Maureen Reil was born in Liverpool, England but lives in Lancashire in the North West of Great Britain. She writes her comedy romance novels in a 'chatty' conversational style with a ‘happy-ever-after’ guaranteed to give you that feel-good fiction, despite a few bumps in the road to get there since it is all about the journey and not the destination. When the author is not writing books she enjoys reading books, painting pictures and singing loudly but badly. She qualified in interior design and has a thing for beautiful gardens, not that you would know this judging by the state of her own home. For Maureen Reil is currently working on another project and hopes to bring it to her readers soon. Despite the best efforts of her health, her husband, three sons and a pet dog to disturb her when she is sitting on her ever expanding bottom to stare and sometimes shout at a laptop screen in order to do nothing more than use her over-active imagination to make stuff up which she calls a job, unbelievable, according to some.

It started like any other month, but when passengers on board a train find themselves robbed at gunpoint and over the following weeks, a clothing manufacturer, a jewellery shop and finally a book-store. What do all these places have in common? Besides, a young woman named Kelly Stanford since she was at each incident and became the victim of someone who took great pleasure in stealing her handbags, not to mention her Chick-Lit books.
Just what type of man are we dealing with here? Kelly tries her best to continue as normal, but the crimes have clearly affected her greatly and it all comes to a head when she falls for the new love interest to enter into her life. She also discovers her stolen Chick-Lit novels for sale in the second-hand wicker basket on the counter. Is it possible that the bookseller bloke and the lone gunman are the same person? It would simply be so typical of her bad luck lately, without her late (adoptive) grandmother's brooch which the thief took in the first robbery.

Liked the kooky main character and getting to know her life. Will read more from this author.
DNF - I couldn't finish this book but wanted to comment on why. It was entertaining and I chuckled a few times during the first quarter of this book so I thought it was going to be good. But by 35% through I completely changed my mind. There is basically just one character in this book and she was so annoying that I just had to get away from her! The author went on and on about any foolish thought the character had. There was pages and pages of this with almost no dialogue. It looks like Amazon won't let me post this without rating it so I have to give it a one star but shouldn't give it any.
