His Leading Lady - Romance in the West End of London

We LOVE the West End of London - nothing like a great play, ballet or opera - and here's a book based on some of the behind-the-scenes drama, HIS LEADING LADY by Paula Martin.

This is the Amazon product review:
Jess Harper's predictable life is turned upside down when she discovers that Lora, her twin sister, has disappeared. It's just a week before rehearsals are due to start for a new West End musical in which Lora has the lead role. Jess decides to pose as her sister in order to save Lora's career. This brings her into close contact with arrogant theatre director Kyle Drummond. Attraction sparks between them but there's also evidence that he had been dating Lora. So is Jess simply a substitute - in real life as well as in the show? And what will happen when Lora eventually returns?

This is what the reviewers say (and there are HEAPS of great reviews!):
His Leading Lady is the perfect e-read for summer, whether you are waiting for kids at swimming lessons or relaxing on the beach. Paula Martin knows theater, and she's created an exciting backdrop for a sizzling love story. 
I will be quite honest and say that I was taken in by the first chapter and it was hard to put my Kindle down until I'd finished reading the entire novel!! Paula has brilliantly written a page turner that dives the reader head first into romance, intrigue and mystery, set in England's Theatrical West End.

What do I say:
London - what a great place!  The world of the London West End sounds like a wonderful setting for a story.  The reviewers love it and I'm sure I will too!
