Description of this Book

Another hilarious novel from this internationally published writer, about tangled relationships, misunderstandings and truculent toddlers. Charlotte Fforbes has never been short of boyfriends, but has never been emotionally involved with any of them. So what is this strange feeling she suddenly experiences for her boss, Patrick King? She knows he is married, but then that relationship seems as smooth as a sea in a storm. She knows she should stay well away, but what's a girl to do . . . certainly not something as crazy as volunteer to act as nanny on the King's forthcoming trip to Italy. Especially not when she has no idea about children and there will be several others to look after, not to mention several other turbulent marriages readying for explosion.

Author's Bio

Catherine Robertson, writer of bestselling chick lit novels, was born in Wellington and attended Victoria University of Wellington. She left New Zealand for a while to live in San Francisco and Buckinghamshire, but is now back home. She lives in a house by the sea with her husband who sheds bicycle bits, a tan bitzer dog who sheds hair, a cat who sheds bits of whatever it's just eaten, and two sons who shed all of the above. Her 'real job' is owning and running a marketing consultancy with her husband. Her debut novel, The Sweet Second Life of Darrell Kincaid, hit the New Zealand bestseller list immediately, making its way to number one. She quickly followed up with The Not So Perfect Life of Mo Lawrence. The third volume of her trilogy is called The Misplaced Affections of Charlotte Fforbes. Hailed as 'a new national treasure', Catherine was a featured author at the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair. Two of her books have been published in Germany and her first has also been published in Italy. Kerre Woodham wrote of The Sweet Second Life of Darrell: 'This is the novel I wish I had written - a warm, laugh-out-loud, funny romantic comedy. Fans of Marion Keyes, who is the benchmark for clever, witty chick lit, will love this ... Robertson is a refreshing new writer in the chick lit genre and deserves to be an international success. I just wish I'd written it.'Reviewing the follow-up novel, The Not So Perfect Life of Mo Lawrence, Woodham declared: 'An earthy, authentic tale of love and loss, Robertson has built on her reputation as a writer of great romantic comedy.' The Dominion Post Weekend heralded it as 'Chick Lit meets Lake Wobegon - that is, the men are good-looking and the women are strong' while the Otago Daily Times described Robertson's writing as 'Quriky, funny and unafraid.'
