Image of Upside Down Inside Out: A Novel

This is a charming romance with characters who easily garner sympathy as they make discoveries about each other and themselves. The secondary characters are a delightful addition.

Just as Eva was realizing that she and her boyfriend had nothing in common she learns he's only been using her for his own personal gain. She decides to take the two-week holiday she expected to spend with him and visit a friend in Australia instead.

Joseph has done nothing but work the past few years, so when a business trip takes him to Australia, he decides to take a holiday. Joseph and Eva are attracted to one another, but both are using fake personas, Eva at the instigation of her friend and Joe because of a mistake. When the holiday comes to an end, will they be able to undo this tangled web of false identities? (Ballantine, Jul., 432 pp., $14.00)
