Veronica’s life was over… until she jumped into someone else’s…
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?
I remember the exact moment when Haley Rush’s fame reached its tipping point. I was in the produce department of Ralph’s supermarket, desperately trying to concentrate on school lunches and the price of bananas, when all I could think about was my husband, Hank Czaplicki, who days earlier had announced – well, mentioned, really – that he had found his soul mate, and she wasn’t me. An image of Hank kissing Darcy DaCosta, a.k.a. “North Orange County’s #1 Realtor!*” flashed through my brain just as a skinny prepubescent girl with blue braces and a high ponytail appeared at my side and blurted, “Can I have your autograph?”
Speechless, I stared at her, tears making my vision the slightest bit blurry, and shook my head with confusion.
“Kitty and the Katz is my favorite show!” she squeaked.
