Doubting Abbey

Doubting Abbey by Samantha Tonge

Another rom-com from a facebook friend. I love Sam's writing style so was looking forward to this one. When the price dropped to just 59p on Kindle I couldn't believe my luck!

Essex girl Gemma is persuaded to impersonate her aristocratic flatmate in a reality show set in a stately home. As a reader you need to suspend disbelief and accept that not only can she do this, but she can also switch back to being Gemma by changing her clothes, make-up and hair colour and people won't notice. But once you've accepted this you are in for a treat. The novel jogs along at a good pace, full of humour and wacky antics. The characters are larger than life and Gemma herself is particularly likeable. She's a great creation and I'd like to see a sequel to this book - how life progresses for her as the new Lady Croxley (because yes, she gets her man. Sorry, spoilers! But you expect nothing less from a rom-com.)
