Extended Description

Lola Hussey, 24 years old, no boyfriend, still living with her mum on a London housing estate and stuck in a going nowhere job in a third rate Private Investigation Agency. Life had to get better surely? When Derek Lewis, rich Australian playboy, is found dead after falling from the roof of his office in salacious circumstances, Lola's opportunity to flex her investigative muscles had begun. 

But it wasn't only Lola's professional career that was about to take off. Little did she know it, her love life was too. 

Between her new boss, Julian, who was an uptight Adonis, and Joe the office Romeo, Lola was having a hard time to keep her professional integrity intact and her sassy comments to herself. Still, a job was a job, and if it involved working with two handsome men then who else would be up for the challenge? 




About Author:
A long time native of London I now live and work in Singapore with my zoo of pets. Some would say I ran away from high tax and gloomy weather. I would say their powers of deduction might well be accurate. But you know low tax, low crime and hot weather every day can make a woman yearn for the edginess and excitement of London enough to bring it to life in the written word.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder and the imagination flourish.

Betty Byers is not just my pen name but was my mum’s name and I use it in tribute and memory to a woman who gave me my love of books.

Book Review:
This is a very nice read. It is well written with a main character that you can not help but to get attached to. The characters are well developed and fill greatly into the story line. The vivid details allows the reader to play the movie in their head. There is an expected twist at the end that could not have been foreseen. The book is a mixture of  romance and detective making it the ultimate page turner. This is the first book written by Ms. Byers and hopefully not the last. 

I highly recommend this book.
