Goodreads:  What if you meet the love of your life, but he thinks you’re someone else?

Anna and Marley are best friends. So when Anna rings Marley, panicking because she has to miss a tour of an exclusive wedding venue, Marley agrees to go in her friend’s place.

After being totally ignored by the glamorous receptionist who can tell she doesn’t belong there, Marley meets handsome hotel manager Cameron. He assumes she’s Anna and instead of admitting that she’s not the blushing bride, but the unlucky-in-love single friend, Marley plays along to see what it’s like to be Anna for a day.

After all, Marley is unemployed, single and was woken up that morning by her flatmate playing the bagpipes. Anna has a high-flying career and is planning the perfect wedding. Why wouldn’t Marley want to be her?

Only she wasn’t counting on Cameron being so smart and funny. Or this spark between them that she can’t ignore. She hasn’t felt this way about a guy in forever. But he thinks she’s somebody better.

Marley needs a way out of this mix-up to get her shot at true love. But her fictional fiancé is now standing in her way and it’s harder than she thought to stop living someone else’s life…

Kritters Thoughts:  Marley is a struggling actor and has just gone to another audition that didn't go her way when her best friend called her and asks for help she figures it is something that can eat up some of her time.  So she goes to a hotel and for her friend Anna, a possible wedding venue, is mistaken for Anna and antics ensue!  

This was such a fun read.  It was perfect for a weekend where I was getting ready for a trip and just needed something light to dip in and out of.  Everyone was keeping secrets and it was fun to see them hide their things and then when all the details came out there was still more book to go, so the reader can have a satisfying ending and not be left with a lot of questions.  

Marley was a great character.  It was hilarious to watch her to try to become her friend Anna and act engaged and as if her life was all put together.  And then to see Anna's life as it partially unraveled and although from the outside it looked as though she had it all figured out, it was enjoyable to watch these friends find the truth in each other's lives and their friendship to go deeper.  

I have one Elizabeth Neep backlist book that I need to read - The Spare Bedroom and I could see myself taking this one to the pool this summer for a fun poolside read!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
