What happens when you meet Mr Right, then find out that someone's got there first? Do you:

a) bury your feelings, convince yourself that nothing can ever happen between the two of you and try to move on?


b) fail miserably to bury your feelings and repeatedly act like an incompetent fool in front of him?

Lulu Godwin has just met who she believes to be her Mr Right in Charles Adamson. The thing is Charles has a wife and kids. So what should Lulu do about it: tell herself that nothing can happen and do everything she can to keep out of his way or should she just give in to her feelings for him and let the chips fall where they may? Of course nothing is that simple and when Lulu and Charles end up on location together for an entire week all bets are off. Lulu longs to confide in her twin sister Ali ...more

A book about cheating from the cheaters' point of view and without any exceedingly vile characters. Who would have thought I'd have enjoyed it as much as I do?

I don't condone cheating so for me to enjoy this book and breeze through it as easily as I did would put this book in a solid 3 star range. A bonus star for handling the prickly subject with as much humour and heart as Moran did.

What happens when you've met your Mr. Right only to find out he's married? This is the question Lulu faces. Doe

While I loved lulu, I just couldn't connect with the story and it wasn't as entertaining as other stories or chick lits that I have read recently. There were a lot of interesting characters but none that grabbed my attention and were super interesting.

It definitely is a good concept, having a book told from the perspective of the mistress and Lulu's interaction with her twin Alice and Ali were decent but I just wasn't wrapped up in this plot line of designing costumes for a TV show... And all I

The book had me on its excerpt but then it turned out to be dull and quite shallow. It's not that I didn't enjoy it but I really just didn't enjoy reading it.

While on Film location Lulu meets Charles, she thought she had found Mr Right, however he is ,married with children, Lulu tries avoiding Charles, however she keeps thinking about him, and finds him impossible to avoid. She tries to talk to her twin sister, but she is too busy with her boyfriend Richard. Will she find her Mr Right and have a happy ending?
Although I got through the book quickly, I did get bored with it, the story didn’t really hold my attention throughout the book, I was glad to g

Audio version, Lulu is an assistant costume designer, who suddenly finds herself in charge of the costumes for a tv period drama and falling for the male lead character. Who just happens to turn out to be married. The love story is a little lame, and unbelievable, but the other storylines are quite interesting and amusing...her twin, her twin's best friend, their half brother, and the cute policeman. Or maybe it was just the cute accents that the story was relayed in, love a good Scottish brogue ...more

Lulu works on a film set and meets her Mr Right, but he's married. She struggles with her relationship with Mr Right and with her twin sister, especially when her mentor/boss dies.

I wanted to like this book more than I actually did. There were areas where it was slow going and then it picked up a pace at the end. Over all it was an ok read but nothing to get too excited about.

The morals of story are some what questionable but I have to say this book.made me absolutely laugh out loud! it was unbelievably funny even shouldn't have been (going back to those morals). But a book none the less to.brighten a more female bookshelf and definately one to read when you need a good chuckle!
