Shortlisted for Choc Lit’s 2019 Search for a Star competition
Perdita Riley is facing the greatest dilemma of her life. Why had she taken Violet Freestone’s advice on how to make herself look more alluring? It led her into the arms of a womaniser. And now Perdita has to deal with a huge setback. Actually, Setback Number One isn’t huge yet, but it won’t be long before it is.
To cheer herself up, Perdita goes shopping, where an extraordinary encounter deposits her, literally, into the lap of Saul Hadley. She would like to stay there, but Setback Number One is going to get in the way.
Will she find a way to deal with what has happened? Can she manage the complications of her growing attraction to Saul?
This hilarious situational romantic comedy will keep you gripped until the very end.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
Perdita is naive, a state explained by her unusual upbringing. Consequently, she struggles with romantic entanglements, the results of which are both hilarious and poignant. She is a likeable character but also frustrating still, this adds to the story’s authenticity. Like all romantic comedy, the humour depends on the female lead’s personality, and Perdita makes a worthy rom-com protagonist.
This is unique and uncharted and will appeal to those looking for a different take on romantic comedy.
Mari Jane Law lives in the UK. She loves books, TV series and films that make her laugh and, through her writing, discovered she could make other people laugh as well. She hopes those who buy or borrow her work have as much fun reading it as she had in writing it!
Love & Pollination is the first in a series of whacky romantic comedy novels she is working on. Her characters appeal so strongly to her that she is unable to let them go – hence the series. She enjoys their humorous behaviour, quirky personalities and sharp, witty dialogue.
She was very pleased to have been shortlisted for Choc Lit’s 2019 Search for a Star competition.
