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?
