Faking It Portia MacIntosh 5*#Review @PortiaMacIntosh @BoldwoodBooks @rararesources #boldwoodbloggers #RomCom #BookReview #BlogTour #FakingIt

The perfect house, the perfect husband and the perfect life… or is she just faking it?


Life has been a bit of a rollercoaster for Ella. Growing up as the ‘less successful’ identical twin to her ‘perfectly successful’ sister, Emma, has left her feeling isolated, inadequate and let’s face it.. a little bitter.

When Emma unexpectedly reaches out to Ella in a time of need, Ella suddenly finds herself with the opportunity to fill in for her sister and experience how the other half live.

But as Ella navigates the world of gossiping mothers, rebellious teens and trying to play the model housewife (not to mention avoiding the temptation of attractive men at the school gates…) will she discover that all is not always as it seems on the other side?

I received a copy of this book from Boldwood Books via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

This author has the talent to take everyday characters and scenarios, drawing out the humour, poignancy, and romance in them. Faking It is the perfect example of this. Ella and Emma are identical twins but with different lives and luck. When Ella’s life implodes, and her sister unexpectedly reaches out to her, she grabs the opportunity to live her sister’s life for a while.

This is a lovely combination of hilarity and poignancy as Ella realises that things aren’t always what they seem and what she truly wants in her life. The characters are relatable, but avoid being stereotypically and the plot has a few unexpected twists as it unfolds.

This story is packed with vibrant characters and vivid events, cleverly written to create a heartwarming and uplifting escapist read.
