Publisher's Summary

Tilly has the day from hell when she's sacked from her barristers' chambers in the morning, then finds her husband in bed with her former best friend in the afternoon. She escapes to her mother, Roxy - a sassy solicitor whose outrageous take on men, work, and family life is the despair of her more conventional daughter. Roxy comes up with a radical plan for their future - they'll set up an all-female law firm which will only champion women who have been cheated, put upon, attacked, ripped off, or ruined by the men in their lives.
In court, Tilly finds herself up against Jack Cassidy, the smooth-talking, politically incorrect, legal love god who broke her heart at law school. Jack is fluent in three languages - English, sarcasm, and flirtation...but if he's so loathsome, then why is she committing Acute Lust in the 3rd Degree?When a case lands on the doorstep that threatens to change all their lives, Tilly finds herself dangerously close to taking the law into her own hands.... Will Jack's cunning ways and expertise in emotional break and enter derail her quest for justice? Or will the women take on the boys...and win?

Disturbing

What would have made Courting Trouble better?

I understand where the author was trying to go with the characters and tying things together, but had she chosen a different plot "crime" topic, it may not have been so disturbing and offensive. There was nothing funny about any of it. She tried with a couple characters trying to ham it up, but it just seemed so inappropriate. It was as though it needed to be either a light comedy type book (nothing romantic about this story) or a legal mystery story.


Has Courting Trouble turned you off from other books in this genre?

What genre? I don't think it knew where it belonged!


How could the performance have been better?

Hard to say. Just kind of fell flat.


What character would you cut from Courting Trouble?

I'd rethink Roxy's character or develop Tilly's much more. The main characters needed a lot more oomph.


Any additional comments?

Really should have in the description telling potential purchasers that it involves sexual assault

Curiosity over

The pr for the book says Amal Clooney the inspiration. How? Where? Why? I'll give you that the author has a pithy tongue and the story is clever. After many heavy nonfiction books I felt I needed an entertainment book so I listened. The accents are beguiling for the women but aside from Jack the males voices felt weak at times. I had problems with lack of forgiveness and I had figured out the bad fellow early on and it felt forever for the resolutions to occur. If only all our lives could come full circle
and the good guys forever win. We are left with having to wait for the next book to see if the protagonist, George and Amal, I mean Jack and Matilda give into love?
