Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend by Katie Finn

My Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars

About this Book:
Gemma just got dumped and is devastated. She finds herself back in the Hamptons for the summer—which puts her at risk of bumping into Hallie, her former best friend that she wronged five years earlier. Do people hold grudges that long? 

When a small case of mistaken identity causes everyone, including Hallie and her dreamy brother Josh, to think she’s someone else, Gemma decides to go along with it.

Gemma's plan is working (she's finding it hard to resist Josh), but she's finding herself in embarrassing situations (how could a bathing suit fall apart like that!?). Is it coincidence or is someone trying to expose her true identity? And how will Josh react if he finds out who she is? 
Katie Finn hits all the right notes in this perfect beginning to a new summer series: A Broken Hearts & Revenge novel.

My Thoughts:
Having loved Second Chance Summer by this author(written under Morgan Matson), I was really excited to hear about this new series. For some reason, these tales of revenge always pull me right in. 
Gemma's character, I really liked overall. I have to say, though, that at times it was a little unbelievable to me that Gemma could really believe that Hallie wouldn't know who she was. Yet, everything seems to be going according to plan.
I really loved Josh's character, in fact he sort of sold the story for me when it hit some rough patches. I was always on the edge of my seat with that relationship, though. How can you start a relationship based completely on a lie? 
The one thing that totally makes me say "you have got to read this book" is that ending! No spoilers from me but all I'm going to say is cliffhanger central! I felt like the story was good not great until right there at that ending. Totally sold the next book for me and now I can't wait to read it!
