This is a really funny and very entertaining book with lots going on. Louise Marley is a really wonderful writer.
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.
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!!)
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.

If I'm being truly honest too, it's FAIRYTALE in capitals, it's bordering Disney.
I found it a bit difficult in places to actually believe this book, some parts are very far-fetched others needing a kick up the arse. However, its overall a good book. It has a unique plot with surprise and shock elements, and loads of little twists and turns. It packs a lot into it. It's well written and has you wanting to know the outcome.
The characters are all well documented from the beginning so you get to relate to each one individually. The heroine Shelby grated on me slightly, she seemed like a scatter brain and I wanted to reach into the pages and shake her at times.
As I've stated earlier its a good book, and if you like FAIRYTALE romance then you're sure as hell will love this.
