Fifty Shades Of Roxie Brown by Lynda Renham Roxie Brown loves erotica and her friend, Sylvie, loves crime … novels of course. On a girls’ night out they meet The Great Zehilda, the tea leaf reader, and suddenly Roxie’s Fifty Shades fantasies about her millionaire boss, Ark Morgan, look about to become a reality. But then she looks through the telescope and her life is turned upside down. Roxie and Sylvie, with help from Sylvie’s flatmate, Felix, set out to crack the case. Can Ark Morgan save her or is he the man she should be running from? Then enter Sam Lockwood and her heart is shot with another arrow. Come with Roxie Brown on her hilarious crime-busting romantic adventure and discover if the love of her life is the man of her dreams or if the man she loves is her worst nightmare.
Roxie Brown is a chambermaid, working for a large hotel. She is something of a dreamer and has cast her boss, Ark Morgan, into the role of her very own Christian Grey. Unfortunately she is stuck with Arsenal fan and all-time loser, Darren.
But everything changes when Roxie is witness to a murder in a flat opposite her own. She enlists her two friends, Sylvie and Felix, to help her find the murderer. Add to the mix two handsome men: the aforementioned Ark Morgan and his business rival Sam Lockwood (both of whom end up as suspects) and the book sets off on a fast-paced journey of misunderstandings and drama.
Roxie, Sylvie and Felix are great characters, full of warmth and fun. Their dialogue is quick-witted and natural, leading to lots of humourous moments.
I loved Rory’s Proposal also by Lynda Renham, it had me smiling for days afterwards and this book is no different. It’s wonderfully uplifting, romantic and funny. Pure escapism. Anybody that enjoys a good romantic comedy will love this book. Sit back, get a glass of wine, break out the chocolate and enjoy.
Many thanks to the author for sending me a copy.
