There is nothing shameful about Veronica Blade's FROM FAME TO SHAME. This feel-good romance had me rooting for the heroine all the way to the very end!

When Maddie's starlet twin sister Jackie calls her up on the edge of a nervous breakdown and begs her to save her from insanity, Maddie drops everything to rescue her. When Maddie shows up to whisk her sister away, she learns that Jackie intends for them to switch places for a while so she can get her head straight, but Maddie is a self-proclaimed "country girl" and wants no part of the glitzy and glamorous lifestyle Jackie lives. With the help of Jackie's trusty assistant, Stella, Maddie is transformed into her bad-girl twin overnight. There is just one problem: Jackie's hunky, movie star ex, Dallas, who live right next door! Distancing herself from the man proves to be a lot more difficult than she expected - he seems to be around every corner she turns and appears to have his sights set on Maddie.

This quick read, FROM FAME TO SHAME, was funny and sweet and sometimes made me cringe a little when Maddie found herself in awkward situations while impersonating her "bad-girl" twin. Though I really enjoyed the book, I found that I wanted to know more about Jackie. I really hope the author has a follow-up book in mind so we can get a taste of this bad-girl in Hollywood.

If you are looking for a fun quickie, this one should do the trick for you!
