The woman whose life Abbey suddenly finds herself inhabiting when she wakes up. Married to handsome congressional candidate Alex van Holt. Living in a lavish penthouse.

Cute, fun, and you'll totally be torn between her real life and what could have happened. Perfect if you like "Confessions of a Shopaholic" and "Sliding Doors."
