Welcome to my spot on the tour for Bad Penny by Michele Gorman, thank you to Rachel of Rachels Random Resources for having me!
Penny’s life is one big, fat secret… and everyone is about to find out
Penny isn’t the girl she used to be, or the woman everyone thinks she is now. At 19, she bolted for London and never looked back. Nobody there knows who she was – not her care home colleagues, her boss, her clients or even her best friend and flat-mate. Auntie Mags is her only connection to her past, and she’s keeping schtum.
Oli can’t believe his luck. Not only is he about to fulfil his dream of really making a difference (assuming he wins his seat in the upcoming general election), now he’s met the perfect woman. Within a few dates he’s sure he wants to spend the rest of his life with Penny, and it’s all he can do not to shout it from the rooftops.
But Penny has hidden her secret by not shouting from any rooftops. In fact, the quieter, the better. So when Oli’s campaign swings into gear and the reporters start circling, it’s not only her future that’s about to come crashing down.
How can she find a happy ending with Oli when her past will definitely ruin his future, yet living with the lie will ruin their future together?
Then Penny’s past gets out of prison, and he’s about to turn up like a… bad penny.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ so far
I’m very nearly finished this one so will update but here are my thoughts so far!
Bad Penny is fun, original and a definite page turner. The characters are interesting and I reaaaallly like that Oli isn’t your typical do-no-wrong-not-a-hair-out-of-place love interest. He mumbles, he stumbles over his words, he gets embarrassed and thats what makes you fall for him whilst Penny is pretty much the same. Something about Penny just hasn’t gelled with me and upon reflection I think it’s because we’re too similar (personality wise) so it hits a bit close to home😅. The story flows well and is nicely paced and I cant wait to finish!
