Chronic overachiever Prudence Barnett is always quick to cast judgment on the lazy, rude, and arrogant residents of her coastal town. Her dreams of karmic justice are fulfilled when, after a night out with her friends, she wakes up with the sudden ability to cast instant karma on those around her.
Ultimately, Marissa Meyer's Instant Karma is a delightful book that will have you longing for the beach — or, at least, a giant bowl of popcorn and the animal rescue classic Dolphin Tale. Quint and Pru's relationship is a fun, quirky enemies-to-love story that definitely leaves the reader satisfied.
An interesting take on the enemies to lovers trope, Marissa Meyer’s foray into contemporary doesn’t disappoint! ... What really hit it for me is that the basic premise of the story is centred around eco-tourism ... If you’re looking for a book that is a little lighter on the sad, but big on the enemies to lovers, and is full of Beatles song references, this is definitely the book for you.
[Meyer] turns a rom-com trope—uptight protagonist meets free spirit and learns to have fun—into an interesting meditation on judgment and justice. Readers who push through the slow beginning will be rewarded with a book that offers a real sense of place.
