Kaitlyn is your average 25 year old making her way through college. Studying, spending time with her BFF and roommate Hailey and crushing on her cutie classmate Cole, everything is going great for her. That is, until Marge happened....... Marge is the older woman who lives in the apartment below Kaitlyn and Hailey. Both girls have become very fond on Marge and spend time looking after her since she has no family close by. Everything is moving along smoothly until Marge decides that she is done with the single life and needs to find herself a man. Love knows no age, right? Anyway ... Marge's foray into the on-line dating world doesn't go quite as planned and its now up to Kaitlyn and Hailey to fix the mess that Marge has left in her wake. Along the way there is adventure, mystery, a villain, some seriously hilarious moments and even a few love connections.
Like I said Twisted Luck was really fun to read. The characters were so full of personality and each had their own quirkiness. Marge is the type of woman that you can't help but love yet at the same time cringe whenever she opens her mouth. With absolutely no filter and spending way too much time watching reality t.v, she has a knack for coming up with the most bizarre one-liners. Kaitlyn and Hailey may come across as immature at times but it is more charming that annoying. The side story between Hailey and Marge's grandson Matt was also a nice addition and helped round out the storyline. I also loved that you get varying POVs from several of the characters which was great and definielty helped to form a connection with each.
All in all, Twisted Luck was a really good, well written debut novel and I can't wait to read more from Julie in the future :)
Kaityln is a shy twenty-five year old college student that has a slight crush on Cole, a guy that does not lack attention from other women on campus. She doesn't know that much about him really but when they do talk in math class they are friendly. There have been times when he seems to enjoy her company but she gets flustered around him. When they finally do spend time together outside of school it goes great until it doesn't....
Hailey is Kaitlyn's room at and best friend. They have the downstairs neighbor named Marge that is a little old lady with some feistiness. She is not your typical baking and knitting type of Grandma and she doesn't have family close so they all turn out to be great friends. The girls help her with internet dating and watch reality shows together....she is pretty much a 20 something in a 70 year old body.
When Kaityln gets the call that Marge is missing she is of course worried. She and Hailey felt bad that they haven't noticed that she has been gone for a few days but when her Grandson couldn't get ahold of her for those few days he made a missing persons report. What Hailey did not expect was that when she finally met Marge's grandson that things would get interesting to say the least.
Cole has to go out of town but when the search continues he decides to meet up with all of them to find Marge and this takes them on an adventure and also a way to get to know Kaitlyn even more. To Kaitlyn, Cole is mysterious, she knows he is sweet and sexy as hell but other than that she doesn't know much. As they go on this crazy ride she will get deeper into what Cole is hiding and who he really is. The four of them go through so many laughs, sadness and even have to deal a creeper.
I haven't laughed so much in a book in a long time. Kaitlyn reminds me of myself in a lot of ways, I don't think I am as funny but her inner thoughts are some of the same. The reference to music and TV were awesome and I understood all of them. This is a lighter read and I loved it. Just hilarious, sweet and with some mystery. Can't wait for the next one!
I also catch a few glimpses of her "profile" where, under hobbies, she listed tweaking, dropping it like it's hot, and the horizontal mambo. This woman is certifiably insane. I might have to sabotage her cable or something.
When Bruno Mars started singing about hot gorilla sex I may have gotten a little turned on and squirmy in my seat.
"Its all fun and games until you try to stage an intervention."
