Review: Penny in London by Fisher Amelie

My Thoughts

A delightfully fun summer escape
the perfect sizzle and romance for poolside reading.

4 four stars

Synopsis

Penny in LondonYou know how everyone says when one door closes another one opens? At the time, you find this statement obnoxious as all get out because a) you don’t really know what the future holds, it certainly hasn’t been a cakewalk so far, and b) the thought of change is unbearable. You feel like your life is falling apart and everyone around is feeding you clichés like they’re made out of kale or quinoa or whatever the trend health food is right now. You don’t want kale clichés, you want double-chocolate fudge realisms, and you want them now.

You just want things the way they were, but then something happens, a moment, an instant that sets you out on a path toward happiness you never knew could exist, and suddenly you think, huh, I don’t think I want double-chocolate fudge anymore. I think I’m in the mood for this heaping serving of strawberry cheesecake sitting in front of me…with a side of kale. And a pair of split pants, but we won’t get into that right now. Graham Glenn may have tossed her in, but Oliver Finn made her feel again.

My Review

Fisher Amelie’s latest—Penny in London—is a wonderful, lighthearted romance. You’ll read it quick, smile on your face, falling hard and rooting loudly for Penny and Oliver. Sweet and sexy with a contemporary twist, this fast-paced love story about the girl that got away and the boy with more than meets the eye, will have you swooning page after page.

We meet Dallas-born Penelope, who fell in love and moved across an ocean to be with her boyfriend Graham. In London, their life seemed idyllic—more or less, anyway—until the day he broke her heart.

Distraught, the day gets only worse and before long, Penny finds herself turning to Graham’s friend Oliver for help.

Oliver is a playboy, always looking for the next girl to warm his bed. But without options and with only the tatters of her heart in tow, Oliver becomes her life raft.

Penny realizes just how much she’d changed of herself to accommodate Graham. So she begins to pick up the pieces, of her heart and of herself.

“I had changed for Graham. It was time for me to find myself again and hope I was still there.”

The more time she spends with Oliver, however, the more she uncovers, the more she realizes there is so much more to him than she gives him credit for. She also didn’t expect the chemistry that’s undeniably sparked between them.

“You were supposed to be mine. From the beginning, you were supposed to be with me.”

Oliver and Penny’s story gets a lot more complicated before it gets better, however. Oliver hides a heartbreaking past while Penny struggles to process her emotions. She needs to decide the path she wants her life to take, whether she goes all in for the boy she’s fallen hard for, or whether she packs her bags and heads back to Dallas.

“I want you, Penelope. I can count the things I am desperate for on one hand, on a single finger. You. I want you. Only you.”

Their story is sweet and romantic with an edge of adventure and an irresistible twist of fate. Fisher Amelie delivers a great lighthearted love story that many readers (like me) are sure to enjoy!
