Olga Bicos. Shattered (2003) 348 pp. [pbo]
Divorced and a former rising architectural superstar, Holly Fairfield knows how fast one can fall from grace. To save her collapsed career she has relocated
from Seattle to San Francisco where her brother, fresh from being fired from corporate America, joins her. Holly feels she has gotten her break when surprisingly
Daniel East hires her to renovate the familys landmark restaurant The Cutty House. Daniels uncle, aunt and cousin are stunned when they are introduced
to Holly. She also notices their odd reaction towards her, especially from Ryan. She later learns that she is the doppelganger of Ryans deceased fiancée Nina
who died a decade ago in an automobile accident with everyone blaming him for her death. As Holly and Ryan fall in love, she believes he still loves Nina, not
yet understanding the dysfunctional interrelationships between his family members.
