Why do Fools Fall in Love? is the second book written by Louise Marley.

Shelby is a WPC in the Tactical Firearms Team (TFT) for the Police. A bad experience one Halloween's evening and suddenly she is finding herself looking for work! Shelby contacts her ex boss who she worked with when in CID, John Ivar who now runs a Security Agency supplying guards for factory premises, Bouncers for nightclubs and private parties, Drivers and Minder's. None of this really appealed to her, but desperate time calls for desperate measures so she take the job of being a `Minder' for Movie Star and Heart throb Luke McFadden whilst he is on a three-week film location in the beautiful historical city of Bath.

Shelby is a black belt in Judo and Karate, trained to protect people from assassins, kidnappers and therefore can handle a few middle-aged housewives, How hard can it really be? How much trouble can one Actor really get into?

This is the first book I have read of Louise Marley's and therefore has no pre conceptions of what to expect. It's a really fun and easy read. Shelby is a very mixed up character, clearly desperate to be loved and therefore often attracted to the wrong men very quickly! There are many funny elements throughout the book and Shelby is often referred to `Calamity Jane' even though she is always trying to do the right thing at the time. `She's supposed to be keeping him out of trouble!'

Great connections with the other leading characters of the book, as the story develops little twists and turns make you understand each person a little bit more and why they act the way they do. It is not until the end do you really make up your mind as to who is a good person and who isn't!!

Thank you so much Louise for sending me a copy of this to review. I really enjoyed this book and loved your writing style and will certainly be looking out for your other books.

Really enjoyed this book, although I did work out the Stalker, it had enough twists and turns to keep me enthralled all day. Couldn't put it down and a great read! I highly recommend the book and would buy another one of hers with no qualms, she's a great writer!

Shelby's character is a little complex. Constantly striving to be professional and detached, she often finds herself losing her composure and, as the story goes on, you see Shelby's desire to be loved. Relationships between the actors and crew are delightfully tangled and their history gives real depth to the plot, as does the development of some of these characters. The writing flows easily and carries you along for a fun ride.

Although many readers may find parts of the storyline predictable, there are some genuine surprises and twists that make the book a compelling read. Shelby and Luke's relationship is also a nice element; however, a little more detail would have enhanced it somewhat. Great entertainment and definitely worth a read.

I was guided to purchase this book by its high listing in the kindle chart and thought at 77p it was hardly a fortune to lose if it was bad.

BUT it wasn't bad, it was a fabulous read! I am amazed this is only the author's second novel. It was so well mapped out and planned. The story was entertaining and quirky and Shelby was a real gutsy girl (if a little hot tempered) and I found I was routing for her by the end of the first half of the book.

There was a great suspense towards the end of the book and I found myself rapidly reading to see what happened. (I wont spoil it by telling you what happens as I find that so annoying when folk do that)

But 'invest' in this author, she is a very talented lady and I cant wait to read Smoke Gets in Your Eyes. (which I now realise I should have read first! Doh!!)

Happy Reading.
