Funny, charming and captivating, with a plot within a plot, and a girl who is looking for love in all the wrong places.

‘I loved it! It’s got a kind of Bridget Jones feel and such a page turner. Great fun but with such beautiful heart. I’ve already cast the film/series in my head!’ Rebecca GibneyVanessa Rooney is a thirty-something dental hygienist who finds herself a single mum with a hole in her heart where her husband had been.
Somehow she finds the courage to fulfil her childhood dream of writing a romance novel but soon discovers that her novel has been plagiarised by her idol, celebrity author Charlotte Lancaster.Vanessa reluctantly sues Charlotte with the help of suburban solicitor Dave Rendall, who’s nursing some unfulfilled dreams of his own. When gun QC Marcus Stafford agrees to join their legal team, Vanessa feels like her perfect man has stepped right out of the pages of her book and into her life.As all hell breaks loose publicly and privately, Vanessa confronts a painful past and realises what Dave already knew – that she’s an intelligent, funny, amazing woman and Marcus Stafford is, well, a tosspot.

Vanessa finally understands that what she wanted wasn’t what she needed, but has this realisation come too late?

  • All the boys my parents hated – My parents have never liked the partners I have chosen, including my current one.



  • “The Wrong Way to Marry the Right Man!” After 30 years together, we are clearly meant to be, but the beginning was just so full of dramas, with fainting mothers, visa problems, meddling vicars and a dog that hated him!



  • Third Time Lucky – as I’ve been engaged twice, so hoping the 3rd will go the distance



  • “Trust Fate” – i tried to over engineer finding the right partner including writing a list of necessary attributes and joining the right clubs/activities…then when least expected I found love close to home.



  • The hopeless romantic as i am forever unlucky in love and always fall for people who are not good for me



  • She said what? Even I’m surprised what comes out of my mouth sometimes!



  • “The Best is still Coming!” With lots to look forward to. My hubby and I are excited to see what the future will hold! Hoping it will be great!



  • Lifes a box of chocolates
    Because atm it feels like life keeps throwing all the shitty flavours out of a box of roses at me and im just sitting there waiting for the turkish delight to hit me in the face



  • Gone with the wind



  • “Don’t cry for me.” I had plenty of friends feeling sorry for me for years when they had “steady” boyfriends and I never dated. I met my love before any of them because I knew exactly what I wanted and waited until I found him!



  • Disappointed! I really don’t need to elaborate.



  • “The Inspirational Colours of my Life; The Colours of You” because I’ve had a coloured past which has inspired others and everyone I’ve met has coloured my life with their different personalities, and I suspect the future person I meet for romance will have a multitude of inspirational colours too!



  • me and my man….. its us to a tee



  • Crazy in life and love- a story about a couple from opposite sides of the world that come together and build a life full of craziness,love and kids
