“I had entered a world that no one with an evolved sense of joie de vivre would touch with a barge pole. It’s called joining the property market and it sh*ts on war for stress. “ Tyne O’Connell©
From the Author of Sex Lies and Litigation

Evelyn Hornton, the criminal barrister with a penchant for Mulberry Handbags, Louboutin shoes and unzipped-oneliners is back. Having successfully found her place as a barrister at Pump Court, Evelyn’s bought a London loft conversion sans the conversion in Clerkenwell and discovered a whole new line of accessories including a team of Irish builders.

More worrying though, she’s acquired a stalker and her avuncular builder, Paddy persuades her to hire his nephew Rory - private detective to the stars and criminally good looking – to protect her.
Evelyn finds herself immersed in an Irish family odyssey but despite all this Evelyn is majorly crushing on Matt her advising solicitor. Unfortunately her stalker, Rory and her Irish builders have other ideas….Evelyn’s about to find out that sometimes the solution is so much worse than the problem…
