Finished Revenge, Ice Cream and Other Things Best Served Cold by Katie Finn. I received a copy for review from the publisher.
Summary (from Amazon):
“After the humiliating events on the 4th of July, Gemma’s trying to grapple with the fact that Hallie knew her true identity all summer, and that she was the one who stole Teddy from her.
Gemma vows revenge, but things immediately get more complicated than she planned. Her dad forces her to get a job, and the only one she can find involves scooping ice cream all day. Ford, Gemma’s longtime crush, has arrived in the Hamptons, and is cuter than ever. Josh is refusing to speak to her after finding out she lied to him. And to top it all off, Teddy is back in the picture, and closer to home than Gemma would like.
Gemma and Hallie find themselves locked in an escalating revenge cycle involving everything from strawberry syrup to stolen identities. But just when Gemma thinks she has the upper hand, the biggest bombshell of all is dropped. And it’s one that threatens to change her life forever.”
I am so in love with this series, I can’t even tell you. This is the second book in a trilogy and I am both desperate to know what comes next and very sad at the thought that there’s only one more.
At the end of the first book, we received a bit of game-changing information, and that completely changed the way this book went. I love books that can completely change everything but in retrospect, you’re like, “OF COURSE!” That happens a few times in this one, too.
The best part is the fact that in the first book, I was completely rooting for Gemma and Josh. In this book, we meet Ford. (And, like Gemma, I am now much more interested in Ford than I was in Josh.)
This is the kind of book that is just perfect for vacation reading or on days when you wish you were on vacation.
