Just Like Me, Only Better by Carol Snow (Book Review 2010-99)

Product Description

From the author of Here Today, Gone to Maui, the story of a woman who finally got a life...some else's.

Ever since Veronica's husband found the love of his life-not her-she's been a walking zombie with runny mascara. It doesn't help that she keeps getting mistaken for Haley Rush-the Hollywood starlet whose dazzling life is plastered on every magazine.

When Haley's manager offers Veronica a job as a celebrity double, it only takes a moment before she says yes. Veronica gets to drive Haley's car, wear her phenomenal clothes-and have fun with her hot celebrity boyfriend, Brady Ellis. Too bad the job's only part-time, and at the end of the day she has to return to her life as a cash-strapped substitute teacher and cub scout mom.

But when real sparks fly with Brady, is it a fantasy come true or a disaster in disguise?

This is the perfect way to lose yourself on a summer afternoon.  This could have been retitled something cute with a takeoff on the Prince and the Pauper since there is a similar theme.  Veronica has faults, lots of them, but not quite as many as the star she is paid to impersonate.  Of course it all goes south and both Veronica and Haley finds their true purpose in life.  I really enjoyed this one!
