Who is Sarah Broadhurst


You Drive Me Crazy by Carole Matthews

The last place Anna Terry expects to fall in love is in the waiting room of her divorce lawyer’s office. But that’s where she meets Nick Diamond and Cupid’s arrow strikes. If only they were in the mood… Anna’s had more than her fair share of heartache. Her first marriage ended before her pregnancy was over, and her second husband has disappeared, leaving her with a two-year-old son, a pre-pubescent daughter and not a penny to her name. Nick’s luck hasn’t been any better: his wife has run off with the local butcher - which wouldn’t be so bad if she wasn’t a vegetarian! His second-hand car dealership is in chaos and his mother is sure that line-dancing will mend his ‘Achy Breaky Heart’. When Anna gets a job as Nick’s secretary, what starts as a mild flirtation soon accelerates into overdrive – but that’s before their ex-partners show up and they’re all in for a bumpy ride.
