I was uber lucky to score myself an ARC of Unforgettable You.
I absolutely loved Amy's story (this author's debut) in Irrepressible You, and this book is about Jo, Amy's older sister. Interestingly, this book predates Irrepressible You, so technically, it's the first of a series of three books, with the third to be released later this year. I think I know who Book 3 is going to be about. ;)
Georgina Penney has a style of writing that is full of warmth and wit and sass. I am a huge fan of her language and her characters and her all-round author awesome-ness.
Amy and Jo Blaine are inseparable sisters, yet they're about as far apart in personalities as you could find. Amy in Irrepressible You is a gorgeous retro 50s-dressing hairdresser/barber; and her sister Jo is a soccer-loving tom-boy engineer, working fly-in, fly-out in the male domain of an oil rig in Mauritiana.
This story is about Stephen Hardy (from the Evangeline's Rest winery that gets a mention in Irrepressible You), and Jo. As you might expect, these two have history and it's this that creates the early conflict... which is then built through the book as issues relating to Jo and Amy's treatment at the hands of their parents as young girls, surfaces. Amy thinks Stephen will be disgusted at her 'psycho' family history, and concocts lies to shield him from the truth.
Of course, a Georgina Penney hero is always going to be bigger and better than that!
That's all I'll say on plot. I'm not much of a plot reviewer. What I love is when a book grabs me in that spot just behind my belly button and pulls and tugs and prods me, so that I can't put the book down.
I love this book. I loved the first (technically second) one too. I am a huge fan for life.
One more word. Man, does Ms Penney know how to write brilliant *fans self* sex. What these two get up to in a park watching Shakespeare is just mind-blowing.
