Dental hygienist Vanessa has penned a romance novel but when she sends it off to the publisher of her favourite author, Charlotte Lancaster, the manuscript is rejected. So imagine her surprise when she attends a book reading of Charlotte’s latest release, and discovers it’s her story, almost word for word. But with the publisher denying ever seeing Vanessa’s manuscript, she ends up seeking the advice of local lawyer Dave. And then Charlotte’s QC husband, Marcus, enters the fray and he’s just like the suave hero from Vanessa’s novel.
This debut novel by a playwright could easily play out as a screen rom-com, with both humour and heart. A really enjoyable read.
