When It Comes to My Twin, I Throw My Hands in the Air

I don’t think my twin, Sarah Blair, is ever going to cook and I can’t understand it. If I didn’t bring her CARE packages from my restaurants, Southwind (white tablecloth) or The Southwind Pub (much more casual), I swear she’d only eat pizza, take-out food, or anything she can pick up from a drive-through. Even her cat is more discriminating than Sarah is.

What my sister does well is solving crimes. I should know. My name is Emily Johnson. If it wasn’t for Sarah, I’d probably still be sitting in jail accused of killing Sarah’s ex-husband with a taste of my award wining rhubarb crisp. My food may be to die for, but as I repeatedly explained to the police, no one dies from eating my creations.

They didn’t believe me. The police were convinced I’d killed the rat, I mean Bill Blair. Trust me, if I’d wanted to do that, I could have done it anytime during the ten years Sarah and Bill were married. With his allergies, an accidental sprinkling of nuts would have quickly done the job. I didn’t have to get fancy.

I could tell you more, but the story about my wonderful twin and the sleuthing she used to save me from being sent to the big house already has been written. It’s called One Taste Too Many. To win an e-copy of One Taste Too Many tell me about your twin or siblings.

  1. No twin, but my sister sounds like the opposite of yours. She's a professional chef, and I don't think she's solved any crimes. Luckily she's never had to clear my name either! mbradeen [at] yahoo [dot] com

    1. In real life, my author, Debra H. Goldstein, feels the same way about the kitchen as Sarah, but her sister is a fantastic cook. Maybe we should introduce our sisters?

    2. We should definitely introduce them, and perhaps give them some dishes to prepare as a thank-you for our efforts!

  2. I am the middle child of five siblings - all girls. When we all are able to get together, we love to play games such as Mah Jonng, Balderdash and Pictionary. We make each other laugh so much that it is hard to finish the games! Once we were playing Scattergories, and one of the questions was "something in the room that starts with a 'T.'" One of my sisters wrote "talking device" instead of telephone, even though both started with a "T." She had just blanked out about what it was called (I guess you had to be there, but it was so hilarious that we couldn't finish the game!)

    1. Five sisters! Wow! How joyous until, I bet, when one "accidentally" borrowed something out of another sister's closet. Sarah and I are so different, I 'm small and she's tall, I never had to worry about that, but with five of you.....

  3. Always wanted to be a twin. My mother said one of me was more than enough! I do have an older sister.

    1. My mother sometimes said the same thing --- of course, she was thrilled when I gave birth to twins (this is written by the author not Sarah or Emily)

  4. I'm not a twin, but I have a great Sister. We are nothing alike, but we do similar tastes, like reading, crafts and traveling.

    1. Sounds like a great relationship ... similar to the one depicted in the Sarah Blair series.

  5. I'm the oldest of three and our mom was a twin. None of us had twins though. Plus we lost my younger sister 6 years ago now. We still miss her.

  6. I don't have a twin, or a sibling, but I have three "double" cousins. You see, my Mom's brother married my Dad's sister, which results in double cousins...the closest thing to siblings I can get!

  7. My husband's family had that exact situation X 2 in that 2 sisters married 2 brothers so there were a lot of doubles running around.

  8. My sister was 2 years older than me. She was killed in a small plane crash in Nairobi, Kenya in 1980 when she was 32. I still miss her. lkish77123 at gmail dot com
