Tess Taylor is gearing up to her BIG day. She is on a mission to create a wedding to remember – and nothing is going to get in her way. That is, until a summons arrives completely out of the blue for jury service. With a million jobs still to do, the timing couldn’t be worse. Meanwhile Kate King, celebrity socialite, is going through a very public divorce with billionaire Damien King. As if the heartache wasn’t enough to deal with, Kate now has to face a high-profile court case as she goes head to head with her ex-husband. On the surface, the two women couldn’t be more different, but their two worlds collide as the courtroom drama unfolds. Tess realises that the fate of another person lays in her hands just as time out of her normal routine makes her question if she’s making the right decisions for her own life. Lessons in love and friendship await both of them …


Heartwarming, romantic, and laugh-out-loud funny.

This story is told from two different perspectives. One is that of Tess, an energetic young woman in the throes of planning her dream wedding to the older, slightly dull, Bernard. And the other is Kate, a beautiful celebrity who finds herself in a malicious legal battle with her estranged, billionaire ex-husband. Although these women come from completely different backgrounds and lead completely different lifestyles it isn’t long before their paths intersect and their lives become entwined.

The writing is flawless. The characterization is spot on. The two heroines are strong, determined, motivated, and likeable. The supporting characters are varied, colourful, and quirky. And Will, well Will is the perfect man, tall, dark, handsome, and caring.

This is an intriguing story brimming with humour, romance, mystery, friendship, and family. It made me laugh, it made me smile, and it made me want more!

If you are a fan of rom coms or chick-lit, this book is definitely for you.

This book is due to be published on October 6, 2016.
