Olivia doesn't believe in happy families. She can't trust men to be reliable, so she'd rather manage without one.

Marine biologist Walter is losing his daughter. He longs for a second chance to prove he can be a reliable dad.

When Olivia discovers she's pregnant by her douchebag ex, Walter finally sees a way to be more than just a friend-with-benefits to her.

But how can he persuade the most independent woman he's ever met to accept his help, let alone his heart?

Girl In Trouble is a standalone novel in the award nominated Smart Girls series. If you like warm, witty, closed door romance, you'll love this contemporary romantic comedy. Buy Girl In Trouble and have a good laugh today.

"If the song "Miss Independent" was a book, it would be Girl In Trouble" Jocelyn on Twitter

"If you're going on holiday, or a long train journey, you will devour this." Sandra Danby's blog (author and book blogger)

"The characters are what makes it - they keep you turning the pages as you're so invested in what might happen to them." Jo on Amazon

"There was a real punch of emotional depth - one minute I'd be grinning at what the characters were saying or doing and the next I was fighting tears. Highly recommended." KT on Amazon
