My Rating: ★★★

Jenna is known as The Ice Cream Girl. She doesn't mind the name one bit. After all, there are far worse jobs than selling ice creams by the sea. Then one hot summer's day, everything changes and Jenna faces the most difficult decision of her life.
Craig spends as much time as he can at the beach hut in Everdene he rents with a few of his mates. It's the perfect break from his stressful job, and he loves to surf. But one weekend he notices a girl on the beach - for all the wrong reasons.
For Jenna and Craig, it's a chance meeting which could change their lives for ever..

This book is about two different people, with different backgrounds, living on a different path, but still they find something interesting in each others. Jenna met Craig on a bar, just a few second, but she ended up with him in a really unexpected way. I think this book is really suitable for people who like reading but they don't have much time to do it. Quick Reads offers you many titles with a cheap price that you can carry everywhere. The font size is larger than normal novel, but it helps you to read clearly without glasses. I found myself grumbling because the story ended up pretty quick. I need more story about Jenna and Craig. I wanna know how Jenna's life will be after she won the price.

In 2000, she turned her hand to novels, using her story-lining skills to write compelling, multi-protagoinist fiction. The Long Weekend is her tenth novel.
