Publisher's Summary

Tilly has the day from hell when she's sacked from her barristers' chambers in the morning, then finds her husband in bed with her former best friend in the afternoon. She escapes to her mother, Roxy - a sassy solicitor whose outrageous take on men, work, and family life is the despair of her more conventional daughter. Roxy comes up with a radical plan for their future - they'll set up an all-female law firm which will only champion women who have been cheated, put upon, attacked, ripped off, or ruined by the men in their lives.
In court, Tilly finds herself up against Jack Cassidy, the smooth-talking, politically incorrect, legal love god who broke her heart at law school. Jack is fluent in three languages - English, sarcasm, and flirtation...but if he's so loathsome, then why is she committing Acute Lust in the 3rd Degree?When a case lands on the doorstep that threatens to change all their lives, Tilly finds herself dangerously close to taking the law into her own hands.... Will Jack's cunning ways and expertise in emotional break and enter derail her quest for justice? Or will the women take on the boys...and win?

A book of many parts

I really should keep my 5 star scores for something special - this was something really special. I wish I could give it 7.

I bought this as I am enjoying Jennifer Vuletic's reading but this story was so much more. A very difficult background story handled with just the right level of sobriety before it had you laughing out loud. The characters are so well done you can picture them clearly as you listen with the feminist Aussie 50 something, lawyer mother with the "I'm not like my mother" prim, barrister daughter. Rox is a riot with a heart of gold getting so close to her clients that she opens her house to them.

Please let this be the start of a series.

Overall entertaining listen

I stuck with this after I lost interest at the halfway mark and it came good again towards the end. Some of the dialogue sounds contrived - it is probably witty when being read, but when actually spoken can sound long and unrealistically clever. The narrator does a decent job ,albeit with an exaggerated style in parts - Jack comes over as a caricature of smooth urbane and Nathan sounds like Joanna Lumley. A good dash of social commentary adds spice and weight .Overall entertaining listen
