Publisher's Write-Up

Georgia runs her own successful business with her energetic grandmother Cecilia. She loves her work, enjoys her friends - all that's missing is a Suitable Man.

But when tall, fair, gorgeous Rory Faulkner walks into her life, things start to go wrong with a vengeance. Not only does her business start to lose clients, but a series of increasingly dangerous accidents begin to look more and more suspicious.

Soon Georgia has to ask herself whether there is any connection between Rory, who is simply the best thing that's ever happened to her, and her business problems.

And whether she's prepared to run the risk to find out...

I do not know where Christina Jones gets her ideas from, but I am sure that long distance lorry driving must be one of the more obscure. (Unless you are a Stobart Spotter!!)

Georgia is a lady with a very vivid sense of colour, who is the co-owner of a haulage company. She drives a lorry when she needs to, and runs the office with her grandmother, who is a bit of a man-eater.

Georgia is a bit of a softie, really, she has to rescue every lame duck that she meets, this includes people down on their luck. She wears her heart on her sleeve, literally, as the jumpers that she wears all have cute animal motifs knitted into them, knitted for her by a lady whose family have outgrown hand knitted jumpers.

Unfortunately for Georgia, she has never met anyone to live up to the soft romantic notions that she has, until she meets a lorry driver from the agency that supplies short contract drivers to her firm.

Unfortunately, it is about this time that what seems to be industrial sabotage starts to cause problems for her company, along with the buy out of one of their local rivals.

You can't help but like Georgia and her Grandmother, who has the much more complicated love life of the two of them. A nice thing about this book is that Georgia has a racing horse, and it goes to Drew Fitzgerald's stable. Drew and Maddy, whom we met in the first book, Going the Distance, are friends of Georgia's. It makes for a great sense of continuity.
