The Accidental Beauty Queen
The Accidental Beauty Queen | Teri Wilson
26 posts | 28 read | 21 to read
In this charming romantic comedy perfect for fans of Meg Cabot and Sophie Kinsella, critically acclaimed author Teri Wilson shows us that sometimes being pushed out of your comfort zone leads you to the ultimate prize. Charlotte Gorman loves her job as an elementary school librarian, and is content to experience life through the pages of her books. Which couldnt 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 shes not giving up until she gets the title of Miss American Treasure. And Ginnys 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 when Ginny has a terrible, face-altering allergic reaction the night before the pageant, and Charlotte suddenly finds herself in a switcheroo the twins havent successfully pulled off in decades. Woefully unprepared for the glittery world of hair extensions, false eyelashes, and push-up bras, Charlotte is mortified at every unstable step in her sky-high stilettos. But as she discovers theres more to her fellow contestants than just wanting a sparkly crown, Charlotte realizes she has a whole new motivation for winning.

This a good palate cleanser from a couple of more difficult reads that I have recently read. I doubt I will remember this book in a month though. There are some nice references for all us book lovers though in here.

The Parent Trap meets Miss Congeniality. When Charlotte's beauty queen sister Ginny invites her to Orlando to spend the week of a big pageant with her she jumps at the chance to spend some time with her twin - and five days at the Wizarding World. When a freak allergic reaction forces her to trade in her wand for a baton the formerly "ugly" duckling becomes beautiful just by taking her hair out of her messy bun, ala every 90s teen movie ever.

I had great fun meeting Teri Wilson & listening to her read from The Accidental Beauty Queen. Her #Hallmark movie Northern Lights of Christmas is showing again on Movies & Mysteries this week so I‘m off to DVR in a minute. #romantsy #romcom

This was the perfect end to summer read. It's a mix between Miss Congeniality, The Parent Trap, and The Princess Diaries, and it's so cute! When Charlotte's twin sister can't compete in her lifelong dream pageant because of an allergic reaction, she reluctantly agrees to take the stage in her place. It's all about finding your confidence and coming into your own. And the adorable romance helps, too!

ModernMrsDarcy.com Summer 2019 Reading List

Rom-com is not my favorite genre but this book was cute. I could actually see them making a film based on this story. Hmmmm ... Who would play Gray?

I‘ve seen a lot of people posting their #top6reads of 2019 so I thought I‘d join in the fun. Only after I made my choices did I realize I‘d picked 2 books, 2 ebooks, and 2 audiobooks lol.

Cinfhen I love that you used all three mediums!!!! 5mo
Bklover I have The Aftermath but haven‘t read it yet. Will have to bump it up! 5mo
Shibbyfruitfly @Cinfhen Thanks. I‘m an all media reader 😁 5mo
Shibbyfruitfly @Bklover You should! I really liked the book and then I watched the movie and I realized I liked the book even more than I‘d originally though. 😊 5mo

4.5 ☆ A quick, fun rom-com about twins that pull a switcheroo at a Miss American Treasure pageant. Charlotte puts me in mind of a very bookish Grace Hart in Miss Congeniality. A shy school librarian, no makeup, Harry Potter nerd, loves Pride & Prejudice, not Fifty Shades of Grey like her twin. She finds her own Mr Darcy but can it last w/her posing as Miss Texas? Discovering oneself is the big picture here and I loved that about this book. #MMD

This book was cute! It is due back at the library tomorrow (well, later today) so I stayed up late to finish. It was a quick read that I enjoyed. The author has written books that became Hallmark movies, and that's exactly what this was. It's a good summer read, from Modern Mrs. Darcy's list. I checked off others I've read ( a few before the list was released!).

Finished this cute book last night. Charlotte, typical introvert book nerd, trades places with her beauty queen twin when the twin has an accident and can‘t compete. This is a fun light read.

My weekend reads. The tagged book I am currently reading. Finished Kingdom of Ash finally and finish Love and Gelato in a day. I loved both. Kingdom of Ash was a satisfying ending to the series with lots of action. Love and Gelato was so cute! #weekendreading

Not a big #RomCom book fan but sometimes you need something light to read in between. Finished in 1 sitting! A fun fast read with lots of Jane Austin & #HarryPotter references to satisfy all the book nerd in us. Librarian twin sister hoping to vacation but ended up switching with her beauty queen twin. Loving all the Miss Congeniality & Princess Diary moments. A feel good about yourself &who you are story!

☆☆☆☆☆ I loved this book! So much so that I stayed up until 2am reading and only set it down at my husband's insistence, quietly setting my phone on vibrate to wake me at 6am so I could enjoy the ending.

"Recent hijinks aside, I am generally a good person. An honest one. I don't even dog ear my books, much less engage in the Sandra Bullock rom-com subterfuge I'm currently engaged in at the moment."

Loving this book! Librarian protagonist who keeps experiencing Anne Hathaway and Sandra Bullock moments amidst seasoned pageant gals and a gassy French bulldog rescue. Who needs sleep? I may stay up and read this beauty cover to cover...

A cute fluffy book great for fans of romantic comedies, Miss Congeniality, and plots revolving around twins switching places.
