If you're looking for a quick, fun summer read then Jenny Sparrow Knows the Future is the book for you. I raced through it in a single day and am already on the lookout for more Melissa Pimentel novels!
The plot of Jenny Sparrow is a classic one.. girl wakes up in Vegas married to the wrong guy. Or is he the wrong guy? Jenny is an avid list maker. Obsessed by a life plan she made when she was thirteen she's one proposal away from hitting her next target - get married at thirty one. Suddenly Jenny finds herself in a situation she didn't envisage, With two men now in her life Jenny must choose between sticking to her plan or taking a chance on the unknown.
Jenny Sparrow is cosy chick-lit at it's best. Give or take a few little twists you know where the story is headed, so you can curl up and enjoy the ride. The descriptions of the settings, London in particular, are really well done and bring the story to life. I'm very interested to know whether the restaurants and bars Jenny and Jackson visited actually exist!
Christopher and Jackson are two very different men, but equally loveable, and whilst I knew who I wanted Jenny to end up with I didn't want the other guy to get hurt. Jenny's best friend Isla is a whirlwind deserving of a novel of her own. Crazy and reckless, yet talented and intelligent, she's the sort of friend everyone wishes they had in their lives.
Jenny herself is a woman who has been damaged by her past. As the story progresses we learn more about her upbringing, and discover just why it is that she's so obsessed with order and control. As she is pushed further out of her comfort zone we see a braver side of her character come out, and as a result she changes for the better.
Full of humour and heart Jenny Sparrow Knows the Future a quirky, witty modern romance.
