When Greg informs her he loves someone else, she is hurt, but needs a boyfriend fast. Through a friend she hires actor Mark Simpson to portray Alex. However, her mom manages to spin things further out of control when she plays matchmaker and soon a bewildered Sam finds herself engaged to her hired hand.

DRESS YOU UP IN MY LOVE is an amusing screwball romantic comedy that readers who appreciate an out of control chick lit tale will appreciate. The story line focuses on Sam, who dives from one dilemma into an even more complex disaster and spiraling even deeper into trouble. Fans will enjoy this comedy of errors weaved around a web of innocent deceit.
