Book Tour: The Decoy Girlfriend by Lillie Vale | Spotlight

Welcome to my stop on the TBR and Beyond Tours Book Tour for The Decoy Girlfriend by Lillie Vale! This sounds really good and my type of RomCom: fake-dating, look-alike/doppelgänger, bookish main character (a writer)!

I’m hoping to pick it up soon though, because it really does sound addictive and good! Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see the tour schedule for other content creators links.
