Her Perfect Revenge - Anna Mara (2008)

You know what they say about revenge, it's best served cold. Anna Mara's novel Her Perfect Revenge is a fabulous tale of three stubbornly clever characters who find themselves tied up in a shrewd battle of mind games, fraud, secrets, and of course a few lies - and the only rule, there are no rules. Christina, a shy, timid high school girl, was devastated when she was publicly humiliated by the popular, rich boy, Bill Havenwood Jr. This changed her life and she never forgot about it, or the boy who tortured her. It's now 15 years later and Christina is all grown up and working as a photo journalist when she runs into Bill again, literally. Christina puts her plan in motion to get revenge, and little does she know that she has somewhat of an ally in Bill's father, William. The old man is such a hoot, always scheming and manipulating those around him. You will find yourself smiling, and maybe even laughing out loud, at some of the antics these characters get themselves into. Well written with witty, sarcastic dialogue, this is a fun story to get lost in. With great characters, fun banter and a juicy story you can't go wrong with this one. (CF)
