Publisher's Summary

Robin Mulcahey has always dreamed of being a big-time actress. As a college student, she took endless drama classes and finally snagged the lead of Maggie in Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
Now, six years later, she's one of the country's hottest soap-opera stars. She's just won a Daytime Emmy for her portrayal of South Riding's bad girl, and now when it seemed life couldn't get any more perfect, she's wed Declan Blair, an up-and-coming Irish film actor.
So what's the problem?
Robin Mulcahey is dead. She was killed in a devastating car wreck in 1996 while riding with her best friend Amy Shiley. Amy, battered beyond recognition in the accident, was mistaken for Robin and has played the role of Robin Mulcahey ever since. But Amy's never been able to forget the love she shared with Paul Mulcahey, Robin's older brother.
If you had the chance to become someone else, would you take it?

Would recommend

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Sure, though the voice was a bit rushed which made it hard to keep up.

Any additional comments?

Aside from the fact that the voice was too fast, the story was overall entertaining even though it was an odd start. It's not something I'll gush over 24/7 but I wouldn't say no to recommending it to others.

In this family everyone has a secret

What was one of the most memorable moments of Understudy?

When Declan tells Amy who he truly loves, I had my suspicions but was still surprised.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

In the end when Amy and Paul confront Paul’s Father about what he’d done to Robin, It’s hard not to cry for that scene.
