Review: Doubting Abbey by Samantha Tonge

Doubting Abbey by Samantha Tonge

Publisher: Harlequin
Pages: 313
Format: eARC
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Pizza waitress, Gemma, must pass herself off as aristocratic Abbey Croxley for two weeks, in order to help struggling Applebridge Hall win the reality show Million Dollar Mansion. With the right clothes and accent, anyone could pull that off, right? Except that she wasn't counting on arrogant Lord Edward pulling her heartstrings - nor a most unexpected person unravelling her web of lies... Will the truth be revealed before the show's final and destroy Applebridge Hall's future, along with a secret romance?

Kritters Thoughts:  Gemma is a regular girl who lives with someone from the upper echelons of society in England.  Her flatmate would like to follow a man, but her family is calling on her to help win a prize, so Gemma steps up to help.  

The characters were fantastic.  From the very beginning I wanted to know what trouble Gemma was going to get into and how she was going to get herself out!  With a reality tv show filming and a grand prize, it was fun to see some behind the scenes antics.  I thought Edward's blog posts were good, but I felt like they could have been even better; I wanted more from them.  

A fantastic book that was sweet and light hearted.  I liked the ease with which I was able to read this one.  As some of you may know, I don't always read books set in England because I don't get all the humor, but this one had just the right amount to feel authentic, but not to confuse the true blood American that I am!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Ebook 2013 Challenge:  76 out of 50
