Upside down inside out: A Novelby Monica McInerney
Synopses & Reviews
“Sparkling . . . it’s all systems go for a wonderful romance . . . a charming story told with large doses of love and humour.”
–The Australian Women’s Weekly
Eva Kennedy is in a rut. After seven years of working at her uncle’s Dublin delicatessen, her artistic aspirations have slipped by the wayside and her latest relationship has fizzled. Whatever happened to the Eva who was going to be someone? Hoping to shake things up and find inspiration, Eva takes a break and ventures to Melbourne, Australia, to visit her old friend Lainey, who, for fun, gives her an exciting new identity. Eva is now exotic and adventurous and . . . not herself.
Joseph Wheeler is a successful London designer. Unfortunately his firm is thriving at such a high level that he doesn’t have time to actually design anymore. And his love life is nonexistent.
In Australia on business, Joseph meets Eva, and the sparks fly–even as Eva is stuck pretending to be someone she’s not. Little does she know that Joseph has some secrets of his own. . . .
When what starts as a holiday fling quickly blossoms into something more, Joseph and Eva discover that romance can turn life upside down and inside out at the bottom of the world.
“The perfect holiday romp . . . A fresh and fun read that will win the attention of its readers for its warm and bubbly tone.”
“There is a huge ‘aaahh’ factor in [Upside Down Inside Out].”
“Refreshing . . . tongue-in-cheek fun.”
–The Sun-Herald (Australia)
When Eva and Joseph meet while on vacation in Australia, they each keep secrets from the other, unaware that they will discover something about each other and themselves during a supposed holiday fling.
