When she survives a car crash an idea is born. What if she had died? With the help of her Personal Secretary a plan is hatched.
Starting over isn’t easy. Especially for someone that is accustomed to a certain lifestyle; someone used to living the life of a princess. Literally, a princess. In her life before her “death”, Lydia was a princess — presumably Princess Diana (although she is never named).
What if Princess Diana had faked her death and decided to live the run of the mill, humdrum life of a middle class American? She would have to rent an apartment. Go to the grocery. Pay bills. Get a job! The former Princess Diana could be serving you pancakes or waxing your lip!
I loved the idea of this book. I have always said that Elvis faked his death and is living on a ranch in North Dakota. This was a quick read, great for a vacation. Its one of those books meant to be entertaining, not to be over analyzed.
The characters were likeable and their friendship with Lydia is believable. They do not know who she used to be. They were likeable but could be developed some more. Lydia even has some flaws stemming from her previous life.
