The Queen of Hearts

The Queen of Hearts - P.J. Shann I'm usually more of a romantic comedy girl but I was looking for my next read and this was recommended. I have to say, I was not disappointed! The lead character, an ex-policeman-turned-taxi-driver, ends up in trouble when his ex-wife gets involved with the wrong crowd and they come after him in an effort to get to her. Mayhem and madness ensues!

The characters are absolutely brilliant. Joel, the hero is so lovably real and there are some brilliantly touching scenes with his young daughter. There's an interfering mother-in-law, a handful of villains who you will love to hate (wait for the hate to love bit at the end!) but my favourite character of all was the nosy neighbour who goes ninja on some strange characters who are watching Joel's house. I want a nosy neighbour like that!

The story was well-paced with a nice little twist at the end that I didn't see coming. The style of writing is witty and entertaining and I can't recommend this highly enough.
