DetailsSwapping 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.ABOUT THE AUTHOR : Samantha lives in north-west England with her lovely family and a cat that thinks it's a dog. Along with writing, her days are spent cycling, willing cakes to rise and avoiding housework. A love of fiction developed as a child, when she was known for reading Enid Blyton books in the bath. A desire to write bubbled away in the background whilst she pursued other careers, including a fun stint working at Disneyland Paris.Formally trained as a linguist, Samantha now likes nothing more than holing herself up in the spare room, in front of the keyboard. Writing romantic comedy novels is her passion. Samantha has sold over 80 short stories to mainstream women's magazines. Her debut romantic comedy novel from HarperCollins (CarinaUK), bestselling "Doubting Abbey", was shortlisted for the Festival of Romantic Fiction Best Romantic Ebook award, 2014. The bestselling summer novel 2015, Game of Scones, won the Love Stories Awards 2015 Best Romantic Ebook category. Her new novel, Breakfast at Poldark's, is out June 2016!
