with it. Not on your life!
So as you can expect, Lurlette turns Lee's world upside down. And...friends, co-workers and neighbors all get sucked into Lurlette's larger than life world! Throw in a big red diamond, two dumb thugs, a Cezanne and a tractor and you've got yourself an amusingly entertaining read. Great for a rainy weekend!
