My Review

In a time where we all need a giggle this book is the perfect prescription.

I loved the storyline – I mean who wouldn’t want to imitate their sister and get a chance to see if the grass really is greener and what it is really like to be a wife and mother.

I laughed throughout this book, it is the sort of story to make you giggle out loud and smile as you read. Ella is a vibrant character who is the polar opposite to her twin sister Emma, so as soon as Emma reveals her plan you just know its going to be hilarious. Ella is fiesty and a much more impulsive person and as you read you begin to wonder if this is a part of her personality she can keep in check whilst she is living undercover as her sister.

A great read that I really enjoyed reading, the characters were great and I loved the scrapes that Ella got herself into and then tried to wiggle back out of. I love it when a book calls to you and I kept picking this back up at every opportunity to see what Ella was going to do or say next.

Book Blurb

The perfect house, the perfect husband and the perfect life… or is she just faking it?

Life has been a bit of a rollercoaster for Ella. Growing up as the ‘less successful’ identical twin to her ‘perfectly successful’ sister, Emma, has left her feeling isolated, inadequate and let’s face it.. a little bitter.

When Emma unexpectedly reaches out to Ella in a time of need, Ella suddenly finds herself with the opportunity to fill in for her sister and experience how the other half live.

But as Ella navigates the world of gossiping mothers, rebellious teens and trying to play the model housewife (not to mention avoiding the temptation of attractive men at the school gates…) will she discover that all is not always as it seems on the other side?

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
