Caitlin (Making a Splash #2) by Jade Parker

Title: Caitlin (Making a Splash #2)
Author: Jade Parker
ISBN: 9780545045414
Publisher: Point
Page #: 245
Source: From my Library

"Caitlin's Summer to-do List
1. Lifeguard job at Tsunami, the water park's most popular pool. Keep the rowdy guys in line.

2. Avoid Michael Romeo. So what if he's cute and makes me laugh?

3. Solve the Whitney mystery - what's going on there?

4. Buy new bathing suit!

5. Stop thinking about Michael Romeo!!"
First Lines:

"It was disgusting. My brother kissing my best friend. Not that they were kissing right that minute - because Sean was driving."

I read the first book sometime last week and loved it enough that I searched out the second book (not that I had to search hard, I knew we had it at my library). You can check out that review first because I can't promise no spoilers - the stories directly flow into each other.

Can I just say, though, that these cute, fun stories set at a very cool sounding pool makes me severely jealous? I would love to spend the summer at a pool. Any pool, really. Alas.

Anyway, this story is a ton of fun. There's a whole new level of drama. These books have a pretty set formula, but it's nice and safe - and very well recieved by me :). Can I reiterate how fast these books are?! They are perfect for a summer read.

I will be picking up the third (and final) one of these books as soon as I can get my hands on it. Hopefully before summer is over because this is the time for them. I absolutely recommend that you all get your hands on them while you can! If I say fun again, I might explode... but SO FUN!

As I said in the other review, Jade Parker is a pen name for Rachel Hawthorne. So check out more of her books. I've read a few and loved them.

Oh, and for the record... Barnesandnoble.com screwed up this summary as well. They listed the leading guy as Jason... not Michael Romeo. Do you think there was a name change before they published? Actually, that doesn't make sense because the whole book revolves around the name. Weird. And unfortunate.
Other Blog Reviews:

I saw reviews for the other two books, but I couldn't find one for this one. At least not in blogs. Go figure. So... you should all read and review it! Be in the minority and all that. :)
