From Publishers Weekly:

The author of Fame and Fortune presents a contemporary version of The Prince and the Pauper that dives into the slimy side of Hollywood with positive relish. Suburban housewife Lilah Conway is shocked to hear from a twin sister she never knew she haddoubly so when her twin turns out to be Lady Rose, a famous black singer starring in an evening soap opera. A switch is made when Craig Kimball, aging actor and dedicated sadist who tormented Rose as a young actress, is scheduled to appear on the show as her newest lover. Lilah takes the part of the beautiful prima donna in sequined gowns, Rose wears a blond wig to the Rotary Club dinner and Kimball, who intended to finish the job he started years before, finds the task harder than he expected. Fans of the Hollywood Babylon genre will find entertainment here, but others will be put off by the novel's stiff start and utterly implausible plotting.

From Library Journal:

Lilah Conway, having suppressed her disappointment at failing as a concert pianist, is a reasonably contented white housewife and mother in affluent Chicago. Then a telephone call jolts her out of her complacent existence. The caller, Rose Wilkins, claims to be not only her sister but her identical twin. Consumed with curiosity, Lilah agrees to a secret meeting. Imagine her surprise when she comes face to face with Lady Rose, famed songstress, TV personality, black. For reasons too complicated to relate here, the sisters successfully change places for a while. This implausible situation is rather fun and easier to accept than are the portions of the book dealing with sleazy Hollywood types who took advantage of Rose as she was scratching her way to the top. A fast-moving, glitzy tale for public libraries. Marion Hanscom, SUNY at Binghamton Lib.
