Upside Down, Inside Out by Monica McInerney
My Rating: Three Stars
This is a bit of a light fluffy kind of a read. No real drama or pathos, a little bit of humor and a little bit of romance.
Eva is an Irish shop assistant who once had dreams of being an artist. She's at a crossroads in her life and takes an impulsive trip to Australia to think over her options. Joseph is a successful English entrepreneur who travels to Australia on a business trip. The two meet by accident, and each gives the other a false impression of who they really are. Twists and turns in revealing their true identities ensue and the "will he/she love the real me" question comes into play.
This was a charming story. A bit predictable, but charming nonetheless.
