Author: Jess Lea


In this quirky lesbian romantic mystery, a political reporter and a party volunteer who can’t stand each other join forces to find the truth behind an ice queen derailing Australia’s weirdest election.

 Nancy is sick of living in the share house from hell, getting dumped by women who aren’t that into her, and being stuck in dead-end jobs. It’s time to chase her dream to become a political journalist, get her own funky inner-city Melbourne place, and meet Ms Right.

Instead, she meets cranky George, a butch, tattooed bus driver and party volunteer who’s dodging a vengeful ex-girlfriend. George thinks Nancy is stuck up; Nancy thinks George is the rudest woman she’s ever met.

The warring pair is caught up in the crazy election campaign of Clara West, a maverick running on the bizarre promise to shut down the internet. Rich, sexy, and dangerous, Clara will stop at nothing in the pursuit of power.

Nancy and George must learn to trust each other and act fast if they want to stay alive.

    This is quite an entertaining read. Yes, the storyline is a serious one, but it’s also amusing in places which made me smile.

    It’s a murder mystery set in a by election with candidates that would make your toes curl. Then along comes an independent who stirs the plot and pot. She is scary, hilarious and outrageous. It all adds up to a quirky, highly entertaining story.

    I’ll admit this may not be everybody’s idea of a good story. But I found it fun and entertaining. Yes, I got the jokes and laughed out loud. And I thought one of the candidates followers a little over the top, I also found somethings funny. Although I do disagree with any social media bullying. Which I thought the author handled well.

    Yes. I would recommend this book. But you need to approach it with a light heart and open mind.

    Jess Lea chose the perfect title for her newest novel. Looking for Trouble is exactly what the two main characters in this story are doing, and on the few occasions where they are not looking for trouble, it seems to find them anyway.

    This book has it all. We have a budding romance between two very different people (George and Nancy) who seem to fall for each other in spite of themselves. There is a wacked-out by-election for a local Melbourne seat in Parliament. The story has mystery, intrigue and murder connected with this election. There is also an overabundance of bad guys, mostly involving the election. Some are zany, some are just misunderstood, but a few are quite sinister and dangerous.

    I read this book almost nonstop for several reasons. I really wanted to see how this crazy election would turn out. It was as wild as some of our U.S. elections. The murder mystery had more twists and turns than a roller coaster ride with several side mysteries happening within it. And I had to read and see if George and Nancy would ever figure out they were falling in love…and admit it when they did.
    To say that I thoroughly enjoyed this novel would be an understatement. I loved every page of this book, and I can’t wait to read more from this author.

    I received an ARC from Ylva Publishing for an honest review.
