Publisher Comments:

Innkeeper’s daughters Adele and Eleda are “mirror twins”—identical twins whose looks are reflections of each other’s—and their special talents are like mirrors, too. Adele is a Safe-Keeper, entrusted with hearing and never revealing others’ secrets; Eleda is a Truth-Teller, who cannot tell a lie when asked a direct question. The town of Merendon relies on the twins, no one more than their best friend, Roelynn Karro, whose strict, wealthy father is determined to marry her off to the prince. When the girls are seventeen, a handsome dancing-master and his apprentice come to stay at the inn, and thus begins a chain of romance, mistaken identity, and some very surprising truths and falsehoods.

Synopsis:

This sequel to "The Safe-Keeper's Secret" continues the story of the "mirror twins" Adele (a Safe-Keeper) and Eleda (a Truth-Teller). When the twins are 17, a handsome dancing-master and his apprentice come to stay at the inn, and thus begins a chain of romances and mistaken identity.

I like the world Shinn has created, with people being born with a gift that makes them tell the truth at all times or keep secrets. However, these unique characteristics don't overshadow the narrative. This is a story about two mirror twin girls and their friends growing up together, finding themselves, and figuring out what they want in life. There are broken hearts, disappointed dreams, and many very happy, touching moments.

If you enjoyed The Safe-Keeper's Secret, you will love The Truth-Teller's Tale. For those new to the series, if you like romantic coming of age stories with a light fantasy backdrop, you will love these books.
