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.

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.

  • Whine before Wine; An Aussie Mumma’s ritual.

    4 year old whines, Mumma has a wine. Mumma is calmer, 4 year old can whine all she likes.

  • Love in the club. I found my hubby just before I turned 20 in a night club in Brisbane. I just had a feeling about him the night we met. 25 years on and we have been apart 12 weeks at the most over that whole time. He is my moon and stars.

  • A love less ordinary because there is nothing ordinary about us or our story.

  • It would be “The Bumpy Road of Life”. Life is never straight forward & easy and hurdles are placed in our way along the road of life.

  • The stranger next door – We sleep in separate bedrooms because he sleeps early, I sleep late. He wake up early and I wake up late.

  • Romance? What’s that? My husband is not romantic at all!

  • “What took me so long!” Why I wasted so much time and lost soooo much trying to figure my life out!

  • “I shaved my legs for this?” ????

  • As I have lost and actually given up the plot of finding love

  • Never say never – I met my partner when i thought I was going to be single for the rest of my life. We now have a gorgeous family and love having special family time.

  • Turned upside down

    1 year ago i qas diagnosed with cancer it turned my what felt like perfect life upside down. I have a nearly 3yr old son a loving partner and im every day fighting to see another day with them

  • The overwhelmed housewife – because being a mum is a big job

  • Quick March Love because I met my husband while we were both in the military and we have been together since we met and now have two kids.

  • My book would be called “Don’t waste your time on Adam”. I wish I’d read it earlier and saved years of fights and tears over someone who wasn’t my one. Especially because after Adam came my soul mate and I couldn’t be happier.

  • I’m Still in Denial! happily married, kids and a career but we were so young! I look back and think should I have a parallel life where I made more mature decisions later. I guess the operative word is ‘in’. We are still going.
