Here is a little about the book:

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?

Discover the brilliantly funny new romantic comedy from top 10 bestseller Portia MacIntosh. Perfect for fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Sophie Ranald and Lindsey Kelk






Alright, are you looking for a laugh out loud, fun and lively romcom to take the winter blues away? I’ve got one right here from one of my favorite Boldwood authors, Portia MacIntosh.
Check this out….

Let’s see, first you start your apartment on fire, next you get evicted (even though the fire wasn’t your fault) and then get sacked from your job, all of this in the same day. Sounds like things are starting off pretty well huh? (note sarcasm) Then your twin sister who you’ve scarcely seen in years calls (you know, that twin who just “has it all” and is totally put together) and asks you to do her a favor and “take her place” for the next 6 weeks at her house because she needs to go away for a while without anyone knowing……what exactly would you do?

Well that’s exactly what happens to Ella, and when her twin sister Emma makes that call, Ella completely agrees to the plan. I mean how hard could it be to live the high life and take care of a niece and nephew she doesn’t even know? Easy peasy right? Not so fast……

There are no words to explain what a total delight reading this book was for me. Between the laugh out loud moments of Ella’s mishaps, the enchanting new “friend” Marco, the capricious teenagers she is now “mothering,” and the “Yummy Mummy Mafia” (don’t even ask), this book has got it all. Through this journey of misadventures, watching Ella find her way and figure herself out just ends up being the icing on the cake. Such an entertaining and satisfying read, I guarantee you won’t be able to put it down once you start, and when you do, I’m certain those winter blues will be gone.
Highly recommend!

Thank you so much to Portia MacIntosh, Rachel Gilbey from Rachels Random Resources, Boldwood Books, and Netgalley for my gifted copy of this book for my honest and unbiased opinion.
