I have no idea where this book came from. Does anyone else ever have that problem? I'm an avid reader so I regularly buy gently used from my favorite second hand store. I also pick up books from the library overstock sale. Plus, people know I'm a reader so I'm always being handed books that people think I will enjoy. I have no idea which category brought me this one.

Here's what I do know: it's a romance (not my favorite genre), It had a really pink cover (my least favorite color), and it claimed

Ewwww. I'm sorry, I just cannot get over the gross factor and Freudian weirdness of the main character sleeping with the heroine's twin sister...and later falling in love with the heroine (and no, that's not a spoiler -- it's revealed within the first few chapters). Just...ew.

Also, the secondary story is only connected to the main in the very loosest of ways and didn't really have much of a reason for being there.

Marnie is your typical woman going through the motions of life, but not really living it. She is living in her deceased father’s home, teaching piano lessons and her night out consists of her making a little extra money playing the piano in the evenings at a department store. But her life is about to be turned upside down when she is approached by three different men convinced that she is a lethal woman named Lila. The first man in awe gives her undercover papers, the second man threaten her int ...more

In this romantic comedy, the heroine is a piano teacher who also works playing piano at an Ohio (Cleveland, I think) department store. Then one night, as she's walking out to her car, she's apparently mistaken for someone else. Someone who is a spy? The hero is absolutely convinced she's his old partner in the spy business. He takes her in, because she's apparently gone rogue, but he can't break her story. The shrink they bring in says that's because she's lost her mind, and believes she really ...more

I just finished reading this book and I found it to be just the thing I needed after having practically melted my brain attempting to finish a semester of school and then deal with Christmas vacation.

I was expecting nothing more than a cheesy romance novel when I was given this book by a friend of mine and I was wrong, because it was truly enjoyable. I loved the moments of suspense such as those at the beginning and was truly glad when they didn't go into the details of what kind of training som

I actually enjoyed the secondary romance much more than the main one. The ending for both seemed a bit rushed and I'm not sure why they had to tell two completely different stories only linked by the fact that Ellie works for Noah. The main romance didn't have enough build up and Noah isn't a very interesting character. Ellie and Daniel were a lot of fun, but the pacing suffered from sharing a book.
This review will seem familiar because the same review will go for every book in this series, and that's not a bad thing. It was a fun and fast read. I would recommend to anyone who was looking for something that didn't require a lot of thought. It was cute and worth a beach read or a rainy day read to fill your time. I am giving it a two star even thought I would like to give it a two and half star because even though the book wasn't very deep it was still greatly entertaining.

A music teacher is mistaken for her government twin who she does not know exists. It is a great read. The characters are strong and funny. The prior book You've got male needs to be read first so that you understand whats going on in this book.

Quirky and funny. Music teacher and part-time lingerie saleswoman Marnie Lundy's biggest thrill is playing piano at the local mall...until the night everyone seems to think she's somebody else!
Then the fun begins....

This is hilarious! I loved the weird twist at the end. I only wish that Noah hadn't slept with every female character in the book...

I thought this book was very cute and held my interest. I actually finished it months ago but hadn't been able to update the status due to lost password.

Spy Novel. Good duel romance story lines. Left you wanting to jump into the next book because the mystery never gets solved. Really nice surprise twist at the end.
