Monkey Business

Monkey Business

by Kathryn Ledson

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 24/01/2019


Fast-paced, funny and totally engaging, Monkey Business blends adventure and romance in an irresistible, laugh-out-loud read.

Erica Jewell thinks being a part-time vigilante is stressful enough without the added pressures of a demanding day job, annoying family and bossy cat. Now her mysterious lover has gone off on some clandestine mission, without leaving a forwarding address. Erica reckons that's typical of handsome hired-gun Jack Jones - he'd rather risk his life than his heart.

Then Erica discovers with a shock that Jack is missing-in-action on the jungle-infested island of Saint Sebastian. When no-one will help or even acknowledge Jack's existence, Erica knows she's his only chance. But negotiating her way around lawless and sweltering Sebastian, where monkey business abounds, proves far more dangerous than expected.
