Summary (from Goodreads):
“WEATHER ALERT: SEVERE STORMS AHEAD
Gemma and Hallie’s world has come to a screeching halt. Their parents are engaged, which makes them step-sisters. Nothing in the world could possibly be worse for Gemma and Hallie–they won’t let it happen. Even if it means putting their own feud aside to separate their parents.
Events quickly escalate as a hurricane rips through the Hamptons leaving everyone (including Gemma’s two exes, her current crush, best friend, and her nemesis) bottled up in one house. One big, miserable group of exes and enemies together allow secrets to unfold and plans to be plotted. The calm before this storm definitely doesn’t exist.
Katie Finn pulls out all the stops for this fast-paced, dramatic conclusion in the Broken Hearts and Revenge series, Hearts, Fingers, and Other Things to Cross.”
I was so in love with this series, and seriously could not wait for this final installment. With everything that happened in the first two books, I had no idea how they could be topped in this one. Turns out that the only thing Gemma and Hallie are better at than scheming against each other is scheming against other people. In this case, they want to “reverse Parent trap” their folks and get them to split up again. (Shouldn’t be too hard; Gemma, especially, has excellent experience at this.)
As you probably know, Katie Finn is the pen name for Morgan Matson* and while this series is not as emotionally intense as her other YA novels, it is incredibly fun and juicy. (Absolutely ideal for summer and the beach.)
I’m not sure if Katie Finn has any more books coming, but I certainly hope so. They’re absolutely delightful and don’t give me crying hangovers. (I’m still going to need more Morgan Matson, though.)
