Natalie's mother always dreamed of living a rich and exciting life in London and Natalie feels as if she's finally fulfilling her mother's dreams.

In fact, Natalie thinks Cressida's life must be filled with glamour and excitement, the kind of things that her life is missing. When Natalie gives in to temptation and opens up Cressida's mail, she finds an intriguing letter filled with a man's name and intriguing information about his large fortune. In a wild moment, Natalie decides to contact the man, Simon Rutherford, and pass herself off as Cressida Langton. As Natalie begins dating Simon, she finds herself living the life of her dreams. But when reality intrudes and Natalie's little white lies begin to catch up with her, her life begins to spiral out of control."
