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 couldn't 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 she's not giving up until she gets the title of Miss American Treasure. And Ginny's 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 haven't 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 there's more to her fellow contestants than just wanting a sparkly crown, Charlotte realizes she has a whole new motivation for winning.… (mais)

Sweet but tedious ( )

A lovely beach-read with a whole lot of heart – this is not your average lay-by-the-pool, sunny-day read! I’ll be honest, I almost didn’t pick this book up. It sounded a bit predictable and beauty queens just aren’t my style, if you know what I mean. But I’m so glad I did!

Pouring through this in one evening after work, I went through the proverbial stages of entertainment: I laughed, I cried, it tugged at my heart-strings. A multi-layered story of family – with all of its accompanying joys and frustrations – and of self. Of living through someone else’s eyes, learning to see things from a different perspective, and of realizing you can both love yourself and who you are while also embracing new experiences.

Charlotte Gorman, a librarian who sports messy ponytails and bookish t-shirts, is in Orlando for a much-earned vacation and to support her twin sister Ginny who is taking aim at her last shot to be crowned Miss American Treasure, following in their deceased mother’s footsteps. Ginny ends up in the hospital with a severe allergic reaction, and pandemonium of course ensues when she convinces Charlotte to take her place in the contest, just until Ginny is improved enough to step back in. Charlotte is hesitant at first, but eventually her twin convinces her. Horrified at the lie, but swallowing her pride, Charlotte dives in and unwitting learns a lot along the way about herself, her fellow contestants, and her dear twin.

This was quite a gem of a story that I am happy to give four stars, which is unusual for me - a beach read would normally rate at a three for me if I enjoyed it, as I typically prefer a more literary-style read. But The Accidental Beauty Queen, with its surprisingly hidden layers and stirring emotional depth, definitely earned that extra star!

This was cute and quirky and different from what I normally read so it was a nice break. I’m not really into love stories but the relationship based on the Harry Potter series was cute. I’m not a twin but I can totally see how this could be a fun endeavor for twins - Not necessarily a beauty pageant but in every day life. ( )

Charlotte Gorman is a Harry Potter, Mr. Darcy loving librarian. Ginny Gorman is an Instagram influencer and beauty pageant contestant. When Charlotte travels from Texas to Florida to watch Ginny complete in the Miss American Treasure pageant, she thinks the only fun in her week will be the Disney World visit and reading by the pool. Unfortunately, it could be nothing farther from what actually happens.

When Ginny has an allergic reaction to food and her face is swollen beyond recognition, she has the bright idea to have Charlotte replace her in the pageant. Oh, did I mention, they are identical twins? All Charlotte has to do is NOT be herself; and walk Ginny's dog, Buttercup. Charlotte learns to navigate one-on-one interviews with the judges, wear stiletto heals and hair extensions, and rock a spray tan. She also learns that beauty pageant girls are not ditzy air heads with only dreams of tiara's dancing in their heads. And she learns that just because a pageant judge is rich and sexy, does not me that he can't love 'Pride and Prejudice.'

Of course this is a romantic comedy, something I usually do not read. But with all the turmoil in the country, not to mention the world, I needed a break. Something fun that would leave me without nightmares at night. I have never read anything by Teri Wilson, but I will be on the lookout for other books by her. The writing is fun, quirky, and just what I needed.

If you want a fun read that will take you away (kind of like Calgon) pick this book up. 'The Accidental Beauty Queen' will leave you with a smile on your face and a better understanding of what it means to see yourself the way others see you. Not the beauty on the outside, but the beauty on the inside. ( )

Sweet but really the message has been told in much better books. It was a library book so I do not feel too bad and I was on vacation ( )
