Charlotte Gorman loves her job as an elementary school librarian and is content to experience life through the pages of her books. That couldn’t be more opposite from her identical twin sister. Ginny, an Instagram-famous beauty-pageant contestant, has been chasing a crown since she was old enough to enunciate the words world peace, and she’s not giving up until she gets the title of Miss American Treasure. And Ginny’s refusing to do it alone this time. She drags Charlotte to the pageant as a good luck charm, but the winning plan quickly goes awry....

What a great sister story with some sweet romance (hot hero) thrown into the glittery fun book loving mess. It's true....to really find ourselves, sometimes everything we know to be true has to be challenged. Even our self idenity. Very nice read

Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette. Where to go from there? From bad to worse, apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire - and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate.

The hero and hetione are truly fun. I enjoyed the characters. A bit too much description for me.
