Revenge, Ice Cream, and Other Things Best Served Cold

Revenge, Ice Cream, and Other Things Best Served Cold by Katie Finn is book two in the Broken Hearts and Revenge series.  Gemma has sworn to get revenge on Hallie but Hallie is proving to be harder to beat than she originally thought.   To make things even more challenging, Teddy (her ex-boyfriend who is currently dating Hallie) is in town and Gemma’s long time crush Ford is visiting his father.  As Gemma and Hallie continue to spar (often in outlandish and devious ways), Gemma finds her summer being much more interesting than a quiet time lounging on the beach.

I love this series!  First of all, Finn’s titles are so witty and whimsical.  They perfectly capture the plot and the playful nature of the story.  The characters are entertaining and believable.  I love how hard Gemma tries to correct the mistakes of her past even when she knows it is next to impossible.  You get lost in the chaos of the story and filled with a sense of friendship and new love.  This is an absolutely perfect summer read.
