Summary

‘A brilliantly funny and unique story about love, loss, family and fitting in. I laughed, I cried - I loved it.’ Holly Martin

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?

A laugh-out-loud fish out of water romantic comedy from MILLION-COPY BESTSELLER Portia MacIntosh.

A heartwarming and exciting read

I loved everything about this book from the narration to the storyline and the characters in this novel. It’s a lovely read to take on holiday.

Nothing really bad ever happens and there are so many laugh out loud moments.

There is a bit of sadness but it is all done so gently and beautifully that enough attention is given to the enormity of what the characters had to deal with. I wish there was a prequel so we get to know what Emma and Ella were actually like as children.

I think they would’ve been a lot of fun to know. Karen Cass is an excellent narrator.

I always know I am in for a treat when her name is mentioned at the beginning. Portia McIntosh is now one of my favourite authors.

Great story

I loved the narrator and the storyline was good. I didn't want it to end. I spent my days looking forward to continuing where I'd left off.

Heartwarming

What a great book, funny romantic, a great story. One of the best I've read in a while. When I came to the end I was sad just wanted it to go on.
