Jess Lea chose the perfect title for her newest novel. Looking for Trouble is exactly what the two main characters in this story are doing, and on the few occasions where they are not looking for trouble, it seems to find them anyway.
This book has it all. We have a budding romance between two very different people (George and Nancy) who seem to fall for each other in spite of themselves. There is a wacked-out by-election for a local Melbourne seat in Parliament. The story has mystery, intrigue and murder connected with this election. There is also an overabundance of bad guys, mostly involving the election. Some are zany, some are just misunderstood, but a few are quite sinister and dangerous.
I read this book almost nonstop for several reasons. I really wanted to see how this crazy election would turn out. It was as wild as some of our U.S. elections. The murder mystery had more twists and turns than a roller coaster ride with several side mysteries happening within it. And I had to read and see if George and Nancy would ever figure out they were falling in love…and admit it when they did.
To say that I thoroughly enjoyed this novel would be an understatement. I loved every page of this book, and I can’t wait to read more from this author.
I received an ARC from Ylva Publishing for an honest review.
