Overview

Swapping downstairs for upstairs… How hard can it be!?

Look up the phrase ordinary girl and you’ll see a picture of me, Gemma Goodwin – I only look half-decent after applying the entire contents of my make-up bag, and my dating track-record includes a man who treated me to dinner…at a kebab shop. No joke!

The only extraordinary thing about me is that I look EXACTLY like my BFF, Abbey Croxley. Oh, and that for reasons I can’t explain, I’ve agreed to swap identities and pretend be her to star in the TV show about her aristocratic family’s country estate, Million Dollar Mansion.

So now it’s not just my tan I’m faking – it’s Kate Middleton style demure hemlines and lady-like manners too. And amongst the hundreds of fusty etiquette rules I’m trying to cram into my head, there are two I really must remember; 1) No-one can ever find out that I’m just Gemma, who’d be more at home in the servants quarters. And 2) There can be absolutely no flirting with Abbey’s dishy but buttoned-up cousin, Lord Edward.

Aaargh, this is going to be harder than I thought…

Praise for Samantha Tonge

'I was hooked from the start, by this impressive debut novel' - Chicklit Club

'This really was a humorous read, Gemma is such a witty character who always seems to get herself into mischief, I never expected this book to be a witty read but it was the humour that kept me hooked.' - Rea Book Reviews

' Samantha Tonge has taken an every-day girl and stuck her in this crumbling manor where she has to pretend to be her best friend and help win a reality TV program. She takes all our guilty pleasures and wraps them in one good read.' - Novel Escapes

    This cute book had it all--the upstairs/downstairs divide, a love of classic chick flicks, a reality show, a hunky English nobleman and a flipped identity, not to mention romance, debauchery, cooking and family secrets! While the English slang is predominant, I would expect nothing less than a book set in England. Plus, I love any work that can work in the word "eejit," which is one of my favorite words. The story is of Gemma, who takes her roommate's place at the family estate to help them win a reality show. Hilarity ensues as Gemma, who is anything but refined and posh, tries to play aristocrat. A cute read for any chick-lit lover, especially those who also love Downton Abbey!

    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.
