Plot Twist, by Bethany Turner

Olivia Ross, writer of greeting card sentiments, sits in a busy Los Angeles coffee shop trying to work on her passion project–a screenplay.

She is rescued from a relentless flirter by Sexy Irish Guy, on his way to an audition and later identified as swoonworthy actor Hamish MacDougal. Oh wait… Hamish is Scottish, not Irish. Olivia is apparently not well versed in accents.

Anyway, ‘supporting characters’ like Olivia don’t fall in love with leading men. …. right?

Olivia is a writer. She is also as insecure, goofy, scatterbrained, and awkward as you can imagine.

Yeah, I immediately related to her.

And Turner could not have come up with a more perfect title than Plot Twist. Seriously, the switchback roads up the Alps have fewer twists and turns than this book… partly thanks to Olivia’s best friend Fiona, who appears to live a charmed life. I won’t even try to tell you the gist of the story, only that I couldn’t put my Kindle down until I’d finished this Great Weekend Read.

Your turn:

    My day job is keeping the house clean and cooking supper, you know–housewife! My hobby is sewing. I am working on patriotic quilts for veterans families at the Methodist hospital, and making memory pillows for my sister-in-laws daughters and grandkids.
