"An entertaining version of a classic plot"

We all dream of the glamour of stardom, and for Meredith whose twin is a TV star; an irresistible temptation presents itself for her to take the place of her glamorous sister for a fantasy night.

Meredith was horrified when Tony Valentine explains that the event is not an evening, but a two-week contract. Tony needs Marley Madison as the star to kick-off Valentine Studio's new Actor Fantasy Camp and save their failing family business. Finding an unskilled impostor is forcing him to take drastic measures. Falling in love was a distraction he didn't need, and his off-beat and often humorous family isn't helping matters.

The dynamics of both the Valentine and Madison families as well as the emotional situations were presented so that readers could empathize with Tony and Meredith even though we don't live the 'life of the rich and famous'. You will be entertained by idiosyncrasies of the secondary characters and the situations Tony and Meredith find themselves in while they work out their relationship.

Although this is a sequel to PERFECT TOGETHER (which I have not read - YET), there were very few times in the intro where facts from the previous story were needed, but enticingly presented. PERFECT SWITCH stood on its own merits of plot and humor. The old sayings "grass is always greener on the other side" and "Don't judge another until you've walked a mile in their shoes" provides insight why the classic 'switched' plot holds many possibilities and Ms. Plumley presents us with selections to appreciate. You can be assured an entertaining reading experience when you pick up this book.

Are you ready for the fantasy of a lifetime?

So asks the invitation Meredith Madison finds while house-sitting for her TV-star twin sister, Marley. Admittedly, her life could use a little —okay, a lot —more excitement. Glamorous, talented Marley has always owned the spotlight, leaving Meredith to fill the role of jeans-and-tee-shirt brainiac/wallflower. Weary of living in her sister's shadow, Meredith decides to grab the chance to step into Marley's Jimmy Choos. And when a limo arrives to carry her away to her "fantasy," the guy in the back seat is dream-come-true number one...

Entrepreneur Tony Valentine has spent his adult life avoiding Hollywood —yet here he is, trying to rescue his family's floundering movie studio. His idea for an actor fantasy camp is the perfect plan...but something isn't right about his headlining celebrity instructor, Marley Madison. Sure, stars sometimes dress down, but she looks a tad too familiar with the softer side of Sears. The woman's klutzy, awkward, and adorable. This can't really be Marley...can it? Whoever she is, she's going to have to charm the wealthy "campers" into believing her act. If they're anything like Tony, they'll find her irresistible...
