Two women with the same name end up in the same apartment building in New York City. One is beautiful, rich, and seems to lead a glamorous life. The other is a divorcee who teaches pre-school at a fancy-ass private school. She likes her life but starts to feel kind of dowdy and out of it compared to the woman in the penthouse. Their mail, deliveries, etc. are always getting mixed up with the good stuff always belonging upstairs. There are lots of wrong calls to the preschool teacher instead of the bombshell and one night she pretends to be the bombshell and agrees to go on a date with the caller. She wants to tell him the truth, but can't bring herself to do it. They might have parted ways except that one of her students gives her a gift that she brings to a jewelrey store to have checked and is reunited the man she went out with. The piece of jewlery turns out to be stolen and other events happen. The two characters fall for each other and have an adventure figuring out what is going on.

I had fun with this Nancy Drew-style of mystery crossed with a good not-so-old-fashioned type of romance.

A interesting way to find the man of your dreams by having the same name as your neighbor who is a famous journalist, and you're just a school teacher for preschoolers. Fun, challenging.

This about a pre-school teacher searching for some excitement and takes on the identity of someone with the same name as hers. It was good enough to warrant reading if you are looking to escape from more intense mystery books.
