Courting Trouble

Sometimes you have to take the law into your own hands

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?

Praise for Kathy

Reliably hilarious…A smart, witty read.


Bawdy and wise-cracking…she has a terrific turn of phrase. The best thing I read in this book was the last line: “To be continued…”

Daily Express

More joy from the Empress of Punning …sharp, funny and very readable.

Jo Brand

Sassy, witty, right on topic and rivetingly readable.

June Sarpong

It’s a novel of comic genius.
