From bestselling romantic comedy author Barbara Valentin comes the latest laughter-filled Assignment: Romance novel...
When Aubrey Thomas, a phobic travel writer, must chose between jumping to what she considerers certain death from a skydiving static line or sinking even deeper into debt in the unemployment line, she scrambles to find someone—anyone!—who can help her overcome her debilitating fear of heights. Enter John Trelawney, a charming window washer who thinks nothing of dangling by a cable fifty stories up and claims he can cure her. Everything about John makes Aubrey nervous... including the way her heart kicks into overdrive whenever he's around. But, at the end of her rope, she takes him up on his offer. Can he really help her get over her fear of heights? Or will Aubrey find herself free falling...possibly even in love with him?

What critics are saying about Barbara Valentin's books:
"A lighthearted and endearing blend of comedy, drama, and romance. Quick-moving and thoroughly delightful."
—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"False Start was such a wonderful romantic comedy and even though there isn't an ounce of steam in it. I completely loved it! 5 stars!"
—Boundless Book Reviews
"I had a hard time putting (Help Wanted) down. That’s probably why I had no trouble reading it in two days! I’ll also stubbornly admit that I got a little teary-eyed towards the end, and I absolutely loved the ending. It was the perfect finish and one of my favorite endings, hands down."
—Chick Lit Central

A fun romance you won’t be able to put down. It keeps you entertained and guessing until the end if she will say I do.
I'm not normally a romance reader, however, I found this book captivating! From the beginning of Aubreys story and her past history, to her meeting John and his offer to help her overcome her fears, my interest was captured. I truly enjoyed their exploits and would heartily recommend this read!
