Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty by Jody Gehrman

Goodreads Description: "Geena can’t wait to spend summer vacation with her two best girls: her friend Amber and her cousin Hero. All three are working at the Triple Shot Betty coffee shop together, but the moment Amber and Hero meet, the claws come out. They hate each other on sight. Geena’s dreams of a girl-bonding summer fl y out the window, and then threaten to disappear completely when a few cute (okay, drop-dead gorgeous) guys come along to woo the Bettys. But all is not what it seems, and in a story of mistaken identities, crazy summer high jinks, and enough romance to make Shakespeare proud, Geena and her friends learn that when Bettys unite, they can take on the most powerful force in their world: a hot guy."

My Review: J'adore this book! This book is the PERFECT summer read, the kind you read in a hammock with a glass of lemonade, or at the beach, or wherever! Geena is hilarious and relatable. Her character is down-to-earth and realistic; she's someone I would want for a friend. Her two best friends, Amber and Hero, are equally good characters. Amber is just plain awesome, all sassy and sarcastic, and her family problems make her more deep and interesting. And reading about childish, girlish Hero was just plain amusing! I love the setting the story is in---a quaint, quiet, wealthy vineyard town somewhere in California. It just seemed so cute and quaint! And the plot was awesome. At first I just thought it was a typical girls-guys-summer-romance-friendship sort of novel, but as the book went on, the plot became more of a wicked, girls-taking-revenge plot---all adventure and humor and fun. I liked the characters (ESPECIALLY Hero's dad, Uncle Leo; that guy was the funniest guy in the whole book, to me!), I liked the setting, and I liked the plot. The book seemed fluffy at first, but it got a little deeper---and a little more fun---all while retaining its lighthearted feeling. This is an awesome book!

Cover: The cover is adorable! It fits the book so well. I love the coffee cup (because the coffee shop where they work is almost like a character itself) and the background is pretty and fun, like the book. It's just a really cute cover.

Overall Grade: A+
