Duets books are two shorter stories in one book. They are great for a night of reading or a day at the beach. Lighthearted and funny. Very enjoyable reading.
Author Darlene Gardner pens a two part treat about the one who got away in ONCE SMITTEN/TWICE SHY. Gardner's characteristic flair for amusing characters and outrageous situations absolutely sparkles. Indeed, ONCE SMITTEN/TWICE SHY demonstrates Gardner's witty writing skill at its playful best.
In ONCE SMITTEN, Zoe O'Neall has carried the torch for years for Jack Carter, a fellow student in college. His jock status took him far out of her league, but she has never forgotten the one who got away. So when a casual remark about that very topic brings friends Zoe, Amy and Matt together in the OWGA club, Zoe soon finds herself looking up her old crush. The results are equally outrageous and exciting!
In TWICE SHY, Amy Donnatelli and Matt Burke each make up one who got away, hoping to top the other's story. After all, neither wants to admit to their secret admiration for each other. Unfortunately, their stories soon snowball into ridiculous hilarity that only the reader can appreciate!
This is a great summer read! I love to take these "Duet" books to the beach or when I go anywhere on vacation.
