Mary Davies and Isabel Dwyer have been best friends since childhood, but Isabel needs to be the center of attention since her own parents hardly care that she exists. Isabel can be a fun, loyal friend, but she can also crush Mary so she won't be out-shown by Mary. So Mary doesn't really want to go on a vacation with Isabel nor play dress-up to satisfy Isabel's love of Austen. However, her latest project at work was a flop and her new boss has made it clear she wants to fire Mary. The man that Mary is interested in is dating someone else, not to mention that he's leaving the area soon. So she ends up going with Isabel.
There were detailed descriptions of the house and of Bath, so you feel like you're there and part of the party. Isabel says some mean things that echo what her father has told her. When she gets a cruel message from her father, she has a mental breakdown and fully takes on the role play, forgetting her past--and is a much nicer person that way. Mary has to try to help her while dealing with past betrayals by Isabel (and healing from them). She also has to deal with some misconceptions she has about her romantic match. It's fun watching them interact, and they're better people for having known each other. She also has to find the courage to deal with the job situation back at home.
There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this interesting romance.
